Kristen Stewart never expects praise. Known for her Twilight role (Bella Swan) and the face of Chanel and Balenciaga fashion brands, it was at the age of nine when the twenty for year old began her career and she says she has always been,
self-deprecating because she’s so used to receiving a ”kick in the a**” from other people.
”I’ve taken so much s**t 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 a**.”
She also says it was okay if she never won awards,
for her work and her dreams have always involved her career progression.
She told The Hollywood Reporter:
”I’ve never, ever been like, ‘One day, I’m gonna win an Oscar.’ Truly, my ‘one day’ was always, ‘I’m gonna be a director! One day, I’m gonna direct movies!”’
Stewart also said she was filled with joy,
to be the first American actress to ever pick up a César Award—France’s Oscars equivalent—for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria.
”Oh, man, it blew my head off, to be honest. I couldn’t believe that I got nominated and then, obviously I really, really couldn’t believe that they gave it to me, because those people rigidly dole out praise, especially to Americans. It felt really good.”
She jokingly added:
”I would prefer a French Oscar [to an American Oscar].”
Another thing Stewart says she has no worries to get older,
because she won’t make herself ”crazy” by constantly looking back.
”Actresses go crazy when they feel like they want to hold on to what used to be, or whatever. I’m so satisfied and happy and absolutely looking forward to what’s to come… [But] talk to me when I’m 30 and then I’ll be like, ‘Ahhhhh!’ As time goes on, who knows what my ambitions and objectives will be? Who knows how I’m gonna feel about what I do and what that’s gonna turn into? I have a feeling that I’m gonna do this for a while—at least, being involved in this industry.”
