Kristen Stewart Doesn’t Care If You Hate Her or If She Showered Today Because She’s So Edgy
Actress and general portrait of misery Kristen Stewart is making the dreaded press rounds for ‘On the Road.’ Two things we’ve re-learned: she really doesn’t care whether or not you like her, nor does she care about you enough to wash her hair before she shows up for interviews.
In her defense this time, she was getting over an illness from the night before.
“Last night I was sick with the flu and couldn’t go to this ‘On the Road’ screening,” she sayid apologetically. “Normally, I wouldn’t feel too terrible about missing a press event, but I felt awful because I’d do anything for this film. It holds a special place for me.”
Hear that, Summit? She gives far more effs about ‘On the Road’ than about the ‘Twilight’ franchise.
In fact, she’s just stoked that ‘Twilight’ is over. (So are we.)
“The only relief when it comes to Twilight is that the story is done. I start every project to finish the motherf—er, and to extend that [mentality] over a five-year period adapting all of these treasured moments over four books, it was constantly worrying,” she said. “But as long as people’s perspective of me doesn’t keep me from doing what I want to do, it doesn’t matter.”
A “motherf—er” and a sentiment of not caring at the same time? Oh, K-Stew, you rebel!
“It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated,” she added. “But honestly, I don’t care ’cause it doesn’t keep me from doing my s—. And I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention.”
Of course you don’t care. That’s why you’re talking about it. Because you don’t care.
She admits it: “It’s a little annoying having to be so compartmentalized. I go from box to box to box. Like right now, this is so crazy ’cause we’re out at a restaurant … but I’m going out a lot more now. I was starting to get closed off and self-conscious, and I’m trudging forth into the world more often.”
Before Stewart like, totally didn’t give a crap about anything, she cared a lot as a child actress who struggled to get work the same way we struggle to understand why she gets work now.
“I decided a year after not getting any commercials, ‘F— it. I won’t make my mom drive around Los Angeles anymore,’” she lamented.
To be fair, biting your lip and scowling isn’t going to sell that much cereal or toothpaste.
“I also got so nervous for every single audition. I was just dying,” she added. “I had one appointment left and my mom said, ‘Have a little integrity and go to your last one.’ And it was ‘The Safety of Objects.’ If I hadn’t gotten that, I would have been done.”
Excuse us while we look up that casting director. We’ve got some hate mail we need to send. And so does Liberty Ross.
