That’s why I was sort of surprised to read that Kristen Stewart was listed in E!’s list of the Top Ten Most Inspiring Stars of 2012. Really? Kristen Stewart? I mean, she’s okay, but one of the 10 biggest heroes? I was confused. Then I read on and I was even more confused. Homegirl didn’t do any secret philanthropy or anything like that, she’s just getting recognition for fessing up to cheating on R-Patz instead of denying it. WHAT?! I mean, that’s a good love lesson–one of the best of 2012, we think, but it certainly doesn’t make her a hero in my book.
Maybe the writer of that story was under pressure to add more glitzy celebs to the roundup, but even still, they could have gone for Emma Watson who delivered food to people in need when she was in New York earlier this year, or any other celeb who’s donated money or done good work. I mean, didn’t Lady Gaga just do a big project with UNICEF? I don’t like her that much, but I think that’s more notable than Kristen Stewart’s apology.
K-Stew gets a lot of flack for being mopey, not wearing high heels, whatever–I’m not trying to add to that. It’s not her fault that some idiot named her one of the most inspiring heroes of 2012, and I seriously doubt even she thinks she belongs on that list!
What do you think? Would you list Kristen Stewart as one of your heroes? Who are your biggest heroes? Tell us in the comments!
