Kristen Stewart's Wise Words About Being Emotional Will Make You Think Twice Before Holding Back Your Feelings

If you're fan or follower of Kristen Stewart, then you know the actress gets a lot of flak for not smiling. It's unfortunate that that's why the 25-year-old sometimes makes headlines, but like the badass she is, Stewart continuously defends herself in a great manner, all while shutting down the haters. Well, the Twilight actress is seemingly doing that again, but in a more roundabout way. While chatting with The Daily Beast about her new movie Equals, a futuristic love story where emotions have been eradicated, Kristen Stewart talked about emotions and how they should never been seen as a weakness.

She told The Daily Beast,

You just easily close yourself off to certain things because you want to seem like you know it all, or you’re not weak — emotion is often confused as weakness — so when emotions are undeniably physically affecting you, I think it’s a gift. People are so good at turning that off, that we wanted to exemplify that in the most severe and basic sense — and it was really scary.

I agree. Emotions are a "gift" that can affect you in amazing ways. Whether you're crying, laughing, or screaming, emotions are something that should be embraced, as the actress has explained beautifully.

As previously mentioned, Stewart has become the so-called spokeswoman for "Resting B*tch Face," which is an unfortunate term used for those who don't smile all the time. Well, the American Ultra actress has proven time and time again that she does smile and is an emotional individual. I'm pretty sure someone who calls emotions a "gift" shouldn't be labeled someone who is emotionless. Clearly, Stewart has feelings and even thinks expressing oneself is a strength, not a weakness.

It's about time Stewart is no longer seen as an unemotional woman, but rather as a talented, successful, and intelligent actress — who will smile whenever she wants to. The heckling for her never smiling needs to stop at some point, so why not now?
