Los Angeles: Actress Kristen Stewart doesn`t enjoy being in the spotlight but has learned not to let it upset her or restrict her behaviour.
Stewart says she won`t give up her personal life for the sake of her public image.
"The spotlight is not something I get off on. You can`t let it stunt you. Though, that`s the thing. It`s a huge change that I`ve definitely noticed within myself from the beginning to the end of this - that I`m more comfortable with walls being down," a website has quoted Stewart as saying.
"Because you can actually have human experiences and not deprive yourself of a normal life. You get too caught up in what other people think of you. You start to become a really disjointed persona and everyone`s perception is their own," said the 22-year-old.
Stewart`s top tip to survive becoming "exceedingly famous" is to just not overthink it and ignore other people`s opinions.
"If you`re considering other people`s opinions about your life, that they really know nothing about, you are going to live a very disjointed, really unsatisfying, awful existence."
"You should probably be a bit more concerned about how you feel about yourself. It sounds completely cliche, but it`s true, so you probably shouldn`t think about it," she said.
