She's put up with a lot of crap for a long time but now Kristen Stewart is taking a stand: she's 'f-king proud' of Twilight, and haters can just go suck it.
K-Stew defended her vamp history with pride in an Interview Mag chat with music legend Patti Smith, saying:
Anybody who wants to talk sh-t about ‘Twilight’ I completely get it, but there’s something there that I’m endlessly, and to this day, f–king proud of. My memory of it felt — still feels — really good.
Good for you, Kristen. Twilight may not be to everyone's tastes, but it's not FOR everyone. What's the point in hating on something you don't like - just go enjoy something you do love, right?
It's refreshing to see a star embrace their past - something Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson has always found problematic. Sure, Kristen's career has developed from her angsty tween Twilight days to serious adult fodder like Camp X-Ray and On the Road - but K-Stew is smart enough to be grateful to the franchise that gave her those opportunities:
People are always comparing sh-t. Like, comparing ‘Twilight’ to things and trying to figure out why I’ve made certain decisions that I’ve made, and I always say every single moment that has led me to this moment has made me who I am.
Every movie that I’ve done, they don’t stand independently from one another because a little bit of me is in every single one of those, and it’s part of my own personal growth.
Personally, I find this interview the most compelling insight into Kristen's feelings we've seen: from a kid coming to terms with fame, being sheltered by Jodie Foster on the set of Panic Room at only ten years old, Kristen is truly growing into an intelligent, powerful and proud young woman.
This weekend might even see Kristen break a record no other American actress ever has before - she's been nominated for a prestigious Cesar award (the equivalent of a French Academy Award) for her role in Clouds of Sils Maria.
