Say it ain’t so: Kristen Stewart is going to take a break from the big screen! The Camp X-Ray actress revealed during an interview with USA Today that she has other dreams she wants to fulfill right now — and they don’t include acting.
Stewart’s Hollywood star has been rising over the years, and she has starred in movies since she was 14 years old. So, now it’s time for her to try her hand at other things.
“I’m taking some time off because I’ve been working for two years. I’m an actor and that’s my art form, and because I started that so young, I’ve always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create,” she told USA Today.
“I’m going to buy a live-work space in downtown LA and I’m going to make some (stuff) with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago. I’m making a short film. I’m making a bunch of (stuff). I don’t know how I’ll put it out. But I’m not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time.”
And while we’re sad that we won’t be seeing Stewart on the big screen for a while, there is a silver lining to this story: She’s really happy with her life right now!
“Now, I really have no apprehension about anything, which is great. I can get behind all of my creative endeavors more so than ever before. I’m super happy and challenged and inspired and relaxed,” she said.
And we’re glad to hear it!
