Kristen Stewart had a 2016 that will long be remembered as one of the best years of her career. She surprised as a charming romantic foil in Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society,” stole Kelly Reichardt’s “Certain Women” from Michelle Williams and Laura Dern and gave another Olivier Assayas film her trademark magnetism (“Personal Shopper”). So what’s left for Stewart to do with just one month left in the year? The answer is be the star in a new music video for The Rolling Stones.
The band is releasing their acclaimed blues album “Blue and Lonesome” today, and they’ve celebrated with a freewheeling new video set to the song “Ride ‘Em On Down.” The clip finds Stewart cruising around an abandoned Los Angeles in a blue Ford Mustang. Accompanying her is a six pack of beer and a pack of cigarettes (which she smokes at a gas station, because she’s badass). Seriously, be more cool K. Stew.
Stewart also starred in “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” and “Equals” this year. She’s currently filming an untitled Lizzie Borden drama, and she’s set to make her directorial debut with a brand new short film that should premiere sometime next year. Watch the Stones’ music video below.
