Following a cheating scandal that played out in the media, Kristen Stewart is quoted talking about life in the Hollywood spotlight.
The October issue of British Vogue (available Sept. 10) features an interview with the star, though it's not known whether it took place before or after her tryst with married director Rupert Sanders was revealed.
The actress, who will soon attend the Toronto Film Festival to promote the upcoming film On the Road, is, however, candid about her public persona.
"I know if you haven't thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself, it can seem like you lack ambition," the 22-year-old actress says of how she's often perceived.

From On the Road to the dance floor!
Kristen Dunst celebrated a friend's birthday at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood on Thursday night.
Arriving around 10 p.m., the Bachelorette star glowed in a black dress and high heels as she and friends mixed vodka cocktails in the VIP area.
Dunst disappeared for a few minutes, only to return quickly with her beau Garrett Hedlund, who was dressed comfortably in a T-shirt and jeans. The couple was anything but shy about their affection, sitting closely and sharing quick kisses.

The wait is nearly over ...
Kristen Stewart has been lying low since the news broke in July that she cheated on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. But come September, she'll be on the road again – promoting her latest film, On the Road.
Stewart, 22, will be in Toronto for the International Film Festival, PEOPLE has confirmed. The festival runs from Sept. 6 through 16 and will feature a special presentation of the film, which also stars Viggo Mortensen, Garrett Hedlund and Amy Adams. Stewart plays Marylou, a recently married 16-year-old in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's book of the same name.

Shy? Not Kristen Stewart who says she didn't flinch when it came to filming the sex scenes in the long-awaited film version of Jack Kerouac's 1957 classic, On the Road.
Asked Wednesday at a Cannes Film Festival press conference about a particularly raw scene in which she – playing a character based on the freewheeling, sexually adventurous first wife of Kerouac's legendary friend, Neal Cassady – appears topless while sitting in a car seat between costars Sam Riley (in the Kerouac role) and Garrett Hedlund (in Cassady's), Stewart said she "wanted to do it."
"I love pushing. I love scaring myself," said Stewart about her portrayal of Marylou, who is based on Luanne Henderson. (Henderson, along with Kerouac, Cassady, Allen Ginsberg and Cassady's second wife, Carolyn, were among the most iconic members of the Beat Generation.) "I've always wanted to get as close to an experience as I could."

The glasses aren't new, but the curly hair sure is.
In a bit of casting against type, Daniel Radcliffe is playing Beat Generation poet Allen Ginsberg in a movie now shooting in Brooklyn Kill Your Darlings – and this is among the very first looks of the Harry Potter star in character.
The independent film tells the real-life story of the young Ginsberg's meeting fellow Beat legends Jack Kerouac (On the Road) and Lucien Carr in 1944 and of the murder of Carr's former English teacher, David Kammerer, which resulted in a sensational trial and Carr's imprisonment.
