Kristen Stewart isn’t going to let the opinions of others bring her down.
In an interview with the Daily Beast for Newsweek, Kristen, 22, sort-of apologized for upsetting her public, but not really; “It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated, but honestly I don’t care ’cause it doesn’t keep me from doing my sh**. And I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention.”
I actually don’t think she owes an apology to anyone that wasn’t involved in the drama that plagued her this year, so I’m behind this non-apology 100%.
The reporter interviewing Kristen refers to her as a “compelling mélange of pensiveness interrupted by sudden pangs of excitement,” which is definitely different from the sullen and awkward image we’re so used to associating with Kristen.
A few highlights from her interview include:
Promoting On The Road: “I was sick with the flu and couldn’t go to this On the Road screening. Normally, I wouldn’t feel too terrible about missing a press event, but I felt awful because I’d do anything for this film. It holds a special place for me.”
Being a young girl trying to break into the business: “I decided a year after not getting any commercials, ‘F–k it. I won’t make my mom drive around Los Angeles anymore,’ ” says Stewart. “I also got so nervous for every single audition. I was just dying. I had one appointment left and my mom said, ‘Have a little integrity and go to your last one.’ And it was The Safety of Objects. If I hadn’t gotten that, I would have been done.”
The way media scrutiny affects her life: “It’s a little annoying having to be so compartmentalized,” she says. “I go from box to box to box. Like right now, this is so crazy ’cause we’re out at a restaurant. But I’m going out a lot more now. I was starting to get closed off and self-conscious, and I’m trudging forth into the world more often.”
Talking about the movie that made her a star: “The only relief when it comes to Twilight is that the story is done,” she says matter-of-factly. “I start every project to finish the motherf–ker, and to extend that [mentality] over a five-year period adapting all of these treasured moments over four books, it was constantly worrying.” She pauses. “But as long as people’s perspective of me doesn’t keep me from doing what I want to do, it doesn’t matter.”
At the end of the day I believe that Kristen seems to be growing from her mistakes, and she shouldn’t have to pay for those mistakes for the rest of her life. I also believe that her attitude is exactly what she needs to stay strong and keep moving forward in her career and life. On another note, Kristen has reportedly made a donation that will go towards helping the victims of Hurricane Sandy, and, also reportedly, plans on donating towards the victims of Newton.
