Kristen Stewart is one of the Hollywood celebrities that media portrays as called. The actress is known for her ‘resting b**ch face’ and is not one who exposes her vulnerable side, until now.
Stewart graces the cover of Vanity Fair’s September Style Issue. In an interview with the magazine, she shares her experiences on the Charlie’s Angels reboot, as well as her rapid rise to fame for her starring role in the Twilight series.
Stewart explains why she has often appeared in independent films rather than blockbuster films after her Twilight fame. “It gave me a chance to not weigh something down,” the actress says. “It was so much bigger than me. My baggage was so minuscule in comparison to what [Reichardt’s and Assayas’s] storylines are, as filmmakers. I was finally given a chance to be looked at, not as this thing in this celebrity-obsessed culture that was like, ‘Oh, that’s the girl from Twilight.'”
As for being perceived as an “a**hole” in the industry, the actress admits, “I think I’ve grown out of this, but I used to be really frustrated that because I didn’t leap willingly into being at the center of a certain amount of attention, that it seemed like I was an a**hole.”
“I am in no way rebellious. I am in no way contrarian. I just want people to like me.”
And while her love life has been the center of interest multiple times in celebrity news outlets, Stewart says “I only date people who compliment me.”
