Kristen Stewart in Marie Claire March 2014: I Had No Idea "Twilight" Would be Huge
The 23-year-old looked picture perfect in designer duds from Proenza Schouler and Tom Ford for the Tesh-shot spread while opening up about everything from her views on love to her other career aspirations.
Highlights from Miss Stewart's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Marie Claire!
On her love life:
"You don't know who you fall in love with. You just don't. You don't control it. Some people have certain things like, 'That's what I'm going for,' and I have a subjective version of that. I don't pressure myself... If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them - but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I'm much too young to even have an answer to that question."
On her favorite roles:
"Dude. I had no what I'm doing and that's kind of how I love it. I had no idea 'Twilight' was going to be huge. Certain movies I've done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it's fun not having so much control. It's kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle - it's fun but it's scary as f***. If it's not scary, it's usually - you kind of have to step back and go, 'You're probably making this decision because it's right on paper.' But unless you get that irking fear, it's not right."
On her struggles with acting:
"I auditioned for a year before I got anything, and I told my mom I was kind of over it. I was like, 'I don't want to make you drive around L.A. anymore. If it's not happening, it's not worth it.' They thought I looked like a boy. I didn't think it was going to pan out. And then literally that day I got 'The Safety of Objects,' which was my first movie."
On her directing goals:
"The idea of making a move scares me because I want it to be amazing if people watch it. I don't want, 'Oh, how nice. Her first directional debut.' I want it to be, 'Boom!'"
On her haters:
"I stand by every mistake I've ever made. So judge away."
