Kristen Stewart graces the cover of W magazine’s September 2011 issue wearing a Max Mara sweater. Inside, she discusses her attraction to Twilight, watching herself onscreen, and growing up in the world of film.
On Twilight: “I f—— love me a vampire [Laughs]. I was 17 when I read Twilight, and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous – and we girls like to test ourselves.”
On watching herself onscreen: “It’s not like I sit around watching my movies again and again, but I’ve never quite believed actors when they say they don’t watch themselves. I hear them going around the block to make excuses for why they don’t watch their work. It’s bulls—. Sorry, guys – I know you watch your stuff.”
On growing up in the film world: “I’m 10 years old in Panic Room, and that’s a version of myself that’s pretty far away, but it doesn’t feel that far away to me.”
