DALLAS - I hadn't been standing in Dealey Plaza more than five minutes when I watched a man dash out into the street to pose for a picture. He was heading straight for a white X in the pavement that marks the location of John F. Kennedy's limousine when the 35th president was fatally shot on the afternoon of Nov. 22, 1963. The man stopped on the X, adjusted his feet and smiled. Then he looked nervously in the direction of oncoming traffic before running back to the safety of the sidewalk.

It is, Kristen Stewart agrees, just like falling in love. "It's just a very familiar, necessary feeling when you read a script you want to do," the actress says, coming alive at just the memory. "I've gone with my gut, taken a lot of the thinking away, and been very lucky. "As an artist," she continues, her energy rising, "If you view what you do as product, you'll never do anything true to yourself, never do anything you're proud of. I've never thought, 'My career should go in this direction.' There's no way to be tactical for me. " PHOTOS: Sundance Film Festival 2014 | The Scene Stewart got that familiar feeling when she read writer-director Peter Sattler's script for "Camp X-Ray," which has its debut Friday as part of the Sundance Film Festival's dramatic competition.

It looks like it's all downhill from here: Eva Longoria has been named Maxim's Woman of the Year. In January. Nothing like getting the routine stuff done early, right? Longoria graces the men's magazine's January/February cover in a skimpy tank top, but inside the mag (via E! News ) insists she's really a homebody who doesn't fall back on her looks alone. "One thing people are usually surprised about when they get to know me is how domestic I am. So when you see the sexy Maxim cover and then you put it against me in an apron with flour in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image," the former "Desperate Housewives" star said in an interview that was rescheduled to allow her to wrap up her thesis in Chicano studies, which she earned last year from Cal State Northridge. Twice married, most recently to NBA player Tony Parker, she's now dating Televisa honcho Jose "Pepe" Antonio Baston.
