Kristen is once again paid to stand and pose with her mouth open, but this time, ELLE decided to have a little fun with her.
Kristen Stewart covers the September 2014 issue of ELLE magazine photographed by Michael Thompson. Blouse and necklaces by Chanel. Bra by Wolford.
On letting her career evolve naturally: “Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”
On not being able to please all the people, all the time: “Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”
On when she realized how big Twilight would be: “The day the movie came out there was a picture of me—in the New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, Oh shit, well, I have to be aware of that.”
She’s, like, a slave to fashion. And stuff. And then she’s all eighties aerobics instructor. Who likes cowl necks. And then she’s just … what? Some chick who gets really exhausted by produce and needs to sit down? We guess. And then it’s People of Walmart time!
We wonder at what point she started to realize ELLE was fucking with her.
Lest you think we’re criticizing, we actually think this is a lot of fun. Since she’s got such a smirky attitude about all things fashion, might as well dress her up to look a little ridiculous in it.
