Kristen Stewart is probably hoping 2013 isn’t as dramatic as it was in 2012. I’m pretty sure the 22-year-old actress can’t take another major cheating scandal. I know Robert Pattinson can’t. If Kristen remotely even strays again, I’m sure he’s outta there. So far, she’s off to a good start. K-Stew graces the spring preview issue of V magazine. She also poses for a fashion editorial titled “The Cult of Kristen Stewart” which was snapped by photographers Inez & Vinoodh.

Kristen can currently be seen in the movie adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road. Her next project originally had her starring opposite Ben Affleck in the comedy Focus. Recently, Affleck pulled out of the project where he was supposed to play her love interest. I wonder if Jennifer Garner influenced Affleck’s decision. Wouldn’t want another repeat of Affleck’s alleged dalliance with Blake Lively during filming The Town. Right?

With 2012 behind her, Stewart tells V magazine that she’s living life “unafraid” and doesn’t “want to deprive herself of any bit of life.” She tells the publication how she’s changed over the past year and how she plans on using her new-found confidence in her post-Twilight career. Here’s a tiny suggestion. Try to develop another signature look besides her go-to pissed off and bitter one. You know what I’m saying. I actually like K-Stew but she always looks so annoyed to be anywhere. Check out her latest photo shoot below. She looks gorgeous but a smile couldn’t hurt, or at the very least a smize ;)

On Her Role In On The Road

“I would have done anything, I would have played any part,” says Stewart. “Marylou is remarkable because she’s got a tough core. When you’re a teenager, a year can be crippling to maneuver through. You’re just out there questioning things, and so to be completely okay with that and not think that there’s anything wrong with you, that’s something I’ve recently understood. I’m 22. Marylou started this whole thing when she was 15.”

On Feeling Stronger

“I have realized that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but it’s a difficult thing,” she says. “You can’t see over, people can’t see in, and you also can’t see out. So I’ve gotten quite comfortable with just being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing: it’s not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them.”

On Her Future

“I am not closed off to anything right now. That is what I was saying about not having any more walls up. I don’t want to deprive myself of any bit of life.”
