'I'm not that smooth… I can get clumsy around certain people': Kristen Stewart reveals why she struggles to deal with fame
09:17 GMT, 4 September 2012
Since her affair with married director Rupert Sanders came to light, Kristen Stewart has kept a very low profile.
But in her first glossy magazine cover since the fallout, the Twilight actress has made her comeback in a revealing interview.
The 22-year-old, photographed by Mario Testino, explains how she just isn't capable of being smooth and the fame game is not as easy as people think it is.

Speaking to the October issue of British Vogue, she said: 'I know if you haven't thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition.
'But, dude, honestly I can't. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it.
'But, you know, I'm not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, 'OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public' I wouldn’t know who that person would be!
She added: 'It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can't.'
In the glossy photo shoot Kristen oozes cool sex appeal as she takes to the cover in a Gucci dress sporting a very glamorous look with her brunette locks tussled to the side.

However, for her recent film On The Road, she had to change her hair colour to blonde, a move she wasn't entirely comfortble with.
She told Vogue: 'I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!'
In the movie, Kristen plays Marylou, a member of the beat generation, and although the era was long before her time, it is a period that she can associate with.
She said: 'There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. It's not necessarily a rebellious thing, it's just who they are.
'That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I'm fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn't even alive then.
'It's the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do.
Kristen added: 'People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.'
