On reaching peace with her public image:
“I’m really proud that I am able to move forward
and not fall into every mental crater.
That’s a new thing for me.
Age has made me smarter and calmer.
And it is fucking awesome.”
On apologizing: “Lately, I’ve been doing less
of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry.’
And more of the ‘No. Fuck. Jesus.’”
On her sexuality: “Google me, I’m not hiding.
If you feel like you really want to define yourself,
and you have the ability to articulate those parameters
and that in itself defines you, then do it.
But I am an actress, man.
I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it.
I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like,
‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job.
Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation
or that I have some perspective or opinion
that other people should be receiving…I don’t.
I’m just a kid making movies.”
On Twilight: “Anybody who wants to talk shit about Twilight,
I completely get it, but there’s something there that I’m endlessly,
and to this day, fucking proud of.
My memory of it felt—still feels—really good.
People are always comparing Twilight to things
and trying to figure out why I’ve made certain decisions that I’ve made,
and I always say every single moment that has led me to this moment
has made me who I am.”
"The public kind of burned me at the stake.
But that's OK, I can take it.
I'm not dead."
"Someone who just commands the lens simply by standing in front of it."
Kristen commands attention...
and she doesn't even have to try.
You have to look.
You want to know.
Even the people out there who claim to
not care about her
can't look away.
I adore her.
Is she perfect?
Does she make mistakes?
Do I like or agree with
everything she says and does?
Of course not.
She's flawed just like every one else.
And its all part of her charm.
Perfection is not only impossible...
It's boring as fuck.
I don't judge Kristen
for living her life
the way she wants to live it.
Why would I?
If I have learned anything these past 7+ years
its to step back and not obsess
over things which I have no control over.
I want her to be happy.
I think she is.
I want her career to flourish.
I know it is.
I hope she is having a wonderful birthday...
Full of love and laughter
and that all her wishes...
are coming true.
Happy Birthday to you.
This post is brought to you by:
|She's got these big green eyes and they're as wide as the moon...|
For being born today.
You have made the last 7 years...
And dare I say...
Yes I can.
Until next time.
Bye for now.
