Kristen Stewart Covers 'Vanity Fair' July 2012

Kristen Stewart graces the cover of Vanity Fair‘s July 2012 issue.

Here is what the 22-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman actress had to share with the mag:

On not taking perfect pictures: “I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I get some serious shit about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like sh-t in half my photos, and I don’t give a f–k. What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’ I don’t care about the voracious, starving sh-t eaters who want to turn truth into shit. Not that you can say that in Vanity Fair!”

On her style as a kid: “Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting—you don’t shave your legs!”

Robert Pattinson on the public’s perception of Kristen: “People have decided how they are going to perceive her. No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling.”

    “People have decided how they are going to perceive her. No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling.”

    Still, she’s not smiling anywhere on the video or the scans.

  • couture


    It’s a haute couture photo shoot, she better not be smiling in it.

  • ritz

    STILL looking like a dude or a butch???



  • Authorhouse

    Took me time to read all the comments, but I really enjoyed the article. It proved to be very useful to me and I am sure to all the commenters here! It’s always nice when you.

  • Ioana

    Although I have to admit, I am not a big fan of her and did not like her in Twilight(yes, shoot me), I like that she is trying now and she is changing. Her style on the red carpet got better lately, but she still keeps her personality on. I am starting to like her :)

  • Antonella

    She’s just perfect !
    Love these shoots, Mario did an amazing job :D

  • Nat

    I am a big Kristen’s fan. It used to hurt me so much when I hear people saying, ‘I hate her’, ‘she has one facial expression’, ‘she cannot act’, ‘she is ugly’, ‘she is awkward’. After this vanity fair shoot, I am finally at peace with Kristen’s haters. Like she said once, ‘Hate me for who I am, I don’t care. At least I am not pretending to be someone else. There is something about Kristen that provoke a reaction. You cannot take your eyes of her whether by hate or love. For K, being loved by everyone means that she is doing something wrong. Cause, if she is herself, there is no way everyone going to love her. So, she choose genuine over being accepted. I adore her for this. Those that don’t, she still own your ass cause you are still talking about her, haha. Isn’t that great? So keep on hating! What else you guys can come up with to trash her?

  • Eva

    So gorgeous!

  • aloy

    Why does she insist on sounding like an idiot. I really want to like her but she’s so crass, rough, unclassy, and unsophisticated. There’s no genuinity in her.

  • Gia

    She’s the dumbest celebrity out there. Is there any celebrity who talks so ignorantly like this? Please go away.

  • not again…

    Unsufferable. Please stop the EXPOSURE!!!! Please stop promoting her EVERYDAY JJ.

  • WTF

    Seriously, I thought Snow White released. How long is this promo going to last?

  • clove

    At this point, Kristen Stewart’s PR team is getting crazy aggressive. If they’re attempting an image change, don’t let this chick speak ever again.

  • Karen

    Wow Kristen on another cover?

  • bluez

    I agree that she’s getting really annoying now. Take a break.

  • candy

    What I see is that her parents never taught her any social skills, manners, sophistication, eloquence, class, generosity, or education. This girl is literally the worst ‘actress’, according to public image and talent, of our generation. At least we have Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Carrey Mulligan, Saoirse Ronan so all is good.

  • Disappointement

    “I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph.”

    Umm no. It’s not just people. It’s critics who think you can’t act for sh!t (using your own vocabulary) and have no talent. One of the worst actors in Hollywood but for some reason Hollywood is trying to make this girl happen so bad.



  • rada

    I usually don’t care for her but she looks amazing on that cover.

  • joel392

    LOL I like this girl. She is dumb but so in your face and fierce and hardcore and crazy and so wierd and awkward. Never seen anyone like her. I’m interested in seeing what she does after Twilight.

  • cool

    Hey JJ you forgot to post the quote of her admitting to smoking pot.

  • Kool Aid

    I think she should stick to modeling. She’s pretty and she wouldn’t have to do these interviews and look like in pain on red carpets and events. I don’t think she can act and it save her and us the pain of watching.

  • Paige sims

    Why are you reading about her if you think she’s an idiot? Honestly, these people who critisize her are the ones who waste most of their time obsessing over her… She’s still awesome no matter what!!! Just get over yourselves already.

  • diendre

    Why is she always like I’m honest? Hasn’t she been trying to chance and fit into Hollywood? She’s doing fashion gigs and attending fashion shows and selling her image. I don’t think that’s honestly at all. Also she should really stop badmouthing other celebrities who look happy on red carpets and doing promotion for their movies just because she always looks sullen. It’s their job and they’re happy to do it.

  • Robby

    I see people using the words, PR team, image. That’s the thing. Kristen is not building an IMAGE. She is just telling it like it is. Beautiful photoshoot! Cannot wait to get this VF cover.

  • crazy

    Can her press team stop with all the promotion of this chick? Enough is enough. Even Kim Kardashian isn’t selling herself this much and that’s saying alot

  • dogdays


  • Concerned!!!

    Wow!! At least she’s not a faker & am glad that she doesnt care about haters…. But if you think she’s over exposed, it’s because you haters won’t stop talking about her… SO COME ON PEOPLE, GET A LIFE!!!!!

  • Marieme

    Kristen is a very special girl. She doesn’t give a sh*t about the game of celebrity. To her it has nothing to do with her art or creativity and she’s right! I love this about her. I hope she stays very grounded and real.

  • Kara

    It’s astonishing how many people read articles about Kristen Stewart. Even those who claim to hate her. Now hate is a strong word. What has she done to you people? Oh wait. I know. Fame and fortune from age 17. And has a hot boyfriend who adores her since she was 17. Oh. Here’s another reason to hate her. Her next movie Cali? She is co-producer. At 22. She gets the last laugh.

  • Angela

    I like Kristen but I think she brings it all on herself. I think she should just stop doing print interviews. She’s always fine to me in vid/audio ones, but the ‘ugh’ moments always seems to come out in print. I mean, is she seriously complaining about people thinking she was stupid for smoking a bowl on her front porch in broad daylight on opening day of her gigantic movie geared towards teens?

  • gah

    I wish I had her life. She has everything. Sigh. I love the cover.

  • tom

    For everybody here complaining!!!!!
    if you think see is overexposed, why do you click on every article she is in??? you have really no idea how gossipsites work!!!!
    go to your f*** hatesites and stay there!!!!!!!

  • Sal

    @Marieme: Dude she is loving the celebrity and fame and playing the game. She has a whole press team getting her fashion gigs and fashion covers, escorting to fashion events that have nothing to do with her, and getting her to still promote Snow White. She’s been selling her image for a while now

  • shuel

    NO amount of any designer’s clothes, accesories & make-up could give this bratgirl even some bit of class, grace & poised.

  • Kay

    @crazy: lol oh I love it when people don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s not her team, it’s Universal. Who do you think has been pushing her on all these covers?? Since last year they’ve been pushing her promotion for SWATH, including the W and GQ covers.

  • Uhhh

    @Kay: GQ and W were for Twiligt promotion

  • cyn

    She is perfect, love her. i have already ordered my copy.

  • Sandy

    I love this photoshoot of hers and she looks pretty but she comes across like an azzhole and very mean. I wouldn’t want to meet her in real life but she’s pretty and has an awesome life. I do admire that.

  • irisray

    I usually don’t like Kristen Stewart she was actually tolerable in this video and she looks stunning on the photos! Cant wait until my VF copy arrive! :)

  • Danni

    I think she is a beautiful girl, and I like her as an actress. But I do think Twilight was a mistake for her. She can do better than that. As well for the acting as for the whole drama around it, not for her. Just my opinion, I don’t know her, I don’t know who she really is, but thats just what I think.

  • R

    one more cover? but you stop trying to force us to swallow this crappy product marketing! you can dress her with the most splendid outfits etc., it will never make her a true and charismatic actress! all the money in the world can’t buy the real talent and a real personality!

  • Scarlett

    I have no problem with swearing at all but does she really have to talk like this all the time in her interviews. It always seems so aggressive and try hard. She talks about being a loner and never quite having fit in and all I see is the opposite, a Regina George type, who’s clinging onto every bit of popularity she can muster.

  • RR

    She’s really laying the smack down on the haters. She’s no Emma watson, blowing kisses at the cameras and giving mean looks at girls prettier and more successful than her.

  • emilie

    She is beautiful. LOL at all the idiot posters saying she is dumb.

  • aine


    nobody cares if shesmoked pot you twat.

  • kingkasyski

    Whatever comes out of her mouth,good or bad ,she will always be talked about,thats how interesting she is.People wait everyday when is her pictures gonna come out on every site to talked about what she say,wear or do this time.No other actress in the world that attract that kind of attention,only Kristen.Those other actresses the three Emma,Mia ,Jennifer,Carey and other actresses ,they can say anything and nobody would bother with them,no matter what they say ,wear or do,they are that bland,not that theres anything wrong with that,but they are just not that interesting to be talked about.

  • carey

    She needs to grow up and dump the unfiltered verbal diarrhea. When you give peole too much information,good or bad, honest or not, you paint a target on yourself. Whether you like it or not,anything you say will be used against you. You do not control the game. That is just the way it is in the building up and breaking down of expendable celebrities for profit. Many are waiting to take your place and be willingly used, for a price.

  • whizzer

    Of course she’s way to different from the rest. KStew is tacky, crass rude, sleazy, brat & an idiot. And that really connotes shameful attention, I bet that during her school days, she regularly been lock-up in detention
