Kristen Stewart knows she looks awkward in some red carpet photos — she just doesn’t “give a f**k.”
The Snow White and the Huntsman star covers the July issue of Vanity Fair, opening up about the public’s misguided perception of her, smoking pot and how she and Robert Pattinson got into trouble with Twilight studio bosses.
Pattinson was also interviewed for the article, giving his own personal and candid opinion of his longtime girlfriend and co-star.
On not taking perfect pictures, Stewart says, “I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I get some serious sh*t about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it.”
She explains, “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 sh*t in half my photos, and I don’t give a f**k.”
“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 sh*t eaters who want to turn truth into sh*t. Not that you can say that in Vanity Fair!”
Pattinson, for his part, observes, “People have decided how they are going to perceive her. No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling.”
He adds that it’s “funny” people think of her as awkward, because she’s actually “insanely confident.”
On how Twilight changed her life, Stewart divulges, “You can Google my name and one of the first things that comes up is images of me sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and my dog. It was [taken] the day the movie came out. I was no one. I was a kid. I had just turned 18.”
“In [the tabloids] the next day it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot, whereas I’m kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot. Big deal. But that changed my daily life instantly. I didn’t go out in my underwear anymore,” she admits.
Although Stewart makes sure to cover up before going out now, she refuses to let movie stardom change dictate how she acts in general.
The actress tells the mag that she and Pattinson both “got into a lot of trouble” with Twilight bosses because of their offscreen behavior.
She reveals, “We were getting notes from the studio. They wanted me to smile all the time. They wanted Rob to be not so brooding. We were like, ‘No! You need to brood your ass off!’”
