Kristen Stewart, who has been called an amazing cook by her On The Road co-star Garrett Hedlund, is a Food Network addict who enjoys cooking and playing golf in her free time.
“I’m such a dork,” Stewart told Vogue, referring to her obsession with cooking and golf, a sport most people don’t associate with beautiful 20-year-olds.
Ironically, Kristen was put on a diet by Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon, who wanted her fit and toned for her sexy bikini shots and honeymoon scenes.
‘I Wish I Could Walk Outside By Myself’
Kristen, who skyrocketed to the Hollywood A-list, thanks to the astonishing mainstream popularity of the Twilight saga, will reportedly earn $25 million to film the two Breaking Dawn films, but longs for simpler pleasures.
“There’s no way to eloquently put this,” says Stewart. “I just can’t go to the mall. It bothers me that I can’t be outside very often. And also to not ever be just ‘some girl’ again. Just being some chick at some place, that’s gone.”
Kristen, who’s now a paparazzi target who travels with bodyguards and is constantly asked about her relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson just wants to be able to take a walk by herself.
“I felt so good walking down the street by myself [before Twilight became a global phenomenon in 2009],” she recounts. “[Then Twi-mania] really erupted. It was a weird thing to watch.”
But Stewart understands that many young girls relate to her character Bella Swan.
“Masses of girls identified with Bella in a really profound way,” she says. “The connection that I’ve seen people have [is incredible]… I’ve seen it physically. It’s the characters they’re flipping for.”
Wants to Set Up Charity for Sex Workers
Kristen, who has been acting since she was a child, finds Hollywood fame and fortune weird and interesting.
“It’s funny when you are endowed not only with public recognition on a f*cking seriously vast level, but also money,” she says. “Anytime I hear that somebody’s really rich, the first question is ‘Do you do anything with it? Or do you, like, chill? You just sit on it?’ ”
Stewart, who became a multi-millionaire thanks to Twilight, wants to put her fortune to good use just like superstar Angelina Jolie, who revealed how her U.N. charity work changed her life in her memoir, Notes from My Travels.
Specifically, Kristen wants to set up a charity for sex workers. Stewart became interested in establishing a network of halfway houses for sex workers after playing a runaway prostitute in Welcome to the Rileys. “That would be amazing,” said Stewart. “Right now it’s the thing I feel most connected to.”
