Los Angeles: `Twilight` star Kristen Stewart hates being pursued by paparazzi so much that she has compared the experience to being "raped".
The 20-year-old actress, who plays Bella Swan in the vampire franchise, said that being photographed and falsely reported by paparazzi makes her feel like someone being raped, reported Aceshowbiz online.
"It`s so... The photos are so.. I feel like I`m looking at someone being raped. A lot of the time I can`t handle it. I never expected that this would be my life," said Stewart.
"What you don`t see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction. All you see is an actor or a celebrity lit up but a flash," she added.
The actress, who is rumoured to be dating her co-star Robert Pattinson, hates being judged by the things people say about her.
"Your little persona is made up of all the places that people have seen you and what has been said about you. And usually the places that I am are so overwhelming in the moment and fleeting for me - like one second where I`ve said something stupid, that`s me, forever," said Stewart.
