Kristen Stewart Fails At Interview Challenge

These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?

It's been quite a year for Kristen Stewart. Leaving aside her tumultuous off-screen existence, she put a cap on one blockbuster franchise (in all, the five "Twilight" movies made more than $1.3 billion at the box office), kicked off another ("Snow White and the Huntsman" took in a healthy $155 million) and renewed her indie-movie cred card with a daring performance in Walter Salles' "On the Road," which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and opens in limited release on December 21. HuffPost recently talked to Stewart about "On the Road" -- and persuaded her to answer some #nofilter questions while we had her attention.

What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Hmm. I take these things very seriously. Whenever anyone's like, "Oh, we're just gonna do a fun quick-fire-question thing." My guiltiest pleasure? Shit. God. Dude, what's yours?

Oh, God, I probably wouldn't want to say, now that I think about it.

Have you ever stolen anything?
Actually, no. I stole a pack of gum when I was younger and literally turned right around and gave it back. And he was such an asshole to me. I was like, "I should have just walked. I am being a good person." And he literally chastised me for 15 minutes. I was like, "Why did I even give this back to him?"

If failure weren't an option, what's one thing you would do?
Oh, god. God. That is too -- dude, these are not quick-fire questions. They're heavy questions.

What shows are on your DVR?
I actually don't watch TV.

Do you ever text in the movie theater?
Um, I don't typically sit in a movie theater.

If you could ask Kim Kardashian one question, what would it be?
Um, wow. I have no idea.

What a stimulating interview

I think you can have a pretty healthy perspective on life without watching a lot of TV or sitting in movie theaters

She's an actor. No wonder she always slamming other people. The only performances she knows are her own.

She didn't say she doesn't watch films, just that she doesn't typically sit in theaters. I'm sure she gets screeners of any movie she wants to see.

Not when you're an actor.

Christina Aguilera and her musical bubble come to mind here, as well. If you do something you need to expose yourself to plenty of it. I am a teacher. Therefore I expose myself to lots of educational stuff I can do my job better.

This 100%. You said exactly what I wanted to say but better.

It just strikes me as incredibly pompous for an actress to just keep her nose up in the air and not watch TV or movies. Who does she really think she is? If she exposed herself to other performances, maybe she'd be a better actress.

I think she's just full of shit.
