I’m a weirdo who smokes pot. Big deal, says Kristen Stewart

London: Kristen Stewart has described herself as “kind of a weirdo, who smokes pot."

The ‘Twilight’ star was referring to the moment she realised that the vampire franchise would turn her instantly into a celebrity.

“You can Google my name and one of the first things that comes up is images of me, smoking a pipe,” the Mirror quoted her as telling Vanity Fair magazine.

“It was taken the day the movie [Twilight] came out. I was no one. I was a kid. The next day it was like I was a delinquent slimy idiot.

“I’m kind of a weirdo, creative Valley Girl who smokes pot. Big deal. But that changed my life instantly. I didn’t go out in my underwear anymore,” she said.

The 24-year-old actress also spoke about how she’s found certain elements of fame scary since the first Twilight film was released in 2008 and catapulted her into international consciousness.

“It’s not the fans that are scary, large groups of people are scary. There’s no individual there,” she said.

But she admits she is enjoying one perk of being famous - the free clothes and learning about high fashion, which surprised her boyfriend and Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson: “I never saw that coming.”

The hunky actor is referenced again in the piece, defending Stewart against accusations of being too grumpy: “People have decided how they are going to perceive her.

“No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling,” he added.
