Kristen Stewart’s highly-anticipated interview with Juliette Lewis is the cover story for the September issue of Elle UK.

As Gossip Cop reported, the actresses met up in June for a sit-down chat, the results of which are now in the magazine’s biggest issue of the year. Lewis says of Stewart, “You’re the female James Dean… But actually you’re a little bit rougher. I think you’re a scrapper. I think you can throw a punch.” Stewart, however, points out that she’s not the bitchy girl people often perceive her to be.

Of having “resting b*tch face,” Stewart says, “The whole smiling thing is weird because I actually smile a lot. I literally want to be like, ‘Dude, you would think I was cool if you got to know me.'” Just don’t expect to get to know her on social media. “The idea of addressing such a massive group… If I don’t know who I’m talking to it doesn’t make any f*cking sense to me,” she says.

Still, Stewart acknowledges, “I apologize constantly, incessantly… There’s something so natural about saying yes I think with women there’s a natural inclination to want to satisfy people.” One famous person, though, is helping Stewart to be strong. She reveals Patti Smith has been her mentor since they first met when she was “in a f*cked up place” in her life.

“[She] was like, ‘I just want you to know that your people care about you, that we’re here for you, and I’m your people.’ And we kind of stayed in contact,” reveals Stewart. She continues, “Then I was in New York again and she walked up to me at another after-party – it had been a long time since we’d talked – and she said, ‘It’s a full moon tonight and I heard that you were in town, so I came out to find you and here you are!’ And I was like, ‘You’ve got to stop saying the coolest things ever!’”

Of course, Stewart is quite cool herself, and the magazine proves it with a behind-the-scenes video called “How to be a badass by Kristen Stewart.” Watch below!
