When "Twilight" first hit theaters in 2008, Kristen Stewart had to deal with serious fame for the first time. This involved a lot of awkward TV interviews where the actress clearly looked like she'd rather be any place but in the interviewee chair. In the years-- and sequels -- since then, she's learned to embrace the "Twilight" juggernaut, and appreciate the uniqueness of her situation. Bella Swan, she says, is "a character who is embedded in so many people's psyches at this point. It's starting to enter my head a lot more than it used to because it's at the end and it's come such a long way. I just want the fans of the book to be happy," she laughs. "I don't necessarily care about anyone else."
As for the future, Stewart is definitely aiming for the road less traveled. There'll be no popcorn blockbusters if she can help it. "I choose things that are so overly ambitious, and if I can't do stuff like that, I don't want to be doing this," she says of her career.
And though Stewart has come to terms with her fame, she is still mourning the loss of her anonymity. "There's no way to eloquently put this," she says. "I just can't go to the mall. It bothers me that I can't be outside very often. And also to not ever be just 'some girl' again. Just being some chick at some place, that's gone."
If there's anyone Stewart can share the loss with, it's one of "Twilight's" other breakout stars, Robert Pattinson. Interestingly, Vogue calls RPattz her "costar-boyfriend" in its feature, though the actress refuses to confirm or deny a relationship. "It's not my job," she firmly tells the magazine. But still, if they have it in print, we can believe it, right?
