Kristen Stewart to Take Hiatus from Acting

by at .

Kristen Stewart recently told Vanity Fair that folks don't know dick sh-t about her personal life.

But the former Twilight Saga star has now given us a look inside her professional life, telling USA Today in a new interview that she needs a break.

"I'm taking some time off because I've been working for two years," the 24-year-old said. "I'm an actor and that's my art form, and because I started that so young, I've always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create," she explained."

Stewart has been starring in films pretty much non-stop since she was 14 years old. Her first major role was opposite Jodie Foster in Panic Room.

"I'm going to take so much time off. I'm going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I'm going to make some [stuff] with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago," Stewart continued.

"I'm making a short film. I'm making a bunch of stuff. I don't know how I'll put it out. But I'm not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time."

The ex-girlfriend of Robert Pattinson says she embraces "hard work," but she could go for some alone time right about now.

"I'm somewhat OK with the isolation. At times I realize, that's so not normal. It's weird but it gives me the opportunity to do what I love."
