Kristen Stewart was photographed by Inez & Vinoodh for the cover of V Magazine's Spring Preview 2013 issue, out on Jan. 10. In an interview with the magazine, Kristen spoke about her film On the Road, which opened in limited release late last month. In particular, Kristen opened up about Marylou, the wild teen bride she portrays in On the Road, and the difficulties and responsibilities that come with playing a character on screen. Here are highlights from Kristen Stewart in V magazine:
- On her On the Road character, Marylou: "Until you really get to know the woman behind the character, it's difficult to connect the dots. I'm a contemporary, sensitive, normal girl, and it's difficult to try and empathize with someone who seems to have a lack of empathy. She seems a bit callous in the book."
- On her new attitude: "I have realized that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but it's a difficult thing. So I've gotten quite comfortable with just being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing: it's not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them."
- On her responsibility as an actress: "It's a pretty f**king odd thing to want to pretend to be another person and then have a lot of other people who watch you do that. You have this experience of reading something, and if you don't bring it to life, you're basically deleting it. The responsibility is amazing."
