graces the cover of the October issue of British Vogue and discusses the hardships of being in the public eye with the magazine. The “Twilight” star, who has kept a very low profile since news of her affair with married director Rupert Sanders broke, explains in the interview that she just isn’t capable of being smooth.
Speaking to the upcoming issue of Vogue UK, the scandal-plagued 22-year-old actress says, “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. 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. 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.”
In the photo shoot, Stewart looks glamorous in a Gucci dress, with her brunette locks styled to the side. However, for her recent film “On the Road,” she had to dye her hair blonde, a change she wasn't quite happy about.
The “Snow White and the Huntsman” star, who infamously cheated on her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, with Sanders, tells the magazine, “I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!”
Stewart plays Marylou, a member of the Beat generation, in “On the Road,” which is an adaption of Jack Kerouac’s novel of the same name. Although the era is long before her time, the actress tells Vogue that it is a period that she can associate with.
She says, “There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. 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,” she adds. “People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.”
Stewart appears on the cover of the issue, which hits newsstands Friday.
