Kristen Stewart: Actors are isolated

Kristen Stewart says the reason actors seem self-obsessed is because, as artists, they need to explore their inner selves before expressing themselves outwardly.

Kristen Stewart says actors become ''isolated'' and ''lonely'' because regular people don't want to talk to them in a normal way

“It’s like any kind of art,” she tells Loaded in a new interview. “It’s not being an actor and being famous. If you’re not putting something back in, you’re not going to have any more to put out. So actors focus so much on themselves and what they’re doing and choosing their thing.”

The actress knows that she needs to take a break from her busy moviemaking pace. She explains, “It’s like, ‘Go live a little bit of life and then go show us something that you’ve learned, rather than obsessively focusing on your career constantly.’”

“I mean I’ve worked a lot. It’s not like I’ve taken breaks,” Stewart tells the magazine, going on to describe where her sensitivity probably originates. “Most people live their lives happily, they find who they love, they do their jobs, they have families. The impulse to make stuff is not in everyone. And most people who have that impulse are a little weird and so they need to take care of themselves. It’s like they’re a little bit more sensitive or whatever.”

It’s like people aren’t allowed to talk to us. Like if you’re a big star, or whatever, if you’re like a famous person, it’s kind of lonely. Like people don’t want to talk to you.”

Kristen has seen many of her professional peers form very close relationships with their assistants because they end up spending so much time together.

She revealed: ”I’ve seen people hire a friend. Literally, like, you hire someone. They’re your assistant but then lines start to blur and now they’re a co-worker, an associate, an employee, my friend, my sister, somebody that I’m attracted to.”

As well as being cut off from society, the ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’ star says actors constant need for approval for their self-worth can be a damaging aspect of the profession.

She said: ”You’re just constantly thinking about what other people are thinking about you. I think it’s people who want to be movie stars – and this is such bullshit – but the life really is a huge driving force in so many actors and actresses. Solely. And they won’t be happy at the end, because they’re not doing anything for themselves, everything is for someone else. They’re always appeasing and always satisfying and always trying to do something to stay at this level.”
