When asked how she feels about being called "hot," Kristen replied: "I can't stand that. What does that even mean? I don’t feel hot."
The actress – who is dating her 'Twilight Saga' co-star Robert Pattinson –gets self conscious of people when she is out in public, although she admits she would do the same if she saw a celebrity in the street.
She told Closer magazine: "I have to pick and choose where I'm going. I have can become very reclusive. Sometimes I'm like, 'Oh, I can't deal with anything right now, I can't see anybody.'
"I know what I'm like, and if I knew that an actor was nearby, I'd be interested.
"I'm a people watcher and I'd definitely choose that person to watch. It's human nature to look at others and everyone is the same. So for a while I was definitely a bit self conscious."
