never-let-that-go:

“I never fixed a plan of career for myself. I never tried to influence the opinion of people on myself, which is what a lot of other people do. Some artists, some actors, they do everything to fit into the image of a certain type of actor or artist, and I’m really not like that. I’ve lived through a lot of situations, a lot of experiences more or less creative, with instinct. So I can’t let myself get overwhelmed by regret. When it comes to what people take of you and remember of you to forge an opinion on you, nothing is ever totally wrong. It’s some kind of collection of flavors that they grabbed in stores, theaters or online. I didn’t make up that mix myself and it doesn’t bother me more than that. But i’m not going to add anything to this pile of shit that is made up about me and that has nothing to do with reality. Ending up in the middle of all this is already weird enough without me making comments about it. But strangely, I feel capable of taking myself out of it and saying: “Isn’t it a little too easy?” I mean, it’s “funny”, as Valentine says in “Sils Maria”, the stories are funny, but you know that all of them, these contain people who play roles fabricated by the media and people who have their share of weekly gossip to post. It’s nothing more than soap-opera. I’m trying really hard to not let it affect me, to preserve my real life. People might believe that they know everything, but fuck, who knows the truth? No one. You’re going to die. You’ll be lying down next to the person you know the most in the world, the person you’re going to grow old with. And you’ll be next to this person in the middle of the night and you’ll be asking yourself a ton of questions because, shit, no one ever knows the fucking truth.”- Kristen Stewart.
