Stewart: Celebrity can be isolating

Stewart: Celebrity can be isolating

Kristen Stewart doesn’t want to be the next Angelina Jolie.

The 20-year-old actress - who plays Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight’ movies – respects Angelina’s acting talents and commitment to humanitarian work but she would not want to trade places with her.

She said: "I don't want to be Angelina Jolie. Not that Angelina Jolie isn’t the most talented, beautiful, successful, amazing, admirable person who does good things for the world, but I don't want to be a movie star like that."

Despite being in one of the biggest films of the moment, ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’, Kristen doesn't enjoy being in the limelight.

The brunette beauty – who is rumoured to be dating her co-star Robert Pattinson - added: "I don't think there's anything about being a celebrity that's desirable. I understand, though, that everybody's going to know who you are and what you look like, but why be so obsessive? People are in love with you and they don't even know you. It can be isolating."
