Kristen Stewart’s Not Done with Twilight Just Yet…

By  | 

It's been for-eh-ver since the release of the final installment in The Twilight Saga. (Actual time: 1 year and 9 months.) So you would think a star like Kristen Stewart, who's been hard at work on Camp X-Ray, Still Alice, Anesthesia, American Ultra and, most recently, Equals, since Breaking Dawn — Part 2 hit theaters would be so over talking about it by now, right? Well, ladies and gents, she's not done with Twilight just yet…

For ELLE's largest issue ever (slash the largest issue Hearst has ever published for any title, the 24-year-old actress dished on the moment she realized how big Stephenie Meyer's book-turned-movie franchise would be, "The day the movie came out there was a picture of me — in the New York Post, I think. I was sitting on my front porch, smoking a pipe with my ex-boyfriend and dog. And I was like, 'Oh s***, well, I have to be aware of that.'"

Of course that's not all she talked about: "Never at any point have I sat down and plotted how I should proceed from here on. As soon as you start thinking about your career as a trajectory — like, as if you're going to miss out on some wave or momentum — then you're never doing anything for yourself anyway. Then you're truly, actually, specifically working for the public. You're turning yourself into a bag of chips."
