Stewart dresses in drag in the June issue of Elle (Tom Munro)
Stewart, who's also fiercely private, particularly about her romantic relationship with "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson, has been acting for more than a decade. Audiences first took notice of her in 2002's "The Panic Room," where she played Jodie Foster's daughter. And while she's pretty open about her dislike of the fame that comes along with her profession, she still really loves her craft. "Laurence Olivier was asked, 'Actors, what's the impulse? Why?' And he was just like, 'Look at me, look at me, look at me, look at me....' That was his answer. But at the same time it's like, 'Nooo, don't look at me. Look at some version that I'm going to present to you. Let me control it.'"
The image Stewart chooses to present in the Elle photo shoot, which was done by Tom Munro, is that of both a glam Hollywood siren (think Angelina) and a dapper leading man. She posed in designs from high-fashion brands like Gucci, Prabal Gurung, Balenciaga, and Tom Ford. However, one of her accessories was noticeably missing. It was the gold ring she's been spotted wearing on her index finger that's rumored to be from R.Pattz. "Everyone wants to know," she says of the ring. "Everyone knows already — it's ridiculous."
