It's basically established fact at this point that Kristen Stewart is the best, baddest, most criminally underestimated celebrity on the planet.
Really, you guys: If you still think of her as Bella from "Twilight" then you clearly haven't been paying attention.
But in case you needed further proof that Kristen went into a figurative chrysalis sometime in 2014 and then emerged as Queen of Cool of the Universe, her cover feature for August's Marie Claire should pretty much clinch it for you.
A sneak peek at the piece is already online, and in it, we get a glimpse of a very confident K-Stew who has perfected the exquisite art known as "giving no f---s." Case in point:
"Lately, I've been doing less of the 'I'm sooooo sorry.' And more of the 'No. Fuck. Jesus,'" she told her interviewer.
The "American Ultra" actress also dished on her choice to crop her long locks into an asymmetrical chop that defies categorization, which she did for the greatest reasons.
"My hair was such a crutch. I looked quote unquote 'sexy' no matter what. I could hide behind it," Stewart said. "As soon as I didn't have all that hair, I had to let my face hang out. I felt more confident than I had in a really long time. And it felt really good. Maybe to most people long hair is prettier. But then what? Is your main goal in life to be desired? That is boring as f---."
And while she doesn't explicitly mention the so-called scandal that seemed to mark a turning point in her approach to fame, Kristen does say that there came a time when she very consciously decided to torch the public persona she'd struggled to cultivate, that never really fit her anyway.
"I lit my universe on fire," she said, "and I watched it burn."
