Kristen Stewart isn't smiling for paparazzi photos anytime soon and she has a pretty great reason why.
In her latest spread and profile with Elle, the Adventureland actress opened up about the burden of fame and why she refuses to smile for the flashing lights!
Let's be honest here, KStew has a pretty great smile, but don't expect her to flash those pearly whites for the cameramen who follow her around all day!
"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?"
That perfectly makes sense, but everyone is going to criticize you for something. It's inevitable in this business!
Which brings us to the next topic of fame!
The 24-year-old actress wasn't expecting her career to explode, but when it did, she had to start watching everything she was doing and act a teeny bit more responsibly.
She recalls the time when the Twilight film came into the stratosphere and people started to take notice!
"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."
It does suck that she can't have a carefree lifestyle like she did before, but it definitely comes with the territory and career.
Kristen, it's a burden now, but at least you get to do something you love, right?
