As it turns out, there are plenty of things the artist formerly known as Bella Swan doesn't care about: people who think she's a bad actress, making a bad film, getting involved in political discussions, and so on. She's just incredibly chill. And, if the rumors are true that her upcoming turn in Still Alice could land her an Oscar nomination, will she eviscerate Ryan Seacrest or Giuliana Rancic on the red carpet if they ask her about one of those things? Because, that would be awesome.
So, without further adieu, here are some things Stewart doesn't care about. Interviewers, take note.

"Honestly, I don’t care. It’s fine. I’m really happy doing what I’m doing. I’m sure there are a ton of people out there who would hate my movies even if they saw all those [more critically acclaimed films], just as I’m sure there are people out there who are obsessed with Twilight and say, 'I watched the series, and she completely let me down, and then I watched every one of her other movies, and I fuckin’ hate her!' And that’s cool! Just don’t watch my movies."

"I’m never really that precious about choosing projects that don’t have every sure element that is a guaranteed good experience and/or success. There’s a lot of risk involved in this job, and it doesn’t bother me. This could’ve been a terrible movie! It could’ve been awful. It’s with a first-time director. But I still would’ve gotten what I got out of it had the movie not turned out as well as it did... If I make a bad movie every once in a while, I don’t care."

3. Being A Militant Feminist
"There are a lot of women who feel persecuted and go on about it, and I sometimes am like, 'Honestly, just relax, because now you’re going in the other direction.' 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.
"Relating it to my one little avenue, people say, 'If you want to make it in the film industry as a woman, you have to be a bitch.' No, you are going to ruin any chance you have and give us a bad name. It’s the overcompensation to where our generation goes, 'Relax,' because it’s been easier for us, and because we don’t have as much of the anger, so it’s like we can’t get behind it and it’s a bit embarrassing. But that being said, it’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist."

4. Broadcasting Her Political Views
"I don’t want to talk about that shit at all. Trust me, I’m only asking for it. When it comes time to stand up and affect change, I’m not the type of person to shout from the rooftops. Just because you’re an actor and in the public eye, people think that’s how you must be. But there are other ways to do that. That’s not me."
