I want to make movies one day, like absolutely I want to direct movies. And I directed this music video (for indie band Sage + The Saints) and I was like, it’s just this dinky little thing and it’s fun, and I’m so happy to do it, but it’s going to be a big deal, no matter what. Even if I shoot it on a Polaroid camera, people will be like, ‘What did she do? Let’s take a look.’ It’s like, ‘How about you give me a second to figure it out?’ So, yes, that’s not something to complain about. It’s incredible that I can do that. It’s just kind of weird. It’s different.
You actually don’t even have to introduce yourself if you don’t want to, i don’t need an a/s/l, we don’t have to do the “hey whats up” “not much you?” thing, you can just say “so at school yesterday this idiot said…” in my ask box and I will gladly converse with you. Like seriously I will just talk to you like we’re best friends.

Actors become super isolated. Again, I’m not fucking complaining about it. But you have a very unique perspective on things because people don’t talk to you. They feel like they can’t come up and say, ‘Hi.’ Suddenly you’re incredibly lonely. So people hire friends for these jobs, and then the lines get blurred. They’re your co-worker, your employee, your associate, your friend, your mom sometimes.
I also just like really like big movies. I’m American, I grew up on them. But I also want them to be really good. I think that that’s totally possible. When you’re not completely product obsessed, I think it’s possible.

Watch it here.
I just directed this music video with my friend, and it’s going to be made to be something that it’s not. It’s something I did in four days, it was a fun little story, and it’s going to get more attention than whatever it’s supposed to get. I think it’s just something to play on. If you can’t change it, then don’t be afraid of it — push harder!
— Kristen Stewart about her tattoo on her right forearm (x
I got this because of this film. I gave Valentine [her character in ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’] tattoos for the film, so I had transfers made. You don’t know anything about Valentine, it’s all about Maria. And that’s a huge aspect of the story, is that she never focuses on herself. They never talk about her life, ever. I wanted to show little indications of, ‘Who is that?’ Instead of just playing an assistant that was generic. She has interests, she’s going to places, you just don’t know where they are. And so I got so attached to this one that I got it. /…/ This is part of ‘Guernica’. It’s a Picasso painting that I saw when I was 18 and in Madrid. It fucking floored me and it’s the first time I responded to a piece of art like that. It is just perfect for me. I love what it makes me think of. It’s like ‘keep going, and keep the fucking light on.’
I’m not saying that anyone’s impression of me is wrong, but initially I was deemed very ungrateful, like I didn’t care. It’s a thing. Think anything about me, do NOT think that I don’t care. It was because I was nervous and I was freaking out that everyone was fucking staring at me.
