Kristen Stewart: 'I've Never Tried to Shape People's Perspectives of Me'

Kristen Stewart‘s t-shirt reads “It’s Awful, I Hate It,” as she walks through Narita Airport on Friday (August 29) in Japan.

The 24-year-old actress took the cover of Vanity Fair‘s September 2014 issue, here’s what she had to share.

On if she’s worked with actors she doesn’t vibe with: “Absolutely. I haven’t been totally screwed, but I’ve had to force things. I’ve had to be in front of people and be like, ‘Oh, thank God we only have a few scenes together.’ As you mentioned I’ve been really lucky and the good experiences have definitely outweighed the not as euphoric experiences. But, yes, I know the difference. When it’s good it’s f*cking like a drug… If I’m working with someone who I’m not vibing with, or who I have to fake anything with, then it’s sad for me and it’s bad acting.”

On people’s perspective of her: “I never really thought of anything in terms of designing a career. I never tried to shape people’s perspectives of me, which is something that a lot of people do. There are certain actors and artists who want to be a certain kind of actor or certain kind of artist, and I’m really not like that. I have very much fallen into every situation, every creative and not creative experience, that I have delved into, based on gut. Therefore true regret can never eat at me. In terms of what people consume about you and then subsequently how they shape their opinion of you, none of it is wrong. It’s all a varied assortment of whatever flavors they’ve picked up at the newsstand or in the theater or on the Internet. But that literally is something that is not designed by me and so it’s not something that bothers me. But I don’t want to add to this already pre-existing, enormous mound of salacious bullsh*t that isn’t real. That’s not me defending anything. That’s true.”

On being able to continue acting: “I attribute my early start to my ability to do this job. It requires being comfortable within an insane amount of attention. If I hadn’t started out when I was really little I don’t think I would have done this as a teenager or as a young adult. It’s not in my make-up to go stand in the middle of a room. But I really wanted to be an actor and I wanted to make movies. I wanted to emulate my parents.”

    I love this girl unconditionally. She went true ups and dawn, she had a really nasty periods, but she never quit, she’s a really strong person, I admire her personality, she says what and how she feels…she’s not afraid…and anyways some ppl will never appreciate her, even if she would try to change her act, the way that she is (and That Will Never Happen Anyway..Not Kristen), the haters will be haters! Kristen, in my opinion, is just perfect like that! She’s fantastic!

  • Imou

    Most successful Hollywood people are fake. They feel the need to protect themselves from this crazy society of the world!
