Kristen Stewart cleans up nice! (Unless it’s the MTV Movie Awards of course)
K-Stew is on the cover of the new Vanity Fair, boasting an “Ultra-Glam Makeover,” and dishing about her personal life.
As for her being criticized for her “look,” Stewart is fine with it. She tells the mag, “I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I get some serious sh-t about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, ‘What an actress!’ ‘What a faker!’ That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like sh-t in half my photos, and I don’t give a f–k.
“What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’ I don’t care about the voracious, starving sh-t eaters who want to turn truth into sh-t. (Not that you can say that in Vanity Fair!)”
As for being a “tomboy” and dealing with her image now that Twilight has launched her into a new level of fame, Stewart adds,
Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! she says. “Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes.
“But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me, she adds. “I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting — you don’t shave your legs!”
She is more conscious of her fashion choices these days, though.
“You can Google my name and one of the first things that comes up is images of me sitting on my front porch smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and my dog. It was [taken] the day [Twilight] came out,” she explains. “I was no one. I was a kid. I had just turned 18.
“In [the tabloids] the next day it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot, whereas I’m kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot. Big deal. But that changed my daily life instantly. I didn’t go out in my underwear anymore.”
