Twilight Saga fame Kristen Stewart has been quite different from the norm in both her personality as well as her performances. By different, it means the unique ability to see life and work from an untraditional perspective. Sure, she loves her work, but the showbiz world is not always digestible.
Most celebrities would certainly root for fame and glory and follow the footsteps of A-lister stars like Angelina Jolie but not Stewart. The actor has a different path, a different way of life to avoid the bizarre horror she finds in the name of paparazzi, as she even calls it dangerous.
Kristen Stewart Doesn’t Want To Be Angelina Jolie
Kristen Stewart made her fame with the $3.346 billion franchise Twilight but she never wanted to follow anyone’s footsteps or lifestyle to penetrate the showbiz world and be a shining star. Rather, she preferred a sense of quietness. Stewart, since the dawn of her popularity, never wanted to be like Angelina Jolie. The Gia and Eternals star lived a life of extreme popularity, she has been a center of discussion among fans for years, but all those things are not quite attractive to the Spencer star.
“I don’t want to be Angelina Jolie. Not that Angelina Jolie isn’t the most talented, beautiful, successful, amazing, admirable person who does good things for the world, but I don’t want to be a movie star like that.” (via Evening Standard)
Certainly, the 33-year-old has the deepest respect for Jolie and admires her immense talents and humanitarian works but she would never attempt to fill her shows. “I don’t think there’s anything about being a celebrity that’s desirable,” Stewart continued.
But she understands, “though, that everybody’s going to know who you are and what you look like, but why be so obsessive? People are in love with you and they don’t even know you. It can be isolating,” she added. Perhaps, it was a good thing on Stewart’s side as it helped the actor to create her own identity without being in anyone’s shadow.
Kristen Stewart Once Hit Chris Hemsworth In The Face
Rupert Sanders’ Snow White and the Huntsman starring Stewart and Chris Hemsworth in the lead created a buzz after it was revealed that Stewart punched the MCU star right in the face. While filming the adventure fantasy, Stewart directed a punch towards Hemsworth.
“I have to say for anyone who’s ever been in that situation where, as a girl, you think it’s not going to do anything. It fucking does something. He was standing over me and I just went “boom!” I spun him around. I punched him right out of his close-up and then I started crying. I felt horrible,” she revealed in an episode of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno (via Today).
For Hemsworth, it was cool. “I was more upset she didn’t continue on through the take,” the Thor: Love and Thunder actor told GQ.
“She kind of hit me and then immediately went, ‘Oh, my God, I’m so sorry,’” he continued. “I was like, ‘That would’ve been the perfect, most truthful take that we had.’ I think she was more upset than I was.”
Certainly, for Stewart, she had a fulfilling experience as an actor filming Snow White and the Huntsman, but the buzz that her punch created will be remembered for long.
