Kristen Stewart Talks Aging, Success And Apologizing In Marie Claire August Issue


Kristen Stewart is the latest star to grace the cover of Marie Claire, and girl looks amazing. 

Inside the August 2015 issue, the 25-year-old gets candid about everything from aging to finding success -- and finding 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," she told the mag. 


The star, who's been in the public eye since she was just a kid, explained the difficulties she faced as a teen in the industry.

“Between ages 15 and 20, it was really intense. I was constantly anxious. I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating.”

Stewart's anxiety in the public eye is unsurprising, as she was often criticized during the early days of her fame -- she looked too sad on the red carpet, she was too "awkward" in interviews -- but she's done living in the conventional realm of what it means to be an actress. And she's definitely done with apologizing for doing things her way. 

"Lately, I’ve been doing less of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry,’" she explained. "And more of the ‘No. Fuck. Jesus.'"

That unapologetic attitude has carried on to her personal appearance, too. More specifically, her ever-changing hair. 

"My hair was such a crutch. I looked quote unquote 'sexy' no matter what. I could hide behind it. As soon as I didn't have all that hair, I had to let my face hang out. I felt more confident than I had in a really long time. And it felt really good. Maybe to most people, long hair is prettier. But then what? Is your main goal in life to be desired? That is boring as fuck."
