Kristen Stewart claims her year off from acting was accidental

Kristen Stewart Kristen Stewart says she didn't plan to take a year off. The Twilight Saga actress - who last took a break in 2006 - is a ''workaholic'' and though she had been considering taking a break, she didn't appear in any movies last year because she couldn't find any projects that appealed to her. She said: ''I had sort of been considering taking time off for a long time, but this was not planned. I'm a total workaholic, and if there's something out there that feels worth it, then I will work through Christmas. It doesn't matter. It was simply because I didn't find anything that I really dug.'' Kristen, 23, who returned to work in Camp X-Ray, in which she plays a Guantanamo Bay guard - thinks it is important for her career to take time off and ''recharge'' now and again. She told MTV News: ''It is important to fill the well. As an actor, all you want to do is give as much as can, and obviously, you need experience to draw from. Not to say that you're not having experience while making movies. It's nice to decompress and recharge. It really is a necessary step to being a good actor.''

    How would she know what it’s like to be a good actor?

    You are both a ss holes, I hope when you have kids someone talks bad about them so you can feel what that’s like.

    Twilight will smear the rest of her acting life and if she takes too much time off well that’s okay lol

    Its a glimpse into their mind and you’ll see they will not amount to anything themselves. The rest of their lives will be full of disappointment and regret. Only when they mock someone else and have others join in can they feel a part of something. This is the way the world is heading towards, nothingness. Sigh.

    Titanic didn’t smear Leo’s career. She is a good actor…Speak, Welcome to the Rileys, the Yellow Handkerchief, Adventureland, On the Road etc. Twilight didn’t provide an opportunity for an optimal performance by any of the actors attached to the projects.

    She is still young. Given the right roles I believe she will blossom.

    She certainly is very optimistic person… and possibly delusional! I don’t like her as an actress because she looks so depressed or angry all the time.

    Yeah, she accidentally was in the Twilight movies and couldn’t get any job afterwards XD.

    I’m not sure which is more hilarious the accidental part or that after the Twilight movies she couldn’t find any movies that appealed to her. What could surpass the twilight movies afterall, haha.

    Well I’m sure she can find some bad movies to save her career.
