Man, is there anyone cooler than Kristen Stewart? ...Okay, stop. STOP. DON'T EVEN TRY IT. The answer is no, there is not. Kristen Stewart is the coolest human being currently alive on the planet, full stop.
And with the actress celebrating her 25th birthday today, we've rounded up 25 times -- one for each year of her life -- that she was so cool, we couldn't stand it. (The best thing about this list: It could have been four times as long.)
When she explained why she gives zero f---s about looking lousy in pics.
"I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph… I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, 'She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.'"
When she was the tiny voice of reason in "Panic Room."
When she revealed her incredibly relatable desire for feline ESP.
When she called out sexist double standards.
"Being a public figure, I’m supposed to present myself in a certain way, but it’s hard and you’re never going to be able to tell people who you are through the media. It’s much easier for a guy to say what he wants and not to be cute and funny all the time, but, if you’re a strong sort of woman, you’re just, for lack of a better word, a bitch."
When she got goofy backstage.
When she explained why she doesn't only want to act.
"I mean, I love what I do, but it's not all I want to do - be a professional liar for the rest of my life."
When she nailed the whole "love" thing in just a few sentences.
"You don't know who you will fall in love with. You just don't. You don't control it. Some people have certain things, like, 'That's what I'm going for' and I have a subjective version of that. I don't pressure myself… if you fall in love with someone, you want to own them – but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I'm much too young to even have an answer for that question."
When she was the perfect Bella Swan.
When she was the ultimate Joan Jett.
When she responded to the comment below with, "It's totally a chick flick."
Because women-centric stories and adventure movies are not mutually exclusive, JAY.
When she showed up with this haircut, and it actually worked.
WHAT IS THIS SORCERY.
The fact that she'll wear sneakers to a premiere or event any chance she gets.
And if she doesn't show up in them, she changes into them, because she's cool like that.
When she knew the definition of feminism.
"It’s silly to play the devil’s advocate when having a conversation about female roles in Hollywood, because then you’re doing this 'reverse feminism' thing that has become weirdly trendy recently. I feel like some girls around my age are less inclined to say, 'Of course I’m a feminist, and of course I believe in equal rights for men and women,' because there are implications that go along with the word feminist that they feel are too in-your-face or aggressive… A lot of girls nowadays are like, 'Eww, I’m not like that.' They don’t get that there’s no one particular way you have to be in order to stand for all of the things feminism stands for."
And when she called out everybody who doesn't.
"That’s such a strange thing to say, isn’t it? Like, what do you mean? Do you not believe in equality for men and women? I think it’s a response to overly-aggressive types. Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn’t necessarily the one you should listen to. By our nature alone, think about what you’re saying and say it — but don’t scream in people’s faces, because then you’re discrediting us… But that being said, it’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist."
When she rocked out with a 'stache in "Just One of the Guys."
And when she tried to pretend like she didn't model her skeevy dude-swagger after Justin Bieber.
Come on. COME ON. Not only is that Bieber, that is the FULL Bieber.
When she totally owned her personal style.
...But also expressed in just a few words what's so incredibly fun about fashion.
What I love about fashion is that you find things that surprise you, that can uncover what's buried, that unleash certain aspects of yourself.
When she had smart things to say about the "strong female characters" trend.
And about the nauseating spectacle of phony empowerment.
When she handled five years of pointed questions about R-Pattz with wearied grace.
Everyone wants to know. Everyone knows already — it’s ridiculous.
When she accepted the MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss, and then made out... with herself.
Sorry, we just have to talk about the mustache one more time.
And finally, when you saw this GIF and got really excited that someone had finally crowned Kristen the Queen of the Universe (and then really disappointed that it was just from a movie.)
But let's be real, she's still Queen of the Universe. LONG MAY SHE REIGN.
