Kristen Stewart graces the cover of Elle magazine’s June 2012 issue wearing a Ralph Lauren Collection dress. Inside, Kristen discusses her upbringing and what it’s like to see herself on screen.
On her upbringing: “You can learn so much from bad things. I feel boring. I feel like, Why is everything so easy for me? I can’t wait for something crazy to f—ing happen to me. Just life. I want someone to f— me over! Do you know what I mean?”
On what it’s like to see herself on screen: “Laurence Olivier was asked, ‘Actors, what’s the impulse? Why?’ And he was just like, ‘Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me …’ That was his answer. But at the same time it’s like, ‘Nooo, don’t look at me. Look at some version that I’m going to present to you. Let me control it.’”
