Kristen Stewart is an Interpol Fan

Kristen Stewart is an Interpol Fan

Kristen Stewart leans forward in this new shot from the July 2010 issue of Elle UK magazine.

The 20-year-old actress opened up to the mag about who she’s jamming to right now, having an amazing family and how she dealt with having Twilight explode. Check it:

On growing up: “My family are amazing. I had like, the perfect upbringing. It sucks for people like Lindsay [Lohan], but it’s not her fault that she’s so off the rails.”

On music: “I’m just getting into The Smiths actually. Vicar in a Tutu is my favourite song. I was singing along to it this morning in my room; I’m so emo! I’m listening to Camera Obscura. It’s really ‘chicky music.’ I listen to stuff over and over. My favourite band is Interpol, and I’m listening to Broken Bells a lot, too. They are the new band from the lead singer of The Shins. I’m always going somewhere, so I get the chance to listen to a lot of music.”

On Twilight: “With Twilight, we never thought it was going to be so huge; we never thought we’d do a second, a third. I’m quite nervous about the third one, actually. It’s so such a privilege to be able to play a role for so long. Also, it’s such a product now; it didn’t start out as a product. I read the first book and thought, ‘Wow, this is a pager turner.’ There was something in the script – the energy. It’s raw desire, that’s what that book is. Which is why it’s weird that little kids read it. I’m like, ‘What are you thinking about when you’re reading it?’ I thought that it was going to be a really simple, overly dramatic – which was what was attractive about it – rotten love story. When they cast me it wasn’t like ‘Omigod, I got this huge movie;’ it was like, ‘OK, I got this film.’ You have to rev up to it.”

    ‘What are you thinking about when you’re reading it?’

    It’s for the verve. The Saga is getting serious academic attention. Nancy Reagin’s Twilight and History, offers some profound insights into the intricacies of Stephenie Meyer’s extraordinary work. (As if reading the novels themselves wasn’t even enough.)

    And transported to the silver screen, Kristen, as Bella, rocks.

  • -just.bella.

    She is so amazing and true.
    The Elle photoshoot is absolutely beautiful!!
    Every last picture<3.

    I love that she’s not one of these look-at-my-boobies type of girls who use their sexuality and objectify themselves instead of using their talents. She’s so genuine. It’s rare to find that in an actress or singer in Hollyweird.

  • claire

    she looks super pretty in that picture

  • Very Jess

    I loved The Shins!!! Kristen is so beautiful and incredible smart, is dificult
    To have both characteristics and can almost control everything her job perfect.

  • tay~kasd

    yeah she’ll be the next to fall off the rails. her & lindsay should grap rob then go take a coulpe showers together.

  • Bree

    Well at least she finally read it. It only took three movies for to finally read the first one. Before anyone jumps in to say otherwise go back and look at interviews for Twilight and New Moon she hadn’t read the book.
    If you look at interviews on Eclipse she stated that Bella knows what she wants so she is lot less tormented and then she said how weird it was for Bella to kiss Jacob. Believe me she hasn’t read Eclipse if that’s what she thinks. Bella tells Jacob she loves him for god sakes and then has this huge crying fit. Edward was willing to call off everything so she could be with Jacob. We know she won’t pull that scene off any better than the woods scene when Edward leaves her and she doesn’t even cry.
    Everything about this girl is a lie if somebody would only start checking out the things she says. I think she’s a pathalogical liar. Kristen all this drama and lies to keep her young audience feeling sorry for her. The only problem with that is the adults see through her now and we want the Twi nightmare over and this girl gone!

    I love The Shins and wasn’t sure if I’d like Broken Bells but they’re pretty awesome, too. I guess that’s a plus for Kristin Stewart in my book. I’m a grammar snob though, so I’d just like to point out that she should have said “my family IS” not “my family ARE.” And the whole “we had no idea Twilight was going to be so huge” thing from the entire cast is getting sort of stale. I don’t even like Twilight that much, but seriously? We KNOW they thought it wasn’t going to be a big deal— they’ve only told us a thousand times! Sorry, I just really had to get that off my chest.

  • bbbbb

    Ummm you guys cant read
    where does it say she likes Interpol
    what a disgrace
    stay away from good things like interpol
    you annoying twilight losers.

  • K

    Ever heard the saying can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all? Learn it. It would be good for some people who have nothing better to do then say rude things.

  • carla(:

    “My favourite band is Interpol”

    Bree you have a huge problem.. honestly girl you do.

    Kristen is much beyond Twilight.

  • Sam

    I love kristen!!! She has awesome taste in music as well…

  • robsten lovin

    I love Kristen and love how genuine she is.

  • Very Jess

    Maybe Bree is right I think that Kristen takes things in the apparently fvorite book of her, East of Eden,

  • Very Jess

    I think she takes things of Cathy especially.. I learn a lot with that book of her and others. But i love her i don’t care.

  • Alex

    She’s such a bore. YAWN!

  • Parker


    you would said that because you didn’t see the scenes behind new moon, bella definitly cried when edward left her in the woods, chris cut it, and why kristen says “kissing jacob is weird”, because “jacob” is means taylor here, not the jacob who’s in twilight, it is her point, please get to know the truth before you leave comment. and btw, i think you should read this series of all books again, because you didn’t figure out the whole story, and every character’s position and the their thoughts, and, if kristen haven’t read eclipse, she can act this movie? i don’t think so!

  • Parker

    stunning as always! team kristen! to hater, if you don’t like her or anything about kristen stewart then don’t come in!
