Chris Weitz Rallies For A Kristen Stewart, Zoe Saldana Throw Down At The MTV Movie Awards

Kristen Stewart has faced her share of vampires over the course of two “Twilight” movies. Zoe Saldana waged an epic battle to win back Pandora in “Avatar.” The two ladies will show down on Sunday night in the Best Female Performance category of the 2010 MTV Movie Awards (also nominated is Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried and Sandra Bullock).

With five nominations each, the night is shaping up to be a “New Moon”/”Avatar” fight to the finish. “New Moon” director Chris Weitz knows who he’s rooting for. Spoiler alert: it’s exactly who you think.

“Kristen is my girl, and I think that she should win,” he told MTV News. “She’s a fantastic actress.”

Chris’ endorsement of Kristen comes as no surprise, since he has been very vocal about praising his young “New Moon” stars. But instead of ballots to decide the winner, Chris said he’s hoping for another kind of contest. “Maybe they should resolve it with kind of an MMA [mixed martial arts] thing.”

Zoe’s no stranger to action movies, so we’re sure she’d be a pro at mixed martial arts. But what about Kristen? Chris said he thinks she’s got more fight in her than you’d expect. He’d love to see the two ladies throw down.

“Kristen’s scrappy,” he said. “She’s wiry. She’s scrappy.”

Don’t miss the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, airing live from Los Angeles on Sunday, June 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
