Kristen Stewart Shares Childhood Memories And Why She Loves To Act


‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ star Kristen Stewart shares childhood memories and more in the June issue of ELLE.

Kristen on regretting her sheltered upbringing: “You can learn so much from bad things. I feel boring. I feel like, Why is everything so easy for me? I can’t wait for something crazy to f****** happen to me. Just life. I want someone to f*** me over! Do you know what I mean?”

Kristen on the gold ring circling her index finger rumored to be from Robert Pattinson:“Everyone wants to know. Everyone knows already—it’s ridiculous.”

Kristen on her first memory of her mother Jules, a Hollywood script supervisor: “I would stay up and wait for her. I wasn’t even big enough to hug her yet. I would just run in and wrap myself around her leg. I loved going through her bag. There was such a particular smell. That’s a real sensory memory for me. I was always wondering, like, Where were you today? I know that’s why I’ve always been like, Wow! Movies!”

Kristen on what it’s like to see herself on the screen:“Laurence Olivier was asked, ‘Actors, what’s the impulse? Why?’ And he was just like, ‘Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me….’ That was his answer. But at the same time it’s like, ‘Nooo, don’t look at me. Look at some version that I’m going to present to you. Let me control it.’ ”

Kristen on the intensity of her characters’ roles:“It’s one of the reasons I want to act. I love living in different worlds, because a lot of times mine is pretty nice and easy.”
