Kristen Stewart looks lovely on the cover of Marie Claire Australia’s January 2013 issue.
Inside, the actress spoke about fame. “I’m particularly weird because I don’t even like being looked at. A lot of actors love it and they love going out and literally doing it as an activity. I hate it.”
Stewart also reflected on her perception of her childhood. “Growing up, my parents weren’t really strict. They let me be who I wanted to be. It’s not like my mum ever sat me down and said, ‘You need to be yourself, Kristen’ or ‘Don’t take any crap, Kristen,’ although she did say that to me quite a few times. I thought I was an adult when I was, like 12. I don’t know why. I’ve never been complacent. I wasn’t brought up that way. I’m the youngest in my family and always felt like I had to take care of my brothers. I’ve always been a worrier. I’ve never been that kid who just doesn’t give a crap about anything, even when I was in kindergarten.”
As for her future, “I’m sort of bored now. I wanna work on something and maybe it doesn’t have to be an acting job. I’ve been hanging out with my dogs and my family and, to be honest with you, I’m still catching up on sleep. I’ve worked for 2 years solid, literally since ‘Eclipse’. But I’m itchy now. I wanna do something.”
