Stewart plans to help sex workers

Kristen Stewart wants to give something back and help sex trade workers

Kristen Stewart is thinking of setting up halfway homes for workers wanting to leave the sex trade.

Inspired by her research into the subject for Welcome To The Rileys, in which the Twilight star plays a stripper who wants to escape the seedy industry, she is now considering using her fortune to help those in need.

"That would be amazing - right now it's the thing I feel most connected to," she told US Vogue.

She continued: "It's funny when you are endowed not only with public recognition on a f***ing seriously vast level, but also money, like, funds. 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?'."

Kristen, who reprises her role as Bella Swan in the final two instalments of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, revealed she is grateful she began her career before teenage insecurities set in.

"At that time I just thought it was fun," she said.

"I don't think I would 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'."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
