There are always going to be Kristen haters and those who critique her appearance, as she says, "I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph. I get some serious sh-t about it. I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm proud of it."
She adds, "If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like sh-t in half my photos, and I don't give a f–k."
Instead, Kristen wants people to know that she's "honest," noting, "What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, 'She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.' I don't care about the voracious, starving sh-t eaters who want to turn truth into sh-t."
Robert Pattinson was apparently on hand to chime in on the Vanity Fair interview as well, supporting Kristen by saying, "People have decided how they are going to perceive her. No matter how many times she smiles, they'll put in the one picture where she's not smiling."
Check out the behind-the-scenes Vanity Fair photo shoot--Kristen wears some insanely beautiful clothes.
