“I think that I related to Snowy because … I love her. She feels such strong things and sort of can’t say exactly why she feels those things … and I can completely relate to that and I also can relate to feeling arrogant about it a little bit. Sort of like ‘It’s not about being who you are; it’s sort of not saying what everyone thinks I’m going to say because I’m uncomfortable’ … She’s like very instinctive and sort of awesome in that way. I mean she’s such a child in the beginning and has such a strong sense of self in a way that sort of isn’t normal, like supernaturally almost. She’s got this connection to the Earth and to her people that makes her like so truly empathetic and not sympathetic. She’s not putting herself in a position and going, ‘Oh, how horrible would that be for me.’ She’s truly bleeding for other people. It’s a different feeling. It’s something I want to get to if I can be a better person. She’s a great girl. She’s a good person.”
No, ok, I understand some of what Kristen Stewart is trying to say here. She thinks Snow White is a wonderful person. That’s cool, I guess, and I get what she’s saying towards the end there, where she goes on about Show White’s connection to her people. But what is all that mess in the middle, that talk about arrogance? This bit in particular:
“She feels such strong things and sort of can’t say exactly why she feels those things … and I can completely relate to that and I also can relate to feeling arrogant about it a little bit. Sort of like ‘It’s not about being who you are; it’s sort of not saying what everyone thinks I’m going to say because I’m uncomfortable.'”
Seriously, what does that even mean? Is she trying to say that she feels arrogant about not being able to express herself? Is she arrogant about having feelings that are so strong that they are hard to express? Then how does being uncomfortable come into it? Does she feel superior because she’s awkward and passionate? I don’t understand.
And listen, I’m not trying to come down on her for this. It’s not because I’m a Kristen Stewart fan or anything, it’s just because I don’t think it’s fair to criticize someone when you have no clue what the hell she’s trying to say. And actually, this makes me feel a bit closer to Kristen, because I’m really bad at talking too. I had to make a doctor’s appointment this morning, and I spent five minutes thinking about what exactly I would say, and how to answer any questions I might be asked. I took time to be like “should I say that I need to make an appointment or should I ask if I can make an appointment,” that’s how awkward I am with talking. I feel like Kristen and I are, in some ways, on a similar level when it comes to socializing, so I can’t really dislike her too much for the stupid shit she says in interviews anymore.
But still, no clue what she’s trying to communicate here. No clue at all.
