(Newser) – We have our Oscars, the French have their Cesars, and now Kristen Stewart has one of the latter, too. Yesterday, she became the first American actress to win the prestigious film award in France, reports Variety. She won as best supporting actress for her role in Cloud of Sils Maria, co-starring Juliette Binoche. And it sounds as if this won't be a one-time thing for Stewart. "There is a great divide between what motivates people to make films in the States and to compare it to what motivates people to make films here, and I kinda prefer it here," she said, as quoted by the Hollywood Reporter.
