Kristen Stewart is an American actress. She is best known for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga: Twilight, New Moon, & Eclipse. Recently starred in The Runaways. Kristen Stewart is currently dating costar Robert Pattinson.
When asked about her own experience, given her successful acting career, the “Snow White and the Huntsman” star blurted out, “Fame is the worst thing in the world. Especially if it's pointless. When people say, ‘I want to be famous’ - why? You don't do anything.”
She’s a woman of many talents, and Kristen Stewart showed up on the “Conan” show on Wednesday night (February 8) to plug her new movie “Clouds of Sils Maria.”
However, talk quickly turned to the “Twilight Saga: New Moon” actress’ recent cameo in Jenny Lewis’ music video for “Just One of the Guys” in which Stewart dressed as a boy and hammed it up for the camera.
The “Twilight” star admitted to having a negative feeling about the celebrity news game, though she understood why it’s such a successful aspect of our lives- “Why aren't we [as a society] mentioning the fact that it's so crazy that there are so many people that are so full of it? And why are we consuming them en masse? If you think about the source of it all, which is really the big, big, big green monster of cash, there's just no way that that's stopping. It's a new industry - celebrity news is a whole new form of entertainment - and it's a huge, booming, f*cking money-making industry, so why would it stop?”
She’s grown a ton as an actress since her Bella Swan days and Kristen Stewart had a blast playing a Hollywood assistant in “Clouds of Sils Maria.”
The “Adventureland” star told the Associated Press that she had to stifle her laughter when her character was written to read tabloid stories in the soon-to-be-released flick- “I had to seriously harness the glee that was exploding across my face when I was saying some of those lines. I don’t think that’s what the movie is fully about. It’s not a commentary about the insane nature of the media in the States, especially. But no one knows about that more than me.”
