Kristen Stewart featured in INTERVIEW magazine. On her life now: The sad thing is that I feel so boring because Twilight is literally how every conversation I have these days begins, whether it’s someone I’m meeting for the first time or someone I just haven’t seen in a while.
The first thing I want to say to them is, ‘It’s insane! And, as a person, I can’t do anything!’ But then I think to myself, God damn it, shut the f*ck up. On Twilight themes: The weirdest f*cking themes run through this story, like dominance and masochism.
I mean, you always have to realize that the story needs to make sense to the 11-year-olds who read the book and aren’t necessarily going to be viewing a scene as foreplay. But then there is the other segment of the audience, a large percentage, who does see the scene as foreplay.
And it’s pretty deep, heady foreplay. [laughs] So it’s fun to play it both ways. I mean, I don’t know what it feels like to make out with my vampire boyfriend because it isn’t something that anybody has ever felt. But it’s funny to think that a lot of the audience is 10 years old and will maybe one day grow up to realize there are a lot of involved thoughts in Twilight that they didn’t see before.
