Kristen's interview in the CR Fashion Book - Issue 6

For me, the most attractive thing in a person is drive – genuine impulse expressed for the sake of it, not for the sake of it, not for perception. I think that’s hot. Whenever I see someone doing something and it looks like they just couldn't not do it and they just need to get it out. They need to create. It’s a compulsion, and I share that. These people are cool and mysterious, a little dark and a little elegant. That drive comes from somewhere. It comes from desire, it comes from curiosity, and you can’t fake it.

It’s indescribable. It’s just a burn. You can sense it pretty instantly, this innate curiosity, because not everyone has it. That’s what I’m fucking attracted to. If you meet someone who fuels you, or say you’re in a room and someone walks in and they've got that vibration, people want it. The vibrating person is always the most attractive.

That attraction is fucking magnetic. You feel yourself wanting something from someone and you’re like, Wow, I don’t even know you but I want something from you. I feel you can give something. It’s not a selfish thing, it’s happening with you and it’s mutual. And it’s almost always instantaneous. It’s not hard for me to figure out who I like or who my friends are. I trust my energy meter, but I’m also not afraid to let people in who might hurt me.

I do not approach my life tactfully at all. I’m incredibly impulsive, and I am definitely an intense weirdo. I love living and I love people. They trip me out and I want to know more about them all the time. That isn’t something I can turn on and off.

I personalise absolutely everything, and most people I like to be around are the same way. You definitely have to be somewhat of a self-involved person to create anything. Most creative people are pretty aware they are a little self-obsessed, but in order to fucking have faith in yourself and make confident work, you have to be a little crazy and believe in yourself enough to just do it.

When I choose a character it’s the same burning impulse, almost a sociopathic urge. This feeling of, Oh my God why do I feel this way? Who do I feel like I could die for this? It has to be feel very high-stakes, like, If I don’t commit to this and if I’m not fully there for this person, then I could have the capability of deleting them. Playing a character is a huge responsibility to a group of people who are putting their hearts and souls and blood into something. And ultimately it’s doing someone, somewhere justice.

That pressure drives me, and I’m a bit of an extremist. Films sometimes only shoot for 20 days, and I have the stamina to fully allow myself to become absolutely obsesses with something for that amount of time. I can take it. I can really beat myself up and I like feeling completely out of control. I love the idea of it – just feeling subject to something, like this world exists separate from me. I love putting myself through hell and really experiencing that pain. That’s when I feel the most fulfilled, when at the end I feel like I've just slaughtered myself. And it’s so worth it. It’s like lightening in a bottle. If you don’t catch that one second then it’s gone. The weird thing is when it ends, it’s this very surreal dropped-on-your-ass-in-a-different-world feeling. It’s over, it’s completely over.

But every girl I've played is still very much in me. Yes, obviously there is a separation. We are not these people who we portray. At the same time, every role represents a stage of my life that I feel personally connected to. Oddly my character’s memories are my own.


On her type: “For me, the most attractive thing in a person is drive – genuine, impulse expressed for the sake of it, not for perception. I think that’s hot.”

On who she’s attracted to: “It’s not hard for me to figure out who I like or who my friends are. I trust my energy meter, but I’m also not afraid to let me people in who might hurt me.”

On taking on a difficult role: “I love putting myself trough hell and really experiencing that pain. That’s when I feel the most fulfilled, when at the end I feel like I've slaughtered myself. And it’s so worth it.”

Kristen has been cast in the as yet untitled Kelly Reichardt project

Kristen Stewart has joined Michelle Williams and Laura Dern in the hot indie drama known as the Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project. Written and directed by Reichardt, the film is a series of vignettes that revolve around the lives of people in small-town Montana.

Stewart will play a young lawyer from Boise who takes a teaching job several hours from her house. Despite her nerves about teaching, she’s determined to prove to herself that she can do it. Soon after taking the job, Beth develops a close friendship with Jamie, a local woman who’s auditing her class. James Le Gros and Jared Harris (Mad Men) also have been cast in the ensemble project, which is being produced by Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani. It will shoot on location in Big Sky country.

More details have also emerged about the characters and the story line. Dern is set as Laura Wells, a lawyer in Helena who keeps going back into a bad relationship with Ryan Lewis (Le Gros), a married man who couldn’t care less for his wife and daughter. Williams portrays Ryan’s wife, Gina Lewis, who works in advertising with her philandering husband. Finally, Harris is a former construction worker who was injured in a work-related accident and starts plotting a hostage attempt.

Stewart (Twilight, Still Alice, Snow White And The Huntsman) is repped by Gersh Agency and McKuin, Frankel, Whitehead LLP. Reichardt’s most recent credit is Night Moves, which she directed and co-wrote with Jon Raymond. Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning starred in that 2013 film. She is repped by UTA.
