Kristen Stewart Interview – Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk – “I always wanted to write or direct until the Twilight films happened”
Kristen Stewart has made her way to indie heaven and she likes it there. Having largely eschewed big studio productions in favour of art house films, the former Twilight actress confesses how “awesome” it feels to be working outside the mainstream.
Q: Kristen, you seem to be enjoying everything about your life and work more these days?
STEWART: It hasn’t been easy for me. I’ve always been shy and acting was always a refuge for me where I could forget who I was. I always wanted to write or direct until the Twilight films happened and all the responsibilities and expectations that came with that time. I became absurdly, excessively famous at the age of 18 and I felt constantly on the defensive. It was a very uncomfortable time.
