The 25-year-old star is among the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood and has revealed the secret to her career success, explaining how she completely commits herself to each role she takes on.
She shared: "When you feel like you're gonna die is when you feel the most alive.
"I feel as though I might actually spontaneously combust sometimes and just not be able to go on."
Although her approach may sound unhealthy, Kristen insisted it's exactly the mindset she wants to be in while on set
She told the 'Awards Chatter' podcast: "I trust myself a little bit more. When I was a little bit younger, I used anxiety and nerves, which I still have a lot of. It's just that I'm better at channeling. them. I get better every time I do a job."
Kristen also revealed how she selects the roles she takes on.
She said: "I'm genuinely just drawn to material that's moving
"Recently I've been into slightly more diagonal sort of, a little less straight down the line, in terms of story, and those are always a little bit less commercial."
