Cheese! Kristen Stewart is over people thinking she has resting bitch face and is always unhappy. The Twilight alum told Juliette Lewis, who conducted the interview in Elle UK’s 2015 September issue that she’s not the bitchy girl everyone thinks she is.

“The whole smiling thing is weird because I actually smile a lot,” the Clouds of Sils Maria actress, 25, said. “I literally want to be like, ‘Dude, you would think I was cool if you got to know me.’”

But don’t expect to get to know her via Instagram or any other social media app. “The idea of addressing such a massive group…If I don’t know who I’m talking to, it doesn’t make any f—king sense to me,” she revealed. (Stewart doesn’t have a Twitter or Facebook page.)

And although Stewart is adamant that she turns that frown upside down, she’s obviously had her down moments.

“[Patti Smith] was like, ‘I just want you to know that your people care about you, that we’re here for you, and I’m your people.’ And we kind of stayed in contact,” Stewart recalled of meeting the famous musician when she was “in a f—ked up place.” “Then I was in New York again and she walked up to me at another afterparty — it had been a long time since we’d talked — and she said, ‘It’s a full moon tonight and I heard that you were in town, so I came out to find you and here you are!’ And I was like, ‘You’ve got to stop saying the coolest things ever!’”
