Kristen Stewart has been named ‘actress of the decade’

The actor is set to receive the Hollywood Critics Association award early next year

Ahead of her starring role as French new wave actor Jean Serberg in Benedict Andrews’ upcoming film Serberg, the Hollywood Critics Association has named Kristen Stewart the Actress of the Decade, the first award of its kind.

Stewart has starred in a vast amount of films over this decade, including leading roles in The RunawaysPersonal ShopperClouds of Sils Maria, and most recently, Charlie’s Angels. Last year, she starred alongside Chloë Sevigny in psychological thriller Lizzie.

Also receiving an award is Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve, who’s working on a reboot TV series of Frank Herbert’s Dune, featuring Timothée Chalamet.

Back in September, Stewart – who came out in 2017, after describing herself as “so gay” in an SNL monologue – revealed that she was told to hide her sexuality in the past in order to increase her chances of being cast in certain films. She told Harper’s Bazaar: “I have fully been told, ‘if you just do yourself a favour, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie’.”

The 29-year-old recently addressed the box office failure of Charlie’s Angels. She said to The Playlist (via Comic Book): “Well, to be honest with you, I think if I had made a movie that wasn’t good and one that I wasn’t proud of and a lot of people saw it, I would be devastated.

“Luckily I’m not feeling gutted because I really am proud of the movie. And I think that the kind of the climate that we’re living in right now is polarising and it’s weird and it’s kind of hard to promote a movie like that. And I think trying to have a really complicated, overly politicised feminist conversation in a five minute TV interview about Charlie’s Angels….I’m like, ‘Dude, we just wanted to have a good time’.”

Stewart will be awarded Actress of the Decade next year, January 9, 2020, but in all realness, we called it back in 2017.
