Kristen Stewart For Marie Claire US March 2014

Kristen Stewart graces the cover of the Marie Claire US March 2014 issue – which was shot by Tesh – wearing an Emilio Pucci colourful beaded frock.

The ‘Twilight’ star wears Saint Laurent, Balmain, Louis Vuitton and Giambattista Valli in her editorial, opening up to the magazine about love and her relationships, almost quitting acting aged 9, drugs, and being judged.

Here are some extracts. You can read more over at MarieClaire.com.

On almost quitting acting at age 9: “I auditioned for a year before I got anything, and I told my mom I was kind of over it. I was like, ‘I don’t want to make you drive around L.A. anymore. If it’s not happening, it’s not worth it.’ They thought I looked like a boy. I didn’t think it was going to pan out, and then literally that day, I got The Safety of Objects, which was my first movie.”

On directing aspirations: “The idea of making a movie scares me because I want it to be amazing. If people watch it, I don’t want, ‘Oh, how nice, her first little directorial debut.’ I want it to be, ‘Boom!’”

On her M.O.: “I’m kind of, like, an extremist. I really don’t want to be working unless I’m bleeding it. And if I’m not working, then don’t ever try to make a plan with me.”

On being judged as a peril of fame: “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made, so judge away.”

On being less inhibited: “I was always like, ‘If you put too many walls up, you can’t see. You’re limiting your life so drastically and in a sad way.’ So I always used to say, ‘I’m not putting up any walls, I’m trying to break them down,’ and it seemed kind of defensive—it was definitely coming from that place. But now I’m actually maintaining like I don’t live in a fortress.”

On drugs: “I’m such a control freak. I’m glad I grew up in this era because I think if I grew up in my parents’ age of drugs and discovery and crazy shit, I don’t think I would do drugs well.”

On falling in love: “You don’t know who you will fall in love with. You just don’t. You don’t control it. Some people have certain things, like, ‘That’s what I’m going for,’ and I have a subjective version of that. I don’t pressure myself… If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them – but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I’m much too young to even have an answer for that question.”

On her haters: “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made. So judge away.”
