Ugh. UGH. Just when I start feeling a pang of sympathy towards poor, pathetic Kristen Stewart, she ruins it with that mouth of hers. Kristen appears on the new issue of Glamour Germany – I’m not enough of a Twihard to know if this is a completely new photo shoot and interview, so all I can tell you is that other sites are running the shoot and interview as if it’s completely new, so I’ll just take their word for it. Obviously, this interview was probably done before The Great Mini-Coopering, and as such, Kristen still has the same twitchy, conceited, self-absorbed attitude that she’s always had. There’s something really, really rich in here, so read the excerpts first:
On the end of Twilight: ‘I’m relieved. Not that it’s finally over but that we told a story from beginning to end. A story I and all my colleagues invested a lot of energy in. I lived in the Twilight world for about four years. That’s a very long time that demands a lot of patience on your part.’
On how she survived the grueling schedule: ‘Thank God, I had the opportunity to do smaller movies like The Runaways, Welcome to the Rileys, and On the Road in between [shooting the Twilight films]. Otherwise I’d probably have turned mad.’
On the industry being littered with phonies: ‘I would never work with people who aren’t really creative and aren’t committed to what they do. Unfortunately, there are a lot of those people out there, they are f**king everywhere, and they try to suck the soul out of you. For example, I would never do a makeup campaign, even though the [final] photos with me would probably look good. Thank you, but it doesn’t interest me.’
On her life right now: ‘I notice that, at the moment, I am in an immensely intense phase of my life. It feels like I could burst from all my energy any minute now. And I don’t want this fire burning inside of me to go out.’

First of all, enough with the petty little swipes at the Twilight franchise – yes, the franchise sucks, and YES, Kristen is one part of why the franchise sucks so hard (it’s not ALL about the source material and the bad scripts, you know?). Enough about “patience” and how she would have gone “mad”. For the love of God, Kristen. You are one of the biggest reasons why the franchise sucks so hard!!!
But really, the money quote is this: “Unfortunately, there are a lot of those people out there, they are f**king everywhere, and they try to suck the soul out of you. For example, I would never do a makeup campaign, even though the [final] photos with me would probably look good. Thank you, but it doesn’t interest me.” She’s TOO HARDCORE to do a makeup campaign. A makeup campaign would be beneath her, although OBVIOUSLY she would look great, of course. Because makeup campaign people suck and they are SO uncreative and soulless and awful but she’s simply TOO AUTHENTIC to even deign to represent a makeup company.
…But she’ll represent a perfume, of course. Balenciaga Florabotanica anyone?
