Kristen Stewart doesn't understand why there are aggressive implications attached to being a feminist.
Kristen Stewart thinks it’s “silly” to worry about being labelled a feminist.
The 24-year-old actress holds strong opinions and is often open about her views on topical issues.
Speaking to the latest issue of Wonderland magazine, which she covers in a black and white photo, looking androgynous in a white T-shirt and chain with messy hair, Kristen shared what she thinks of people’s reaction to those who support women’s rights.
“It’s silly to play the devil’s advocate when having a conversation about female roles in Hollywood, because then you’re doing this ‘reverse feminism’ thing that has become weirdly trendy recently,” she sighed.
“I feel like some girls around my age are less inclined to say, ‘Of course I’m a feminist, and of course I believe in equal rights for men and women’, because there are implications that go along with the word feminist that they feel are too in-your-face or aggressive.”
She continued to note that females don’t have to follow particular rules to be a feminist, and that women needn’t necessarily stand for all things they think the label represents.
The star is currently busy promoting her latest ventures Clouds of Sils Maria and Still Alice, both of which have been praised by filmgoers and critics alike.
On top of her passion for acting Kristen has dabbled in writing, and has finished a potential project which she is keen to show.
“I wrote a sick short film that I’m really proud of,” she added. “It’s more abstract rather than super-narrative. It’s like a poem; it’s about water.”
She is particularly selective about what projects she takes on. In fact, she recently admitted she didn’t work for around two years because she couldn’t find something she liked enough to be involved with.
