–Kristen Stewart covers EW’s fall movie issue and talks about the growing Oscar buzz surrounding her (“You want to win, we’re all animals.

For a minute there I was like, ‘I’ll do f**king anything!’ And honestly, it was a good place to be for a minute. But I think now I’m going to be a little more careful. I think I have a better nose for what’s going to be fruitful for me personally, as an experience, if not necessarily what’s going to thrive out in the world”).
