Kristen 'overwhelmed' by awards

Kristen Stewart says she isn't a pro at awards events
Kristen Stewart says she isn't a pro at awards events

Kristen Stewart confessed she thought being named Woman Of The Year at 19 was "insane".

The Twilight actress scooped the Orange Rising Star Award at the Baftas on Sunday, then picked up another prestigious gong at the Elle Style Awards on Monday night.

She said: "You go from the Baftas to the Elle Style Awards winning Woman Of The Year at 19 which is just an insane concept so I am pretty overwhelmed."

Kristen insisted she is no pro at awards events.

She admitted: "I would never get used to something like that. A room full of people that you are so overwhelmingly... admiration isn't even a word that's enough. It's like there's such an overwhelming respect for everyone in the room and you feel so small, not in a bad way, it puts such an extreme dose of perspective to stand up there and speak to these people. Especially having won something amongst a group of people that I think had the best performances. Of our generation I really think they are the s**t so I was a little overwhelmed.

"It's something that is truly humbling and it's such an honour."

And despite being excited to see her heroine Kate Winslet at the Baftas, Kristen didn't speak to her.

She said: "I remained invisible, which was my intention."

Speaking about her style, she said: "I never know what I'm going to wear until five minutes before I go somewhere. I guess I know what I'm comfortable in, I don't know how to describe that. You put it on and you either go 'No way' or 'Let's go'."
