Kristen Stewart may be going through a publicity thunderstorm after her cheating-scandal, but she still manages to look amazing on the cover of British Vogue.
The 22-year-old actress is readying the debut of her new film On The Road at the Toronto International Film Festival, but she may be best known for her work as Bella in the Twilight Saga.
Vogue capitalized on this, featuring the actress in a pale hue while wearing vibrant colors, like the Gucci dress she dons on the Mario Testino-photographed cover shoot.
Kristen got a chance to dish about everything from going blonde to the difficulty she has when it comes to “playing it cool.” Check out excerpts below!
On going blonde for her sexy new role in ‘On The Road’:
“I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!”
On how she struggles to play it cool:
“I know if you haven’t thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition. But, dude, honestly? I can’t. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”
On her empathy for the Beat generation:
“There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. It’s not necessarily a rebellious thing, it’s just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then. It’s the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do. People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.”
