Kristen Stewart interviews
In conjuction with the release of her latest indie, Adventureland, Kristen Stewart did a few interviews.
USA Today interviewed her about her life, and also some things you didn't know about her:
"You're so connected to people and they all know how to get to you, and everyone knows who you are, so explicitly. They think they know you. It's like, 'You really think you know me? I don't know me! How do you know I'm not different around someone else?'"
Another thing that makes her stop in mid-sentence: teenage girls. A group enters the restaurant, and Stewart abruptly shuts up until they pass. She apologizes, a little embarrassed, and whispers: "If those type of girls saw me talking about Twilight, you don't understand. If I said 'Jacob' too loud, they'd be like —" She makes her eyes wide and sticks her hands out like claws.
"More than three girls of that certain age — run away," she says, laughing as the threat settles in a distant part of the patio. "Girls are scary. Large groups of girls scare the (crap) out of me." She says Pattinson gets it worse. "They covet him. I think half of them are so jealous that they hate me," she jokes.

The Star (US) comments that Kristen is still indie at heart:
Never mind that Stewart, who turns 19 on Thursday, has been working in movies for more than a decade. Twilight eclipsed the rest of her work. Yet with offers rolling in – and Twilight sequels to be shot – Stewart is staying true to her indie-movie roots.
Despite what she calls a year that's been "really insane and absolutely psychotic," the actress is making the promotional rounds on behalf of a pair of no-budget indies she shot immediately before entering the Twilight zone.
Mary Stuart Masterson's The Cake Eaters, which was given a limited theatrical run before being released on DVD, features one of Stewart's finest performances as a high schooler suffering from a fatal nerve disorder.
The slightly more upbeat Adventureland, which opened yesterday and is directed by Superbad helmer Greg Mottola, stars Stewart as Em, a Pittsburgh twentysomething who is trying to shore up her finances by working at a run-down amusement park.
The Province talked about New Moon:
Her favourite part of New Moon is the beginning. "Everything is fine. Edward is there. They're chilling. They're together. Everyone's happy. But there's this eerie feeling like he's gonna go. Has anyone broken up with you, and you know that it's coming? It's weeks before and you're like, 'I'm a nutcase, but I swear to God something is wrong.' And then, however many weeks go by, and it happens. It's horrible. It's the worst."
