Kristen Stewart on the Media: ‘I’ve Taken So Much Sh—‘
Kristen Stewart has never been one to mince words. She recently expressed her frustration over the way tabloids try to take any story they can about her and twist it into something negative. Kristen admits she's had to put up with a frustrating amount of rumors and false stories over the years. The good thing, she says, is that by now she's used to it and doesn't expect anything else.
Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, Kristen said, "I've taken so much s--- that I'm just like, 'I'm not the winner!' I'm not gonna be let down when I don't get the pat on the back. I'm totally used to the kick in the ass."
Rather than fight the way the news industry works -- which often includes unflattering stories about her told by the press -- she's learned to accept it. She said, "It has taken serious adjusting time. There's just nothing that I can really do about that. If you think about the source of it all, which is really the big, big, big green monster of cash, there's just no way that that's stopping."
She went on, "It's a new industry—celebrity news is a whole new form of entertainment—and it's a huge, booming, f---ing money-making industry, so why would it stop?" But the media hounding isn't enough to stop her from acting. She said, "I love what I do and it's worth protecting. Hopefully, one day people's priorities will shift a little bit…unfortunately, onto somebody else."
Kristen recently became the first American actress to win a Cesar Award for her role in the film Cloud of Sils Maria.
