More DAZED Photos of KSTEW + Interview!

Dazed went to L.A. to take Kristen Stewart away from the glare of the paparazzi and exclusively speak to her about dealing with fame and life beyond the Twilight saga.

Photographer David Benjamin Sherry and stylist Katie Shillingford also took Kristen on a psychedelic shoot, from which Dazed Digital have extra shots here, not seen in the magazine. On the shoot, Sherry says "I have never seen ‘Twilight but I was researching lots of images of her. I was inspired by the paintings of Patrick Nagel. I was reminded of a young Jodie Foster or Winona Ryder. I tried to portray a new way of seeing this blossoming teenage actress.”

Here is an excerpt of the interview with Kristen where she speaks extensively about her role in Jake Scott's upcoming film Welcome to the Rileys.See the full feature on Kristen Stewart in Dazed's September issue out tomorrow.

  • Dazed Digital: You are in the midst of becoming a huge star. There’s a truckload of paparazzi outside the door right now.
  • Kristen Stewart: Yeah, but you can’t think about it too much because if you think about it too much it is this weird and dreamy fantasy land – you think – ‘ what the hell absurd thing are we doing at 3 o’clock in the morning, with 300 people- pretending to be other people, what the fuck are we doing?
  • DD: The paparazzi thing is only since Twilight, right?
  • Kristen Stewart: Yeah since Twilight. That’s the only reason they’re out there. They find out where I am from the Internet - from Twitter, man! Anyone who wants to know where I am at any given time just has to go on Twitter, it’s so ridiculous!
  • DD: I assume playing Joan Jett is a lot different experience from Twilight?
  • Kristen Stewart: It’s so much fun. She’s the ultimate badass. She was the first woman to start her own record label. Everybody threw her out after the Runaways and was like, ‘Sorry girl, your shticks over’, she was like ‘No, the message stays the same people still want to hear it.'Who the fuck did that before her? The music industry is brutal. Once there’s one wave, one explosion of a type of music, everyone jumps on the bandwagon and tries to emulate that, so there’s a bunch of shitty versions of other bands. So there’s like shitty versions of everybody!
