The 24-year-old, who recently became the first American actress to win France’s equivalent of the Oscar for ‘Clouds of Sils Maria,’ asks, “Why aren’t we [as a society] mentioning the fact that it’s so crazy that there are so many people that are so full of it? And why are we consuming them en masse?”
“I’ve never, ever been like, ‘One day, I’m gonna win an Oscar,'” Kristen Stewart told me on Friday when we met up on the campus of Santa Monica College. The 24-year-old, who has been acting since the age of nine, says her dreams have always centered on the work, not the reward. “Truly, my ‘one day’ was always, ‘I’m gonna be a director! One day, I’m gonna direct movies!'”

Most of the reason Stewart possesses this attitude is her understanding — gleaned from her 15 years of experience and from her parents, who are also employed in the industry — that the work is what matters, not the money, celebrity or accolades, all of which have fleeting value. But, she lets on, part of it is also a defense mechanism: “I’ve taken so much shit that I’m just like, ‘I’m not the winner!’ I’m not gonna be let down when I don’t get the pat on the back I’m totally used to the kick in the ass.”

Therefore, Stewart was as surprised as anyone on Feb. 20 when, from her seat in Paris at the 40th César Awards — France’s Oscars — she heard her name called as the winner of the best supporting actress prize for her performance as a movie star’s assistant in Olivier Assayas’ Clouds of Sils Maria, making her the first American actress ever to take home a César. (The film, which has brought Stewart some of the best reviews of her career, premiered at Cannes last May, went on to screen at the Toronto, New York and AFI film fests and will finally open stateside on April 10.)
