Kristen Stewart covers the October issue of Vogue UK, in an interview that was definitely done before Twigate. Since her affair with married director Rupert Sanders became public back in July, Kristen has kept a very low profile. Vogue UK is her first major magazine cover since the fallout.
The 22-year-old actress reveals that living in the public eye is not as easy as people would think. “I know 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. 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!”
She went on to say “It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”
The actress had to go blonde for her role in the new film ‘On the Road’, and she reveals she wasn’t comfortable at all going lighter. “I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!”
In the movie Kristen plays Marylou, a member of the beat generation. The actress admits that it’s a time period that she can relate to. “There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. 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.”
Kristen added: “People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.”
Interesting she talked about loyalty, no?
