Kristen Stewart Says The Paparazzi Want Her Soul
'Twilight' star talks about the pitfalls of fame in British magazine.
It seems like everyone wants a piece of the "Twilight" cast these days. Ever since they began filming the first movie in the series, the "Twilight" stars have become immensely famous. And with that fame comes all the speculation about their personal lives and the media's never-ending need to see what the group — especially its leading stars, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson — are up to at any moment of the day.
It's something that Stewart addresses in the September issue of the British magazine Dazed & Confused. And it's a fitting topic following the photos that surfaced of Stewart and co-star Robert Pattinson getting cozy at a Kings of Leon concert last weekend in Canada.
"The fact is, the paparazzi and most interviewers, they want your soul," she said in the magazine. "It's so scary because your persona ... and I guess I now have one, because people think of me in a certain way ... is all based entirely on quick snippets of crazed moments in your life. And that is what people then base their entire opinion of me on!"
She added that in those interviews, people can misconstrue what she says in any number of ways. "Anything you say can come and bite you in the ass," Stewart said. "It's not even like you say things you don't mean, it's just that sometimes they come out wrong."
The 19-year-old also said that when she chooses projects, she's careful to pick roles that she can relate to. "With 'Adventureland,' and pretty much everything else I've done, I've been lucky because they're characters I really identified with," she said. "Sometimes, I'll read something and it has something about it that makes you need to live it, and if you don't, it's like an unconsummated relationship."
