Kristen Stewart Gets Why People Hate 'Twilight,' Doesn't Care
"Anybody who wants to talk shit about 'Twilight,' I completely get it, but there's something there that I'm endlessly, and to this day, f—ing proud of."
Patti Smith interviewed Kristen Stewart for Interview magazine, and Stewart talked about how people view the Twilight franchise and her role in the films.
"I'm always asked about what type of things I want to do, and if I make decisions based on my last project," said Stewart. "Say I do a big franchise movie about a vampire that falls in love with a normal girl. It's like, 'Now do you want to show them that you can be a real, serious actor?' It's like, 'Was I not being a real, serious actor?' "
She continued, "I mean, it was a long process, so it's hard to generalize about it as a whole. It wasn't entirely cohesive. We ebbed and flowed. I will definitely acknowledge that. But the intention is so f—ing pure in a weird way."
"Anybody who wants to talk shit about Twilight, I completely get it, but there's something there that I'm endlessly, and to this day, f—ing proud of," said Stewart. "My memory of it felt — still feels — really good."
