With only days remaining until her post-cheating scandal red carpet debut at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of "On The Road," Kristen Stewart added onto her "difficult" promotional efforts by gracing the cover of the October 2012 issue of British Vogue.
The 22-year-old "Twilight Saga" actress slipped into a Gucci Fall 2012 frock for the Mario Testino shot front page while dishing to the UK magazine about everything from going blonde to the difficulty she has when it comes to "playing it cool."
A few of the highlights from Miss Stewart's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to British Vogue!
On going blonde for her sexy new role in 'On The Road':
“I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!”
On how she struggles to play it cool:
"I know if you haven’t thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition. But, dude, honestly? I can’t. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, 'OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?' I wouldn’t know who that person would be! It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t."
On her empathy for the Beat generation:
"There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardised version. It’s not necessarily a rebellious thing, it’s just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then. It’s the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do. People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive."
