Kristen Stewart: Cover Girl For The Latest Issue Of "V Magazine"

Kristen Stewart Covers ‘V Magazine’: Talks Life, Loves, And Liberation

Kristen Stewart, a name that both polarizes and inspires, is currently featuring on the front cover of the latest issue of V Magazine.

Alongside the ultra modern, and frankly, beautiful photographs — shot by famed Dutch duo, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin — in the accompanying article, the 22-year-old talked about her life, what she’s learned, and liberation.

As 2013 casts off, Stewart has already said goodbye to Bella Swan, heroine of the $3.31 billion (and counting) earning TwilightSaga franchise and a cult icon for a generation of moviegoers that took the character — and the actress who brought her to life — to their hearts.

But since standing still is anathema for an artist, it is in the present and to the future that Stewart says she is now looking.

“I am not closed off to anything right now,” she tells V. “That is what I was saying about not having any more walls up. I don’t want to deprive myself of any bit of life.”

Whether Stewart is referring to life in general or the public mauling she endured last summer isn’t elaborated on. Suffice it to say, this self-described “contemporary, sensitive, normal girl” isn’t hiding away from the challenges that a life lived in the spotlight presents.

“You can’t see over, people can’t see in, and you also can’t see out,” she observes. “So I’ve gotten quite comfortable with just being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing: it’s not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them.”
