Ever since Kristen Stewart issued a statement about her ‘momentary indiscretion’ we wondered if we would see a new side to the star, considering it was the first moment that she had publicly acknowledged her boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
Admittedly she had been caught cheating on him with married director Rupert Sanders, and now Kristen has claimed that she’s changed her outlook on life in the past year.

In a sultry new photoshoot for V magazine, the 22-year-old said: “I have realised that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but it’s a difficult thing.”
“You can't see over, people can't see in, and you also can't see out. So I've gotten quite comfortable with just being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing: it's not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them."
The ‘On The Road’ actress seems to be embracing her new-found mantra to the fullest, as she's planning to use the confidence in her movie career.
"I am not closed off to anything right now. This is what I was saying about not having any more walls up. I don't want to deprive myself of any bit of life."

During the promotion of 'Breaking Dawn: Part Two', Kristen admitted that she was desperate to get her teeth stuck into a new project, and shortly after it was announced that she would be starring opposite Ben Affleck in new rom-com 'Focus'.
The 'Argo' star has now pulled out of the project, but Kristen sounds really excited about the new movie.
"The script is really fun," she said, "and I love the writers and directors, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa." Despite a rough 2012, Kristen and her beau Robert Pattinson were seen in the UK ahead of New Year's celebrations this year.
The low-key couple were apparently spotted on the tube at Victoria station, and later at Portsmouth before catching a ferry to their favourite spot in the Isle of Wight.
