Very interesting interview! I love how honest she is.
"Usually I come in and sit down at roundtables in America and they look at me like 'What is wrong with you?!' Just because I don't fit...NOBODY fits into the frame that typical Hollywood young actresses do, but they TRY to. They try to be this thing...try to memorize answers and make everybody happy. That's like so horrifying and scary to me. So when you're NOT that, you get criticized for it. You get criticized for being honest and criticized for being nervous. So that's kind of annoying. I do a whole day of press and then I get calls from publicity people that are like, 'you might want to be a little bit more bubbly'. And I'm like, 'no.....no!' People get very upset in the States. It's weird. Fans of the book especially. They don't understand me. Which is fine. I guess it doesn't really matter who I am, I just hope that they like the movie."
"What makes me nervous is talking about the movie and talking to people and hoping that I don't really piss people off. Because that's what I tend to do when I do interviews. I really don't understand it. So that's what makes me quite nervous. And then people get pissed off BECAUSE I'm nervous, so it's really a no-win situation."
"I don't know if they don't see how excited I am? They think that I'm unappreciative. I can only do a film if, for whatever reason, I feel so compelled by it that the thought of not doing it and the thought of doing it at the same time makes me want to throw up. I don't know...they think that I'm very blasé about it. Which is CRAZY! I just don't get it. I think that they'd rather see me go up and be like 'EDWARD CULLEN IS SO HOT!' That's not what the story is about. I'm not talking about everybody. This is really gonna...oh god. Anytime I say anything it's gonna be the wrong thing to say."
I know this song is pretty overdone but I wanted to put my own spin on it :) Seriously though, every single comment and suggestion makes me smile, so don't hesitate to tell me what you think! WARNING: If you haven't seen the movie yet, beware, this contains footage directly from it. Very very clear footage XD

Ship: Can you guess?
If you have the time, please watch the video in HD, it looks SO much better. Thanks loves :)
Kristen discusses her fangirl moment over Natalie Portman, staying down to earth, her need for acting, fans mixing her up with Bella, New Moon, etc.
"I really love her [Natalie Portman]. I really, really admire her. She walked into a hotel once that I was in and this doesn't happen usually, I literally was just like 'oh my god!' She was just so casual. She just walked in and said hi to somebody. She knew that everybody would recognize her or whatever so she just very discreetly came in and said hi and then tipped out. And I was just like, 'oh my god! like I can't even...GOD!' Like I can't even believe that she just comes in like it's nothing. She doesn't realize how people...yeah, she's really REALLY amazing. I really love her."
"The normal thing to do for most actors who just want to get money and fame is to capitalize on this and jump on the next big film that came around. Most big commercial studio movies are just frames with no painting in the middle. It's like a good idea but there's nothing in it. I'm not gonna do that. I really don't care."
"I think I'm down to earth. I don't really know. It's a job. This is such a job. And this part of it is so hard. Like most people just wallow in this and just love it. Every opportunity to talk about themselves, they just LOVE IT. And it makes me like...the feeling of impending doom is so overwhelming. I'm pretty family-oriented. I don't live in Hollywood. LA is very spread out. It's not like a city. I live way outside, I live in the Valley with my family still. I just go away sometimes to make movies and then sometimes I go away to talk about them to people. It's really not that big of a deal."
"Acting is an outlet. It's something to sort of throw yourself at. I mean, if I didn't have that, I would have something else that gave me the same feeling. I write a little bit, but not for anybody else. I have meager little scratchings. I take pictures. Really, acting sort of caters to everything else in my life. It's just analyzing things from a different perspective. And I would do that if I didn't have a medium for it. I would just do it in other ways. If acting is acting it's lying. And that's not something I'm ever able to do. It's just a way of thinking about life, and that's something you do every day. So to say if anybody's a better actor than anybody else, that's like saying they're better at being human. Or better at living."
"I'm not very good at this. It's easier actually when you leave the United States. Because people ask you questions and then they want to hear your answers. But in the States it's sort of like, 'so what is it like kissing a vampire?' Well, come on man, I don't know. I've never done it. I'm too serious. Like I can't... I'm very logical. I don't have the mind that jokes around. I just start offending people when I start joking and I don't want to do that."
