Internet Chops and Screws Kristen Stewart's Quote About Being "Out Of Control" While Acting

Illustration for article titled Internet Chops and Screws Kristen Stewarts Quote About Being Out Of Control While Acting

The good news is that we've transitioned into the Overanalysis of Interviews post-mortem phase of the Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart infidelity drama (alias Sparklegate), which means we are one step closer to hearing nothing more about it, ever again. The bad news is that a moment in K-Stew's pre-cheating scandal interview with U.K. magazine Little White Lies has brought out the dimestore psychologist that is the Internet, although she's discussing her acting process, not her personal life. You remember, right? Acting? That thing she does?

After discussing how acting gives her emotional fulfillment ("I'm perfectly fine, so through-and-through. I'm not hungry. I'm literally not even in my own body. They wrap and they send me back to my trailer and I fucking fall to pieces"), Stewart says:

I like to be scared. I love to suddenly feel out of control. Actors walk around wearing these little tool-belts of acting skills. And I just don't find that interesting to watch. I never want to see someone who clearly can cry at the drop of a hat. That's so uninteresting. And so many actresses are so fucking crazy. They're emotional wrecks, so they pretend to be these characters. But the emotions aren't coming from the right place. Do you know what I mean?


And now some people are like "Ohhhh, she likes to be out of control! That explains it!" and everyone else is

For the record, by this intensely silly logic, Brad Pitt's cavorting in a monkey suit on Jackass in 2002 totally foreshadowed his affair with Angelina Jolie in 2005, right? Right?

Okay. Kristen Stewart has now officially crossed the line for me. I used to be ambivalent about her- thought of her as mildly annoying, but ultimately harmless. Now... I kinda hate her.

And it has NOTHING to do with Robert Pattinson.
