Twilight’s Kristen Stewart: Playing Bella Is “Annoying”



Kristen Stewart is no fan of the fame that comes with starring in Twilight.

"I'd like to take more walks after work, instead of having to come back to my hotel room and not leave. So it can be boring," The actress, 19, tells the 40th Anniversary issue of Interview magazine.

"I've been working as an actress since I was very young, and I know a lot of people who are actors who don't have to deal with having a persona," Stewart — who got her big break starring in Panic Room at age 9 —  goes on. "The whole meaning of the word is that it's made up, and it's like I didn't even get to make up my own. It can be annoying."

"Some nights, I think, 'You know what? I don't care. I'm just going to do what I want to do.' Then the next day I think, 'Ugh. Now everyone thinks I'm going out to get the attention.' But it's like, no, I actually, for a second, thought that maybe I could be like a normal person," she says.

But Stewart doesn't think she'll always be so famous.

"I have a really strong feeling that this is going to go away, that this is the most intense it's going to get — and could get — and that it's fleeting," she says. "So in a few years, I will hopefully become more like the people I want to become like."

If her whole career involved filming the vampire flicks, she laments that she "would have been a psychopath by the end of a four-year stint on the Twilight saga without anything like that to change it up."

Even though she's over the stardom, her parents couldn't be more excited, Stewart says.

"My dad is ridiculous. He's, like, embarrassingly proud. He really goes overboard, like walking around with magazines and sh–. When this comes out, if this is mentioned in the magazine, he's going to walk around the set and be like, 'Hey, look at what my kid said,'" she says.
