London: ‘Twilight’ actress Kristen Stewart insists she is not distant and cold but struggles to talk about herself as she still has a lot to learn.

The 21-year-old actress - who is best known for playing Bella Swan in the `Twilight Saga` film franchise - thinks she is often unfairly portrayed as distant and cold but believes she has that image because she finds out hard to talk about herself, reported InStyle magazine.

"I`m sometimes told I am a very distant and cold person. In real life, I`m very shy. I feel uncomfortable during interviews because I need to talk about myself. But to talk about yourself, you have to know who you are. When it comes to that, I think there are still a lot of things I need to discover about myself," Stewart said.

The actress, who is in a relationship with Robert Pattinson, also insisted she is exactly the same as everyone else and despite being famous, she shares the same life aspirations as her fans.

"Being a celebrity is not really something that bothers me, it`s the way it`s talked about and how actors are perceived by others. People are convinced that just because we`re known, our aspirations are different from theirs. But if they only knew...Our only ambition is to have friends, a good life and interesting projects. Just like everybody," Stewart added.
