The film-and-book franchise that made Kristen Stewart super famous also inspired the erotic phenomenon that is Fifty Shades of Grey. But that doesn’t mean you’ll catch the actress flipping through the book on an airplane.
In a recent interview with Backstage, Kristen admits to having “skimmed parts of it.” However, she’s not exactly a hardcore fan.
“But it’s just so raunchy!” she exclaims. “I mean, obviously, everyone knows that. But when I see people reading it on planes and stuff, I’m genuinely creeped out. Like, you’re basically just reading porn right now! Get that blanket off your lap!”
Another thing she doesn’t understand? Why people label Bella, her Twilight heroine, as “weak” or “passive.” She muses, “If Edward and Bella switched places, he would be viewed as someone to admire, someone who just lays everything on the line. It takes such a strong person to completely subject yourself to something and give yourself over to something so wholly. It’s an equal relationship; they both give the same amount, so why is she condemned for it? I don’t get it.”
To lighten the mood, watch this blast-from-the-past video in which Kristen and her Snow White and the Huntsman co-stars read a Fifty Shades passage. “My inner goddess roars!”
