Hollywood news has just learned that KRISTEN STEWART doesn’t like it when people look at her.
But we think all of you already knew that.
Though she’s been acting since she was a little kid, Kristen still isn’t used to being in the spotlight—even after skyrocketing to fame following the success of the “Twilight” film franchise. In fact, she hates the spotlight so much that she was once quoted as comparing constant paparazzi attention to being raped.
Known for being shy and somewhat awkward in the public eye, the actress talks about her aversion to the limelight in her recent interview with Marie Claire Australia.
“I’m particularly weird because I don’t even like being looked at. A lot of actors love it and they love going out and literally doing it as an activity. I hate it.”
“I don’t especially enjoy the process, to be honest. I have a lot of actor friends who love getting ready for something just because they feel kind of important. I don’t identify with that. But being in the public eye, I’m expected to look good and I understand that.”
One thing about being in the spotlight that Kristen has learned to like—after years and years of having it “forced” on her—is the fashion. She explains:
“It took years of my being forced on to the carpets when you have no choice but to do it, until one day you suddenly realise it’s a huge gift… It was one of those things that just felt right. I’m a huge fan of the fashion world now that I’ve been allowed to be a part of it, even if oftentimes I don’t even know what I’m wearing.”
Then, in a shameless bit of brand promotion, the Balenciaga spokesmodel adds:
“But whenever I put on anything by Balenciaga I’m like, ‘Oh, that looks like Balenciaga!’ You can see it, you can pick it out of a rack.”
