At 18, Kristen Stewart made her big screen debut as Twilight's Bella Swan, and "my life was never even remotely the same," she tells . People suddenly wanted to know everything about her: what she was wearing, who she was dating, and what she was doing off set. Starring in a big film franchise made her an instant celeb—something Daisy Ridley of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is currently experiencing. "It's a huge lifestyle shift, you know? It's small things really," Stewart says. Her advice to Daisy? Don't mind the cameras.
Focus on the fact that you're stoked 'cause you're doing the work that you want to do. It's literally mainly just about focusing on what makes you happy. And if losing your anonymity or whatever doesn't make you happy, then focus on something else.
Wise words. Stewart doesn't regret signing onto Twilight and throwing herself into that fame either: "A whole lot of other baggage— and baggage—came along with it."
