Kristen Stewart graces the October cover of Vogue UK and talked to the fashion magazine about the awkward side of fame.
"I know that if you haven't thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition. But, dude, honestly? I can't," Stewart told Vogue UK. "People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I'm not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, 'OK, I'm really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?' I wouldn't know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can't."
On Thursday, Stewart will make her first red carpet appearance since the split, at the premiere of "On The Road" at the Toronto Film Festival. The movie is slated for release on December 21, 2012.
In the film, which is an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic beat novel of the same name, Stewart plays 16-year-old Marylou while Garrett Hedlund stars as Dean Moriarty and Sam Riley plays Sal Paradise. The film also stars Kirsten Dunst, Viggo Mortensen, Elisabeth Moss, Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi and Terrance Howard.
Stewart, whose character MaryLou is based on Neal Cassady's young wife, said that though she wasn't alive in the 1960's, she relates to the rebellious Beat Generation.
"There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version," she said. "It's not necessarily a rebellious thing, it's just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I'm fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn't even alive then. It's the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do. People who don't get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive."
The 22-year-old actress recently made headlines after admitting that she cheated on Robert Pattinson with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. Stewart released a press statement on July 25 and described it as a "momentary indiscretion."
"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," Stewart had said at the time. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob [Pattinson]. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."
Stewart and Pattinson will presumably be forced to appear together to promote the final installment in the vampire series, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," which is slated for release on November 16, 2012.
Since the split, Stewart has been photographed in public wearing items belonging to her former boyfriend. Last month, she donned his Baltimore Orioles baseball cap and his black backpack and on September 4, she appeared in photographs obtained by the UK's Daily Mail, wearing Pattinson's tee-shirt, with her middle finger in a brace. Stewart's publicist had no immediate response as to how her client injured her finger.
Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are scheduled to present a 90-second preview of the final "Twilight" film at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 6.
