16 Times Kristen Stewart Used the F-Word to Get Her Point Across
Kristen Stewart is nothing if not candid. The 26-year-old actress got her start in Hollywood over a decade ago, and though she can sometimes be guarded, Kristen is also known to call on the help of a choice four-letter word in interviews. Yes, Kristen is a pretty big fan of "f*ck," and who could blame her? Not only does it add the perfect amount of zing to any otherwise-ordinary quote, but it really makes her statements memorable. Keep reading for 16 times Kristen got extra unfiltered and used the F-word to get her point across.
On Growing Up
"I'm really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That's a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is f*cking awesome."
On Nobody Knowing Anything
"By the way, nobody knows. Nobody knows what the f*ck is going on. You're going to die. You're going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you're going to grow old with. But you're going to lay next to them in the middle of the night deeply curious about them and who they are, because nobody f*cking knows anything."
On How She Views Herself
"If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the f*cking ambiguity of this life and I love it."
On Being Unapologetic
"Lately, I've been doing less of the 'I'm sooooo sorry.' And more of the 'No. F*ck. Jesus.'"
On Cutting Her Hair Supershort
"Maybe to most people long hair is prettier. But then what? Is your main goal in life to be desired? That is boring as f*ck."
On Doing Things That Scare Her
"Dude, I have no idea what I'm doing, and that's kind of how I love it. I had no idea Twilight was going to be huge. Certain movies I've done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it's fun not having so much control. It's kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle — it's fun, but it's scary as f*ck. If it's not scary, you kind of have to step back and go, 'You're probably making this decision because it's right on paper.' But unless you get that irking fear, it's not right."
On Her 2013 Split From Robert Pattinson
"It was incredibly painful. Ugh, f*cking kill me."
On the Lessons She's Learned From Being an Actor
"I wonder how I would be and how I would be shaped without these projects and without these insane f*cking learning experiences in such isolated and accelerated periods of time. It's definitely cool that people like some of the projects I've been doing lately. That is awesome, even though I have not always been completely comfortable being shoved into the brightest, most blinding spotlight you can imagine."
On Writing Poetry
"I like being able to hit on something, like, 'There it is.' I don't want to sound so f*cking utterly pretentious. . . . But after I write something, I go, 'Holy f*ck, that's crazy.' It's the same thing with acting: if I do a good scene, I'm always like, 'Whoa, that's really dope.'"
On Being Creative and Believing in Yourself
"You definitely have to be somewhat of a self-involved person to create anything. Most creative people are pretty aware they are a little self-obsessed, but in order to f*cking have faith in yourself and make confident work, you have to be a little crazy and believe in yourself enough to just do it."
On Hating Social Media
"Twitter f*cks me over every day of my life. Because people go, 'I'm sitting next to Kristen Stewart right now,' and then [the paparazzi] show up." She went on: "I see people on their phones, and I just want to take these cookies and throw them. It's like 'Get off your f*cking phone, and get a life!' I get so mad. It's like you're trampling on someone's life without any regard. And it's rampant. Everyone can do it now. Buy a camera, and you're paparazzi; get a Twitter account, and you're an informant. It's so annoying."
On People Who Think She's a Bad Actress
"Honestly, I don't care. It's fine. I'm really happy doing what I'm doing. I'm sure there are a ton of people out there who would hate my movies even if they saw all those, just as I'm sure there are people out there who are obsessed with Twilight and say, 'I watched the series, and she completely let me down, and then I watched every one of her other movies, and I f*cking hate her!' And that's cool! Just don't watch my movies."
On Her Perceived "Gives No F*cks" Attitude
"I'm like, actually, no one gives a f*ck like me. No one gives more of a f*ck than me. It's just ironic to me. I'm always like, really?"
On What She's Most Attracted to in a Person
"For me, the most attractive thing in a person is drive — genuine impulse expressed for the sake of it, not for perception. It's a compulsion, and I share that. It's indescribable. It's just a burn. You can sense it pretty instantly, this innate curiosity, because not everyone has it. That's what I'm f*cking attracted to."
On Her Responsibility as an Actress
"It's a pretty f*cking 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."
On Her Twilight Days
"Anybody who wants to talk sh*t about Twilight, I completely get it, but there's something there that I'm endlessly, and to this day, f*cking proud of. My memory of it felt — still feels — really good."
