Here are some of the most controversial portrayals:
Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett The Runaways (2010)
Fans of the 1970s teen-rock band were not convinced that Kristen Stewart, who is most famous for playing Bella in the soppy Twilight series, would have what it takes to play the "Queen of Rock'n'Roll". The "Bad Reputation" singer was a formidable character, and The Runaways changed how the public perceived girl bands. As Stewart noted at the time, "They were the first girls to ever play aggressive, sexual assertive rock'n'roll." Jett was actively involved in the project and Stewart's performance ended up being the best thing about the film, which many accused of being far too tame.
