A Student/Teacher Relationship On the SWATH Set - Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders

An actress who has said she wants to direct is learning how to see the scene from her director - to stand outside of herself.
Sanders is directing a scene, dressed casually but with some thought, standing relaxed, competent with natural authority IMO. His is not a tense set.
Kristen has not looked this young and carefree since way before Twilight. Unguarded and happy. Rupert looks pleased and happy that she feels this way that she feels like a CHILD!

Kristen is explaining her answer to a question in a competent way. Sanders is listening , focussed.  Stewart is not fussing with her hair, or waving her arms, just quietly saying what she wants to say. Maybe she is not exactly eloquent, but this situation does not require eloquence, only clear direct language. She has learned this on the SWATH set, as she did not possess this public level of confidence before now.

Where did she acquire it? Her director Sanders has said she contributed important observations during filming. Does this mean he listened to her?

When someone values your observations, listens to you, you feel validated, your intelligence feels validated.

This is important if you have not had much formal schooling.

It also means you have not had your perceptions shaped by the public educational system.
See my review of the wonderful film on this subject Monsieur Lazhar. 

Informal, relaxed, still no flirting. Kristen is learning not trying to seduce. Sanders is pleased that she is learning what he has to teach her. That's all I see. Just the fact that they have a good working relationship, that they like each other.

Not once have we seen him use The Gaze, the all important variable - according to deRougemont  on seduction .  Nice good looking guy.

Speaking about his lead actress in the role at one of the movie's premieres last month, Rupert said he was thrilled by Kristen’s performance.
He told E! News: 'She's got a great spirit, she's really quite rebellious...and feisty and kind of wild. And that's really what I wanted the modern Snow White to have.
'I didn't want her to be timid and I didn't want her to be frightened and relying on men, you know.
'She's very strong and very driven, and I think that's true in her personal life... She's got a big weight of the world on her shoulders and she carries it incredibly well.'
