Say what you will about Kristen Stewart, but she really knows how to be herself even under a firestorm of pressure from people demanding that she behave otherwise. She's been in the acting business since she was 9 years old, so she's had people scrutinizing and critiquing her every move for the past 16 years. Yet, somehow, she still manages to be utterly genuine. Listen to Stewart's best quotes from interviews and appearances make it clear that she has a good head on her shoulders, and who wouldn't want to emulate her grounded advice? Who wouldn't want to apply that advice to their own life whenever possible?
Obviously, there's a chance she's pulling the wool over my eyes and is actually a bubbly cheerleader type who only wants us to think she freezes up in interviews and is most comfortable in bedhead and her Chuck Taylors, but I think she's the real deal. No one would be that awkward by choice, and I think it's honestly very brave of Stewart to share her true self with us without polishing it up to blend in more with the Hollywood crowd.
In fact, whatever you think of Stewart, I don't know how you can deny that we have a lot to learn from her. No matter how many shots are taken at her, calling out her bad attitude or constant smirk or discomfort on the red carpet, she just owns those qualities even harder. So here's a Stewart quote for each of your life situations because, let's face it. We should all be more like her.
