Kristen Stewart claims actors become ”isolated” because of their fame.
The 24-year-old actress has become one of the biggest movie stars in the world following her portrayal of Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight’ franchise – in which she starred with her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
Although she loves her profession, Kristen believes she and other actors can get ”lonely” because other people treat celebrities differently.
Speaking in the new issue of Loaded magazine, she said: ”Actors become so isolated. 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.”
