The 26-year-old actress stepped out with her Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, last week in New York City. She opened up about the pressures of being a celebrity girlfriend, keeping their relationship a secret and their upcoming wedding.

She’s Got Pressure From Above And Below

“I’ve got thousands of people telling me what to do, and I can’t do anything other than what they want me to do,” she said. “That’s the way it is.”

Stewart is aware that she’s being bombarded with requests and doesn’t have much freedom of choice, especially since she has a spouse who is also a famous person. But she’s determined to keep the romance going, even if it’s just for the cameras.

“I’m not going to let other people dictate my life,” she said. “I mean, it would be nice if people would leave us alone, but they don’t.”

She added: “So many people have something to say about us, whether it’s good or bad, and it doesn’t matter at all. What matters is what we think about each other. So, I’m constantly thinking about him and his opinion of me. It’s been unbelievably stressful.”
