Kristen Stewart: You won't get to know her through interviews
"I'm 19, and, being a public figure, I'm supposed to present myself in a certain way, but it's hard and you're never going to be able to tell people who you are through the media," she tells the Daily Telegraph.
"It’s much easier for a guy to say what he wants and not to be cute and funny all the time, but, if you’re a strong sort of woman, you’re just, for lack of a better word, a bitch."
Though she's previously been accused of such, Stewart isn't short on gratitude for the fame-making years she's spent as the star of "The Twilight Saga."
"I've been really lucky for a long time, and 'I’ve worked with amazing people, and I just hope that that continues. I don't know what I'd do if I didn’t have this," she said.
While Stewart preps for the beatnik big-screen adaptation of "On the Road," she's hasn't tired of vampire-loving teen icon Bella Swan.
"It’s nice to switch to movies ... between 'Twilights,' but I’m excited to go and do the next couple of years of Bella’s life.”
