K-Stew talks media mania
Kristen Stewart may not like interacting with the media, but she concedes that nobody forced her into a career in the movies.
The actress rose to global fame after playing Bella Swan in the Twilight movies, which also led her to meet ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
The pair enjoyed an on-off relationship, but after photos surfaced of Kristen kissing then-married director Rupert Sanders, their relationship struggled to survive.
"Yeah, I do," Kristen told Vanity Fair France when asked whether she knows about experiencing a tsunami of media scrutiny.
"The way that I talked about my forced interaction with the media is that nobody forced me to be an actor. But it would be crazy to deny that this is just a different beast—nobody could have signed up for it."
Kristen is a notoriously private actress, and through much of her relationship with Robert she never admitted to actually dating him.
The 24-year-old star is also not accommodating when it comes to the paparazzi, and she recently spoke about her refusal to smile for them when they catch her off guard.
"I never really thought of anything in terms of designing a career. I never tried to shape people's perspectives of me, which is something that a lot of people do. There are certain actors and artists who want to be a certain kind of actor or certain kind of artist, and I'm really not like that," she sighed.
Further elaborating on the point, Kristen tells the glossy publication that whatever people's views are, she's not overly bothered.
"In terms of what people consume about you and then subsequently how they shape their opinion of you, none of it is wrong. It's all a varied assortment of whatever flavours they've picked up at the newsstand or in the theatre or on the Internet.
"But that literally is something that is not designed by me and so it's not something that bothers me. But I don't want to add to this already pre-existing, enormous mound of salacious bulls**t that isn't real. That's not me defending anything. That's true. Just being in the middle of it it's weird to comment on it," she added.
