On working on the film Panic Room (2002) with such a big name star as Jodie Foster: "When I got Panic Room I'm like, 'Oh my God that's huge! It's bigger than huge.' I was kind of freaked out at first."
(on her favourite designer): Oh, I don't know. Anything that's beat up. I kind of like to look like a hobo.
I don't want to make movies for kids, and I don't want to make movies for adults either.
I had to act in a school play when I was about ten years old. I really didn't want to do it. But everyone had to do it so I didn't have a choice. A talent agent came and watched it and later gave me some work. It's funny because I'd always known that I wanted a movie career. I just didn't think that I would be in the movies.
I love it because I love to tell stories. I like being in movies that have a great story. I'm not so interested in being a Hollywood star. It's a job, you know. When you wake up at six in the morning every day for a week, it feels like hard work.
(about if she wants to pursue acting as a career) I'd like to. But that's definitely not all I want to do. It's not the most intellectually stimulating thing that you can possibly do. I want to go to college. I'm going to take four years off. I don't want to miss that. I want to be a writer. I think that'd be awesome.
(about a role model in acting) I would say Jodie Foster because she's not just an actress. She's a director, she's a producer, she's a writer. She's conquered the business. You don't see her much in the press. She's very, very well respected, very professional. She's awesome.
about why spy movies featuring kids are so popular) Kristen: I think that it empowers kids, and kids like that because in real life when they're at school teachers are kind of overbearing. Sometimes older people can kind of be patronizing. But when movies empower kids, I think they like it a lot.
(about the movie 'Catch That Kid') I think it shows that if you have a best friend, you help them no matter what happens. I think kids can relate to that.
(Twilight) deals with the universe, and what life is about. You can make that cliché and bullshit and make it with everything being on the surface, (or) in this case make it a pretty triumphant love story.
(on her "Twilight" character, Bella) People like her, oddly enough, and she has no idea why. Then she falls in love with a vampire. What I like about it is that the characters are really unique.
About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominate that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.
On whether she wants to develop her skills as a writer: I do want to work on writing, because writing's a skill. Writing is something that you can train yourself to know better. To know yourself better. And it's intimidating as hell. I mean, I definitely will always do what I've been doing. I've also started taking a lot of pictures, and they help the writing. The pictures help the writing. I mean, I want to make books. I want to take pictures and then write all over the pictures. And then I don't have to say a complete story, because I have the picture, and I have just a word.
Kristen: (about "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson and his female fans) They covet Rob. I think half of them are so jealous that they hate me. Girls are scary. Big groups of girls scare the crap out of me.
Kristen (on her favourite designer): Oh, I don't know. Anything that's beat up. I kind of like to look like a hobo.
