Kristen Stewart Says She's Doing 'Fine'

Originally posted 09/07/2012 03:05PM

During her first red carpet appearance since her cheating scandal broke, Kristen Stewart barely alluded to the rift in her personal life.

She was greeted Thursday evening at the Toronto International Film Festival by hoards of enthusiastic fans yelling, "Kristen, I love you!" and cheers of support.

When asked how she was doing, Stewart, 22, said merely, "I'm fine," according to the Associated Press.

Stewart, without referring to the scandal, told Reuters the support from fans was "amazing" and said she was thankful "to know that everyone is here."

Otherwise, the actress, who was promoting her new film On the Road, stuck to questions about the movie. During a Q&A after the screening, Stewart said playing the emotional side of her character, Marylou, was the most difficult thing about the role. "She loved so openly – and that's hard," said Stewart.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart Step Out Simultaneously – 2,500 Miles Apart

Originally posted 09/06/2012 10:00PM

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart both stepped out at high-profile, star-studded events on Thursday – and they were 2,500 miles apart.

When Stewart – making her first official public appearance since the cheating scandal that rocked their relationship – appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote her new movie On the Road, the crowd cheered, "Kristen, I love you!" After posing for photos in a Zuhair Murad dress with costar Garrett Hedlund, she made her way over to fans to sign autographs.

"I've loved this book since I was 14," she told reporters. She also alluded to being as excited for On the Road as she would be for any Twilight film.

Pattinson, meanwhile, appeared with Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser and other members of the Twilight cast to present a new 90-second clip of Breaking Dawn: Part 2 at the MTV Video Music Awards in downtown L.A. (You can watch the heart-pounding clip below!)

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence Movies Get Oscar Buzz Going at Toronto Film Fest

Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lawrence Movies Get Oscar Buzz Going at Toronto Film Fest

The calendar says it's still summer and the kids call it back to school, but I say it's Oscar season.

Yes, already! I know this because on Thursday the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) blows into Canada, with 372 movies in competition representing some 72 countries. Sure, some of the buzzy movies from Cannes and Venice pop up, but Toronto is where everything starts to shake out. As usual, the biggest of the A-listers will be in town, towing their Oscar-bait projects with them.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis open the festivities with the world premiere of their time-travel mind-bender Looper, about a mob hitman (Gordon-Levitt) hired to kill his own future self (Willis). I'm not sure why you'd take that gig if you were Hitman the Younger, but I'll take it on faith that the film offers a convincing explanation.

"Everything!" she told PEOPLE on Friday night at the premiere of Clooney's film The Ides of March at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Clooney, 50, and Keibler, 31, are taking their budding romance semi-public at the event – they didn't walk the red carpet together but they did party with pals afterwards at Deq lounge at the Ritz-Carlton, the second night they were spotted together there.

PEOPLE's Critic Rates Toronto Film Fest's Biggest Surprises

PEOPLE's Critic Rates Toronto Film Fest's Biggest Surprises

Originally posted 09/18/2010 06:00AM

Natalie Portman’s extraordinary performance in Black Swan may have been a foregone conclusion, but there were some delightful moments in the Toronto International Film Festival that took me by surprise. Here are a few:

The Metaphysical Clint Eastwood:
The guy can do anything, sure. But who knew he wanted to explore such a big, ethereal question as what happens after you die? In Hereafter, he intertwines three stories of people who have brushes with death, including Matt Damon as a reluctant psychic, slowly unspooling their lives, then bringing them together in unexpected and not altogether tidy ways. It’s certainly not Eastwood’s best film, but it’s a welcome departure for a man who tends to dwell in a world that’s entirely more visceral and elemental.

Hoping to get a glimpse of Ben Affleck, shoot the breeze with James Franco, or catch a canoodle between Shia LaBeouf and Carey Mulligan? Then pack your bags for Toronto, because those are just of the few of the glittery names hitting town for the 35th Toronto International Film Festival.

Speaking of The Town, Affleck's heist drama of that name is one of the festival's most hotly anticipated films, along with Mulligan's mesmerizing Never Let Me Go, about children raised to be spare parts for wealthier, luckier humans. Having seen both, we can already declare them more than worthy (and look for Mulligan's name on Best Actress ballots come Oscar time).

Also generating heavy buzz is Franco in 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle's film about Aron Ralston, the hiker forced to cut off his own arm after being trapped by a boulder, and Natalie Portman in Black Swan, a dark (some say creepy) film about the ballet world. Word is, we should expect to see Portman giving Mulligan some solid competition come awards season.
