Why Is Kristen Stewart Angry All the Time?
By Jo Piazza Posted Jun 3rd 2010 08:00PM
If I could ask Kristen Stewart one question, I can tell you what it wouldn't be -- Is Rob Pattinson a good kisser? And it isn't because I don't want to know. I do (I suspect he may be a bit of a biter). No, the question I want to pose to Ms. Stewart, the earthly incarnation of the fictional Bella Swan, is: Why so serious?
In real life, K-Stew rarely cracks a smile, not on the red carpet, not in interviews and not when cuddling her supposed boyfriend Pattinson.
Now, we know her permanently-pained expression may have something to do with her paranoia about being constantly watched and photographed in public.
In a new Flaunt interview, Stewart rages about the bane social media has become on her existence. "Twitter f**ks me over every day of my life, because people go, 'I'm sitting next to Kristen Stewart right now,' and then they [paparazzi] show up. I see people on their phones ... It's like, 'Get off your f**king phone and get a life!' I get so mad. It's like you're trampling on someone's life without any regard, and it's rampant. Everyone can do it now. Buy a camera and you're paparazzi; get a Twitter account and you're an informant. It's so annoying."
Memo to Kristen: Sure it's annoying to have cameras in your face all the time, but trust us, you'd miss them if they started ignoring you.
Tweet-happy fans aside, what does the starlet really have to pout about? Blockbuster career? Check. Indie street cred? Check? Hot (probably) boyfriend? Check.
Apparently, a lot. The paparazzi pressure is so intense that Kristen compares the picture-taking to being raped, a comment rape crisis groups aren't too pleased about.
"The photos are so ... I feel like I'm looking at someone being raped," she tells British Elle. "A lot of the time I can't handle it."
Last June, Stewart told American Elle that she isn't as miserable as she looks. She's just freaked out by the scrum of cameras. "It's not that I'm miserable, it's just that somebody's yelling at me. It's a physical reaction to the energy that's thrown at you," Stewart said.
Stewart's 'Panic Room' co-star Jodie Foster, a seasoned actress who also found fame at a young age, told Stewart that the young actress could learn a little something from her career path when the two met up at the Oscars (hint hint Kristen, college is good for you). But when asked recently about her advice for the young starlet, Jodie said she thought she was doing just fine.
"She's on the right track. She's a good girl," Foster told People magazine.
Career-wise she may be doing great, but fame comes with a price and unfortunately that price includes cameras and crowds and fans who want to tweet that they saw you, and that's just something Kristen needs to learn to live with because until this 'Twilight' franchise is put to bed, it's not going to end. It's not ideal, but it doesn't suck as bad as you make it seem, Kristen. So smile for the camera -- just once -- and we promise we won't tweet it.
