Kristen Stewart is the latest cover girl of Vogue UK, the October 2012 issue. In an interview taken before the cheating scandal that pushed her into hiding, the “Twilight” star muses on fame, dyeing her hair for the role in “On the Road” and shooting for the film.
Kristen’s fans already know that she was never – and never will be – comfortable with her celebrity status.
It’s not so much that she complains about being one of the most recognizable people on the planet, but rather that she insists that playing this whole fame game isn’t as easy as some would be tempted to believe.
She, for one, she tells Vogue, can’t put on an act for the world at large. She is, in that, authentic to the core.
“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,” she tells the interviewer.
Knowing that the entire world already has a preconceived notion about what being a celebrity is like only makes things harder for her.
“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,” Kristen explains.
“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,” she adds.
Stewart will soon be seen on the big screen in “On the Road,” based on a novel by Jack Kerouac, in a role that is outside her comfort zone.
She even dyed her hair blonde for the part.
“I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!” Kristen recalls.
The star, who hasn’t been seen out in public since news broke that she cheated on boyfriend Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, who directed her in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” is believed to emerge again once promotion for “On the Road” officially kicks off.
