En vostfr par nous-mêmes:



Interview:


It feels very good to see Kristen Stewart again. I’ve missed her. We’re meeting at the little mews house where I’m living for the summer, about an hour outside London. Kristen seems relaxed and happy; she looks fantastic–not unusual for her–and better rested than the last time I saw her, at the end of the interminable two-movie shoot that dominated our lives for the past year. You may know me as the author of the Twilight series, but I’m also a producer of the movies, so Kristen and I have gotten to know each other very well while filming during the past three years. Now the series is close to being over, with Breaking Dawn in theaters this month and Breaking Dawn Part 2 coming out next fall.

Today she’s in her usual jeans and a T-shirt, Chuck Taylors and a ponytail. Without any makeup, her skin is noticeably luminous. Her hair is dark, glossy and very long. I comment on the length, mentally counting the months since I’ve seen her; it’s been less than four. Kristen laughs: The hair is not all hers. It’s in place for her next movie, Snow White and the Huntsman.

We talk and talk, and as we speak, Kristen curls her legs under her, never entirely at rest, leaning forward when she’s enthusiastic. She’s animated and passionate about any project she believes in, yet she’s wary of how she might be perceived. I hope that in this interview something is captured of the Kristen I know, the real girl rather than the movie star.

Stephenie Meyer: So we’ve finally split up after spending the last several years working together. And yet the first movie I go to do [Austenland, starring Kurt Russell], you follow me to the same studio. Are you stalking me?

Kristen Stewart: [Laughs] Yes, I really am. I’m trying to get into your next films.

SM: I remember when we were shooting the wedding scene in Breaking Dawn–I was losing it because we were so sleep-deprived at that point.

KS: Yeah, the last night… I was exhausted, and it’s funny, Rob [Pattinson] was actually way more energetic than I was at the end of it.

SM: How emotional were you filming the final scenes?

KS: Even thinking about it now kind of freaks me out. On the final night of filming, I was literally pulling out my hair and crying and having to walk away for a second because my voice wasn’t working anymore.

SM: It was a big moment. Being there, you could feel that … And I have to say, you embrace Bella so much.  

KS: I like Bella so much. In order to play a part like that, you have to believe in every crazy decision that she makes.

SM: What kind of characters do you gravitate toward?

KS: It is such a gut instinct. I’ve yet to play anybody who I don’t really love.

SM: I think you once wanted to direct. Do you still want to?

KS: Yeah, really, really badly. Me and Dakota [Fanning] were having this conversation the other day actually, and she also wants to do it really bad. It will happen, I think. I also really enjoy being an actor, so I’m fine. I mean, I’m not finished …  

SM: Do you prefer working with male or female directors?

KS: I feel that everyone’s so different that it’s hard to say, “Girls are like this,” because even the women I’ve worked with are all very different. But female directors are usually pretty remarkable because they have gone that extra step of saying, “No, I’m gonna direct the film. No, there’s no one else.”  

SM: I know that publicity’s not your favorite thing. Have you ever been misquoted?

KS: Yes, I have. It bugs me! False impressions are the worst! It definitely makes me watch my words. Even right now, I’m going, OK, how do you talk about this? And you’ve got to have a filter.

SM: What are you reading right now?

KS: My Snow White director just gave me a book on Joan of Arc. I’m mostly reading work things. And I’ve been foxing all of my English-dialect stuff!

SM: It must be hard to concentrate on your performance when you’re so worried about the sound of your voice.

KS: It’s weird. Especially considering that I’ve recently had so much experience speaking he way that I speak. Because this how Bella talks. [Laughs.] God, imagine if I’d had to change my voice.

SM: Can you imagine how miserable you would have been? Now I feel kind of guilty, because that’s exactly what we made Rob do.

KS: Yeah, actually, that’s true. Completely. [Laughs.]

SM: How long did you have off after Breaking Dawn? KS: It doesn’t feel like I’ve had any time off. I should have just gone home and relaxed.

SM: It took a while before I could kind of step back and say, OK, it’s over. [LAughs.] It’s a long time to do one thing!

KS: And the experience of watching is always so strange. I watched this one with Taylor [Lautner] for the first time. It was really fun.

SM: Who can not like Taylor?

KS: No! I mean, definitely! And it’s fun to watch it with him because we actually sit and watch it. Me and Taylor are actual Twilight fans, so we can sit there and be totally into it! Whereas I sit there with Rob… he likes it, but he has just such a different energy.

SM: Oh, Rob and Taylor have completely different energy! Watching it with Taylor, you feel afraid that you’ll get ice down the back of your neck or a grape in your face.  

KS: Totally.  

SM: You always have to be on your guard with him.

KS: I’ve always just loved Jacob and Bella so much. Taylor is great in this one. Not to keep saying how great the movie is, but …

SM: Yeah, we threw a lot at you in this one! You have to die, you give birth screaming and–no big deal–get married for the first time.

KS: I know! Jesus!

SM: What did you do for your 21st birthday?

KS: I turned 21 the same weekend as our Breaking Dawn wrap party. So it was lucky because I had this blowout party with everyone, but I didn’t have to feel like the birthday girl. I do feel older, I guess. It’s amazing to realize that a lot of the insecurities I had when I was younger have pretty much disappeared.  

SM: Your style is pretty basic. How would you describe it?

KS: I have a uniform of sorts–I will be comfortable in a certain hood of mine no matter what mood I am in. And there’s nothing better than a new stack of white V-neck. For me, “changing” is either a new T-shirt. And I need pockets, ’cause if I carried a bag, I’d lose it purposely.

SM: You keep you romantic relationships pretty close to the vest. Do you have any relationship advice for Glamour readers?

KS: Hmm…good relationship advice for me tends to be being honest and knowing yourself. Don’t be an asshole. That’s my advice. Don’t be mean. Don’t take shit. Don’t settle.

Stephenie Meyer: Nous nous sommes finalement séparés après avoir passé les dernières années à travailler ensemble. Et pourtant, le premier film que je fais [Austenland, avec Kurt Russell], tu me suis même au studio. Est-ce que tu me traques?

Kristen Stewart: [Rires] Oui, vraiment. J'essaie d'avoir un rôle dans tes prochaines films.

SM: Je me souviens quand nous tournions la scène du mariage dans Breaking Dawn - J'ai failli perdre la tête parce que on manquait de sommeil à ce moment là.

KS: Oui, la dernière nuit... J'étais épuisé, et c'est drôle, Rob [Pattinson] était plus énergique que je l'étais à la fin du film.

SM: Comment tu étais émotionnellement lors du tournage des scènes finales?

KS: Encore y penser maintenant me fait un peu peur. Sur la dernière nuit de tournage, je tirais littéralement mes cheveux et pleurais tellement que j'ai du m'éloigner une seconde parce que ma voix ne fonctionnait plus.

SM: Ce fut un grand moment. Être là, on pouvait sentir que ... Et je dois dire, tu interprètes tellement Bella.

KS: J'aime tellement Bella. Pour jouer un rôle comme ça, vous devez croire en toutes les folles décisions qu'elle prend.

SM: Vers quel genre de personnages gravites-tu?

KS: C'est vraiment à l'instinct. Je n'ai pas encore jouer quelqu'un que je n'aimais pas.

SM: Je crois que tu avais voulu réaliser une fois. Tu le veux toujours?

KS: Oui, vraiment, vraiment sérieusement. Moi et Dakota [Fanning] avons eu cette conversation l'autre jour en réalité, et elle veut aussi vraiment beaucoup le faire. Ça va arriver, je pense. J'aime aussi beaucoup être une actrice, donc je vais bien. Je veux dire, je ne suis pas finie...

SM: Tu préfères travailler avec des réalisateurs masculins ou féminins?

KS: Je pense que tout le monde est si différent qu'il est difficile de dire, "Les filles sont comme ça", parce que même les femmes avec qui j'ai travaillé sont toutes très différentes. Mais les réalisatrices sont généralement assez remarquables parce qu'elles ont ce cran supplémentaire de dire: "Non, je vais réalisé le film. Non, il n'y a personne d'autre qui le peut."

SM: Je sais que la presse n'est pas ton truc préféré. Tu as déjà été mal cité? (Propos déformés)

KS: Oui. Ça m'énerve! Les fausses impressions sont les pires! Ça me fait vraiment surveiller mes paroles. Même maintenant, je le fais, 'OK, comment parler de ça?' Et tu dois avoir un filtre.

SM: Que lis-tu en ce moment?

KS: Mon réalisateur dans Blanche Neige m'a donné un livre sur Jeanne d'Arc. Je lis surtout des choses en rapport avec le travail. Et j'ai du travailler tout mon dialecte anglais!

SM: Ça doit être difficile de te concentrer sur tes performances lorsque tu es tellement préoccupés par le son de ta voix.

KS: C'est bizarre. D'autant plus que j'ai récemment eu tellement d'expérience où je devais parler à ma façon. Parce que c'est comme ça que Bella parle. [Rires.] Mon dieu, imagine si j'avais eu à changer ma voix.

SM: Tu peux imaginer combien tu serais mal? Maintenant je me sens un peu coupable, parce que c'est exactement ce que Rob doit faire.

KS: Oui, effectivement, c'est vrai. Complètement. [Rires.]

SM: Combien de temps de pause tu as eu pour Breaking Dawn?

KS: Je n'ai pas eu l'impression d'avoir du temps libre. J'aurais simplement du rentré à la maison et me détendre.

SM: Il a fallu un certain temps avant que je puisse regarder en arrière et dire, OK, c'est fini. [Rires.] C'est beaucoup de temps pour une seule chose!

KS: Et l'expérience de le regarder est toujours aussi étrange. J'ai regardé celui là avec Taylor [Lautner] pour la première fois. C'était vraiment amusant.

SM: Qui ne peut pas aimer Taylor?

KS: Non! Je veux dire, c'est sûr! Et c'est amusant de le regarder avec lui parce que nous nous sommes vraiment assis et l'avons regardés. Taylor et moi sommes de vrais de Twilight, alors nous pouvions nous asseoir et être totalement dedans! Alors que si je suis assise là avec Rob ... il aime, mais il apporte une énergie tellement différente.

SM: Oh, Rob et Taylor ont une énergie totalement différente! Le regarder avec Taylor, tu as peur d'avoir de la glace à l'arrière de ton cou ou un grain de raisin dans ton visage.

KS: Totalement.

SM: Tu dois toujours être sur tes gardes avec lui.

KS: J'ai toujours tellement adoré Jacob et Bella. Taylor est génial dans celui-ci. Je n'arrête pas de dire à quel point le film est génial, mais...

SM: Oui, nous t'en donnons beaucoup dans celui-ci! Tu dois mourir, donner naissance en hurlant et- pas une grosse affaire- te marier pour la première fois.

KS: Je sais! Jésus!

SM: Que faisais-tu pour ton 21ème anniversaire?

KS: J'ai eu 21 ans le même week-end que notre fête de fin de tournage pour Breaking Dawn. Alors j'ai été chanceuse parce que j'ai eu une fête avec tout le monde, mais je n'ai pas eu à me sentir comme la fille qui fête son anniversaire. Je me sens plus vielle, je pense. C'est incroyable de réaliser que beaucoup d'insécurités que j'ai eu quand j'étais plus jeune, ont à peu près disparu.

SM: Ton style est assez basique. Comment le décrirai-tu?

KS: J'ai un uniforme de toutes sortes - Je serai à l'aise dans un de mes sweat qu'importe l'humeur dans laquelle je suis. Et il n'y a rien de mieux qu'une nouvelle pile de t-shirt blanc col V. Pour moi, "me changer" revient à soit mettre un nouveau t-shirt... soit un vieux t-shirt. Et j'ai besoin de poches, parce que si je portais un sac, je le perdre délibérément.

SM: Tu gardes tes relations amoureuses. As-tu des conseils sur les relations pour les lectrices de Glamour?

KS: Hmm ... une bonne relation pour moi tend à être honnête et avoir une connaissance de soi. Ne soyez pas stupide. C'est mon conseil. Ne soyez pas méchante. Ne prenez pas de merde. Ne te compromets jamais.
