Is Kristen Stewart playing her most relatable character yet?
The 26-year-old actress opened up about her new role as Maureen in "Personal Shopper" during the 2016 New York Film Festival on Oct. 6, and she made her seem like she's the stalker in all of us.
Maureen is an assistant for a high-fashion model, and she also has a connection to the spirit world as a medium to her late brother.
"I think that Maureen wants to be entirely invisible, and at the same time really be seen -- she really struggles with that," Kristen said about her character. "And that's pretty much everyone right now."
Kristen could relate to Maureen because of her own personal social media decisions. "I don't hide anything. I don't have any public social media thing that I do, engagement, but I ultimately want to be seen," she said. "It's weird, like we think we have more control over that now than we've ever had because we have it in our hands? But we have none."
She even called society's collective preoccupation with other people "weird" and "so unbelievably distracting."
And she didn't stop there. "Much cooler, productive rad things could be happening," she said. "I know I sound ridiculous and really obvious; everyone says this, and I sound like an older person, but we could be doing way cooler s---. It's so time-consuming."
Just when she made us want to get off of social media entirely, Kristen made it seem okay that we're all just stalkers.
"We stalk each other. I stalk people, I get stalked, we all get stalked," she said.
Thanks for the reminder that we're truly not alone, Kristen!
