Kristen Stewart To Marie Claire: 'Age Has Made Me Smarter & Calmer'

Kristen Stewart To Marie Claire: 'Age Has Made Me Smarter & Calmer'

Kristen Stewart is wrapped in denim as she takes the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s August 2015 issue.

Check out what the 25-year-old American Ultra actress had to share:

On reaching peace with her public image: “I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is fucking awesome.”

On her success at a young age: “Between ages 15 and 20, it was really intense. I was constantly anxious. I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating.”

On apologizing: “Lately, I’ve been doing less of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry.’ And more of the ‘No. Fuck. Jesus.’”

On her past and moving forward: “Speaking very candidly, it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more feral.”

    She’s sooo self-congratulatory, this one. How about a little humility? And no, it has nothing to do with being a woman, it’s about being humble.

    Nice to know you judge on just sound bites from an interview. Judgemental much?

  • fangirling101

    I love this woman!

  • disqus_HXaNxs0Z0q

    I’ve read enough interviews of her to know what her public persona is based on: Her disdain for others in the business and her hard-on for her own progress / genuinity etc. This one looks exactly the same.

  • niagirl

    Lovely as always.

  • VanityInsecurity

    This girl talks so much BS.. every interview it’s something else.

  • Isobel

    Oh to have had the confidence and self awareness at her age, something I could only have dreamed of for myself. Though I think people that choose to dislike her are going to have a field day, the people that like to tear others down. Impressive young lady.

  • Louie T

    If she upsets you that much maybe you should avoid her and her articles. Unless you just like to complain which is not healthy…js

  • Dee

    This could be the most beautiful photoshoot shes ever done hands down!! Although my only complaint is that I know for a fact her eyes are green and i dont appreciate that in the photoshop process they made it become blue. Also this interview is so on point! Its been 3 years since everything you can choose to keep hating on her for stupid things or move on with her. But either way she shouldnt have to give a single fuck.

  • Dee

    Its funny because you actually dont know anything about her if you think shes so “self-congratulatory” when in truth she has always been incredibly self-deprecating. She is known for being constantly hard on herself. Sometimes too much. And judging on these soundbites i feel like its pretty clear that shes saying shes learned from her process and she has chosen to move on and not think about what other people think of her because shes no longer that 20 year old…. Its pretty friggin clear. Women already have a hard time being confident and expressing that confidence and to bring her down for it (for wtvr reason that you may simply just not like her??) What does that make you?

  • Lilly

    Loved her interview! the whole thing is on KSD and she’s awesome , that pic above in the blue lace is just stunning and no words really.

  • Lilly

    Why would you read enough interviews of her in the first place ?

  • Lilly

    simple! dont read anymore of her interviews RME!

  • Isobel

    It’s called growing up, things change, your outlook on life is different with new experiences good or bad. Just like opinions, I find it best don’t like don’t read, turn the page. Try it save yourself some angst. :)

  • brutallyhonest

    The gormless “wonder” strikes again.

  • Isobel

    Yes and apparently she calls herself “brutallyhonest,”
