Kristen Stewart Explains Why Kristen Stewart Doesn't Smile

Why doesn't Kristen Stewart smile? Hmm. Is it because the weight of fame is too heavy on her lips? Is it because she doesn't want to make everyone jealous of her celebrity lifestyle? Is it 'cause her face is just a li'l old grump face? Let Kristen tell you herself.

In a recent Elle cover story, Stewart spoke about the impossibility of pleasing everyone all the time—specifically when it comes to smiling. She then revealed her no-smile secret:

"Now I feel like if I smiled for a paparazzi photo—not that I ever would—that's exactly what people would be desecrating me for. They'd be like, 'now you're going to give it up, now you're a sellout.' like, okay. What do you want? What would you like?"

Hmm. That's why she doesn't smile now—so people don't accuse her of selling out to Big Smiling and desecrate (sure) her—but why didn't she smile before? Huh. Good question! My guesses:

  • Hurty face
  • Smile broke
  • Heavy brain
  • Scaredy teeth
  • Bing bong
  • Lip crackle
  • Cloud brain
  • Anger wish
  • Shrug thought
  • Owwie cheeks

Feel free to leave your own guesses in the comments!
