Kristen Stewart is a fan favorite on the silver screen, and everywhere she goes a media blitz follows. By now, one would think she’s become used to the limelight; however, public speaking still seems to be nerve-racking for the Twilight superstar. From her BAFTAs speech to past live appearances, OK! takes a look at some of Kristen’s most awkward on-air moments.
K-Stew finds comfort in scratching her head, playing with her hair and sitting hunched over (while simultaneously rocking back and forth at times) during live appearances or acceptance speeches.
These actions have become part of Kristen’s on-air routine.
It’s hard to blame Kristen for her anxious nature — after all, Twi-hards are some of the most serious fans out there, and all the attention must be overwhelming.
Kristen’s big night at the BAFTAs is a perfect example of one of her awkward acceptance speeches. She won the Orange Rising Star award and timidly accepted the honor onstage.
MAY 2009: Kristen’s BAFTA speech was an improvement from last year’s MTV Movie Awards, where Kristen dropped her golden popcorn bucket for Best Female Performance in Twilight!
Our favorite part is the adorable look on Robert Pattinson‘s face (51-second mark) as he laughs at Kristen.
