ELLE September Issue: Kristen Stewart Explains Why She Doesn’t Smile + More

Kristen Stewart will brace the September cover of Elle Magazine. Dressed in mostly all things Chanel, the The 24-year-old actress was a mega babe posing in front of produce and peanut butter. This stunning photo shoot took place at a Fields Market in West Hills near Kristen’s house, how cute! Inside the mag KStew opens up about paparazzi, career decisions and more. Here is a sneak peek:

On not being able to please all the people, all the time:

“Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that’s exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They’d be like, ‘now you’re going to give it up, now you’re a sellout.’ like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?”

On when she realized how big Twilight would be:

“The day the movie came out there was a picture of me—in the New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, Oh shit, well, I have to be aware of that.”

Stewart on letting her career evolve naturally:

“Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory—like, as if you’re going to miss out on some wave or momentum—then you’re never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you’re truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You’re turning yourself into a bag of chips.”
