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?

    I would want to start acting in a small play, but not in a huge movie. I would only go small.

  2. blakiecatty says:

    I would want to act so I wouldn’t be hidden in the background. Life is depressing when you’re TOO normal; I agree with @blakiecatty because I would also like to act to fulfill my wonderful dream of becoming an actress!

  8. Swiftie13 says:

    I think it would’ve been better if she got into it cause she actually liked it! If I got into acting it would be because I would want to show a different side of me and be wacky and creative!
