Tesh/Marie Claire

Separated from Robert Pattinson, Kristen says she doesn’t put pressure on love.

On falling in love: “You don’t know who you will fall in love with. You just don’t. You don’t control it. Some people have certain things, like, ‘That’s what I’m going for,’ and I have a subjective version of that. I don’t pressure myself … If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them – but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I’m much too young to even have an answer for that question.”

In 2012 Stewart had a short fling with Rupert Sanders, the married director of the movie Snow White and the Huntsman in which she starred at the time.

After issuing a public apology, and the couple got back together but eventually broke up last year.

On handling the spotlight: “I have an embarrassing inability, seriously, of summoning fake energy…I’m just not very good on TV, and it’s not my main goal in life to get good at it. People are like, ‘She just can’t handle’ – for lack of a better word – ‘the spotlight.’ No, actually, I can’t, and that is totally who I am. I love being an actor, but I’m the last person to want to have a birthday party. I don’t try to force it or turn it into something else or fabricate this personality … so I totally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awkward person.”

On the prospects of having children: “I had it too good to not have that, too. If I were to put money on it, definitely, yeah. But you earn that, like, that’s so not here yet. I mean, at this point, I can’t tell you if I want to hang out on Saturday.”

On past mistakes: “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made, so judge away.”
