Kristen Stewart: Fame Is “Like Being Raped”


Kristen Stewart says she sometimes can't handle being famous — and that it's almost like being "raped."

"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," she tells the new issue of Britain's Elle. "The photos are so… I feel like I'm looking at someone being raped.

"A lot of the time I can’t handle it," she added. "It’s f***ed. I never expected that this would be my life."

She said 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."

She also said it's "annoying" when she's relentlessly asked if she and costar Robert Pattinson are an item.

Said Stewart, 20: "What I say is, that, why would I want anything that's private to become entertainment for other people? … 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."
