Bella Swan might be the soft-spoken type, but Kristen Stewart has got more of an edge to her. The always colorful Twilight Saga star has brought a free-wheeling flare to films like Adventureland and The Runaways (in which she played rock icon Joan Jett), and is sure to revive this zest in the upcoming Jack Kerouac adaptation On the Road. Of course, her offbeat nature is not limited to film roles — if you have ever caught an interview with the 22-year-old actress, you’ll learn that she’s a bit of a character herself.
Stewart was interviewed for the July issue of Vanity Fair, in which the actress speaks freely about critics of her down-to-Earth appearance:
“I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I get some serious s*** about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like s*** in half my photos, and I don’t give a f***. What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’ I don’t care about the voracious, starving s*** eaters who want to turn truth into s***.”Tallying up five expletives in a single statement, Stewart proves that she can give even the most pop-eyed of sailors a run for his money. Of course, this is hardly the first time the Snow White and the Huntsman lead has let loose in an interview…
In a chat with GQ, Stewart professed (about her onscreen Breaking Dawn wedding): “I was nervous for the wedding scene. When I looked at the set, with the pews and the lights, and I could see everyone was there in all their outfits, I cried. God, that f***ing dress!” One of the milder ones.
During a sitdown with W, Stewart stated, “It’s not like I sit around watching my movies again and again, but I’ve never quite believed actors when they say they don’t watch themselves. I hear them going around the block to make excuses for why they don’t watch their work. It’s bulls**t. Sorry, guys — I know you watch your stuff.” It heats up a little.
And here’s the kicker: when Stewart spoke to Elle, she proclaimed animosity towards “The people that write shit on the Internet … the professionals that talk bullshit on TV. Bulls**t people.” No hard feelings!
