Being Bella isn't easy — or so says "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart in the February issue of Vogue.
Though she has played Stephenie Meyer's fictional heroine since 2008, Stewart feels additional pressure to do the character justice now that the two-part "Breaking Dawn" finale is bringing the saga to a close.
“[She is] a character who is embedded in so many people’s psyches at this point," Stewart, 20, says of Bella. "It’s starting to enter my head a lot more than it used to because it’s at the end and it’s come such a long way. I just want the fans of the book to be happy. I don’t necessarily care about anyone else.”
While the "Twilight" films have brought her worldwide fame, Stewart admits that she misses her anonymity. “There’s no way to eloquently put this. I just can’t go to the mall," she says. "It bothers me that I can’t be outside very often. And also to not ever be just ‘some girl’ again. Just being some chick at some place, that’s gone.”
But then again, the films have earned her a pretty penny. “It’s funny when you are endowed not only with public recognition on a [expletive] seriously vast level, but also money,” she told Vogue. “Like, funds.”
Stewart plans to put the money to good use by opening halfway houses to help those in the sex trade get their lives together.
"That would be amazing," says Stewart, who came up with the idea while researching a role. "Right now it's the thing I feel most connected to."
Parts one and two of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" will arrive in theaters in November 2011 and 2012, respectively.
