Kirsten Stewart says women have to work "a little bit harder" in Hollywood

Kristen Stewart has claimed women have to work harder in Hollywood because the industry is "disgustingly sexist".

The Twilight star plays a personal assistant to a big Hollywood star in new movie The Clouds Of Sils Maria, opposite Juliette Binoche.

Stewart, 25, told Harper's Bazaar UK: "Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy."

The former child star - whose love life has been under a magnifying glass since she dated her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, and then cheated on him with Snow White And The Huntsman directer Rupert Sanders - admitted she does no't enjoy fame.

Stewart told the magazine: "Fame is the worst thing in the world. Especially if it's pointless. When people say, 'I want to be famous', Why? You don't do anything."

The tomboy star also opened up about her weight.

She said: "I'm a little bigger than sample size when I'm eating cheeseburgers and am happy and comfortable.

"If I'm stressed or working, the weight falls off. My weight and my sleep are tied to my nervous system. Sometimes I'll sleep for 12 hours a night and sometimes sleep just doesn't exist for me for a couple of months."
