Kristen Stewart rose to superstardom as a result of her involvement in the “Twilight” franchise, but now she is taking her time in picking her next projects. She says that she wants to follow her heart and work on movies that interest her.
When asked if she’s a rebel, she revealed, “I think it all started when I stopped listening to others and I decided to take a break from the big Hollywood productions to focus on films for which I earn less but that I believe will repay me later on instead. If not financially, at least personally.”
She went on to say, “However, it is true. I’m a rebel. I mean, I prefer doing things my way and revolutionize what I don’t like instead.”
With regard to happiness, she said that they key is finding out what you want out of life. She said, “I believe it’s important to figure out as soon as possible what you really want. Someone still doesn’t know at 50-years-old. I think it’s essential if you want to reach the true happiness.”
She continued, “I believe that learning is an ongoing process; you never really stop to discover who you really are. Life changes you constantly. I do a job that allows me to discover other souls and that makes me go deeply into the mind and thoughts of other women and it’s a process that helps me to grow.”
Kristen Stewart does…but she doesn’t necessary classify it as “good,” just kinda…painful.
The actress opened up about her high-profile romance with ex Robert Pattinson while promoting her new film, Equals, at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sunday.
“It was incredibly painful,” Stewart, 25, told The Daily Beast on Sunday. “Ugh, f—king kill me.”
She also could relate to her Equals costar Nicholas Hoult, who split from Jennifer Lawrence while filming the project in Japan in August 2014.
“It was a really good time for both of us to make this movie,” Stewart explained. “Not all of my friends have been through what I’ve been through, or what some people have tasted at a relatively speaking young age, and we were not expected to do anything. Everything that we did was explorative, and a meditation on what we already knew.”
Their emotional state also helped them get into character.
“We all felt akin by how much we’ve been through, and to utilize that is so scary. And to acknowledge it, reassess, and jump back into it? Usually you want to move on. But at least we could use some of that for some good,” she continued. “This movie was a meditation on firsts, and a meditation on maintaining, and a meditation on the ebbs and flows of what it’s like to love someone—your feelings versus your ideals, the bursting of bubbles, the shattering of dreams you thought were possible, and what you have to contend with as things get more realistic.”
She added: “Relationships — you just never f—king know.”
Kristen Stewart graced the cover of Nylon magazine looking very Kristen Stewart-y (androgynous clothes, lots of eye makeup, messed up hair) and talking a big Kristen Stewart game (vague and cool and desperately looking to be liked). The takeway from the interview is that she is comfortable with her dating life, but that doesn’t mean she wants to tell the world about it.
The American Ultra actress tells Nylon in its September cover story that she feels reluctant when it comes to labeling her sexuality:
“If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it,” she says. “But I am an actress, man. I live in the f—— ambiguity of this life and I love it.”
Stewart, 25, says she believes in fluidity, and that in a few years she doesn’t think people will need to associate with the titles of “gay” or “straight.”
“It’s like, just do your thing,” she tells the mag.
The Twilight actress says she chooses to remain vague about her sexual orientation because she doesn’t feel she has the “perspective” to do otherwise.
“I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job,” she says. “Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving … I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.”
Hey, at least she doesn’t think she’s as important as people think she is. I hate that she’s like, “I have no opinion so I’m gonna lay low,” because she could be way more of a LGBT role model. That being said at least she’s not being totally obnoxious and Raven Simone-like about her opinions. Yeech!
What do you think of her orientation- or lack thereof?
Elle UK’s September cover girl is Kristen Stewart, and is it just me or do her covers always make her seem greasy and forelorn?
Covers aside, the inside of the mag always has an interview where K stew is essentially saying, “don’t hate me,” “I hate fame,” and “I’m cool, I promise.” This one’s no exception. Elle UK has released some interview excerpts and a video:
Whether she smiles: “The whole smiling thing is weird because I actually smile a lot. I literally want to be like, ‘Dude, you would think I was cool if you got to know me.’”
She’s not anti-social media: “I’m not anti-social media. I just haven’t decided to do it. The idea of addressing such a massive group… If I don’t know who I’m talking to it doesn’t make any f**king sense to me.”
Feminism, apologies: “I apologize constantly, incessantly…. There’s something so natural about saying ‘yes’, I think with women there’s a natural inclination to want to satisfy people.”
Her style: She prefers “comfort and practicality” over anything else. “I wear jeans and—I always say this and it’s so boring to do fashion interviews for magazines … I don’t really have a fashion icon. I’ve never tried to emulate someone’s thing.”
Toughness: “I like to make people think that I am.”
