Kristen Stewart is no stranger to facing scrutiny in the public eye, but now, at 25-years-old, the star talks to Marie Claire about how she has a much better handle on herself and this thing called fame.
The actress, who currently stars in American Ultra opposite her Adventureland co-star Jesse Eisenberg, took some time to talk to the mag while she was in Atlanta filming for Ang Lee’s latest, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. She held nothing back either, touching on everything from apologies, handling success at a young age and more.
Read below for some excerpts from Kristen’s interview with the mag:
On reaching peace with her public image
“I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is fucking awesome.”
On her success at a young age
“Between ages 15 and 20, it was really intense. I was constantly anxious. I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating.”
“Lately, I’ve been doing less of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry.’ And more of the ‘No. Fuck. Jesus.’”
On her past and moving forward
“Speaking very candidly, it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more feral.”
