Is Kristen Stewart a Bad Role Model?

by at . Comments

Stop us if you've heard this before:

A popular Twilight Saga star has posed for a magazine with a cigarette prominently on display. He/she looks happy to be smoking it, causing a growing controversy over one's freedom of personal choice versus one's responsibility to a large, young fan base.

No, we're not referring to Robert Pattinson. That actor was photographed puffing away in January, during a shoot with Wonderland magazine. In a poll of THG readers, 41% thought Rob was setting a bad example.

But this time we're talking about Pattinson's likely girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. She's the cover girl for the April issue of Flaunt and is surrounded by smoke in the photo from it below:

Once again, sides will be drawn on this topic. Smoking is perfectly legal and who is anyone to tell Kristen what to do with her lungs?

But isn't she also a role model for millions of teenagers, whether she wants to be or not? If she was caught with a sex tape, would we argue that it was a legal act and she was free to use her vagina as she sees fit?

Sound off on this question now: Is Stewart setting a bad example by smoking in a magazine?

 

Debate this issue and check out two more pics of Kristen from Flaunt below.

This is a stupid topic. I mean she is 20 years old now and clearly above 18 so she can do what ever she wants. Thats why we have parents to tell us what is right from wrong in life. We dont have to follow in "celebrities" foot steps. That would make you only naive and a follower to everyone.

well, it is definitely her style. i mean, she didn't ask for being loved by 12,13 year-old girls. So does she need to give a good example? An, btw smoking isn't so negative as sex-tapes - smoking is normal, morally corect, in contrast to sex-tapes.

Kristen is 20 years old. It is Not her responsibility to worry about being a role model.It is the parent's responsibility to instill values long before they had assess to Kristen as a performer.Kristen has been on the scene only a few years,and at 20 years old,evidently she feels comfortable being photographed with a cigarette.There is such a thing as parental guidance when it comes to our children,if that value has already been instilled,Kristen Stewart will Not be a threat to their innocence.
