An orange-haired Kristen Stewart covers Vanity Fair France, and in the new interview, the 24-year-old Twilight star gets candid about her acting philosophies. According to Kristen, her performance all hedges on if she's "vibing" with her co-star or not.
"I'm not the type of actor who can perform without wearing a mirror on my face. Everyone knows that you're better with other actors who are really present, who you are having the same experience with, but I am made or broken on it," she explains. "If I'm working with someone who I'm not vibing with, or who I have to fake anything with, then it's sad for me and it's bad acting."
And though she of course doesn't name names, she does reveal that she's definitely been in this type of "uncomfortable" situation before.
"I haven't been totally screwed, but I've had to force things. I've had to be in front of people and be like, 'Oh, thank God we only have a few scenes together,'" she says. "I never know until a few days, or a few scenes, in. At first you think maybe we just haven't fallen into our rhythm. But as soon as you are exhausted by trying to find it, you give up and just sort of fall into default mode -- it's just sh*tty. It's just not fun. And it's not as good. When I look at those scenes I go, ‘ugh.’ I don't like watching them." MORE after the cut ( Read more...Collapse )
