Kristen Stewart

Dennis Hopper
Craig Mcdean

The only way for me not to have somebody know where I went the night before is if I didn’t go out at all. So that’s what I’m trading . . . Some nights, I think, “You know what? I don’t care. I’m just going to do what I want to do.”—Kristen Stewart

HOPPER: Did you study with anyone? Or did you just pick it up through association?

STEWART: No, I just walked into it.

HOPPER: You learned it there. That’s the best place to learn. I saw Panic Room again last night.

STEWART: Really? I haven’t seen that in so long. That was the second movie I ever made. Thank god Jodie Foster did that movie because I wasn’t thinking about anything on that set. I was literally just hanging out with her and being myself. I can’t think about watching that—it would kill me. It would be like watching a home movie.

HOPPER: But you’re so good in it. Did you go to school while you were working as a kid?

STEWART: I went to public school up until junior high. I know it’s a little late and I’m a little old, but I just finished high school—with honors. The other day I was doing a graduation scene on Eclipse, and I had just finished high school myself the week before, so I told the crew, “Hey, just so you know, I’m actually graduating right now, and I’m not going to have another ceremony.” So I took a mock picture with an extra. I literally asked the actor to come back and shake my hand and hand me the diploma while I was dressed in a cap and gown.

Fanning, and he knows her as well, so it was cool. I actually hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. So it was sort of a trip because I’m different and he’s not. You know what I’m saying?

When I first saw Kristen in Twighlight, I thought wow, she is cute. Then I read an article selling New Moon where her co-actor was talking about her that got me interested in knowing more about Kristen. Obviously these are just films and you can't base a judgement about a person based on a character in a film but I wanted to try and get to know something about Kristen rather than just a good looking actress with talent. Being in cinema since a child, I have to admit I was expecting someone shallow but after reading a few interviews I am very surprised at the depth Kristen has. The biggest problem is trying to work out what is coming from her and what is made up by the tabeloids. I feel like I have a hundred questions and none of them are Twighlight related. I am specifically interested in what her co-actor said and in knowing if there is any truth in her passion for French literature and cinema. When I read that I nearly dropped my laptop that a 19 year old could be interested in some

I bought the magazine. I believe the interview was very good. I feel Kristen is a great actor and doing a very good job with being so busy and handling all the hype that comes with it.
Kristen, be true to yourself and enjoy life. Very good job.
Thank you

I think that Kristen Stewart is incredibly talented young lady. I read her interview in Allure and I felt sorry for her with all the crap she has to deal with. Being a teenager is hard enough. Kristen just remember that the only person you have to worry about pleasing is the one in the mirror. During interviews, just say what is in your heart and if it isn't what people want to hear tough shit! Looks like you have a good friendship with Nikki, keep your friends close, that is what will get you through life.Keep doing what you love and love what you do! Don't let anyone change you!!!

I see Kristen as a beautiful young lady and soon will be out there more, with her talent just showing more and more. My daughter and I just god finish watching The Cake Eaters- Kristen has shown how great of an actor she is in playing the role Georgia- I love how she puts herself in all her movies... I also wanted to add how she has changed my life in a great way, her words "own what you want to own and keep it to yourself" has changed my life.. I hope someday to share my story , So Kristen if you see this , I hope someday to share my story on youve helped me through this year and many more years to come. Keep doing what youre doing no matter what everyone- I know youre strong!! :)
