Not that for Twi-hards she ever wasn’t, but with her new film Snow White and the Huntsman out in the cinemas, Kristen Stewart is hot property again. And along with that come a plethora of magazine covers and editorials, the last of which is the July 2012 issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
Could this be the sexiest the rebel star can get? The 21-year-old actress looks sexy and sophisticated and surprisingly comfortable in her skin – as opposed to the shier Kristen we are used to seeing on red carpets – in the shoot lensed by Mario Testino.
In the interview Kristen talks about Twilight, her past fashion struggle and loads more. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vanity Fair!
On being criticised
“I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph,. I get some serious **** about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like **** in half my photos, and I don’t give a ****. What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’ I don’t care about the voracious, starving **** eaters who want to turn truth into ****. Not that you can say that in Vanity Fair!”
On her past fasion issues
“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting—you don’t shave your legs!”
On realising that Twilight had changed her life
“You can Google my name and one of the first things that comes up is images of me sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and my dog. It was [taken] the day the movie came out. I was no one. I was a kid. I had just turned 18. In [the tabloids] the next day it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot, whereas I’m kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot. Big deal. But that changed my daily life instantly. I didn’t go out in my underwear anymore.”
