After working for "like, a solid two years," Kristen Stewart is taking a break from Hollywood, she said Monday, to let herself recover mentally.

"I need to breathe," confessed the Still Alice actress, 24, who says it's been a great run for her career, but "I want to stay home for a while."

With Alicia Cargile? That seems like a safe assumption in some fortm, but the Twilight Saga star was asked what she does in her spare time.

"Like, physical things," she said. "You can say one thing about a detail of your life and it expands like wildfire. Like, 'Oh, so you're a painter now!'"

"I'm like, 'Not at all, I'm like in middle school art class in my garage, basically.' I've done, like, six paintings. I just enjoy doing something different."

Stewart also says she's an avid cook. "If you can name it, I can make it," Kristen said. "I think I'm a good cook. I love food. I'm like a total foodie."

Stewart also discussed what it was like to work alongside her Still Alice costar, SAG Awawrd and Golden Globe winner Julianne Moore.

In the acclaimed movie, Moore plays an author diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's, and Stewart portrays her young adult daughter.

"I've known her for a number of years," Stewart said of Moore. "Sometimes you can play something and it's so within your natural realm."

"Ugh... she could be my mom. It was not difficult to look at her and experience every level of fear. I wanted to give her the skin off my back."

"I wanted to do anything I could to help her, support her.”

Moore, meanwhile, gushed about Stewart in a memorable SAG Awards speech on Sunday night, calling her "magnificent and sensitive."
