Pardon the profanity in the headline, but that is indeed a direct quote. You see, Kristen Stewart is not here for your nonsense. She doesn’t care if you think she’s miserable, a bad actress, a pothead, a cheater, whatever – she’s not buying into it, so that’s all on you. Basically, she’s just living her life and you don’t know dick-shit about it. So there.
From Vanity Fair France:
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. I have very much fallen into every situation, every creative and not creative experience, that I have delved into, based on gut. Therefore true regret can never eat at me. 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 flavors they’ve picked up at the newsstand or in the theater 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 bullshit 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. But I feel oddly capable of stepping outside and going, “Isn’t it obvious to everyone?” I mean, it’s fun, like Valentine says, in Sils Maria. The stories are fun, but do you not realize that there are characters that have been cast in the media and people like to get their weekly fill on these stories. It’s like soap opera. I try not to let it mess with me, because my true personal life, as much as people think they know about it, they don’t know dick shit. Who could? By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the fuck is going on. You’re going to die. You’re going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you’re going to grow old with. But you’re going to lay next to them in the middle of the night deeply curious about them and who they are, because nobody f—king knows anything.
Look, I love me some KStew – always have, always will. I think it’s great that she’s refused to be told how she should be acting, what she should be doing, what her “job” is as an actress. It’s all fine for actresses to be bubbly and cheery and have bucketloads of what people find to be palatable personalities, but I really like that Kristen Stewart really does not give a single shit about any of that. If she wants to smile, she will. If she doesn’t, she certainly won’t – especially not because you told her to.
This whole thing did get lost in a neverending rant, I’ll admit, but what can I say? I’m a fan. More of her personality than her acting skills, but nevertheless…

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been through some serious shit together over the past 5 years. First, they endured the entire Twilight franchise. If that wasn’t enough, they also began dating in real life, only for KStew to cheat on RPattz with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. It was an escandalo! of epic proportions and everywhere in the press, but Robert must have managed to forgive her, because they got back together several times after that, and may still be dating now, in fact.
Well, it turns out Rob isn’t all that bothered by infidelity, in the end. In fact, apparently he thinks that’s just what young people do?
Like all things Twilight, the whole K-Stew / R-Patz saga was horribly overcooked. It’s not unusual for co-stars to date – they were both living and working in a strange bubble for many years, both of them under intense and obsessive scrutiny. And then it ended in betrayal.
“Shit happens, you know?” he laughs. “It’s just young people… it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a shit?”
Well, a lot of people, that’s what’s weird.
“The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict,” he says. “It’s like that scene in Doubt [2008, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behaviour], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”
RPattz has always been emo as shit, so I’m assuming he’s just trying to act like he doesn’t care so that he doesn’t come off as being too soft or bothered about the whole thing. Young or not, when you’re in love with someone and they’re unfaithful to you, I doubt you’d just shrug your shoulders and think, “Eh, shit happens!” I know there’s been a bit of time that’s passed since this was fresh, as well, it all just seems so flippant. Not that I expect him to pour his heart out to an international publication, but then why discuss it at all?
Obviously when you’re young, you’re much more careless in relationships and you do fuck up, perhaps repeatedly. I dunno, I just feel like that whole quote is weird as hell.

You may know Jenny Lewis from her work with Rilo Kiley, or her solo albums. You may not know Jenny Lewis at all, too – that’s possible. But she’s ready to put out some new solo material and she called on some big names to help her promote her new single, ‘Just One of the Guys’. Enter Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway, who dressed up as dudes for the occasion. Enjoy!
Jenny Lewis’ new album, The Voyager, will be out later this month.

Kristen Stewart is one of the great philosophical thinkers of our time, obviously. She’s not here for your standard Hollywood bullshit (despite being the starring actress in one of the biggest Hollywood franchises in history) and she basically thinks Europeans are doing it way better. Considering her deep thoughts about the acting and filmmaking industry, her latest role in Clouds of Sils Maria – itself a European film – seems like a good fit.
Let’s hear what KStew told Reuters about her experience and her thoughts on her career:
Q: Working with a European writer-director on this film, was that a different mindset from working in America? Is there a freedom that comes from working in Europe that you might not get in Hollywood?
A: It’s not absent in the States, but it’s not prevalent to feel free within the film industry, to feel like you can say what you want to say, not with any concern about how people are going to react to it, whether you’re going to piss them off.
So here, it seems like people are less afraid because again they’re doing it for themselves. It’s for the art of it. It’s not to market things. It’s just, it’s a good feeling.
You know, to make a movie is so ridiculous. We’re going to go film each other pretending to be other people so other people can watch us pretending to be other people? It’s insane. But if it’s worth it and it’s saying something … it can be transcendentally important.
Q: Is it difficult to remain yourself knowing the industry is pushing and pulling you this way and that, with the media often giving you a hard time regardless of what you do?
A: I don’t do what I do to … control perception or make people think a certain way about me. That would be traipsing all over the experience of making any film.
It’s just so ass-backwards to me. I don’t know how people do that. I don’t know how people tactfully traverse their careers. I don’t know how they choose, ‘Well, this is a different side of me people have not seen and so I will present that to them now.’ It’s like, ‘Why are you doing this for other people? You should be doing it for yourself.’ And so I’ve functioned from that position since I started, and therefore I really don’t care about all that.
I mean, good for her – she is dedicated to her “art” as she sees it and I do actually really like her. I like her style, I like that she doesn’t stand there smiling blankly for every camera that wants to flash a picture of her, I like her attitude. The whole RPattz cheating scandal was a hot mess (especially since I will place money on a bet that she’s still gayer than the day is long), but she’s young and stupid and she’ll end up okay, I’m sure.

So what do we think of this look: is it a “hell, yes” or a “God, no”? Personally, I don’t think it’s nearly as awful as her poetry. BOOM!

So, Kristen Stewart is apparently more than just an actress – she’s also an amateur poet and all-around artiste, and decided to share her “embarrassing” creation in the new issue of Marie Claire. Like, she literally recited this word for word despite the “it’s awful” front. It’s called “My Heart Is a Wiffleball / Freedom Pole” and… what?!
Here it is in all its beauty:
I reared digital moonlight
You read its clock, scrawled neon across that black
Kismetly … ubiquitously crest fallen
Thrown down to strafe your foothills
…I’ll suck the bones pretty.
Your nature perforated the abrasive organ pumps
Spray painted everything known to man,
Stream rushed through and all out into
Something Whilst the crackling stare down sun snuck
Through our windows boarded up
He hit your flint face and it sparked.
And I bellowed and you parked
We reached Marfa.
One honest day up on this freedom pole
Devils not done digging
He’s speaking in tongues all along the pan handle
And this pining erosion is getting dust in
And I’m drunk on your morsels
And so I look down the line
Your every twitch hand drum salute
I mean, I suppose I’ve seen worse… not much worse, but I know it exists out there.
I’m not sure what the point was in sharing this, as I imagine she wrote it as a more personal thing to get out whatever was going on in that head of hers. Oh man, do you guys think this is about RUPERT??? She mentioned parking somewhere, and we KNOW what went down (so to speak) there. Uh, way to throw it in Rob‘s face, Kristen. WHERE’S HIS POETRY?
