While "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart has been receiving extra attention recently because of her admitted affair with her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders, and her public apology to boyfriend and "Twilight" husband Robert Pattinson, she told EW a few weeks ago at Comic-Con in San Diego how she feels about being in the public spotlight:

“People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem like they are on and interesting and engaged. I care way more about the people standing in the room. I don’t want anyone leaving and saying, ‘God, that girl is so fake.’ People tell me to make it easier on myself and to play a character when I go out on carpets and stuff. But you know what? I’d rather be me.”

Despite her relationship troubles, do you think K-Stew is living up to being real?

In other news ... Fashionista-singer-new mom Jessica Simpson's father, Joe Simpson, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to E! News. A spokewoman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the incident, which took place on Aug. 4 in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
