K. Stewart: ‘They Don’t Understand Me.’

Kristen Stewart interview: ‘Usually I come in and sit down at round tables in America and they look at me like ‘What is wrong with you?!’ Just because I don’t fit.. NOBODY fits into the frame that typical Hollywood young actresses do, but they TRY to. They try to be this thing.. try to memorize answers and make everybody happy. That’s like so horrifying and scary to me.

So when you’re NOT that, you get criticized for it. You get criticized for being honest and criticized for being nervous. So that’s kind of annoying. I do a whole day of press and then I get calls from publicity people that are like, ‘you might want to be a little bit more bubbly’.

And I’m like, ‘no.. no!’ People get very upset in the States. It’s weird. Fans of the book especially. They don’t understand me. Which is fine. I guess it doesn’t really matter who I am, I just hope they like the movie.’

    if you’ve seen her interview vids with her talking, she has an aura that makes you feel depressed and awkward.

    actors are role models, i wouldnt want my kids to grow up and become emo with no social skills.

  • melissa

    i really really hate when people are like “i’m so misunderstood, i’m a creative mind”

    like, people who are jocks or preppy or anything aren’t creative or misunderstood. we just don’t talk about it like we’re the only ones. everyones got problems. no one feels understood. but hey, get over it.

    i like kristen stewart and that she’s not trying to fit on but maybe if she made it into something funny like her being awkward it wouldn’t be so painful listening to her talk. robert pattinson is a nice kind of awkward. he laughs at himself when he says something dumb or doesn’t know an answer.

  • kristenrules

    SO FUCKING WHAT IF SHE’S EMO. SHE’S A GREAT ACTRESS. SHE OBVIOUSLY WANTS US TO FOCUS ON HER ACTING THAN HER.
    AND SHE’S REAL unlike those disney sluts. especially that mexican one

  • aly

    This is just my opinion. But I love her! I think she is real and honest and she seems very normal. Like she doesn’t want to fit into that Hollywood scene. I also like the fact that she seems to always be at a loss of words. Another normal thing. I like when celebrities seem normal. I also think kristen is great for the role of Bella. I think the people that don’t like her and that don’t feel she is right for Bella, are the people that read the series before the movie came out and they already had preconceived ideas and they’re own picture of what Bella was like. I am so glad I decided to read the series after I saw the movie, that way that exact same situation would not happen to me.

    Wow, Kristen. You really are a fucking retard. You signed up for this shit, if you didn’t realize it. Stop trying so damn hard to be a social outcast, you already are one. People aren’t obsessed with you, they’re obsessed with your fame and your spotlight. No one gives two shits about you and your horrible acting skills. Stop feeding us this “I’m original and unique and so misunderstood” BULLSHIT. No one is fucking buying it, because we’ve heard it all before. It’s a hard knock life for EVERYBODY, so do not put yourself on a high horse above us all. TWILIGHT SUCKED because of you. And then in all the publicity events, you acted like you had fucking TERRETS and you were in a foreign country and couldn’t speak the language. GET YOUR FUCKING SHIT TOGETHER. Act like you are at least proud of yourself, sit up in a fucking chair and make yourself presentable. You are now and ICON. You put yourself out there for the world to see, now play the part damnit. If it’s too much to handle, leave. I promise I won’t shed any tears over you.
    xoxo ;)

    i totally understand kristens point and being yourself and everything…but i mean she could try to be a lil more enthusiastic about it. she seems so down in a lot of interviews…even though she is an amazing actress in some movies..i really don’t think that she did that great of a job in twilight. to me it seemed like she lacked emotion in the movie..but hey thats just my opinion

    PSHH.

    She is the most honest actress ever I like her I like that she is not a vain Hollywood star … She does her job for the live of artband she is not fake at all and on top of that she is an amazing actress I’m definetely her fan…. She is so cool and chill and normal and real and yeah you can tell that she speaks her mind not like other actress who is obiovus that are reading like a script in interviews… That’s why I like listen to kristen interviews because you never know what shevis going to answer .. Is true like listen to those disney girls interviews and they always say the same things

  • Anonymous

    Woot! Go Kristen.
    She’s my favorite lol.

    And for those saying that Selena + other Disney stars are so fake, it comes with being signed to Disney. They train them like little circus animals.

    It’s refreshing to have Kristen in Hollywood. She’s totally real. I’m starting to get tired with the repetitive Disney act.

  • Tony

    Media, unfortunately, is part of the job.
    It sounds like you don’t get much guidance from your
    management. That’s part of what you pay them for.
    Ask them for some help in dealing with press junkets etc.
    Your comfort level will come along nicely the more you do.
    Otherwise, you do great work; but I’m sure you already knew
    that.
    I wish you continued success in your career and life!

  • Kourtney

    I think this somewhat makes her come off as sounding arrogant.

    but I understand what she means.

    she doesn’t want to act fake or not act like herself. I think there’s a lot of celebs who just act all happy and bubbly and sweet just for the camera *cough* vanessa hudgens *cough* just because thats what someone tells them thats how they have to act.

    I can respect her for wanting to remain true to herself.

  • heyyyyyy

    i think that is right that she is being honest all the time that she is being her self if it was me i would do the same thing to
    if i was disney star ill the truth all the time

  • Brittany

    Its really refreshing seeing a girl like her in hollywood.

  • Crys

    Up until recently Hollywood was behind big black doors and nobody ever knew how the actors really were and a lot of them WERE odd and a little awkward so it shouldn’t matter how she is just just what she brings to the table.

    You wouldn’t hate somebody who plays dumb blondes all the time just because they are really smart in real life and use big words, would you?

  • Anonymous

    im so glad she said that. take note all you publicist people out there. stop shoving things down your artists throats and let them live their lives the way they want. their work should speak for itself.

  • Kels

    She’s awesome.
    And, the first paragraph reminded me so much
    of the Jonas Brothers. They try so hard to make everyone happy they forgot what they started out as, three New Jersey boys trying to make it in music. Then, Disney came along. And they sold out. Truth hurts.

    And, sorry for putting the Jonas Brothers into a post that doesn’t even deal with them. Just, my thoughts.

    This actually reminds me of Selena Gomez because she tries to say the right thing, she tries to make everyone happy. I remember when Selena posted a video on Youtube and she said the word “Retarded”. That made many people angry, so she deleted the video, edited the word “retarded” out and re-uploaded the video on Youtube. I understand why she did it, she just doesn’t want to upset anyone, it was a mistake and she tried to fix it. There’s nothing wrong about fixing the mistakes you’ve made. Sometimes, Selena sounds rehearsed in her interviewers, but then again, the interviewers are always asking the same question. I think Selena is more real when she’s doing Youtube videos. I feel so sorry for Selena because tries to say the right thing, tries to be a good role model, tries to stay out of trouble so that she won’t damage her career, but people just misunderstands her and accuses her of being a “fake” and trying to be all “little miss perfect”.

    I’m sorry if I’m bringing Selena up to this, but what Kristen said reminded me about Selena and I just have to express my opinion about it.

    i get what she is saying but i also understand the kind of job disney stars have. its kind of seperate from artists who are out doing their own thing. disney artists do have certain standards they have to uphold which they SHOULD know perfectly well before getting signed. if they want to “be themselves” and blah blah, then don’t sign your name on a disney contract. disney comes with a job descritption, it is the artist job and the publicists job to maintain that.

    =====================
    See? THAT’S what I’m talking about. You guys accuse Selena of putting on act just because she’s trying to say the right thing and making people satisfied with what she says. Heck, I bet if Selena the same thing that Kristen just said, you guys would have just bash the hell out of her and say “oh Selena needs to stop complaining” and all the other bullshit. No matter what Selena does, putting on an act or not, she could never win with you guys because you’re always criticizing FOR EVERY LITTLE THING SHE SAYS OR DOES! Why? Because you think she’s a “Miley wannabe”, a “fake”, a “man stealer”, a “spotlight stealer”, a “bitch”, a “slut”, etc etc. etc.

    Oh poor baby. you can’t please everyone..and you’re just yourself.
    nobody would even care about her if she wasn’t bella.
    where were all the posts on her before she was bella?
    nobody cares about your little rants and raves about how you don’t fit in and you try to be yourself. so what. you signed the contract now deal with the life.
    If the “States” get angry, then they have a right. theyre paying to see your shit so you should make them happy.
    you’d be nowhere without the “states” or any people from anywhere else, because they’re the ones paying for your career. And calm down. im not speaking for everybody but i go to see twilight to see the book come to life. i dont go gaga like OMFG KRISTEN STEWARTS IN IT I HAVE TO SEE HER AMAZING BREATHY PERFORMANCE ONE MORE TIME
    anybody else could play bella. i doubt people would fight like they did for jacob if it were her ass on the line.
    so just stop being a pot head and get your shit together.

  • gwendolynn

    i think she seriously shouldn’t have done twilight if she wasn’t comfortable with the hollywood scheme.

    if hollywood does not fit with herself then why the hell did she sign up for this?.

    it’s ironic when she’s giving all the “im myself, im awkward, im different,i dont fit in this society, i dont give a crap, whatever dude.” attitude.

    i just don’t get why join hollywood when you despise it so much?

    that’s just my opinion and i am nooot hating on anyone just for the record. oh and please stop the disney bash :)

    EXACTLY! i dont understand why people dont like an actress who is normal and relatable. kristens just being who she is and thats mainly why i like her. if she wasnt then peole would say shes being fake.

    p.s) i read the books before i saw the movie and i had my version of bella already but i still think kristens good for the part. i think people just dont like her because she different and isnt afraid to show it. haters are just going to hate on anything because their such negative people
