Kristen Stewart Pre-Cheating Scandal: I Don’t Like “Fake” People
by Rebecca Macatee
Kristen Stewart doesn’t bother with the phony Hollywood, sweet persona many actresses take on.
“I don’t like people like that,” the 22-year-old actress told Entertainment Weekly in a mid-July interview, just before news broke that she cheated on Robert Pattinson with married director Rupert Sanders.
People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem like they are on and interesting and engaged. I care way more about the people standing in the room,” she said. “I don’t want anyone leaving and saying, ‘God, that girl is so fake.'”
“People tell me to make it easier on myself and to play a character when I go out on carpets and stuff,” she added. “But you know what? I’d rather be me.”
Being herself—whether it’s her candid interviews or the heartbreaking public apology she made to Pattinson—is a huge part of Stewart’s appeal.
Just keep being you, K.Stew.
