'I don't like fake people': What Kristen Stewart said in interview with R-Patz… just before she was caught cheating
18:07 GMT, 9 August 2012
Kristen Stewart said she struggles to pull off the 'fake' Hollywood persona which many actors are 'so good at'.
The 22-year-old actress made the comments in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in mid-July, conducted alongside boyfriend Robert Pattinson, just around the time of her then-secret illicit fling with Rupert Sanders.
Stewart explained she just prefers being herself – and doesn't like the idea of being branded a phony in the interview, which was published today.

the UK premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1, says she doesn't like fake people in an interview conducted just before her cheating scandal
She said people have advised her to 'play a character' when appearing on the red carpet – but insisted she just can't do it.
'I don't like people like that…' Stewart said. '…People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem
like they are “on” and interesting and engaged.
'I care way more about the
people standing in the room,' she went on. 'I don't want anyone leaving and
saying, “God, that girl is so fake”.'

Kristen continued: 'People tell me to make it easier on myself and to play a character when
I go out on carpets and stuff. But you know what I'd
rather be me.'
Just weeks after the interview,
pictures were published of Stewart and her Snow White And The Huntsman
director Sanders, kissing and cuddling during a series of secluded
stop-offs around Los Angles.
It prompted Stewart to release a
public statement apologising to 26-year-old R-Patz for what she
described as a 'momentary indiscretion'.

Her comments also shed light on her
apparent decision to pull out of the premiere of her new film On The
Road, taking place next Thursday in London.
Apparently she is 'too ashamed' to
show her face following her infidelity – and clearly pasting on a smile
for the cameras is not something she is capable of doing, in light of
her comments to EW.
added edge of discomfort likely to have sealed the deal, is that
co-star Tom Sturridge (the father of Sienna Miller's baby) is due to
attend the August 16 soiree – who happens to be R-Patz's best bud.
A source told RadarOnline: 'Kristen won’t be doing the red carpet for On The Road, she’s too ashamed to show her face in public right now.
