Twilight star Kristen Stewart has admitted she had a hard time growing up in the public eye.
The actress, 22, who became world famous at the age of 18 for her role as Twilight heroine Bella Swan, said that she was “overly self-conscious” and that she appeared “weird” to onlookers.
She told the Radio Times that she was uncomfortable with fame even before she made Twilight, with the release of Panic Room when she was 13.
“People would come up to me when I was eating with my family in a restaurant or something, and I would always just curl up into myself in a ridiculous manner,” she said.
“My family would be so embarrassed and it would be like, 'Kristen, what are you doing? Just be nice and say hello.' And I honestly don't know what my problem was.”
