Kristen Stewart thanks her lucky stars every day. Even though the Twilight actress has got the paparazzi hounding her every move — especially now that they are trying oh-so hard to capture her and rumored boyfriend Robert Pattinson canoodling — she doesn’t dare grumble. “I love when people complain about how horrible it is to be famous,” says the 19-year-old, calling from her suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, where she’s promoting her new drama The Yellow Handkerchief. “On the outside, it looks like my life is hell. But I get to work with great people who are amazing and then go hang out with them. My life is very good.”

How did the role in The Yellow Handkerchief come about for you?
For me, it was a real typical situation. I read the script and it made me sick, just sick, to think that I might not be able to play the part. Then I met the director, auditioned and actually got the part.

You seem shocked. You’re a big star now!
Oh man, you never know. But when something becomes solid, it’s like you’ve been given this immense responsibility. This is a character I love.

Tell us about playing Martine, a troubled Southern teen who goes on a road trip with two complete strangers.
I saw this girl to be overly tender and an emotional person. She is doing everything she can to hide that. She is running from something and is disappointed by guys and the people around her.

Like who?
She doesn’t have the greatest relationship with her dad. But she remains a strong-minded, stubborn person.

Is it true that Jodie Foster, who you worked with years ago in Panic Room, recommended you for this role?
I just learned that today. Our producer has known her for years. Thank you, Jodie!

  1. Sorry, Kristen, I don’t think your life looks like hell. After only a few years of work in a profession you love, you’ll have enough cash to take care of your great-grandchildren. Plus, you get to kiss Robert Pattinson. Your life looks pretty good to me!

  2. It’s nice to knows she doesn’t hate her life since she always looks like she does! And at least she seems pretty humble, she just needs to practice her smiling.

  3. One of the only interviews I’ve seen where she isn’t insolent. Usually she is the one complaining about being famous, but she doesn’t do that here. She’s gracious and likable. I suspect she is probably a very likable person, but she over thinks her interviews (I think she over thinks her acting as well – her first movies like “Panic Room” showcased her natural talent and she went down hill from there in terms of her acting – I think she over acts now and if she just toned it down, her natural talent would shine through) She has a beautiful smile – wish she would smile more.

  4. Rob Pattinson told Details magazine, during an interview, “I hate vaginas.” So any woman over here may as well stop, unless she just loves fine-looking men, regardless of orientation.
