In case you missed it, the stars were out in full force at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). At the biennial festival, which is arguably the biggest in the world, both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson graced the red carpet. The former’s new movie, Dangerous  (which is also the name of the exhibition it was premiered in), is a romantic drama about a famous Hollywood actress (Stewart) who finds love and happiness with an Italian photographer (Pattinson).

The exhibition, where Dangerous was on display, was curated by Stewart’s sister Lily  (who also serves as the movie’s producer) and was dedicated to the memory of Grace  (Stewart’s late mother), who died of cancer . The sister also opened a few panels showing behind-the-scenes work and other personal items from her sister’s collection. The collection, which spans over a decade and features works from both Grace  and Lily’s  personal art galleries, reflects on their lives, loves, travels, and relationships. The sisters collaborated with famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier on the exhibition, which they curated together. While most of the exhibition was in black and white, Demarchelier interspersed in it colorful images from his extensive collection.

Besides the stars, the biggest news item to come out of TIFF was that Captain Marvel had the most profitable opening weekend at the box office. If you’re curious, you can find out how many times Captain Marvel or Shazam! has opened in theaters here.

Opening Night: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson On the Red Carpet

The spotlight was undoubtedly on the actors as they arrived on the red carpet for the opening night film of the TIFF. Both Stewart and Pattinson looked stunning in their costumes. Pattinson sported a dark blue suit with a pink shirt and tie, while Stewart wore a white dress with a blue sash. After being seated, the audience stood and applauded as the stars made their way to the podium. Stewart, who was visibly overwhelmed, thanked the audience for coming out and introduced her co-star, who also seemed a little startled.

Pattinson, who gave a speech before the film, briefly mentioned that this was his first time in Toronto and that it was “an honor to be here.” He then launched into a funny impersonation of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, which went down well with the crowd. He also noted that he and Stewart were filming Unbroken: A World War II Story in the city. He wrapped up his speech with a little joke: “And, please, don’t be loud. We’re trying to film a movie here.”

The audience then laughed and applauded as Stewart and Pattinson made their way back to their seats. For the next 90 minutes, they were on hand to sign autographs, pose for pictures, and meet and greet with fans. According to the Toronto Sun, around 300 people lined up to meet Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart after the screening, with some even scaling the walls to get his or her picture taken with the actor or actress. They also reportedly appeared in-character for nearly every scene in the movie.

Dangerous: An Exhibition About Kristen Stewart’s Life And Times

The following day, the media were treated to a special screening of Dangerous, which celebrated its world premiere at TIFF. As the lights came up at the end of the film, those in attendance rose and gave a standing ovation. Afterward, Stewart graciously thanked the audience and noted how much she loved working with director Nicole  Sweeney. She also mentioned that she and Pattinson had “just shot [their] honeymoon movie,” which could be a reference to their Breaking News-themed wedding in France last June.

The exhibition, which was curated by Stewart’s sister Lily, was named Dangerous and was on display at TIFF until October 22. The show consisted of black-and-white images of Stewart’s personal life and times, as well as some of her famous friends and collaborators. The actress has said that this is the largest collection of her work to date. She mentioned that the images come from “most of [her] personal circle,” but did not reveal any details about which friends or family members had lent their work for the exhibition.

According to the Toronto Star, the exhibition showcased “love letters, diaries, and drawings.” Of course, there were also numerous pictures of Stewart and Pattinson on the red carpet and elsewhere. Also included in the mix were images of Stewart’s late mother, Grace (who died of cancer in 2018), and her sister, Lily. The newspaper further noted that the two “worked together on a special project to celebrate their mom’s life. It was a chance to gather her photos and work she did over the years.”

While Stewart plays an actress in Dangerous, she is best known for her role in Twilight, which also happens to be the title of the exhibition. Inspired by that bestselling series, which was adapted from an equally successful novel, Stewart’s character is a struggling actress who falls in love with a famous director (Pattinson). In the story, Stewart’s character undergoes a spiritual journey that leads her to self-discovery and eventually to happiness.

According to the SunDangerous is “a love letter to fans, [who] will see a glimpse of their favorite actress’ private moments in the artistry of her lifestyle and the people she loves.” The newspaper further wrote: “Most importantly, it’s a love letter to fans, which the opening night audience got and seemed to thoroughly enjoy. Audience members gave a standing ovation at the end of the movie, and members of the cast and crew, including Stewart and Pattinson, gave the room a big hug. Everyone involved did exactly what they were supposed to do to make the other feel comfortable and confident in their relationship.”

Whether you loved or hated Twilight, it’s clear that Stewart’s performance as an actress was worth noting. After the premiere of Dangerous, the Toronto Sun tweeted: “Kristen Stewart’s performance was so good in #Dangerous that you almost didn’t notice Pete [D’Arcy] was absent. That’s something. […] And don’t worry, she’ll be back. It was only a matter of time.”

What’s Next For Stewart?

With her 20th birthday just around the corner, it’s safe to say that Stewart has a lot in the works. Besides the upcoming wedding to Pattinson, she has numerous projects in development, including a lead role in a big-budget remake of the 1950s classic, Somewhere In Between. She also has a starring role in Mamma Mia!, a film based on the popular Mamma Mia! series of stage musicals about Anna and her mother, Clarisse. The film will be released in February 2021.

What’s Next For Pattinson?

Following the premiere of Dangerous, the Toronto Sun tweeted: “@CaptnMarvel and @KStewart0486 have joined @RobertPattinson961 on his @TiffanyAndCo road trip to @Toronto2019! The couple look like they’re having a blast, and the journey has been documented on @YouTube. We can’t wait to see the videos!”

Pattinson, who wore a blue suit and white shirt for the occasion, is set to star in two upcoming films. First, he’ll be seen as the lead in The Private Life of Stan Lee, a black comedy about the legendary Marvel Comics creator. The movie will premiere this November at the Toronto Film Festival and will then head to theaters.
