Los Angeles, Nov 19 (IANS) Actress Kristen Stewart doesn't enjoy being in the spotlight but has learned not to let it upset her or restrict her behaviour.
Stewart says she won't give up her personal life for the sake of her public image.
"The spotlight is not something I get off on. You can't let it stunt you. Though, that's the thing. It's a huge change that I've definitely noticed within myself from the beginning to the end of this − that I'm more comfortable with walls being down," contactmusic.com quoted Stewart as saying.
"Because you can actually have human experiences and not deprive yourself of a normal life. You get too caught up in what other people think of you. You start to become a really disjointed persona and everyone's perception is their own," said the 22−year−old.
Stewart's top tip to survive becoming "exceedingly famous" is to just not overthink it and ignore other people's opinions.
"If you're considering other people's opinions about your life, that they really know nothing about, you are going to live a very disjointed, really unsatisfying, awful existence."
"You should probably be a bit more concerned about how you feel about yourself. It sounds completely cliche, but it's true, so you probably shouldn't think about it," she said.
