Kristen Stewart On Avoiding Attention, Possible Acting Hiatus

Posted Sunday December 16, 2012 10:21 AM GMT

Kristen Stewart is one of the biggest superstars on the planet, but she recently admitted to Marie Claire Australia that she still finds the spotlight uncomfortable at times.

In an interview featured in the publication’s January 2013 issue, the 22-year-old star opened up about her struggle with attention and her plan for the future. Hint,hint: It may not include acting.

On her childhood:
"Growing up, my parents weren’t really strict. They let me be who I wanted to be. It’s not like my mum ever sat me down and said, ‘You need to be yourself, Kristen’ or ‘Don’t take any crap, Kristen’, although she did say that to me quite a few times. I thought I was an adult when I was, like 12. I don’t know why. I’ve never been complacent. I wasn’t brought up that way. I’m the youngest in my family and always felt like I had to take care of my brothers. I’ve always been a worrier. I’ve never been that kid who just doesn’t give a crap about anything, even when I was in kindergarten."

On how she struggles with the spotlight:
"I’m particularly weird because I don’t even like being looked at. A lot of actors love it and they love going out and literally doing it as an activity. I hate it."

On her future:
"I’m sort of bored now. I wanna work on something and maybe it doesn’t have to be an acting job. I’ve been hanging out with my dogs and my family and, to be honest with you, I’m still catching up on sleep. I’ve worked for 2 years solid, literally since 'Eclipse'. But I’m itchy now. I wanna do something."
