Some people get into acting because they want to be famous. Others get into it because they love performing or to get over a fear like public speaking. And some people, apparently, are just bored and want something to do.
Kristen Stewart says she fell into the last category.
“At first, the reason I started doing this was literally just because I wanted a job,” she told Little White Lies during an interview about her new movie On the Road. “My parents are crew – my mom’s a script supervisor; my dad’s an AD – and I always looked up to them, I really totally completely glorified the movies. And so at first, I really just wanted the responsibility. I wanted adults to talk to me. I wanted to be involved. I was bored.”
Okay, Kristen. You know, most people just go on Facebook or Twitter when they’re bored. We’re going to have to try YOUR boredom buster next time.
What do you think about how Kristen says she got into acting? Why would YOU want to be an actor?
