Kristen Stewart covers Elle magazine, talks career, fame, and her elusive smile

Paula David – Fourth Estate Cooperative Reporter

Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Kristen Stewart is on Elle magazine’s September cover, and in the interview, she talked about her vague career plans, Twilight fame, and why she does not smile so much.

“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on,” she said. “As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”

About her fame, which insanely surged upon the release of the vampire flick “Twilight” in 2008, the New York Post published a photo of her and her ex-boyfriend sitting on her front porch and “smoking a pipe.” “I was like, Oh sh*t, well, I have to be aware of that,” the 24-year-old actress said.

Aside from her Twilight fame, Stewart is also known for not smiling in most candid photos. She explained, “Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”

Meanwhile, Stewart, who is currently the face of Chanel, has gotten back to the big screen with “Sils Maria,” which premiered at Cannes in May, with Juliet Binoche and Chloe Grace Moretz. The film is scheduled for release in theaters this December.
