    Why Was Kristen Stewart MIA From Her Mom's Cannes Movie Premiere?

    Happy Cannes week, Stewart family!

    While Kristen Stewart's film On the Road doesn't premiere at the French film festival until Wednesday (ahh, so excited!), her mama, Jules Stewart, screened her own directorial debut, K-11, last night during the Marche du Film in Cannes.

    So, where was K.Stew for the big night? She does have a cameo in the movie, after all…

    Kristen was on her Snow White and the Huntsman grind, of course!

    If you recall, Kristen was originally supposed to have a starring role in her mother's movie, but had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts. And it looks like her insane calendar (the chick has two movies coming out in the next week), kept her away from the premiere.

    K.Stew's reps confirm to us that the Twilight actress was unable to attend the screening because she was across the globe in Mexico continuing her promotional tour for SWATH (sadly, no additional Fifty Shades of Grey monologues came out of her trip south of the border).

    Either way, the ladies certainly did each other proud:

    Jules tweeted from the French Riviera about her Cannes style, writing, "Wore a dress last night for the first time I can remember, a little black number, but ditched the designer heels for black Converse Chucks."

    Like mother, like daughter, right?! Kristen just opted for sneakers under her designer threads at last week's Snow White premiere!

    And though she was all the way across the Atlantic, Kristen did seem to have her mom on her mind:

    "The whole cast is excellent. I cannot pick one favorite, but Kate [del Castillo] is brilliant," Kristen gushed to reporters in Mexico about the K-11 actress. "I went one day to visit the set and she is great—super relaxed, very talented, very pretty, but mostly true."

    Aww! Well at least the Stewart women will be reunited for the On the Road premiere Wednesday—can't wait to see them hit the red carpet with Robert Pattinson!
