Kristen Stewart lands the March cover of Marie Claire, and she looks really beautiful, doesn’t she? I’ve always thought if this acting thing didn’t work out for her, she could definitely be a model. I think I like her more when she’s NOT talking, actually.
Anyway, the interview is now out, and you can read it here. She opens up a bit more than she normally does about herself, and talks some about the mistakes she’s made. She talks about doing another “Snow White and the Huntsman” movie, and admits to writing poetry.
Here are some highlights.
How she picks the roles she plays: “Dude, I have no idea what I’m doing, and that’s kind of how I love it. I had no idea Twilight was going to be huge. Certain movies I’ve done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it’s fun not having so much control. It’s kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle – it’s fun, but it’s scary as f–k. If it’s not scary, it’s usually – you kind of have to step back and go, ‘You’re probably making this decision because it’s right on paper.’ But unless you get that irking fear, it’s not right.”
On her M.O: “I’m kind of, like, an extremist. I really don’t want to be working unless I’m bleeding it. And if I’m not working, then don’t ever try to make a plan with me.”
On being judged: “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made, so judge away.”
On Drugs: “I’m such a control freak. I’m glad I grew up in this era because I think if I grew up in my parents’ age of drugs and discovery and crazy sh-t, I don’t think I would do drugs well.”
The ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ sequel: While a Snow White & the Huntsman sequel is far-off, “it’s not where I thrive,” she says. “I really like being thrown into the unknown and then finding my way. I don’t want to show someone something. I want people to watch me find something.”
MORE AFTER THE JUMP!
She admits she’s awkward: “I have an embarrassing inability, seriously, of summoning fake energy…I’m just not very good on TV, and it’s not my main goal in life to get good at it. People are like, ‘She just can’t handle’ – for lack of a better word – ‘the spotlight’. No, actually, I can’t, and that is totally who I am. I love being an actor, but I’m the last person to want to have a birthday party. I don’t try to force it or turn it into something else or fabricate this personality…so I totally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awkward person. If you’re operating from a genuine place, then you can’t really regret anything.”
On her poetry: “I don’t want to sound so f–king utterly pretentious…but after I write something, I go, ‘Holy f–k, that’s crazy.’ It’s the same thing with acting: If I do a good scene, I’m always like, ‘Whoa, that’s really dope.’”
She regrets not going to college: “The biggest struggle I’ve ever had has been about not going to school and working instead. I was worried about turning down specific individual experiences. Like each movie was, ‘F–k, I have to do that movie.’ I just did a movie with Tim Blake Nelson [Anesthesia, which recently wrapped], and he is brilliant. If I were as smart as he is, I could have the most killer conversation with anyone because I know I have it in me. I just don’t have the tools necessarily as well-developed as he does. I play this character who is getting her master’s degree in philosophy at Columbia, and I think I’m smart, but I’m definitely not book smart in that way.”
