Kristen Stewart discusses everything from her dating life to moving away from the craziness surrounding “Twilight” in a new interview with Vanity Fair.
Stewart, who stars in the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” movie, has started seeing her ex-girlfriend, model Stella Maxwell, again.
She tells the mag, “I only date people who complement me.”
Stewart explains how working with independent directors like Kelly Reichardt and Olivier Assayas helped her work open up.
She shares, “It gave me a chance to not weigh something down. It was so much bigger than me. My baggage was so minuscule in comparison to what [Reichardt’s and Assayas’s] storylines are, as filmmakers.
“I was finally given a chance to be looked at, not as this thing in this celebrity-obsessed culture that was like, ‘Oh, that’s the girl from “Twilight”.’”
When asked if she feels the impact of those misunderstandings, or if she’s moved on, the actress says: “I think I’ve grown out of this but I used to be really frustrated that because I didn’t leap willingly into being at the centre of a certain amount of attention, that it seemed like I was an asshole.
“I am in no way rebellious. I am in no way contrarian. I just want people to like me.”
