Kristen Stewart, the young actress who’s had a bit of a rough Summer after she confessed to engaging in an affair with a 41 year old man, is featured on the cover and in the pages of British Vogue magazine for the first time ever. With a couple of big movies on the horizon, K. Stew has a lot of promo appearances ahead of her so this Vogue cover is just par for the course. It’s unclear when the interview for this feature was conducted (ie. pre-cheating scandal or post-cheating scandal) but the interview excerpts that have been released do not include discussion of her personal life (at least, in terms of the cheating scandal). Stewart talks, again, about how clumsy she is so if that’s interesting to you, this interview might be one you’ll want to read. Click below to check out Kristen Stewart‘s first British Vogue cover and read some bits from her featured interview.
Kristen Stewart graces the cover of October’s British Vogue, and the star is once again opening up about her philosophies about celebrity life and why she doesn’t “get off” on her fame. “I know that 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,” Stewart says in the issue, which hits newsstands Friday. “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,” she added. “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.” With such a spotlight put on her personal life, especially over the course of this summer after she was photographed kissing her “Snow White” director Rupert Sanders, the actress likens her feelings about being on the A-list to the ones held by the Beat Generation, as seen in her next release, “On the Road” based on Jack Kerouac’s novel. “There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version,” she explains to the magazine. “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.”
I can’t say that I’m wowed by these photos but they do look very Vogue so, I guess they’re good? I dunno. Kristen Stewart‘s interviews don’t ever really jump off the page at me. I find that she never really has anything too substantive to say but because of her popularity, she is constantly sought after for new interviews. It’s sad to say but her cheating scandal has been the most interesting thing about her career, I think. I’m not saying that what she did was right or wrong but after years of not really having anything to say about the young actress, well, at least now she’s got people talking. While I honestly find it a bit hard to feel sorry for Stewart, I can understand how the forthcoming promo junket for her films may be difficult for her. But, in order for her to enjoy the wealthy life of a celebrity, the scrutiny comes with the territory. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out for her but I think in the long run, she’ll be just fine.
