Kristen Stewart took some amazing pictures for Flaunt magazine, donning dresses made of webbing and hard metallics and lounging in front a trailer, bringing to mind our first meeting her as Tracy in Into The Wild. There is something sort of guarded about the poses, which is no surprise since Kristen says she’s not terribly comfortable with photo shoots. It sounds like they still 1,000,000,000,000 times better than the paparazzi she endures every day.
Talking to Britian’s Elle magazine Kristen reflects on her public persona:
“Your little persona is made up of all the places that people have seen you and what has been said about you, and usually the places that I am are so overwhelming in the moment and fleeting for me — like on second where I’ve said something stupid, that’s me, forever,” she said. But there is more going with her when you see her walking down the street.
“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. It’s so… The photos are so… I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped…A lot of the time I can’t handle it…It’s f**ked. I never expected that this would be my life.”
Yikes, maybe the magazine should give her that giant sharp metal bracelet from the shoot to walk around with.
On a lighter note, she talks vaguely about what one would guess is Robert Pattinson.
“It’s so weird, that you have to be worried about people seeing things,” she says. “You want to be excited about something, normal people can be excited about their lives.”
