Kristen Stewart wants you to know that she does, in fact, “give a f—.”
The press-shy Stewart told Salon that criticism of her seemingly flat affect stems from the fact that “I’ve never tactfully maneuvered through anything I felt passionately about – my job being really, really high on that list.”
When called “kind of a hero” for her “give-no-f–ks attitude,” the former Twilight actress, 24, countered, “No one gives a f— like me. No one gives more of a f— than me. It’s just ironic to me.”
She continued, “I find myself saying things that other people say, where I’m like, ‘Okay, you’re lying.’ But I say the same thing, and I wonder if people think I’m lying when I say, ‘Oh, we were just a big family on set!’ I hate that stuff.”
However, Stewart did make it pretty clear that there’s one thing she doesn’t care about at all – how other people define her.
“People always ask if I chose the projects I’ve chosen because I’m trying to redefine myself or people’s perception of me,” she said. “Uh, no. In a word: ‘Nah.’ ”
While she has lately favored smaller, independent films – including costarring with Golden Globe winner Julianne Moore in Still Alice – she says: “I haven’t planned, I haven’t thought about my trajectory or how to design my career in a way that I can get what I want. Luckily I’ve gotten what I wanted naturally – I’m such a lucky bastard.”
