Kristen Stewart Shares Advice to Daisy Ridley on How to Survive Being 'Star Wars' Famous

Kristen Stewart shares amazing advice to 'Star Wars: Force Awakens' star Daisy Ridley

Kristen Stewart is currently one of Hollywood's most vocal actresses who is not afraid to express her opinion and share tips to other aspiring actors and actresses. Despite growing up in front of the camera in the Twilight series, Stewart has remained humble and open about her experiences in Hollywood. Recently, Stewart shared advice she wanted to give to the newly discovered and now popular Star Wars leading lady, Daisy Ridley. Daisy Ridley DFree / Shutterstock.com Tinseltown / Shutterstock.com

It's literally mainly just about focusing on what makes you happy.

In a recent podcast interview with Scott Feinberg, the 25-year-old, who has just become the first American actress ever to win a Cesar Award for her role in Clouds of SIls Maria, explains how her experiences in Hollywood had prepared her for the acting job.

"As somebody who's dealt with the more absurd, really surreal, oftentimes insanely superficial, empty circus of what the media can be — and perception versus reality — I thought it was really funny and appropriate for me to play that part." Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com Celebrity social media presence is big business. As several major casting directors revealed in the past, acting talent only makes up a fraction of a decision to cast an actor for a role. In fact, the more Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook followers you have the more likely you are going to get cast. But, Stewart has shied away from all of that.

"I've never fed into it. I've never had a public Twitter, I've never had a public Facebook or things where people go on and look at your every move, like Instagram and stuff like that, because it's just so empty and distracting.

She continues on by saying, "I've never fed into it. I've never had a public Twitter, I've never had a public Facebook or things where people go on and look at your every move, like Instagram and stuff like that, because it's just so empty and distracting. I don't understand how so many people don't view it as what it is, which is nothing at all. It's just nothing, all of it — it doesn't exist. And so yeah, it's weird — but it makes sense."

"I trust myself a little bit more. When I was a little bit younger, I used anxiety and nerves, which I still have a lot of.

Stating that her life has not been the same since Twilight at the age of 17, Kristen has experienced a paradigm shift in terms of a regular lifestyle, but that shift has only reinforced her love for acting and with every year the actress becomes more focused about who she is and what she wants. "I trust myself a little bit more. When I was a little bit younger, I used anxiety and nerves, which I still have a lot of. It's just that I'm better at channeling them. I get better every time I do a job. It's getting more fun."

"And if losing your anonymity or whatever doesn't make you happy, then focus on something else."

"Focus on the fact that you're stoked 'cause you're doing the work that you want to do. It's literally mainly just about focusing on what makes you happy. And if losing your anonymity or whatever doesn't make you happy, then focus on something else." DFree / Shutterstock.com
