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…
