Kristen Stewart: “I Like Being Really Sexy Or Insanely Androgynous”
Kristen Stewart says she likes “being really sexy or insanely androgynous” in a new excerpt from her Harper’s Bazaar UK cover story.
As Gossip Cop reported, the actress appears on the cover of the June 2015 issue, in which she opens up about everything from Twilight to fame to weight. She also discusses her looks, explaining her approach to fitness, beauty, and even plastic surgery. Stewart, who is the face of several Balenciaga and Chanel campaigns, admits, “I’m not great at applying makeup myself.”
“My mom never taught me anything. She doesn’t wear makeup,” says Stewart. “I have the most amazing relationships with makeup artists and hairdressers. They’re some of my best friends. I’m always embarrassed about going and hanging out with them as I’m always expecting them to ask, ‘What are you using?’ and my only response is, ‘Just some stuff you gave me.'”
The movie star has had short hair for the last few years, something that seems to be not just a professional choice, but a personal one, too. “I don’t like having nice hair, ever. There’s something about it that pushes me over into feeling like I’m wearing a costume. So long as I can have my hair the way it normally is, then I can do everything else full on,” explains Stewart.
And, despite how Hollywood sometimes makes it seems, Stewart says it requires serious effort to stay fit, confessing, “It takes me about a month to get into phenomenal shape with a trainer.” So, how does she do it? “When I’m in good shape I can do 40 push-ups in one go. If I’m not in good shape, I can do 10. If I am trying to get into shape and I want to be strong, I’ll drop and do 20 every half hour throughout the day. I can do 250 push-ups in a day, which is pretty impressive,” says the star, adding, “At the moment, I can do 20 comfortably.”
Stewart’s strongest response comes when asked about potentially getting plastic surgery: “No, never. Never.” She confesses, “I am so freaked out by the idea of doing anything. And maybe that’s completely arrogant but I don’t want to change anything about myself.”
“I think the women who do are losing their minds. It’s vandalism,” adds Stewart. The full interview is on newsstands now.
