Is that a smile? (Mario Testino/Vanity Fair)
And that's not all Stewart, 22, wants to get off her chest. In the interview, which is to promote her upcoming film, "On the Road," she also reveals that she and Robert Pattinson, her "Twilight" love and real-life boyfriend, were originally criticized for being their usual non-happy selves during filming. "Me and Rob got into a lot of trouble," she says. "We were getting notes from the studio. They wanted me to smile all the time. They wanted Rob to be not so brooding. We were like, 'No! You need to brood your ass off.'" Pattinson defends his girlfriend to Vanity Fair, saying that she does indeed smile, but that the media chooses not to use those photos because "people have decided how they're going to perceive her."

Despite their characters' sulking demeanors, "Twilight" and its four sequels launched the two into superstardom in the eyes of the franchise's very dedicated and oftentimes overzealous fans. Although Stewart insists she doesn't consider them to be "scary," it's the commotion they cause that gets her anxiety levels soaring. "It feels like it's just an enormous body of water, like a wave that's stronger than you," she describes of red carpet events. "And it's loud like water, so it is all-encompassing. You'd have to be a sociopath not to be penetrated by the human energy that's, like, cumulatively being hurled at you from every direction."
