Kristin talks with Huffington Post about GirlsByDesign:
quote:"What was the impetus for this project?
"Well, I think that being in this industry for as long as I have, especially during Smallville when I did teen magazines, I was noticing that, in my opinion, it seemed like there wasn't much out there that was inspiring young women to create and really explore themselves and what they want to do. There was a lot of stuff that really appealed to girls interests in beauty and makeup and fashion and boys. That was all there. But the other part of girls, I don't think was being appealed to. And it seems like they want that. At least in the experience that I've had with the young women I've interacted with. There's this passion that they have and there isn't an online or even a print outlet for them to utilize, apart from Girl Guides, and things like that. I want to do something that's a little more hip that they can go to."
Kristin mentioned by EW.com as a choice for the female lead for the Maximum Ride film:
quote:"Vampires are hot. We've known this way before Rob Pattinson ever donned glitter in Twilight (Bela Lugosi might not have inspired the shrieks of tweens nationwide, but hey, he still pulled it off, Hungarian accent and all). But mutant humans? I'm not so sure. But with news breaking this morning that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke might direct the adaptation of James Patterson's Maximum Ride series -- which follows a group of teens that are half-bird, half-human -- I'm beginning to wonder if the movie has the potential to be the next Twilight....
...But every teen-centric novel adaptation needs a heartthrob. So which hotties should play Maximum Ride, the series' main female character, and Fang, Max's strong right-hand man-bird? Kristin Kreuk (though she might be a tad too old)? Kat Dennings? Selena Gomez? Corbin Bleu? Joe Jonas? Thoughts, PopWatchers?"
quote:"Lastly, this morning I got an email from Kirstin Kreuk. Who is Kirsten you ask? Well, she saw my bio in the TED Fellows booklet and contacted me. She wrote: Firstly I would like to commend you on your amazing work. Your mission is beautiful.
My name is Kristin Kreuk... I am actress, most well-known for my role on the series Smallville. Which you may have never heard of having been overseas as consistently as you appear to have been. I was reading my TED Fellows booklet searching for inspiring young women, and you were one of the ladies that jumped out at me. I so love that you are utilizing art to help people build deeper connections to themselves and their communities.
What you have to know is...I LOVE SMALLVILLE...TV Tube baby that I am. (I also love Young & the Restless and YouTube). Kirstin plays Lana who is in love with Clark (Clark Kent). It's Superman during High School. Kirstin is inviting me to work on a project about young girls called GIRLS BY DESIGN and we are speaking tomorrow by phone. Talk about polymath experiences."

I received the Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Lisoundtrack yesterday in the mail and I gotta say I'm loving it! The music is so smoothing and beautiful, it's such a nice listen to have when you're just relaxing, while surfacing the web...which is what I'm basically doing right now! :)

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Posted by Webmistress on 2009-03-12
Original Music Composed by Stephen Endelman
Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI, available digitally (iTunes and Amazon Digital) and in stores. Stephen Endelman (Home of the Brave, The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill, But Came Down A Mountain) composed the score.
English-born Stephen Endelman is a composer, arranger and producer. He moved to New York City in 1992 to develop his career in film music. His first score was for Nancy Savoca's film Household Saints and then Robert DeNiro's directorial Debut A Bronx Tale. Endelman's wide-ranging works have spanned many styles from his minimalist, modern score for Flirting with Disaster to the rich orchestral tapestry for The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill, But Came Down a Mountain.
In addition to his film composing credits, Endelman has proved to be an expert arranger and producer. The 2004 film De-Lovely earned Grammy nominations for Best Soundtrack of the Year and Best Pop Male Vocal for Elvis Costello's "Let's Misbehave." Endelman produced and arranged both the on-camera music and the Gold-certified soundtrack which held steady on Billboard's Top 200 pop chart for over a year. In 2002 Endelman also received critical acclaim for Bride of the Wind, the story of Alma Mahler (wife of composer Gustav Mahler), for which Endelman served as composer and arranger. The soundtrack featured soprano Renée Fleming and pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
Warriors converge on the streets of Bangkok, preparing for the ultimate battle of terror versus beauty, light versus darkness and good versus evil. STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI is the second live-action film based on the Street Fighter video game franchise. The film follows the story of Chun-Li (Kristin Kreuk from TV's Smallville) in her quest for justice. The film also stars Meal McDonough as M. Bison, Chris Klein as Charlie, Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog, and Black-Eyed Peas singer Taboo as Vega.
Hyde Park Entertainment and Capcom present STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI released in theaters nationwide on February 27, 2009. STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI original soundtrack on Lakeshore Records are available via iTunes and Amazon Digital and in stores!
quote:"I was lucky," Shou says, "because Kristen is very athletic. We have this one scene, the sort of show me your stuff scene, where she attacks. I was surprised because she was pretty good, her timing was good, she did not punch hard and it was easy to fight with her. She was in Thailand two months before production, training with Dion (Dion Lam, the film's fight director), and she knew the choreography like the back of her hand."
An Eric Hamber Secondary graduate mentions Kristin in her blog:
quote:"I graduated from Eric Hamber Secondary, which is quiet popular in the world of highschool musical (on top of drama and concerts/bands). We have been known for our strong Art Department. We have one of the largest concerts/bands classes.
Oh, and I should mention that Kristin Kreuk is an alumni. Kekeke..something that we're extremely proud of. Btw, ntar ya gue potoin Kristin Kreuk's picture from her graduation-class picture that are hung on the main hallway. She doesn't change at all, udah cakep dari highschool ternyata."
There is a very important bond we have with our mothers... And whether we feel good about it or not so good about it, it is important regardless. This newsletter is about that connection with the person who has nurtured our life. The BOD (and Kendra) share some beautiful and extremely personal stories. I think you will all appreciate their honesty and warmth as much as I have!
quote:"You'll want to defrag everything you've got after you see this week's All-Geek Chick edition of Women of the Web featuring the likes of actress Rachel Nichols, Chun-Li's Kristin Kreuk, and of course Megan Fox.
Sure, you're a geek, but it doesn't mean that the lades you ogle can't be of the hottest variety, which is precisely why we're here. Enjoy!"
Josie Ho (Cantana) talks about her scenes with Kristin in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li to Star-Ecentral.com:
quote:"In one scene, Ho’s Cantana has a duel with Kreuk’s Chun-Li in a restroom.
“She not only had to crash through a glass door in that scene and break it; her back also had to ram into the wall behind it. We ended up shooting that scene 35 times!” Ho revealed. “I gave it my all and kicked her real hard each time. When filming fight scenes, we didn’t hold back. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have looked authentic and audiences wouldn’t be convinced.”
Ho said that she was worried about causing injury and had asked Kreuk to use protective padding but Kreuk wouldn’t hear of it.
“She insisted it didn’t hurt at all so she didn’t use the padding. For me, however, the pain was very real."
Kristin's Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li co-star Robin Shou (Gen) talks about Kristin in TV interview:
quote:"Robin Shou just did this interview on a Vietnamese channel and the interviewer asked him if Kristin was cool to work with?
He said that she was very shy in the beginning, always reading, especially in the beginning between takes. Along the filming they had alot of fun together, messing around on takes. He also said that he was especially impressed with Kristin abilities to learn to fight so quick...that she has very good control over her movements. Hard worker with her scenes. He was joking about how everyone was scared that he would hurt her, but it was the other way around. Kristin was the one hurting him...kicking him and bruising his arms. "

Hey guys, so I've been thinking about this for awhile now and finally came to the decision that I honestly, truly do need help running this site!

quote:"Q: Did you explore your Asian heritage while you were growing up?
A: I remember I went to a summer camp where I learned Mandarin and did ribbon dancing and cooked Chinese food because my mom wanted me to learn about my heritage that she doesn't really know that much about either. Coming from a mixed household, I'm used to hearing things like, 'She's not enough Chinese,' or 'She's not enough white.' I like to say that I'm just mashed up in the middle, but I like it. I like being in that place. I can travel anywhere in the world and I can pretty much fit in.
Q: Who was the biggest influence on you?
A: Both my parents because they allowed me to have my own opinions and ideas. I wasn't raised with a specific religion. I wasn't raised to judge people in any way. I was lucky enough to grow up with parents who encouraged me to believe what I wanted to believe and to educate myself, and they've been really supportive of the path that I've chosen"
