Kristen Stewart struck a pose for sizzling shoot, opening up on how she leads a normal life

Kristen Stewart may be one of Hollywood's hottest young stars, with Robert Pattinson as a boyfriend, a string of big roles under her belt, and one of 2012's biggest scandals to her name, but she's revealed she's just a 'normal' girl at heart.


Striking a pose for sizzling V Magazine shoot, Kristen spoke about her role in new flick On the Road, and how she feels abour her 15-year-old character Mary-Lou.

'Until you really get to know the woman behind the character, it’s difficult to connect the dots,' she said.

'I’m a contemporary, sensitive, normal girl, and it’s difficult to try and empathize with someone who seems to have a lack of empathy.

'She seems a bit callous in the book. She’s literally the farthest… I have never encountered a person that had their nerves so fucking close to the surface.'

After a rollercoaster year, which saw her caught up in the Robert Pattinson/Rupert Sanders cheating scandal, Kristen also told how she has 'gotten quite comfortable with being unafraid'.

'I have realized that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but it's a difficult thing,' she said.

'You can't see over people, can't see in and you also can't see out. So I have gotten quite comfortable with being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing, it's not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them

Revealing she feels a responsibility as an actress, she added: 'It’s a pretty f****** odd thing to want to pretend to be another person,' she told V magazine.

'And then have a lot of other people who watch you do that. You have this experience of reading something, and if you don’t bring it to life, you’re basically deleting it.

'Every day of shooting you’re depriving the world of having that. The responsibility is amazing.'
