The Ellen DeGeneres Show featured Kristen Stewart on Thursday with the host grilling her on herTwilight years.

“It was something I really invested in. It mattered to so many people,” Stewart told DeGeneres. “Something personal became not the most personal thing, which is awesome because to share that is great, but at the same time I was 17 or 18 when it all kind of went down, and that’s the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird [time].”

Moving out of her comfort zone, Stewart is now involved in six smaller films set for release this year. See the interview below as Stewart talks about hair extensions and her grasp of the French language.
