Kristen Stewart from the 'Breaking Dawn' set: fame, money, RPattz
First, Stewart is impeccably styled by the magazine, in collaboration with the boys of Proenza Schouler — her blond highlights finally allowing her to tip the scales of total femininity and, dare we say, glamour.
Stewart was intervied on the Baton Rouge set of "Breaking Dawn," talking about the end of "The Twilight Saga" series, her mechanisms for coping with intense fame and, of course, Robert Pattinson. Almost.
"Masses of girls identified with Bella in a really profound way, for want of a better word," Stewart said of her character in the vampire franchise. "The connection that I've seen people have ... I've seen it physically. It's the characters they're flipping for.”
Wethinks Stewart is a bit humble — she commands quite a bit of attention herself.
"There's no way to eloquently put this — I just can't go to the mall. It bothers me that I can't be outside very often. And also to not ever be just 'some girl' again," she said.
Her life isn't without reward, particularly of the financial kind.
"Any time I hear that somebody's really rich, the first question is. 'Do you do anything with it? Or do you, like, chill? You just sit on it?' " she said.
With a reported $25 million "Twilight" payday, Stewart (inspired by her role in the forthcoming "Welcome to the Rileys") is considering helping women affected by the sex trade get back on their feet via a series of halfway houses.
And then there's the added perk of Pattinson — whom Vogue calls her "costar-boyfriend."
Stewart remained tight-lipped about sharing her personal life. "It's not my job," she said.
