Kristen Stewart’s Murder: Twilight Eclipse Pictures
Stewart tells Hello! magazine:
“I don’t feel very comfortable on the red carpet. I look out there at a thousand people and I realize they could rush me and assassinate me. No security could protect me. Ostensibly they’re fans, but I think about them turning on me.”
Anorak’s Man in LA muses over the language:
Assassinate. Really? The Rat consulted our resident grammarian, Miss Gooch, and she confirmed what we thought all along… the word “assassinate” doesn’t generally refer to the murder of the common folk, or even Hollywood stars… it usually refers to political figures.
JFK was assassinated. John Lennon was merely murdered.
So. Kristen. You should not fear being assassinated. Your fear is of being murdered by the one Twilight fan not trying to grope one of the male stars or take a picture up Ashley Greene’s skirt.
