And perhaps there is only one director who can help her accomplish this: Mexico's Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu.
She not only declared herself a fan of his work, but also said she was very interested to work in on of his next movies.
"I would love to work with González Iñárritu, and I want to do that soon." Kristen said yesterday in an interview in England during the press junket of the film 'Snow White and the Huntsman', which will premiere in Mexico on June 1.
"I believe he makes very intense movies, full of emotion, with a very strong message, and the feeling that the characters reflect is also very intense and I want to experience something like that."
And so strong is the admiration that Kristen has for directors as González Iñárritu, that she also expressed her desire in being a director herself.
"I want to make movies, it's one of my biggest wishes," she said.
And even not having a specific project, she already has some ideas for short films.
"You're working everyday with directors so talented in what they do, following their instructions and you're having so much contact with them, that you start to like that job very much," said the actress.
Kristen has had the opportunity to work alongside filmmakers like Bill Condon, director of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the latter yet to be released. The actress also began working in the first film of the franchise with director Catherine Hardwicke, who in 2003 directed the critically acclaimed film Thirteen.
And although Kristen considered that she still has a long way to go, she is ready to take her time, without forcing anything.
"My ambition is a bit rare, because I don't want to force anything, I want everything to happen naturally and I'm sure that with time I'll be able to work as a director," she said.
In her next movie, Snow White and The Huntsman, Robert Pattinson's girlfriend will play the lead character of this new adaptation brought to the big screen by Rupert Sanders.
In this epic adventure, full of action and special effects, she plays the young woman that, having an inocence and unmatched beauty, is chased by the evil queen, Ravenna, played by Charlize Theron.
"What I like most in this character is that she has a very delicate nature, but she also has a lot of strenght, integrity and feeling," said Kristen.
