As we’ve reported before, there was earlier talk in Hollywood of Kristen Stewart playing Casey Anthony on the big screen, but now the actress is speaking out and is none too pleased about the rumor mill linking her with the controversial Florida mom.
A source tells US Weekly: “Her people are really annoyed about the Casey Anthony comparisons. Kristen wants that talk to blow over soon, because it looks really bad.”
The source adds: “She would never for no amount of money portray that girl.”
Casey was just acquitted this week over the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter Caylee, causing outrage with many celebrities who posted their disappointment soon after the verdict was announced on their Twitter pages.
Kudos to Kristen Stewart for passing up on the chance to play Casey in a film. We would probably skip it on our Netflix queue anyway.
