Happy Monday, ladies and gentleman!

Kristen Stewart was spotted out and about in NYC on Sunday, Aug. 9, rocking her signature casual-cool street style and looking as happy as a person can be.

Indeed, your eyes do not deceive you! Twilight's former leading lady, 25, who is renowned for her stoic appearances on the red carpet, exited The Greenwich Hotel flashing her pearly whites, giving the thumbs-up to the camera, and gamely striking a series of bouncy poses.

Stewart, who modeled a semi-sheer white tee, skinny jeans, and sneaks, clearly wasn't kidding about being quite the grinner. "The whole smiling thing is weird because I actually smile a lot," the actress, who covers ELLE UK's September issue, told the mag. "I literally want to be like, 'Dude, you would think I was cool if you got to know me.'"

Well, if these pics embody the true K-Stew, we kind of want to be her BFF! To get you through the long week, we're taking you out with one last amazing moment—the American Ultra actress hilariously posing in the street like a true gangster. Enjoy, everyone!
