Kristen Stewart's Fear of Assassination

The Twilight star continues fretting about how nerve-wracking the red-carpet experience is for her

While we've poked fun at Kristen Stewart's interesting red carpet facial expressions, the star of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is admitting that there's good reason behind her seemingly less-than-thrilled reaction to the craziness of movie premieres and public appearances -- she fears her fans might kill her!

"I don't feel very comfortable on the red carpet," Stewart told Britain's Hello. "I look out there at a thousand people and I realize they could rush me and assassinate me. No security could protect me. Ostensibly they're fans, but I think about them turning on me."

The actress, who's been everywhere lately as Eclipse mania has reached new heights, says that her bouts of anxiety get so bad that she has to "keep myself from crying sometimes."

Stewart has been pretty vocal about her negative feelings on fame, but realizes that it comes with the territory.

"It's a job," she told a reporter. "It's only crazy like this at these premieres, but otherwise, I live a very normal life. I don't need anything else to ground me."
