Kristen Stewart: The Good, The Bad, The Beautiful

kristen-stewart-2-300There’s no guilty conscience for Twilight star Kristen Stewart. She takes the good with the bad and turns a cold shoulder to her haters.

Despite her skyrocket to fame, thanks to the Twilight series, her publicized relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson, her affair with director Rupert Sanders, and break up with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart is unable to cope with the spotlight she has been thrust into but she’s okay with this, as well as the scrutiny that comes with it.

In the upcoming March issue of Marie Claire, Stewart says “People are like ‘she can’t handle’-for a lack of a better word-‘the spotlight.’ No actually, I can’t, and this is totally who I am. I don’t force it or turn it into something else or fabricate this personality…so I totally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awkward person.”

Stewart also has a message to her haters: “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made. So judge away.”

K.Stew takes responsibility for all her actions and this is why she has so many fans who love her. Well said, K.Stew!
