In the interview, Jules Stewart attempts to gain publicity for her new film, K-11.
Stewart told Amy Kaufman of the LA Times, "It's extremely frustrating for me, because she's 22 years old and I'm almost 60. In terms of life experience - hello! - I have it all over her. It's not like I came out of nowhere."
She continued, "To the world, I have no name. I am 'Mama Stew' - that's what they call me, all of her zillions of fans. Or I'm Kristen's mom; I'm famous for being her mom. I have my own career. My own thing going on. And I would hate to think that it's because of my 22-year-old that I got to direct a movie."
Jules Stewart is known to be very supportive of her daughter Kristen, but it seems that she has difficulty coming to terms with her daughter's influence on her own career.
Jules's film is K-11 and opened on Friday, March 15. It looks at self-identified gay and transgender inmates in the Los Angeles Men's Central Jail.
Jules Stewart has stated that she wanted her daughter Kristen to play the leading role in the film.
The film's main character is a rape victim, and the movie features an on-screen rape.
However, Kristen had to pull out because of her busy schedule, in particular filming Snow White and the Huntsman at the time.
Jules Stewart told Us Weekly, "She kept working and she kept working and she kept working. And she got really big and we were still really small and I was like, 'Go! Go do Snow White, please, go make those big films honey, that's all wonderful!"
Instead, Portia Doubleday of Youth in Revolt will play the role.
Jules Stewart has spent three decades in Hollywood as a script supervisor on major successes like the films Mortal Kombat and The Little Giants.
