Kristen: “I F***ing Love Acting”

Twilight Star Shares Her Joy At Getting Paid To Pretend To Be Other People...

Kristen Stewart has used an interview with Elle magazine to express her delight that she is a professional actor.

"I f***ing love everything about [acting]. I love movies, I love what they do. I am just so fuelled by it like nothing else in my life,” the ‘Twilight’ star told Elle.

"[But] I'm really boring; things I would want to read about have not happened to me. But that's the reason you read those books and watch those movies.

"This job is just a crazy, different step forward from being able to watch a movie. It's like I'm truly walking into someone else's shoes, I get to live there. And I want to do that because I'm pretty sure I have something to learn each time."

Since she shot to fame as Bella Swan in the Twilight saga, K-Stew has also starred as a fairytale character in her new movie ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’ and as a beatnik girl in the forthcoming film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's ‘On The Road’.

Kristen also said she didn't mind being held up as a role model for young women, but insisted that it didn't affect the way she lived her life.

"I don't apply it to the choices I make. I feel like a role model is not necessarily somebody you want to imitate, just someone you admire. I look at characters I play sometimes and think, 'F***, I would like to be like that'.

"It makes sense to me why other people don't just look at that person, they look at me. Anyone who happens to choose to look up to me, it's like, 'But I'm literally you. I'm looking up to the characters you're admiring me for choosing'."
