Kristen Stewart: Indie Movies Saved My Sanity
Twilight star says small films gave her something to do when not being Bella...
The actress, who played Bella Swan in the vampire flicks, says she would have "turned mad" if she hadn't been able to work on other projects.
Speaking to On The Road in between. Otherwise I'd probably have turned mad."
She also said she doesn't resent media interest in her private life - because being in the movie industry means so much to her.
"You can't let this whole circus irritate you," she continued. "I will always have good memories about Twilight, and I had no clue what would happen when the first movie came into the theatres.
"I took the role because I love movies. Of course movies are just entertainment, but to many people particular films mean so much more. I'm one of these people.
"Movies can tell you something about life, they can help you understand it better, they can awaken your interest, or be the reason why you question certain things. They can be f***ing important."
K-Stew recently revealed that she was terrified of dancing in On The Road.
