Twilight star Kristen Stewart has said she’s finding it hard to be suddenly famous.

The 18 year old was catapulted into the public eye when she was cast as the lead human in the cult teen vampire love story and after its release in the US last month, has found herself with a paparazzi following.

She explained recently: “I’m really not good at [being famous]. Some people are great at it. It’s like the other side of the job. I can’t believe I have to do it.

“It makes it easier because I’m really proud of the movie and I’m a fan of the book as well.”

She added that it’s worse for co-star Robert Pattinson: “It’s weird to see people mainly my age flipping out over Rob walking into the room. He shifts in his seat and they all just go crazy. It’s a little daunting.”
