Kristen Stewart calls out “disgustingly sexist” Hollywood

KStew is about to get so darn real with it, we can feel a hi-five coming on.

Haters, please make an orderly queue to the left because Kristen Stewart is about to speak a few home truths.

It’s been seven years since we first saw Kristen as a shy teenager thrown into a world of bloody chaos (pun intended) that was The Twilight Saga. But since the popular franchise ended the 25-year old actress has already established herself outside of her vampire alter-ego, making thirteen additional films and most recently winning a prestigious César Award. She's also become a hell of a lot more ballsy and outspoken, which we're loving.

In her latest interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, KStew gets candid about her thoughts on sexism in Hollywood, famously famous people, and that Twilight sex scene- all whilst being decked out head to toe in Chanel. #yas

Although Kristen is known for keeping her private life, well… pretty darn private, one thing she has made clear in the past that she is a feminist, and she continues her feminist awesomeness in this latest interview.

"Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy," she told the Harper's.

Another known fact about Kristen is that she isn’t an avid supporter of a life in the spotlight, and she also touches on this topic and people who seek fame for no apparent reason (without pointing fingers, of course).

“Fame is the worst thing in the world. Especially if it's pointless. When people say, 'I want to be famous’ why? You don't do anything." she says.

If you thought that was as candid and down-to-earth as Kristen could get, you’d be wrong. Despite looking effortlessly glamorous on the June cover, she says she feels best when she’s eating fast food and chilling. “I'm a little bigger than sample size when I'm eating cheeseburgers and am happy and comfortable," she said. But she also shut down any future ‘yoyo dieting’ headlines while she was at it, "If I'm stressed or working, the weight falls off. My weight and my sleep are tied to my nervous system. Sometimes I'll sleep for 12 hours a night and sometimes sleep just doesn't exist for me for a couple of months."

Although there was no mention of her former bae, Robert Pattinson, Kristen did go into detail about the pressures of losing her on-screen virginity in that famous sex scene. “On Twilight we had to do the most epic sex scene of all time. It had to be transcendent and otherworldly, inhuman, better sex than you can possibly ever imagine, and we were like, 'How do we live up to that?' It was agony. Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good."

Well there you have it folks, Kristen Stewart isn’t afraid to speak the truth and we are seriously loving her for it.
