Being a star comes at a price: Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart was a teenager when she got her big break in 2008 with the "Twilight" movie series. Though the film catapulted her to instant fame, the Hollywood actress says stardom has invaded her private life which can be "Googled" all the time.
"Being a star is huge amount to pay for your freedom. And don't like to share my personal life. Now that I am star so much of my life is Googled," Stewart told IANS in an email interaction from Los Angeles.
But the 22-year-old has been benefited by the stardom as her "fashion sense has improved after being a star".
The "Twilight" series is based on four books written by Stephenie Meyer. With the final instalment of "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" nearing its Nov 23 release date, Stewart is looking forward to a relaxing time.
"I don't have anything in mind. I am happy after a long time. I will have time to relax. I am happy that the movie is finally over," she said, adding she is "very proud" to be "part of the movie"
Before getting famous as Bella, Stewart worked in films like "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas", "Panic Room", "Undertow", "Into the Wild".
But it was the vampire series that gave her global recognition.
She also met her soulmate on the sets of "Twilight" in the form of her co-star Robert Pattinson.
If director Bill Condon has his way, he will continue wielding the megaphone for the vampire tale even if there are no books left to adapt for the big screen.
So is Stewart open to stepping into the shoes of Bella again?
"I am very proud that the I am a part of the movie and it is mine. I think I know both Bella and Edwards very well, I understand them so it would easier for me to step in as Bella. Would love to do it, but may be after some time," she added.
There were reports that Stewart has been roped in to play the lead in the movie adaptation of 1951 William Styron novel "Lie Down in Darkness".
Asked her about this, she said: "It is already on the Internet that I am doing 'Lie Down in Darkness' but it's not happening yet. I love that thing, I would do anything to get that to go, but it's just not yet (rolling). Hopefully, it does, but other than that, nothing," she added.
