The Twilight actress graces the cover of next month's Elle Magazine and she's looking a bit brighter than usual. Thank God!

I'm not really buying her in that outfit - like she'd ever wear that in real life! - with the pink print in the background. But interestingly, Kristen Stewart comments on her constantly awkward appearance:

    "People say that I’m miserable all the time. It’s not that I’m miserable, it’s just that somebody’s yelling at me...I literally, sometimes, have to keep myself from crying...It’s a physical reaction to the energy that’s thrown at you."

I find it hard to believe that everyone is yelling at K. Stew 24/7! She also claims to "like being by myself." Shocker! At least she looks a lot more comfortable in the sexy emo outfit below:
