I’ll hand it to Kristen Stewart. I can’t imagine being 17-years-old when overnight the world knows everything about me because I was in a vampire movie and claws at me for as much information as possible.
Now, at 20, Stewart recognizes the criticism she faces from the press, who have labeled her ‘aloof’ and that people think she’s undeserving of her attention.
“I get that all the time: ‘She should not be in this position because she can’t handle it,’ and, ‘She is stuck up and doesn’t want to talk to anybody. She is miserable, and if you are so miserable stop doing it.’ But do you have a choice? I want to be an actor, I am just not very comfortable talking about myself,” she told the UK Telegraph.
She said that as she started to do films in school, the kids would just label her as a ‘bitch,’ even though most hadn’t even spoken to her.
‘I couldn’t relate to kids my own age,’ she says. ‘They are mean and don’t give you any chance. Once you have done with school, you realize that it is just a smaller version of life, and really I have felt that I should have been an adult since I was aged about five.I remember when I turned 18 everyone asked me if I felt more mature, but I felt the same as I always did. Juggling work and school, and helping my mother; I’ve always had a lot of responsibility.’
She also goes on to say that no matter how much anyone asks, she’s not going to talk about her relationship with Robert Pattinson, but was peeved that photos of them together leaked out. She says they aren’t on the top of the list for the paps, but I totally disagree.
More of the interview talks about her hobbies and the change to make other films outside of the Twilight saga series.
