And while she was it, she let photographers snap a lot of high-fashion photos of her too.
Kristen answered many questions we're sure her fans are dying to read, so here are our favorites.
I'd love to wear very feminine clothes, but then, in the everyday life, when I'm in Los Angeles, at home, I'd rather be comfortable. Whereas, when I'm away, like in this case, I pack all kinds of clothes, for the evening as well, because I think that maybe I'll get a chance to wear them.
On how she treats acting:
I'm not one of those actresses that maniacally prepare themselves for a role. On set, I do whatever I need to do, but day after the day. If I have to improvise, I improvise, if I have to learn my lines by heart, I do it. There are certain screenplays which are so beautiful, that they only need to be repeated as they are, without any changes. I live in the moment.
On upcoming projects:
Right now, there's nothing certain. I'll take the chance to go back home, to my family, and enjoy some free time. This, right now, it's my ideal holiday. I traveled around the world for my job, often without even realizing where I was. I like traveling, but right now, I need to recharge my batteries.
In the issue, Kristen also talks about the career in detail, what she wishes for, and how she stays in control of her weight.
