Kristen Stewart's personal and professional life has been like a roller coaster for the last several years, but the notoriously shy actress has managed to survive these rough times seemingly without effecting her career, and this may be because she is confident with who she is.

Stewart says she is an "intense weirdo"

During a new interview with CR Fashion Book, the 'Twilight' star covered an array of personal topics including her own opinions of herself and what she is attracted to.

"For me, the most attractive thing in a person is drive - genuine impulse expressed for the sake of it, not for perception," she told the publication. "It's a compulsion, and I share that. It's indescribable. It's just a burn. You can sense it pretty instantly, this innate curiosity, because not everyone has it. That's what I'm f**king attracted to."

Stewart added, "If you meet someone who fuels you, or say you're in a room and someone walks in and they got that vibration, people want it. The vibrating person is always the most attractive."

The 24-year-old actress, who starred in independent films such as 'Clouds of Sils Maria' and 'Camp X-Ray' last year, never contemplates what the public may think of her as she is happy with what kind of person she is.

"I do not approach my life tactfully at all," she said. "I'm incredibly impulsive and I am definitely an intense weirdo. I love living and I love people. They trip me out and I want to know more about them all the time. That isn't something I can turn off and on."

And as for Stewart's growing success, she believes confidence often leads to a great performance in front of the camera.

"You definitely have to be somewhat of a self-involved person to create anything," she explained. "Most creative people are pretty aware they are a little self-obsessed, but in order to f**king have faith in yourself and make confident work, you have to be a little crazy and believe in yourself enough to just do it."
