Kristen Stewart to Vanity Fair: 'I'm proud' of not looking perfect
Kristen Stewart got candid and uttered quite a few naughty words in a recent interview for Vanity Fairy's July 2012 issue, in which she dished about why she doesn't take perfect pictures and how she handles fame.
The 22-year-old actress is best known for her role as Bella in the "Twilight" vampire films and has also appeared in "In The Land of Women," "Adventureland" and most recently, "Snow White and The Huntsman" which sees her play the heroine alongside Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth.
Stewart commands a massive fan following and has often appeared on magazine covers, but is often criticized about her fashion choices and her general demeanor in public.
"I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph," Kristen Stewart told Vanity Fair. "I get some serious (expletive) about it. I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, 'What an actress! What a faker!'"
"That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like (expletive) in half my photos, and I don't give a (expletive)," she added. What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, 'She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.' I don't care about the voracious, starving (expletive) eaters who want to turn truth into (expletive)."
Stewart explained how the overwhelming fame can be overpowering at times.
"It's not the fans that are scary," she told Vanity Fair. "Each one of them is different. But large groups of people are scary - there's no individual there. It feels like it's just an enormous body of water, like a wave that's stronger than you. And it's loud like water, so it is all-encompassing. You'd have to be a sociopath not to be penetrated by the human energy that's, like, cumulatively being hurled at you from every direction."
Stewart appears glamorous and high-fashion in her upcoming spread for the issue but gushed that when she was younger, she was basically "a boy."
"Look at a picture of me before I was 15," Stewart continued. "I am a boy. I wore my brother's clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn't wearing Juicy jeans. I didn't even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it's not like I didn't care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me."
Robert Pattinson, who is described in the Vanity Fair article as Stewart's "paramour," or lover, "in the 'Twilight' films and in real life," explained to the magazine that people have a misconstrued image of the unique starlet.
"People have decided how they are going to perceive her," Pattinson said. "No matter how many times she smiles, they'll put in the one picture where she's not smiling."
In recent years, as the "Twilight" franchise has gained even more fans, Stewart has appeared more cheerful at press events. She has also become bolder in her fashion choices. Sherecently attended the Cannes Film Festival and donned three eye-catching looks. The starlet dazzled in red one day and rocked yellow pants on another at the popular festival, where she attended a photo call for her upcoming 2012 film "On The Road."
Stewart's new film, "On The Road," is expected to be released in the United States later this year. It is based on the beat novel by Jack Kerouac. Stewart, who has blonde hair in the movie, plays Marylou. The film features her in her first nude scenes.
"On The Road" also stars Kirsten Dunst, Tom Sturridge, Viggo Mortensen, Elisabeth Moss, Amy Adams, Steve Buscemi,Terrance Howard, Garett Hedlund and Sam Riley.
