Kristen Touches on Robert, Lindsay, and Twilight in Elle UK

Kristen Stewart is currently in Australia promoting Eclipse, but she recently posed for photos included in July's Elle UK — for behind-the-scenes footage of the cover shoot with Kristen, visit elle.tv! She spoke with the magazine exclusively about her work in the series with Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, and also touched on her excitement about Twilight's success. Kristen also mentioned her good family upbringing as opposed to Lindsay Lohan's, and even touched on her relationship with Robert. She said:

  • On her relationship with Robert: "People always ask me if I'm dating Robert. It's beyond annoying . . . What I say is, that, why would I want anything that's private to become entertainment for other people? This is what I wanted to show you on here. People say that if I just tell them everything I'll be left alone, but God, you think if I tell people they'll leave me alone? They pick up every little scrap, and that's much worse."
  • On Twilight growing into a series: "We never thought it was going to be so huge; we never thought we'd do a second, a third. I'm quite nervous about the third one, actually. It's such a privilege to be able to play a role for so long. Also, it's such a product now; it didn't start out as a product. I read the first book and thought, 'Wow, this is a page turner.' There was something in the script — the energy. It's raw desire, that's what that book is. Which is why it's weird that little kids read it. I'm like, 'What are you thinking about when you're reading it?' I thought that it was going to be a really simple, overly dramatic — which was what was attractive about it — rotten love story. When they cast me it wasn't like, 'Omigod, I got this huge movie'; it was like, 'OK, I got this film.' You have to rev up to it."
  • On her family: "My family are amazing. I had like, the perfect upbringing. It sucks for people like Lindsay, but it's not her fault that she's so off the rails."
  • On The Runaways: "It was f***ing incredible playing Joan. I had so much fun making that movie. Detail-wise it was really nerve-racking to get her. She's a really dynamic person, and she has so many fans and people that know her distinctly. And musically, she has the weirdest voice. It's cool, but it was really hard to sing like her . . . I smoked sooo much making that film. It will do well in big cities — LA, London, New York — but I’m worried that the suburbs won't get it. Kids my age don’t know who Joan Jett is — well, until now."

To read what Kristen has to say about negative press, the phenomenon of Twilight, and her crazed fans, just

.

  • On negative press: "It really bothers me when people write nasty s*** about me and the perception is that I don’t give a f***. It could not be further from the truth . . . Your little persona is made up of all the places that people have seen you and what has been said about you, and usually the places that I am are so overwhelming in the moment and fleeting for me — like one second where I've said something stupid, that's me, forever. What you don't see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction. All you see is an actor or a celebrity lit up by a flash. It's so . . . A lot of the time I can’t handle it. It's f***ed. I never expected that this would be my life."
  • On the Twilight phenomenon: "The Twilight thing is so unique. If I didn’t have that and I was just an actor, my life would be so different. [Twilight] is quite engulfing in its size, but at the same time, it's what you work for."
  • On having crazed fans: "I have one crazy stalker. It's not worth changing my number for, I’m pretty certain that it's some girl who got my number from someone I went to school with who's like, 'I've got Kristen Stewart's number.'"

The full shoot and interview with Kristen is in July's Elle UK, which is on newsstands tomorrow.

Kristen~ you are a unique individual, as many of us are in this world we live in that everyone needs to know your business. You remind me of me how things can get way out of hand when new flies around. I have this boss that constantly lives on drama in work and outside of work, she loves to know every business of yours as for me I do not let her in my life as others do. Keep doing what you are doing Kristen as you inspire me to keep my life private from my boss as to yours Kristen the whole universe. I hope some day to meet you and share my story on how youve inspired me to change my life. =) thx Kristen

Kristen, you are is so honest and open . What are you getting for being honest? Criticism! Kristen , darling few words of advice from a girl: #1 Prep yourself before an interview, like them all, and tell the interviewer some sweet pulp.They are on average not your friends and they general readers of glossy mags can not stand the truth , neither they are seeking one. #2 There is no refuge and privacy in the hotels. Smoke in a broom closet or in the bathroom with the shower and the fan on. Keep on flushing the flushing constantly(plumbing pressure permitted) Or maybe in a fridge. Balconies are bugged ( unless you want to pour water from it) #3 Never shower nude.Or with massed up hair. You never know who is Tweeting it or taking pictures . Nobody would understand your complains. They will call you a spoiled , unappreciative b... #4 Look, I don't know how to say it nice.The general audience, (not all) thinks that they purchased the exclusive right to your private affairs on November 21 2009 with the ticket to see the New Moon. They think it was guaranteed in a small print on the back of the ticket stub. I did not see it, I got my ticket in a rush at the vending machine. I was to busy to look around to see who is looking at my credit card number to notice the permit from you, and the studio to pray on your private life or luck of it. Valid for one year, until June30 2010.Free renewal. #5 Get a new boyfriend. Pay somebody if you must. You will become all time sweetheart , sort of Sandra Bullock .If things go wrong, you will have the shoulder of the whole world to lean on. Instantly you will lose a half of bad press and haters. You will be richly reimbursed for it.Consider this free advice. Why covet something the half of female species are after? No sense and no peace AND YOU KNOW IT . You are smart. He is not good for you. Look (or steal(NOT) who Emily Blunt is engaged to. THAT is a MAN YOU want. Desire peace not clutter in this life. This too shell pass. In the meantime Pray, Eat ..Love in that order.. Your fan

I think it is now all in context---OK certain people in PopSugar USA. When Twilight came along she already doing "the work" it was relatively easy for for her to get roles as she always came highly recommended. SO She was never out looking or waiting for her "big H-wood break" like everyone else in the cast. These are my absolute fave. pics of Kristen, I will def. buy the high glossy issue. And I agree with you #21 !!!

Bella is a crap character anyway. As is Edward. This chick is bigger than Twilight. Much bigger. I don't understand how people can complain about the fakeness of Hollywood, while at the same time hating somebody like Kristen Stewart, who is never anybody but herself...

I think she's great. She doesn't let "Hollywood" get to her. I still don't think I'd be too happy either whenever I'd go to the airport and I'd have dozens of photogs there yelling my name and saying stupid crap either. I wish her well, she's been able to handle her fame very well and she is who she is. Take it or leave it. I can't wait to see where her career will take her AFTER Twilight. Kudos to Kristen! :)
