Kristen Stewart’s Vogue cover preview: “It’s not my job” to talk about Sparkles


I didn’t know Kristen Stewart was the going to be the February cover girl for Vogue! That’s very interesting. Anyway, this is just a preview of her cover piece – Vogue hasn’t released the Mario Testino shots, but there are some interview excerpts floating around. As far as the cover shot – I think Kristen looks nice here. I like the lighter hair, but I don’t care for the blouse. Her expression is cracking me up a little – slightly snotty, slightly scared, mouth open but not in a sexy way. It’s oddly compelling. Here are some interview highlights:

Talking about going back to the Twilight Saga set after a long period off, Kristen said: “It was like going back to school…Twilight is a different beast.”

On starting out as a child actor: “I don’t think I would have ever have been able to be an actress had I not started at nine-years-old. I would have been the last person to stand up and say, ‘I’d like to star in the play.”

With the Twilight Saga being stupidly successful, Kristen admitted that she’s “bothered” that she can’t be “some girl” anymore. She said: “There’s no way to eloquently put this. I just can’t go to the mall. It bothers me that I can’t be outside very often. And also to not ever be ‘some girl’ again. Just being some chick at some place, that’s gone.”

And no interview could be complete if the subject about why she’s staying schtum about her relationship with Robert Pattinson didn’t arise. But Kristen being Kristen just said: “It’s not my job.”

On finding a good part: ”A compulsion absolutely fills you.”

On trusting her friends: ”You build a perimeter of people that are really important to you.”

If you remember, Kristen was supposed to have a Vogue cover last year, when she was promoting The Runaways and/or Eclipse. Something went down between Kristen and Anna Wintour, and Blake Lively ended up with a cover while Kristen was relegated to “The Steal of the Month” – one photo and a short write-up. So… it’s good that Kristen and Anna has buried the hatchet.

    Ugh if I had Vogue subscription I’d cancel it. This annoying twat always looks like she’s so pained.

  2. Laura says:

    I feel for her. Yeah, it would be sooooo nice to be famous and have a shit ton of money, but I really like being able to go to the park or go out shopping or go for a drive by myself without anyone hassling me. I can understand how much that would suck, especially if your someone who likes your space and isn’t naturally a famewhore. She should move to Europe in the country somewhere.

  3. Mari says:

    She looks like a different person. Thanks to photoshop I think she looks cute.

  4. inessa says:

    God, I hate this Vogue spread. And why is she on the cover in the February issue? Shouldn’t she be on the November issue when “Twilight part 4: We finally did it!” comes out? My guess: even Anna Wintour finds her irrelevant.

  5. searching4grace says:

    Kaiser I love that you held up your magazine and took a picture! and the red sweater! if this is the best of the pictures they took of her….. i think its awful. like an `i’m about to be chopped up` look in a horror movie. she’s uninteresting and probably has bugs fly in her mouth.

  6. Red says:

    This hypocritical Hollywood brat got this thanks to the Twilight studio that bought this issue for her.

    She is everything I can’t stand.

  7. Ari says:

    She acts like she is living in the time of starving actors or something. Anyone can youtube something and become a star overnight. Her talent is mediocre at best and she is making hand over fist cash – she needs to lighten the f*ck up already. She is banging a pretty good looking Brit for crying out loud! HAVE FUN BROAD

  8. tina says:

    She has nothing to promote but herself.The entire article is a joke.
    They kiss her butt so much and praise her as if she’s Maryl Streep yet she has no projects. She’s desperate to come to the award shows but no one wants her.

  9. Kaiser says:

    searching – I didn’t do these photos! They come from her fansite and fashion blogs, because Vogue hasn’t released anything yet.

  10. Eva says:

    Ari: She is banging someone but it’s definitely not male.

  11. Rachel says:

    Ugh, I have a subscription to Vogue but I may have to cancel. Angelina Jolie and Kristen Stewart??? No thanks Anna!

  12. mln76 says:

    I actually like her. She is a little moody but she is smart she isn’t vacant and smiley like most of those idiotic teenbots.

  13. Jacq says:

    She’s one of those girls who looks awkward in a dress and heels. Her hair done and make-up look only serve to highlight that fact.

  14. darby says:

    Wow- whats up with all the kristen hate? Vogue US covers are most of the time crap. A cover for october or november would make more senese to me (release time for the twilight movie). But she loos ok.

  15. Macheath says:

    Ugh I can’t stand this creature.

    Twilight was huge before the movies were made, she knew this yet still chose to appear in the films. WTF is she complaining about exposure and anonymity now?

    @ Ari
    I totally agree! Her “acting” is one dimensional and overrated.

  16. seltashNoRA says:

    You’re right, if only all celebrities were so sullen ungreatful and untalented as she is, all the while finding time to grace us with her art of stuttering, complaining, whining and assulting with inappropriate comments.

    She’s “special”.

  17. Squirrel says:

    Even if going on about her lovelife is not officially her job, wouldn’t having some kind of relationship with the camera at least be her job, bein’ an actress an’ all? Have rarely seen someone less photogenic and more pissed off looking on a regular basis. Have not seen any of the films – can she suddenly turn on the lights and do any decent acting?

  18. Whatever says:

    I agree that it sucks and is intrusive, but if she really hates it, as she says in every interview, she should quit. She’ll have enough money to live on like a normal person for the rest of her life. In a few years, everyone will forget and she can go to the mall every day.

  19. lez says:

    The funniest quote of this delusional person:

    “I choose things that are so overly ambitious, and if I can’t do steff like that, I don’t want to be doing this.”(Twilight, stripper in WTTR, slutty girl in On the Road)

    Yep, those are incredibly difficult and ambitious roles that no one in HW dares to approach.

  20. searching4grace says:

    the thought of it cracked me up anyway! I like her when they have her doing high fashion photo’s but when they’re trying to make her accessible it doesn’t work. i’m still waiting for someone to put her on a magazine cover with her biting her lip!

  21. anti says:

    she’s always a mouth breather in photos…

  22. Ari says:

    @Eva LOOOOL I totally believe that too but in all fairness if she was lezzing it up she seems the type to not care and would be out(maybe?) she would probably have way more fangirls then than Rob! >_<

  23. Tammy says:

    Oh please, a young, beautiful, famous, multi-millionaire crying about having a tough life…cry me a river

  24. Blaster says:

    Too bad her poses in this magazine look just like the “Steal of the Month” pose she did last year. Hands awkwardly folded over her front.

  25. malachais says:

    @Lez, EXACTLY!! Can she close her mouth in ANY photos? Jeez.

  26. SHump says:

    I’d take a 1000 of her before a single Blake Lively. I just don’t see what all the hate is about. Plus, she was really good as Joan Jett.

  27. Eva says:

    Ari: She is having these problems because she is forced to stay in the closet. Do you seriously think the studio that produces those Twilight films would allow her to come out? They all had to sign a morality clause.

    Twilight fans are mostly, unfortunately, homophobic. If you don’t believe me visit some of the fansites and see how they react when this topic is brought up.

    Her “frienship” with Nikki Reed was raising red flags back then in 2008/2009. They were kissing and making out during a Vanity Fair photo shoot of the Twilight cast. She completely ignored the others and was all over Nikki.

    They were inseparable during the filming of New Moon, so much that her supposed boyfriend looked like a third wheel. There are photos of them 3 going out. Kristen and Nikki are holding hands and the boyfriend is tagging behind.
    This was the reason behind the emergency meeting of her PR people and the studio executives who came to Vancouver because the lesbian talk was out of control and she had and still has a major image problem.

    So the best way to cover that up was to bring her in the public with Pattinson. Suddenly she is straight, everyone has forgotten how she and Nikki behaved, no one pays attention that she smokes a bong in the public, calls her fans retards as long as the real life Edward and Bella are together.
    And teasing the people with the “are they/aren’t they” game was brilliant.

    Cheapest marketing, that keeps them and the Twilight films in the media thanks to an obsessive fanbase.

  28. becky says:

    uhm NO Anna W just sucked it up because Summit wanted her for twilight promotion? whats up w u guys running old stories? and KSTEW is awesome u haters
    and how bout canceling your vogue after the 3rd blake Lively cover

  29. halie says:

    Blake is a harmless bimbo that doesn’t consider herself the best thing that has come out of Hollywood in a decade.
    But that’s what this overrated Twilight twat actually thinks.
    Her ego is proportional to her whining rate.

    She is so far up her ass it’s not even funny. What’s worse is that any other actress) would be bashed 100x worse if they had let out half of the idiotic statements she has.

  30. Blaster says:


    I literally LOLed reading your post.

  31. kiko says:

    on the cover she looks like a scared rabbit..what the hell is wrong with vogue?

  32. judyjudy says:

    I like her and I don’t know why. I’m not a Twilight fan and I don’t think I have seen her in anything else but I like her, whining and all.

  33. jover says:

    Enough with actresses and random celebs Vogue is fashion Kristen Stewart is not – put models on the cover ANne remember you do have a legacy to uphold – not serve as an arm of People and Us magazines.

  34. Nanz says:

    She chooses things that are overly ambitious? She does? Really. Kristen, I saw Adventureland, so don’t sell me that crap.

  35. December says:

    I cannot stand this whiny little girl and her whole “woe is me” mantra.

    If you don’t like the attention…get out of Hollywood. No one is forcing you, and the only time you really get into the tabloids is because of the Twilight movies.

    I’m sure when they’re done with the Twilight movies, you’ll fade back in obscurity, and start bitching that no one is paying attention to you.

  36. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Go suck a phlebotomist.

  37. TeeTee says:

    I hugely dislike her acting, to say the least..


  38. albeli says:

    WTF–they chose that for the cover? She looks like a crazy stalker fan is asking for her autograph, and she’s afraid to move.

  39. Ari says:

    @Eva The odd thing is as I am part of the yaoi community which is in some part is made up of tons of twilight fanatics [female] but most are for Jacob and Edward (if ya know what I mean) but there are testaments to the fact that a lot of fangirls who like MxM action are probably into girls themselves so that is where my interpretation stems from although yours does make more sense in the Hollywood scheme of things. I can see the position of “morality” and trying to keep it hush, hush considering the background of Meyer’s religious upbringing was quite naive and closeted as well to say the least.

  40. Emmy says:

    I like her, she’s one of the best young actresses in hollywood right now. I find her moody intensity interesting.

    And as for the desire to covet her private life…how can that be bad when there are so many famewhores spilling their lives and their bits for all to see.

  41. Jamie says:

    Make sure you have facts and not just random gossip before posting “information”. There wasn’t a “falling out” between Anna Wintour and Kristen Stewart. Kristen’s people had already made the deal with Elle magazine and since Elle is a big rival magazine of Vogue, they didn’t want her on competing covers when it was likely she would’ve given the same interview for both since it was Eclipse she was “promoting”.

  42. MuñekitA says:

    I really hate this stupid “teen starts” when they start saying that they’re just so tired of being famous and being recognized… Isn’t that what every actor want? To succeed in a “great” movie/project/etc.
    I guess she’s tired of that cause she doesnt do anything with her fame,she doesnt use if for sth productive, she is just not smart enough to handle it.
    I bet that if she were just a “normal girl” she’d do anything to get some attention… like many of those insipid gils in bussines -Lively- Meester-bilson-etc!!

    So… relax Kris and enjoy… once this twilight movies end… I hope you can be “just one chick at some place” …

  43. C-DUB says:

    I just don’t like her. She always has a stupid look on her face.

  44. hairball says:

    I don’t care about her personal life. I have no idea if she is gay or is with RPatz for not good reasons. If she is -how SAD for everyone involved.

    BUT, my god, she is just a TERRIBLE actress. I mean, TERRIBLE. She acts EXACTLY the same way in every movie.

    I do not understand at all how she can possibly think she is a good actress. ??? She is monotone, has zero range. I seriously cannot even fathom how any director would want her to be in his/her movie.

    HOW is she getting parts??

  45. marili says:

    The poor girl can’t act. She has no range; she has basically played the same character (moody brat) since Panic Room. Her repertoire only includes staring vacantly, twitching, and biting her lip. She only has a couple of years left before she is too old to play those roles. I’m sorry but she is not an actress. Didn’t Slade talked about Kristen crying because she couldn’t feel the character or something like that and Joan Jett making her cry? I’ve noticed from what she has said about her acting and what others have said about her that she can only play herself and not truly become another character. In the Twilight movies she only looks good in comparison to Sparkles and Taylor who are even worse actors and her twitchy, lip biting performance seems subtle compared ti Sir-just-stands-there-staring broodily, well, until he has a dramatic scene and he ACTS and Sir-just-stands-there. Even with that said, I find her oddly compelling on screen (I don’t know why I like watching her and she is the reason I’ve watched those dumb movies) while I just feel sorry for Sparkles’ earnestness when he is just overacting. So, I think she is harmless.

  46. Liana says:

    Do you seriously think the studio that produces those Twilight films would allow her to come out? They all had to sign a morality clause.

    A morality clause cannot prohibit someone from “coming out.” It is illegal to have anything in a morality clause that states anything about sexual orientation or the right to express one’s sexual orientation. It is considered discrimination. This has been the law since 2003.

  47. Crash2GO2 says:

    I like her acting (have only seen her in one Twilight movie, but in several other movies) and I think she is lovely. For once with an actress, the mouth open thing seems a natural way for her to carry herself, and not something contrived like it is with Jennifer Lopez.

  48. truth fairy says:

    With all due respect are you so naive to think just one of these teens or tweens would have been casted in the first place if they knew they were gay? They were unknown, they are not really talented, they are in every way replaceable.
    And don´t tell me they didn´t check this out before. Of course they did and they will time and time again. Why buy difficulties when replaceable girls and guys are available at the drop of a hat.
    Dogs fight over the bone. Same old, same old.

  49. lucy2 says:

    I’ve seen her in other stuff and she wasn’t bad. But I’m really tired of her whining about how hard her life is – she CHOSE to participate, life didn’t dump this on her.

  50. icantbelievethis says:

    I’ve only seen her in the Twilight movies and Panic Room. I can’t take her in the Twilight movies. It seems like everyone else has improved each movie except her. I love Nikki Green (Alice) in the movies. I actually wish they’d show more dialogue from the other actors and less from KS.

  51. almond says:

    yeah… it’s tough having you future secured.

  52. almond says:

    Her personal life is just that: personal. I don’t care what she has for lunch, who she’s bonning or where she spends holidays.

    Her profession, on the other hand, is fair game and in that she is, at best, mediocre. You never hear all these people she’s worked with say she is “chameleonic” or that she becomes a completely different person. They can’t.

    Instead they say that she is raw and intense and dedicated,which I believe. She seems so passionate about acting, but that’s not enough. Considering how seriously she takes herself and her craft, I’d expect her to work harder. Maybe this is all she can do.

    And I wouldn’t worry about this fame thing lasting forever. As soon as this Twilight thing ends so will the craze. After all, all these obsessed fans didn’t exactly flock to see her indie releases, some of which were actually quite good, despite the… obvious.

    Oh, and I will say this: she is oddly compelling on screen. Not always, but enough to make me wanna check out her more serious movies.
    There, long opinionated post over.

  53. jaye E says:

    I think her face is lovely. Her acting is painful to watch most times, but there IS something compelling about her awkwardness.

    She was in the movie Zathura and that twitchiness she has wasn’t as pronounced, but there was still that awkwardness.

    People who are saying “oh poor little rich girl”…I get it. But I have to cut her some slack because I can jump in my car and go wherever I want without being followed or photographed, which I can imagine gets very intrusive after a while. Not everyone who chooses acting as a profession is after the trappings of fame. Some just love the craft.

  54. gabs says:

    Why do you all hate her?

    I like her, she seems to keep it real and not fake and contrived like these other celeb bimbos.

  55. hairball says:

    @gabs: I agree with you about how she handles herself off-screen. But again, that’s her personal life. I actually respect her for not becoming a famewhore and plastic shallow Hollywood type.

    But when you talk about her professionally, her acting, it’s just god-awful. She is so restrained and wooden. It’s really distracting having to watch her on-screen. I never get lost in her character. I’m just annoyed by her woodeness.

  56. CallieTrichid says:

    Kristen Stewart = the female Keanu Reeves.

  57. L! says:

    She has a perpetual “I smelled something bad!” look on her face and it is unattractive. If she were to smile more, and not look so bitchy and angry, I would find her much less annoying.

  58. LittleDeadGirl says:

    CallieTrichid: Hey I like Keanu Reeves. He has more range than KStew … come on give the boy atleast that -lol- Bill and Ted’s Excelent Adventure? How can you not love the boy for that.

    Ha. I know what you mean but Keanu comes off as lovable, even if not that bright, while she comes off as the type of girl that thinks she’s alot smarter and deeper than everyone else in the room and she doesn’t know you’re supposed to grow out of that phase after 16.

    Maybe she is in the closet. I wouldn’t honestly surprise me … I think she should come out once the Twilight comes ends. It could only help her career … make her more interesting.

  59. Madison says:

    I don’t get all the hate for Kristen. I don’t think she’s whining so much as stating what she misses about her life before the twilight fame. Nearly everyone has things about their job they love and hate and she’s no different. Seems to me she loves acting, the opportunities twilight fame has given her and appreciates the financial security that comes with that but she also misses the anonymity she had when she was just another unknown actress.

  60. Cleo says:

    Jodie Foster played her mother in Panic Room, so Dicey Tilllerman with pretty long hair must be some kind of actress to be able to keep her bile down for an entire franchise acting like the neurotic willing victim of VAMPIRES.

  61. jemshoes says:

    Whatever her intentions, KS’ soundbites always come out sounding awkward, defensive, ungrateful and entitled. Her job is not only to act, it’s also to sell the films she’s acting in – that’s the contract in Hollywood. Otherwise, stay working in theatre?

    It will be interesting to see the kinds of films she’ll choose to do after the Twilight franchise is finally finished (2012 can’t come fast enough!!!). I’m still hoping she’ll grow up graciously – and we should give her a chance. At her age, I thought I knew everything and that every thing I knew would never change. Very immature. So she has a bit of wiggle-room with me. :)

  62. cruiz2 says:

    Vogue needs to go back to more mature types.

  63. Cakes says:

    Shes always mouth breathing. It wont kill her to smile every now and then.

  64. Apostate says:

    She might actually sustain a facial injury if she attempted to smile broadly,hence the constant sullen expression….

  65. truthzbetta says:

    She’s boring without Pattinson. They’re trying to make her look like a vampire so we’ll think beyond her dullness.

    Reminds me of pics of Charles and Diana and then just Charles. Ugh. Mags realized Diana alone was more what public was looking for.

  66. Teri says:

    Whats wrong with her nose bad pic

  67. hairball says:

    I just read the link for Christina Hendricks and laughed my *** off!

  68. JenJen says:

    She has nooooo personality and is a bit snooty.

  69. GirlyGirl says:

    Anna Wintours days are numbered

  70. Partygirl says:

    She is such a bad actress!!!

  71. CB Rawks says:

    “And also to not ever be ’some girl’ again. Just being some chick at some place, that’s gone.”

    Um, no. You ARE simply some random girl. It’s just taking everyone a freakishly long time to notice.

  72. Ted C. says:

    She has an incredible high opinion of herself. She truly believes in the manifactured hype of her PR.

  73. argirl says:

    That nostril is disproportionately large.

  74. crtb says:

    What an awful cover. Why is it that other actors who are equally famous can go out and not be mobbed? But she has nother to worry about: Twoyears anfter the Twilight movies are over, no one will remember her name.

  75. Camille says:

    She’s gorgeous and I kind of adore her. She’s not trying to be someone that she isn’t, which I like. But I can understand somewhat why many don’t like her.

    That cover shot is bad though, she looks scared, weird.

  76. Claris says:

    I kinda like her. Not sure if she is the best actress as I feel she does seem the same in a lot of stuff and know she knew what she was getting into with the Twilight series, but what actress could turn that opportunity down. It would be a crazy life!
