Stop Asking Kristen Stewart Why She Doesn’t Smile


Wed, August, 12 by


Certain celebrities must get tired of getting asked the same questions all the time and that is definitely the case with actress Kristen Stewart and her reputation for never smiling. When the topic came up on last night’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the American Ultra star had a good sense of humour about it, even at first pretending like she wasn’t aware of this grumpy perception people have of her: “What are you talking about? I smile all the time!”

When Fallon brings out her latest Marie Claire cover (in which, yes, she is not smiling), Stewart defends herself by saying, “They tell me to do that […] That’s magazine stuff, right?”

But, of course, this notion of Stewart being a Hollywood grump continues to get perpetuated by the media when, in reality, the actress says (and we do believe her) that she smiles all the time. Does she want to smile for the paparazzi all the time? Probably not, and that’s totally understandable. And that’s why we love her so darn much: she doesn’t succumb to the pressures of fame and remains the realest of people in the limelight.

That being said, take a look below as Stewart talks about a recent time she tried to weird out photographers by smiling at them. Too bad that only drew more paparazzi…

And see Kristen Stewart get real silly with Jimmy Fallon in a game of Word Blurt!
