Kristen Stewart sat down for a real, normal interview with beauty blog Into the Gloss recently, and it just went up. In it, Stewart comes close to acknowledging the events that sent her life into a tailspin recently, but pretty much just talks about her makeup and hair. Here she is, describing her style: "I really like extremes. I wear jeans and t-shirts and am a total tomboy, but at the same time, when I pull out all the stops [for an event], I want to fucking go for it, polarized in the other direction from my reality." That dispels with the myth that her stylist is forcing her into avant-garde couture for red carpets against her wishes, doesn't it? About her hair, she reveals that she wants to get a buzz cut and then a head tattoo.
Regarding her perfect skin, she says the secret is Proactiv. "It really, really works for me; I've used it since I was a teenager, a young teenager," she says. "I feel like I'm a total spokesperson for them because it really did help me and I'm always telling people, 'Oh, dude!' and mentioning it in interviews, but I can't imagine doing one of their commercials. I don't think they'd want me to, to be honest." Well whatever she's doing, it's working.
