Kristen Stewart has admitted that she seemed like an “a**shole” in the early days of her career.
During her time working on the Twilight film trio, the actress was often reported to have a sullen and withdrawn demeanour.
In Vanity Fair‘s September issue, the actress opened up, revealing that her desire to deflect attention away from herself made her come across that way.
“I think I’ve grown out of this, but I used to be really frustrated that because I didn’t leap willingly into being at the center of a certain amount of attention, that it seemed like I was an a**hole,” she said.
“I am in no way rebellious. I am in no way contrarian.”
“I just want people to like me,” she finished.
Touching on her work with independant filmakers, Kristen revealed that she enjoyed the departure from a huge movie franchises.
“I was finally given a chance to be looked at, not as this thing in this celebrity-obsessed culture that was like, ‘Oh, that’s the girl from Twilight.’”
