Kristen explains her year off acting in new interviews

Check out this article and videos from MTV and Extra at Sundance. Kristen tells us more about why she took a year off acting, and how she believes it made her a better actor. And as Melissa knows from viewing Camp X-Ray, she’s right – this is her best work yet! The video is posted at the bottom.

“I had sort of been considering taking time off for a long time, but this was not planned,” Stewart said. “I’m a total workaholic, and if there’s something out there that feels worth it, then I will work through Christmas. It doesn’t matter.”

The reason behind the year off had more to do with not finding the right material for a next project. “It was simply because I didn’t find anything that I really dug,” she said.

Eventually “Camp X-Ray,” the story of an unlikely friendship between a Guantanamo Bay guard and a detainee, came along and ended Stewart’s search for a project.

The time off was valuable, however unplanned it was. Stewart explained that, in her opinion, time away is required to stay sharp as an actor. “It is important to fill the well. As an actor, all you want to do is give as much as can, and obviously, you need experience to draw from,” she said. “Not to say that you’re not having experience while making movies. It’s nice to decompress and recharge. It really is a necessary step to being a good actor.”

“They [tabloid magazines and gossip blogs] cast you as easily identifiable characters they can sell to the masses,” says Stewart. “When people pick up newspapers and read perfect summaries of my life in little concise stories, it’s kind of silly. Can anyone’s life be put into words like that?”
