Kristen StewartÃÂ covers the new issue of V Magazine, their Spring issue. Kristen is promoting her new movie, ‘On the Road’, which I swear is never going to be released. (Seriously, what is taking so long!!)
Here are some bits from the interview:
On being interviewed for the mag:ÃÂ Upon walking into thisÃÂ interviewÃÂ a few minutes behindÃÂ schedule, she proffers a hug and an offer to Ã¢â¬Åstay until you get everything you need.Ã¢â¬Â There are no publicists, handlers, ringleaders, or beefcake bodyguards hanging aroundÃ¢â¬Â¦ Ã¢â¬ÅI really love peopleÃ¢â¬Â¦ You canÃ¢â¬â¢t not as an actor. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s just strange meeting someone and going, Okay, youÃÂ startat square one and I will try and make up for what you already think you know about me.Ã¢â¬Â
On getting over being afraid of being who she is:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI have realized that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but itÃ¢â¬â¢s a difficult thing. You canÃ¢â¬â¢t see over, people canÃ¢â¬â¢t see in, and you also canÃ¢â¬â¢t see out. So IÃ¢â¬â¢ve gotten quite comfortable with just being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing: itÃ¢â¬â¢s not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them.Ã¢â¬Â
‘On the Road’:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI would have done anything, I would have played any part,Ã¢â¬Â says Stewart. Ã¢â¬ÅMarylou is remarkable because sheÃ¢â¬â¢s got a tough core. When youÃ¢â¬â¢re a teenager, a year can be crippling to maneuver through. YouÃ¢â¬â¢re just out there questioning things, and so to be completely okay with that and not think that thereÃ¢â¬â¢s anything wrong with you, thatÃ¢â¬â¢s something IÃ¢â¬â¢ve recently understood. IÃ¢â¬â¢m 22. Marylou started this whole thing when she was 15.Ã¢â¬Â
On it being strange portraying someone else on film:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s a pretty fÃ¢â¬âking odd thing to want to pretend to be another person,Ã¢â¬Â she says, Ã¢â¬Åand then have a lot of other people who watch you do that. You have this experience of reading something, and if you donÃ¢â¬â¢t bring it to life, youÃ¢â¬â¢re basically deleting it. Every day of shooting youÃ¢â¬â¢re depriving the world of having that. The responsibility is amazing.Ã¢â¬Â
She’s a “normal” girl:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅUntil you really get to know the woman behind the character, itÃ¢â¬â¢s difficult to connect the dots. IÃ¢â¬â¢m a contemporary, sensitive, normal girl, and itÃ¢â¬â¢s difficult to try and empathize with someone who seems to have a lack of empathy. She seems a bit callous in the book. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s literally the farthestÃ¢â¬Â¦I have never encountered a person that had their nerves so fÃ¢â¬âking close to the surface.Ã¢â¬Â
Doing Broadway?ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅTheater is a completely different way of working, but, yeah, I would be very much down.Ã¢â¬Â
She’d love to make an ensemble movie:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅThere are so many cool girls out there!Ã¢â¬Â she says, name-checking Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, and her best friend, Dakota Fanning.
On tearing down her walls:ÃÂ Ã¢â¬ÅI am not closed off to anything right now,Ã¢â¬Â she says, smiling. Ã¢â¬ÅThat is what I was saying about not having any more walls up. I donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to deprive myself of any bit of life.Ã¢â¬Â
I really like these pictures. I tend to think that Kristen would make a much better model than she would an actress. I don’t think the girl can act – AT ALL. Every time you see her in a movie, she’s just Kristen Stewart playing someone new. I feel like she’s never able to step outside herself and actually break through with a character. I’m curious to see how she does in ‘On the Road’, because if she’s going to do well in any movie, it’s gonna be this one. I really hope it’s a good movie.
