Kristen Stewart found it hard to cope with fame

London: ‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart says she was a freak who embarrassed her family because she didn`t know how to react when she was recognised in public.

The 22-year-old actress, who shot to fame appearing alongside Jodie Foster in `Panic Room` when she was just 13, said she found it hard to cope with being recognised in public, reported Contactmusic.

"People would come up to me when I was eating with my family in a restaurant or something and I would always just curl up into myself in a ridiculous manner. My family would be embarrassed and it would be like, `Kristen, what are you doing? Just be nice and say hello`. And I honestly don`t know what my problem was.

"I think it`s natural that 13 year olds can be pretty insecure, but what`s unnatural about it was that I wasn`t insecure. I loved talking to people normally. I was so engaged and outgoing. It`s just fame. That`s what I had a really hard time with," she said.
