Kristen Stewart in Vogue: “It bothers me that I can’t be outside very often”


Last week we had a preview of Kristen Stewart’s Vogue pictorial, as well as some snotty-sounding interview excerpts. Well, Vogue has finally released their full interview (online here), and it’s kind of bad. Like, K-Stew comes across… uh… well, she doesn’t seem quite like the “snotty little bitch” personae that she often inhabits in interviews. She seems to try to make an effort here, but the problem is… she doesn’t really have that much to say. She bitches a little bit about fame, but she’s learned how to stop complaining about that for the most part (either that, or this is heavily edited).

Now, the whole piece is definitely worth a read, if only for the various descriptions of what she’s like during the interview. Like, “Stewart, a sylph in tomboyish jeans and a lumberjack shirt, is moving around the kitchen of a friend’s house, cracking her knuckles as she talks. She gets nervous dealing with the media—TV interviews in particular, she says, make her squirm—and she is sometimes accused of being downbeat and defensive in her public appearances, not least because she rarely smiles. She nurses some bad-girl tics, smoking and littering her conversation with expletives, and maintains an insouciance in the face of her big career.” Wow. It’s just the third paragraph and I want to smack her a little bit.

On her career choices: “I choose things that are so overly ambitious, and if I can’t do stuff like that, I don’t want to be doing this,” she says. Scratch the surface, however, and the attitude seems more about the passion and perfectionism she feels about her work than the opposite. “A compulsion absolutely fills you,” she says of finding a good part, and admits that she sometimes has difficulty letting go.

On The Road versus Breaking Dawn: Today she is stoked from having just returned from shooting On the Road with Walter Salles, the masterly Brazilian director of The Motorcycle Diaries and Central Station. She plays a character based on Neal Cassady’s first wife, LuAnne Henderson, opposite Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley. It was an intense improvisatory experience that left her “crying my head off,” she says. “I didn’t want to leave.” Installing herself in Baton Rouge for the foreseeable future was “like going back to school. . . . Twilight is a different beast.”

On Bella Swan: “A character who is embedded in so many people’s psyches at this point. It’s starting to enter my head a lot more than it used to because it’s at the end and it’s come such a long way. I just want the fans of the book to be happy.” She laughs. “I don’t necessarily care about anyone else.”

She likes Jenny Lewis, the L.A. musician: “She’s the only person I’ve ever met that I can’t function around.”

Fave movies: Her favorite movies are John Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence, starring Gena Rowlands, and La Vie en Rose, with Marion Cotillard. She loves Jane Fonda in Klute.

Hobbies: Her new hobby is cooking, no doubt encouraged by the fact that she lives in a somewhat isolated way: “You build a perimeter of people that are really important to you.” Friends tease her for watching the Food Network with a stern frown of concentration on her face. “I’m such a dork.” (The frown pays off. For lunch, she prepares an elaborate, and delicious, Mexican tortilla soup with numerous condiments, along with pulled-pork sandwiches.) She also likes golf, a sport that has the advantage of involving private membership and small numbers of people over large areas.

Not going to the mall: “There’s no way to eloquently put this,” she says. “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 just ‘some girl’ again. Just being some chick at some place, that’s gone.”

More on Bella: “Masses of girls identified with Bella in a really profound way, for want of a better word,” she says. “The connection that I’ve seen people have . . . I’ve seen it physically. It’s the characters they’re flipping for.”

On money: She also feels the power for good that comes with her influence. “It’s funny when you are endowed not only with public recognition on a f-cking seriously vast level, but also money,” she says with endearing earnestness. “Like, funds.” (She was reportedly paid $25 million for the two films of Breaking Dawn, plus a percentage of the gross.) “Anytime I hear that somebody’s really rich, the first question is ‘Do you do anything with it? Or do you, like, chill? You just sit on it?’” She is thinking carefully, strategically, about how best to put her own contribution to use, and has a plan—inspired by her researches for the role of a runaway in the sex trade—to set up a network of halfway houses to help those who want to recover and get back on their feet. “That would be amazing,” she says. “Right now it’s the thing I feel most connected to.”

My favorite part is where she’s talking about money. I will admit, I would love to talk to Kristen about money. I bet that conversation would be really good. And I think the undertone of the money stuff is Kristen being a smart girl and thinking “Yeah, this might not last, prepare for the worst and save for a rainy day.” Because there will come a day when Kristen can walk around in a mall, you know? Because all of this Twilight stuff will be over and everyone will have moved on the next thing and we won’t have to read any more twitchy, uncomfortable interviews from Kristen.

    Some of her prettiest pics if you ask me!

  2. Smile a little says:

    She looks like she’s always smelling cat piss!
    Not to mention she seems rather ungrateful, what a snotty little B**ch

  3. hairball says:

    She might find this hard to believe, but there actually are some people in the U.S. and world who would have no idea who she is or care.

    Whether she succeeds after Twilight or not, I hope she is investing her money wisely and has a financial planner.

    Good for her if she does try to do some good with her money. I think her acting is pure crap, but that is admirable.

  4. Happymom says:

    She always seems so uncomfortable in her own skin and her acting is horrible. It’s kind of amazing she’s become as famous as she is.

  5. Blaster says:

    For the love of God, can she pose ONCE without her hands in front of her awkwardly???

    I swear, I can’t wait till Twilight is over. We’ll finally see if these kids will have careers after. Because we all know “Remember Me” and “Welcome to the Rileys” were not exactly box office draws, even with Pattinson’s beautiful face featured heavily in the Remember Me Trailer…

    Kristen Stewart is not popular because of anything she has done personally, but because she is part of a franchise that, literally, would have accepted ANYONE cast as Bella Swan.

  6. normades says:

    “She likes Jenny Lewis, the L.A. musician: “She’s the only person I’ve ever met that I can’t function around.”

    ?????????? function around????

    That’s Jake’s ex that he brought to the GG, no? Quite the “it girl” eh?

  7. JenJen says:

    Except for when she is sitting on city stoop toking?

  8. JenAllie says:

    She identifies with rich people who sit around and chill. No explanation with which part she identifies, the money/doing nothing with it/sitting around and spending it on pot and other drugs?

    Why doesn’t she start a charity with all the money or does anything apart from whining?

  9. pippy says:

    She can’t close her mouth or ever look as if she doesn’t hate her life.

  10. brin says:

    Why did she take on that role (Bella) if she didn’t want to be recognized? She’s not only ungrateful, she’s stupid.

  11. Jem says:

    @normades Jenny Lewis is basically a hipster/indie music goddess. She’s the front woman of the band Rilo Kiley and her solo act. She’s really talented, but kind of known as a bit weird. Still most hipsters are in love with her haha

  12. lolwut says:

    Kind of funny she says she cant even go to the mall but I wouldnt know her if I fell on her.
    LOL@ some celebs egos.

  13. Delaney Deheart says:

    “I choose things that are so overly ambitious, and if I can’t do stuff like that, I don’t want to be doing this,”


    When Twilight and playing promiscuous characters are your most ambitious choices, then you are on the right path of your career.LMAO

  14. Riley says:


    Jenny Lewis is lead singer of Rilo Kiley as well as a solo artist. She also has done some really fantastic collaborations. If you like Americana (Altcountry music), Jenny Lewis is really one of the best females in the business. She is up there with Neko Case, Patty Griffin, and Dolly Parton. She was also a child actress and seems to have made the transition from child actress to singer/songwriter very well. I love her and was a little disappointed to read that she dated Jake but I can kind of see it. He just seems a little to white bread for her.

    Anyway, about Kristin— the pictures are beautiful but man she is a boring person. Didn’t she receive best dressed female by some group? I though that was so odd because all she wears are jeans and hoodies. And I agree, Kaiser, one day she will be able to return safely to the mall. Just ask Meg Ryan.

  15. Jackson says:

    Oh please. Granted, she may have to go to greater lengths to just ‘go to the mall’ or ‘go outside’ and not be noticed, but come on. Hop over or up a state from California, or from wherever you’re filming, pull your hair back and put on a pair of shades. No one will give you a second look. Or hop into a mall in middle America somewhere and no one will even notice you. Ugh. She still sounds terribly full of herself. And please, she can’t go outside?? “Outside” is a really, really big place. So annoying.

  16. LittleFATMe says:

    I would also like to say that, while not a huge fan and also not a hater, it is true there are people who might not know her, but chances are – right now, at least – that everywhere she went there would be one teenager somewhere who would know her, snap a cell pic, text friends and then twitter it and have her swarmed in a matter of moments. She is not some girl right now, she is BELLA of the light and sparkles and she will have to deal with that until the next fad comes…
    Now outside, that might be a stretch – I mean Sandra Bullock hid a baby, I am sure she could manage a bit of outdoor time. Maybe not with her boyfriend, because he sparkles in sunlight, but you know she has Jake for outside during the day… lol

  17. Natalie says:

    she does not have pretty legs, they always look awkward and hers knees stand out

  18. Arianna says:

    @ Blaster
    now i cant stop noticing her awkward hands… everywhere… damn haahah

    her interview is pretty low maintenance compared to how she usually sounds at least.
    i always remember her from panic room haha

  19. aa says:

    She has always the same face expression no matter what. And yes she is an actress. How is it possible? I guess in the same way how Britney is a “singer”. People who buy their crap are just idiots.

  20. Squirtle says:

    Um..I LOVVVVVVVE Jenny Lewis /Rilo Kiley, she’s amazing and very talented and a musical genius…not to overstate it :)

    The fact that K-Stew likes her makes me respect her a teeny weenie little bit more, but then she ruins it by saying something stupid like, “She’s the only person I’ve ever met that I can’t function around.” I don’t know what that is supposed to mean, is she even MORE AWKWARD around Jenny Lewis? Is that even POSSIBLE? Is she claiming that she’s typically the picture of cool and collectedness until Jenny Lewis enters the room and she starts fumbling and stuttering over herself…Cause if that’s the case Jenny must be stalking her, she acts like that all the damn time!

  21. guesty says:

    Not loving this hair color on her…like it darker…suits her betah.

  22. Lukie says:

    Pretty girl.
    Not particularly photogenic, is she?

  23. seltashNoRA says:

    Her legs resemble that of a giraffe.

  24. latam2012 says:

    i dont have a problem with her, so shes closed off, fair enough many celebrities are. has she ever been rude?

  25. poppy says:

    cry me a river. move somewhere else where 12 year old girls won’t stalk her. pretty much the rest of the world is wide open for you darling. i bet nobody would give two shits about her if she lived in nyc.
    she should try living in reality. not many people care past making snarky comments on blogs about celebrities.
    and not being able to go to a mall? are we supposed to feel sorry for her or be jealous?
    i guess she’s just young and stupid.

  26. Whatever says:

    Because there will come a day when Kristen can walk around in a mall, you know? Because all of this Twilight stuff will be over and everyone will have moved on the next thing and we won’t have to read any more twitchy, uncomfortable interviews from Kristen.


    I agree and look forward to that day. She rarely smiles? Miserable, ungrateful little bitch. She has the career (for now), money and a hot boyfriend, but all she does is complain. Go away then, Kristen!

  27. flourpot says:

    She has the most… generic legs I’ve ever seen. Extremely boring. I feel soo sorry for the poor millionaire who can’t go outside. Cry me a river, indeed.

  28. Girafe99 says:

    She looks very pretty but seems on the verge of tears

  29. judyjudy says:

    Twilight fans are NUTS, have you seen the crazies with full body tattoos? A mall in the middle of America is probably the most dangerous place she could go. Crazies would mob her or shank her because they are in love with Edward and think she really is Bella. I have to agree that that type of attention would really suck.

  30. Ladybird83 says:

    Ok, so I think she is a truly terrible actress, bless her heart. The whole teenage angst thing is old and overplayed girl. They got you dressing like a woman now, so can someone train this idiot to talk/act like one? You act like I did when I was 14, like a girl without any girlfriends to teach her the ropes. You’re in Hollywood honey, you could have it all. Better tighten up your act.

  31. gooniegirl says:

    I like her! So what if she complains about the job she chose…don’t we all?

    I don’t like that I sit in front of a computer all day in a gray office…but I chose it…and guess what…sometimes I complain about it! And I’m not even passionate about my job, at least she has that.

    Just like everyone here, I enjoy celebrities and gossip blogs…but I’ll never understand why all of you feel the need to tear people apart just because they don’t fit your version of perfect. Can’t you all just be nice for a change??????

  32. maggieXXX says:

    She has the maturity of a 12 year old, it’s ME ME ME. No idea of anyone outside of your own little too important world.
    She thinks her “problems” are so difficult and no one can relate to it.

    True. We can’t relate to an overprivileged Millionare Hollywood actress( even though it’s an insult to call her an actress to all the other real actresses).

    I wish I had her problems.

  33. vickie says:

    wow. that was painful to read. she should be encouraged to never ever speak in public again.

  34. NJMDPS says:

    A young Meg Ryan….especially last pic.

  35. emmy says:

    you know what pisses me off? When I hear Robert P complain numerous times how hard “filming” BD is while at the gg. Dude, you are being paid millions of dollars, shut up. Let me know when Kristen bitches about her work

  36. Aries_Mira says:

    I saw the first Twilight movie – yuck. Not a fan whatsoever. I find Kristen to be a very blah actress and she seems downright bored and plastic (no movement, no facial expression, nothing) in the pictures.

  37. kazoo says:

    i can’t wait until this chick is irrelevant.

  38. kelly says:

    Happymom- Thank you! I feel the same.

    I seriously doubt her career will extend far beyond the impetus of this stupid franchise, and she sounds like a spoiled brat with zero insight into an industry she’s probably been in most of her life. Get over yourself love.

    I also agree that the twitards are totally revolting in their assaultive, entitled, psychopathic myopia. I could shrug my shoulders at it if I thought it was solely 14 years olds conducting hate campaigns and lunging at strangers- (what’s more monstrous than a teenager armed with anonymity and a grotesquely distorted worldview?) these days, they’re trained to do that shit from birth, but christ, it’s women my own age half the fucking time. That’s some serious disfunction and more pathetic than I have words for.

    It’s the rabid-frothing hate-speak directed at unbelievers and the sense of absolute entitlement to the cult objects themselves that really makes my skin crawl- there’s something new about that. In my day if someone critiqued your fantasy heartthrob, you just thought they had bad taste and felt sorry for them! You didn’t threaten violence or shut down their activities or spew hate at them 100000 times over.

    So on one small level I feel sorry for this piece; she probably didn’t know what she was getting into with the ahem fans. I don’t think anyone did.

  39. LBeees says:

    Wowowow, so much disgust.

    I like her. Maybe I empathize with her. She doesn’t bother me. Then again, Twilight irks me and it seems that it irks her in the same way, like, she didn’t realize what awful crap it was when she took the first gig and now she’s stuck doing eleventy million movies for it. I’m sure she’ll be happy as all getup when the twi-shizz is over.

  40. bitchPlease says:

    emmy: He complains because he hates working on it while she has nothing in her future but those god awful films.
    She called her fans retards and many other insulting things.

  41. almond says:

    I can’t feel for her when she’s being payed millions to be a one-trick actress in a fad-franchise. Like someone said before, I wish I had her problems.

    @LBeees You bet, disgust. Who can pity this poor mediocre actress who’s winning $ 25 millions?

    And while money isn’t everything, by far, it would solve a good part of most people’s problems. It’s kind of difficult to relate to someone who does what she loves, is being paid outrageously for it and then has to do some promotion (which she does not like) when most of us can’t say we are as fortunate in our jobs. So yeah, no sympathy. I’m not joining her pity-party.

  42. Mia Girl says:

    Love her or hate her, I would get used to Kristen Stewart because industry directors/insiders love her. I mean Walter Salles could have casted anybody in On The Road, and he chose her, despite the Twilight stuff. She’ll be around for the next few years. After that, who knows.
    And I actually understand her “mall” comment – she’s coming from the perspective not of “regular fame” but “twilight fame” – some of those diehard fans are craaaazzzzzy – she actually has death threats against her for being Sparkles girlfriend. I would be freaked out too..

  43. Oh pity me says:

    Mia Girl: it’s her insane fanatic fans who send death threats at anyone who doesn’t worship on her altar. They threatened Pattinson when he said they are only friends.
    Those middle aged women are using her as projection for their Twilight fantasies, they don’t care about her outside of the franchise.

    She has no projects in the future and she plays basically a slut in On The Road, a film that will be a disaster considering who is cast.

  44. Isa says:

    “Kristen Stewart is not popular because of anything she has done personally, but because she is part of a franchise that, literally, would have accepted ANYONE cast as Bella Swan.”

    So TRUE! She was horrible in it and still got loved because people loved the books. And the way that Meyer described the characters left a lot to be imagined. Anyone could’ve been cast, why they chose her confuses me to no end.

    That haircolor does nothing for her.

  45. flourpot says:

    This is CeleBitchy not CeleNice. If it was, I prolly wouldn’t come here and, then where would I release all my snark? <3

  46. Courtney says:

    she needs a reality check big time that comes with being an actor/actress of any note even if your a one note song bird. she won’t have a career like Patricia Neal or Vanessa Redgrave do/did those two actresses had/have presence tact beauty sensitivity and many other positive traits that ms Stewart seems to lack

  47. dj says:

    She needs to invest in herself and put her money towards some good therapy. She looks so uncomfortable and unhappy.

  48. Kim says:

    Oh trust us when your 15 mins are up in a few yrs you will be able to go wherever you want because no one will remember the girl from the vampire movies.

    Why can she not go outside but hundreds of stars WAY bigger than her go outside everyday? I can see not the mall but she acts like she is a prisoner. Please there are many places she could go outside and have privacy just like hundreds of other celebs do everyday.

    She hit the jackpot getting the Bella role like Jenn Aniston hit the jackpot with Friends. Neither are talented and neither produces good work beyond what they got lucky for.

  49. Sarah says:

    @anti- those guys are the designers for Proenza Schuler(sp?) whose clothes she is wearing.
    I love Jenny Lewis/Rilo Kiley a lot too, but anyways Kristen is super young. I’m pretty sure a majority of younger people are still very self involved, myself included, and she is not an exception.

  50. almond says:

    @47. Isa Actually, what Meyer did with Bella’s appearance was to describe herself -if she was seventeen again and 110 pounds. There was a picture of her floating around with all of Bella’s traits identified on her face: ­ marry sue

  51. Camille says:

    Yes her days are numbered in terms of crazy Twilight fame (thank god, that would wear anyone out I would imagine) and her interviews do make for a kind of uncomfortable read because you pick up on how uncomfortable she is with the whole fame thing, but argghh I just can’t hate this chick. I just find her kind of down to earth and sort of normal. I don’t know how anyone ‘normal’ would handle that kind of crazy fame that she has had to deal with.
    I also think she is very pretty, although that cover shot is not good. *shrug*

  52. PandaBear says:

    i truly cannot believe anna wintour went for this. terrible choices, many of them.

  53. Mia Girl says:

    @oh pity me
    I realize there is a whole lot of craazzyy to go around when it comes to twilight diehard fans, whoever they are fanning on Stewart or Pattinson, etc.
    And speaking of, sounds like maybe you are one in disguise getting some craazzyy out on her. Relax.

  54. Jeri says:

    Maybe she’ll go on to become a respected actress with a hugely respected body of work.

    She’s been in the biz for a while (longer than the Twilight series)and you just can’t always predict some things.

  55. Shy says:

    Kristen will be totally forgotten in 5 years and will be easily going to that damn supermarkets :)

    Of course she will do those little films like Runaways or Rileys. But the thing is that no one will care.

  56. Confuzzle says:

    Whoah. She reminds me of late eighties Jodie Foster in these pix.

  57. latam2012 says:

    i still dont get it, whats she done wrong?

  58. Isa says:

    almond- Wow! I didn’t even see that. I’ve only saw pictures of Meyer that are recent and she’s put on weight. I almost didn’t recognize her from the link you posted. It amuses me. :)

    Confuzzle- She does, doesn’t she? You may know this already but she played Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room. I was very confused at first as to whether or not she was a boy or a girl. But it’s the only movie of hers that I’ve enjoyed.

  59. isabella says:

    trust me.she’s a lesbian.

  60. Chris says:

    I saw the runaways on a flight a couple of months a go. I liked her in it. … I don’t know if I want to admit it, but she’s growing on me.

  61. Jenny says:

    If you actually had read the article you wouldve read about how she is thinking about opening halfway houses for women who have been used as sex slaves. Ungrateful? I think not. Socially awkward and not liking attention doesn’t make someone horrible or ungrateful. I don’t even watch these twilight movies but I hate to see people hating on a girl just because she’s different.

  62. Stephanie says:

    She seems very obnoxious and as far as I can tell has little to no talent. However she seems to have a very high opinion of herself. I would not call any of her work remotely challenging.

    I’m just going to throw a stupid question out there. Why the hell do these people try to become famous actors if they are generally unpleasant and don’t want a huge fanbase and lots of attention? I know this is a naieve question; I just look at her and I’m like, WTF if you hate it so much! Quit and move!

  63. cara says:

    lol, I love that everyone’s complaining what a complainer she is but most everyone sounds like a bitter cow themselves. pot. kettle. black, ladies.

  64. ur mama says:

    Be kind – she is so young!! She is only in her 20′s and probably is just trying to figure herself out. Really, do we ever figure that out? I am in my forties and still clueless!

  65. me says:

    What is a person with no fashion sense, who has to ask what she is wearing on the red carpet, who takes her shoes off at important events…doing on the cover of Vogue. Vogue has really gone down and could she be more pretentious? She is CRYING about returning to work on a movie that will pay her 25 million and made her a star…she only will do parts that are important? Zathura? are you kidding?She cant go to the mall? I hate to break it to her but there are WAY more important and famous people than her that manage to lead more normal lives.
    She comes across as SO ungrateful and obnoxious. It has been the same for a long time I am so sick of her and her attitude. It is obviously her personality because I am sure she has a PR team trying to work that out…imagine if she was on her own?!I dont get it and I cant wait until she isnt shoved down our throats anymore
    cant come soon enough

  66. almond says:

    @ cara As others have said, this is celebitchy not celebnice.

    If I wanted to say nice things about her I’d go to the imbd message boards and chant her name with the rest of the fanatics. Yeah, she seems normal, she’s not a famewhore and she’s actually thinking about a good charity.

    But I can also say that she’s very impressed with herself and her craft and acts as if she’s doing Ibsen at the Royal Theater, when in fact she’s, at best, mediocre.

    And the fame-curse is such an old shtick! Yeah, the fans are crazy, the franchise is shit. But she sure changed her tone when talking about them: didn’t she call the fans retards, said the books were shit? Now she cares about the fans so much… Ugh.

  67. Oh pity me says:

    Jenny: the stuff about opening shelters is not in the interview but is made up by some internet media, work of her PR people.

    The quotes you see above is what she said, no mention of charity. Nice try.

  68. emma says:

    It’s kind of amazing how much she hates her fans and has no problem saying it over and over and over and over and over.

  69. Vi says:

    what i don’t understand is if you’re so uncomfortable with fame and attention why you’d get into movies? i mean if you want to act, do theatre- no fame (no money either) and ten times as rewarding. ok i’m biased on that as i work in theatre but really if you hate media attention why go into a job where being successful means being hounded?

  70. Hakura says:

    Same damn expression in every picture. NO look on her face whatsoever.

    Sort of like she’s trying to give that “I’m so amazing, I can stare blankly into space and still end up on newsstands all over the world.”

    I can’t stand when celebrities complain about their jobs. She’s made so much money she’d never have to work another day. I know celebrity can be stressful, & you lose your privacy for awhile. But complaining about being successful does nothing to endear her to me.

    Don’t know why, maybe because she’s been shoved into the public’s faces with Twilight, but she irritates the crap out of me.

  71. Whiney McWhine says:

    She looks terrified on that cover. Why does she do these mags and interviews when she’d rather have her toenails pulled off?

    Also, if she hates the burdens of fame so much, she should switch careers. No one likes a whiner, especially ones who whine about the career that made them multi-millionaires.

  72. Whiney McWhine says:

    @UR, she’s been in this biz for 10 years and grew up in Hollywood (her parents are in the biz). She knows how it goes and yet still moans. Her fans say to give her a break because she’s 20. There are younger actors who handle fame better and when they goof, we aren’t asked to give them a break because of age.

  73. TXCinderella says:

    Robert Pattinson seems like a genuinely nice person, but I think Kristen’s pissy attitude is rubbing off on him. Before they were dating, he was always sweet and funny in his interviews. Now he just seems bothered by it all. I’m sure it does suck to not be able to go out in public without being mauled, but he didn’t have to sign up for more Twilight movies, neither did Kristen.

  74. junipergreen says:

    I think she’s cute. And she’s young, so yeah, she says some stupid shit sometimes…but we all did. You gotta go through every age…she’s in her early twenties and its hows. So what.

    @JuniperGreen (#78)- “And she’s young, so yeah, she says some stupid shit sometimes…but we all did. You gotta go through every age…she’s in her early twenties and its hows. So what.”

    I’m in my early twenties, don’t make millions of dollars for 20 minutes worth of screen time, & yet I still manage not to be a whining idiot.

    Please don’t blame her stupidity on my age group. -_-

  76. Lemon Drops says:

    That bronde (brown+blonde) hair isn’t doing her any favours. At all.
    @Hakura- Good point! I’m also in my early twenties and everything I have, I’m grateful for.

    Don’t get her appeal. K-Stew should really try to stop whinning all the time. If you don’t like the heat get out the kitchen.

  78. P'Allen says:

    Haha…aw. This is why I never come to KStew posts. I honestly think she’s a pretty terrible actress but there was nothing obnoxious about this interview. I think a lot of you are projecting your previous hatred onto this one because there’s nothing wrong with it at all.

    Ah well, I find her totally harmless. And I think she’s pretty in that “Plain Jane” kind of way.

    Honestly, it’s not ‘hatred‘. I dislike her, & think she’s a moron who’s gotten fame & glory for mediocre acting ability, just because she got a role in a series akin to ‘Harry Potter‘ in fanatic popularity. Built-in instant fan base. But that’s my opinion.& don’t mean to come across as disrespecting those who do like her.

    I just resent it whenever someone in my age group speaks publicly & comes off idiotic (we already have plenty to do that. Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Jessica Alba, JERSEYSHORE, & almost every ‘Girl Next Door’ in Hef’s harem). Doesn’t do much for the rest of the world’s opinion of American 20-somethings.

    Let me get this straight: She whines in the interview about how famous and recognizable she is, and how HARD that is for her to endure…then she does a Vogue Cover???

    God, I hate this ungrateful little bitch. There are THOUSANDS of actresses who struggle every day to make ends meet and find their way…and all this girl can do is complain about how much of a burden it is being rich and famous?

    That’s just it with her and her fans. They say she is so mature for age and so down to earth and real, but then they she’s just 20 and it’s understandable that she makes mistakes. Which is it though? Is she mature beyond her years or is she still a kid who can only express herself through expletives and ridiculous hyperbole? They can’t have it both.

    And goddamnit, I can’t help get pissy when I hear this chick complain. Does she complain while walking to the bank too?

    And whoever said she should try theater if she wants to get away from fame: can you imagine this jittery chick fumbling on stage and mumbling and stuttering through her lines? That’s such a funny and tragic image at the same time.

  82. almond says:

    @Str8Shooter Famous, I can understand. I’d be terrified if I were suddenly a celebrity. But I’d definitely grind my teeth and bear through it all if it meant earning more than $ 25 million. I wouldn’t have to fret over my future, I’d offer my parents a well-deserved and luxurious retirement and I’d finally get to help all those charities at which now I could only be a volunteer. And all that just for enduring 4 years of crazy fans and sleezy paps. Where do I sign up?

  83. SEWAD09 says:

    Wow- look at all the jealous haters.

    You all sound pathetic. Hating on a girl because she makes millions and complains? She got lucky. You didn’t. Get over it. As for the complaining- she has the right to it. Money is not everything. Money doesn’t make problems go away. She is still human. And I don’t think the majority of ya’ll understand how popular she is right now. I do believe that she wouldn’t be able to go to the mall without being mobbed. And I honestly think she did not mean to appear “stuck up” or “snobby” in the interview. Jeez people. cut the girl some slack.

  84. P'Allen says:


    Understood. I don’t particularly like her that much so I’m not really *that* offended. lol. I just thought this was one of those interviews where she didn’t come off as esp dumb.

    And I also fall into her age range being only a year older than her. So I guess I kinda come at it from another direction where I interact w/so many people my age who think they know everything (like her and Megan Fox) when they really don’t know anything at all. (We all thing we’re so worldly.) They just don’t have the platform to spew it. So I generally just find it amusing when KStew and MFox do it.

    …And “hatred” was an unnecessarily strong word haha.

  85. Whiney McWhine says:

    @Almond, but she’s not a sudden celeb. She’s been in this biz since she was ten or so. She’s also the daughter of people who are in the business. Also, if she hates fame, she should take time off, finish high school for real, do theater, etc.

  86. Hakura says:

    @P’Allen (#88)- I’m a few years older, myself (24), & I guess I just find it discouraging that people who aren’t very smart are normally the ones who end up with the platform to make statements to the whole world.

    Actually, I think it’s amusing when Megan Fox does it. She has the sort of ‘diva-moron-look-at-my-body‘ persona, so I don’t think people assume we’re all like that. Kristen comes across as more ‘average’ though, so I think they could easily make that assumption.

    @SEWAD09“Wow- look at all the jealous haters.”

    Oh, shove a sock in it. Deciding everyone who dislikes someone is a ‘jealous hater‘ is asinine & immature.

    Should she have a right to complain? Sure. But not in public interviews. It’s like throwing her success back in her fan’s faces… It equates to “Oh I’m so filthy rich, that even my great grandchildren will never have to work a day in their lives, I’m soooo famous, it’s such a burden. I can’t go anywhere without being bothered by fans.

    If she’s that tired of it, she should choose another profession, or just ride out the rest of this career with her mouth shut. She’ll fade into obscurity eventually.

  87. almond says:

    @Whiney McWhine Well, yes, but she’s been mostly in indies and before twilight she didn’t bleep on the radar. So sudden-OMFG-fame would be a shock.

    Still, from the perspective of 23 year old MA student who is still struggling with finding a job in the current economic climate, hearing an uber-rich girl complain non-stop about what are, essentially, trivial things is kind of grating. She has the platform, but she uses it to spew stuttered whines.

    And I don’t think she has the talent or the temperament to do theater. She’d be all over the place. As for finishing her studies, she’s said that she has a problem with authority, so yeah… I don’t see her meeting her paper deadlines or working on a dissertation. She seems like she thinks she knows so much, an organized educational system would just stifle her intellect.

  88. My Darling Pinkett says:

    Do you know, aside from the usual things I get from reading anything that KStew has said, the thing that really stuck out this time was Jenny Lewis. Does someone have an ickle wickle crush? And I don’t know, but I can’t help sensing that she actually does think a lot of herself. That’s just the impression I get whenever I read one of her interviews or look at her smirking in a picture. She seems to think that because she’s different (is nervous, overly-serious about herself, and takes bad indie roles, etc.), that she’s better than everyone else. Honestly a prefer a classy, kind actress who possesses real talent to this thing they call an actress. I am so sick of her “rebel” attitude.

    And I get that she’s uncomfortable, but, honey, it’s time to get over it. And yourself.

    This Vogue article sounds effing hilarious! I don’t think I’ll waste my money on buying a copy, though.
