From Kristen Stewart, Vogue UK, October 2012
“There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. It’s not necessarily a rebellious thing, it’s just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then…”
Kristen always fully submerges herself into her roles. And not just into the roles but into the time periods, situations and lives of the characters she is playing. I got the sense when I read this quote that Kristen really wanted to understand and fully experience the time of The Beats and equally longs for that type of free simplicity in her own life. I’m not sure that she’ll ever get it but I’m glad she was able to experience it in a role, at least.
