In the feature, the 22-year-old actress was pleasantly surprised when the magazine told her what they wouldn’t be asking her questions about: Robert Pattinson or Twilight. Instead, they let her take control of the interview. Check it:
On what Kristen wanted to talk about: “I don’t want to sell myself. People are so weird. They suddenly find themselves so interesting that they think they’re worth selling. Typically speaking, the most interesting thing to me about myself is, right now, the fact that On the Road is coming out. And I want to talk about On the Road.”
On getting into the business: “At first, the reason I started doing this was literally just because I wanted a job. My parents are crew – my mom’s a script supervisor; my dad’s an AD – and I always looked up to them, I really totally completely glorified the movies. And so at first, I really just wanted the responsibility. I wanted adults to talk to me. I wanted to be involved. I was bored.
