Hollywood movie star Kristen Stewart has been criticized for not smiling on the red carpet. And she’s not about to start smiling on the red carpet either (she’s afraid if she starts now people will think she has “sold out” in some way). Nor will Kristen Stewart smile much in her latest film, Camp X-Ray. The Twilight actress plays a young prison guard at Guantanamo who breaks the rules and befriends one of the prisoners.
Critics expect Stewart’s co-star, Peyman Moaadi, to deliver a tremendous performance as the prisoner in Camp X-Ray. The so-far little known Moaadi was born in 1971 in New York City to Iranian parents. His family moved back to Iran in 1977 when he was 5 years old. He studied engineering there before starting his film career as a screenwriter in the early 2000s. Moaadi began his acting career even later, in Oscar-winner Asghar Farhadi’s 2009 film About Elly-–a story of middle class families in Iran. Moaadi’s career is gaining heat right now. Off set, it’s said he can even make Kristen Stewart smile.
