In a new interview with Elle magazine, the Snow White and the Huntsman actress revealed that she loves the process of stepping into her characters but has little interest in the celebrity aspect of her career.
"I f**king love everything about [acting]. I love movies, I love what they do. I am just so fuelled by it like nothing else in my life," Stewart explained.
"[But] I'm really boring; things I would want to read about have not happened to me. But that's the reason you read those books and watch those movies. This job is just a crazy, different step forward from being able to watch a movie. It's like I'm truly walking into someone else's shoes, I get to live there. And I want to do that because I'm pretty sure I have something to learn each time."
Stewart went on to say that while she doesn't mind being a role model to young women, she tries not to personalise the experience or let it affect the way she lives her life.
"I don't apply it to the choices I make. I feel like a role model is not necessarily somebody you want to imitate, just someone you admire. I look at characters I play sometimes and think, 'F**k, I would like to be like that'.
"It makes sense to me why other people don't just look at that person, they look at me. Anyone who happens to choose to look up to me, it's like, 'But I'm literally you. I'm looking up to the characters you're admiring me for choosing'."
Stewart was recently cast in gritty action thriller Cali, in which she will play one half of a couple who fake their own deaths.
