Kristen Stewart appears on the cover of Backstage magazine’s November 2012 issue. Inside, the actress spoke candidly about interviews, porn and much more.
Although the actress might seem a bit uncomfortable in interviews, she actually likes what they can uncover. As she explains, “Given that I can talk to a hundred or more people at a press junket, at some point there is going to be something brought up that makes me see things I never considered. It’s fascinating to talk to so many people about one of the most important things in your life.”
Stewart also spoke about her “Twilight” character Bella. “Other people try to distance me from her, but not me, I’ve said it a hundred times before: I love Bella. If Edward and Bella switched places, he would be viewed as someone to admire, someone who just lays everything on the line. It takes such a strong person to completely subject yourself to something and give yourself over to something so wholly. It’s an equal relationship; they both give the same amount, so why is she condemned for it? I don’t get it.”
The actress showed her sense of humor when speaking about the book “50 Shades of Grey.” She humorously said, “I’ve skimmed parts of it. When I read the first few pages describing her messy hair, I was like, ‘This is so strange.’ But it’s just so raunchy! I mean, obviously, everyone knows that, but when I see people reading it on planes and stuff, I’m genuinely creeped out. Like, you’re basically just reading porn right now! Get that blanket off your lap!”
