Despite the fact that Kristen Stewart’s general energy level on any given day is equal to that of a sloth on Ambien, she says that she used to be high-strung and anxious, but she’s not anymore. Jet lag in human form told Marie Claire (via People) that she’s a relaxed, wiser KStew now that she’s older.
“Between ages 15 and 20, it was really intense. I was constantly anxious. I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating.
I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is fucking awesome.”
KStew is only 25, so at the rate she’s going, she’ll be a Solitudes CD by the time she’s 30. But just because she’s calmer doesn’t mean she’s 100% chill. Hollywood’s perpetually pissed-off stepdaughter also managed to hiss a subtle “fuck off” to the members of Team Long Hair.
“My hair was such a crutch. I looked quote unquote ‘sexy’ no matter what. I could hide behind it. As soon as I didn’t have all that hair, I had to let my face hang out. I felt more confident than I had in a really long time. And it felt really good. Maybe to most people long hair is prettier. But then what? Is your main goal in life to be desired? That is boring as fuck.”
She also went on to confess that being older means not apologizing as much either.
“Lately, I’ve been doing less of the ‘I’m sooooo sorry.’ And more of the ‘No. Fuck. Jesus.'”
As a Canadian person, I’m sure my brain would explode Scanners-style if I replaced “I’m sorry” with “No. Fuck. Jesus.”
