During Kristen’s live interview Oct 18 discussing the new Balenciaga fragrance, she appeared self-critical and disapproving of herself, says top body language expert Patti Wood. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details on how Kristen really feels about herself.
World-renowned body language expert Patti Wood, who recently released her new book SNAP – Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language and Charisma, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Kristen’s behavior during the interview indicates that she didn’t feel like she was doing a very good job. She was self-comforting throughout the entire Q & A.”
“Several times Kristen put her index finger up to her bottom lip where there are tons of sensitive nerve endings. This gesture would stimulate endorphins, thus making her feel more at ease. She also touches her chin, almost rubbing it showing that she feels very uneasy and unsure of herself,” said Patti.
“Kristen also feels the need to protect herself which is why she brushes the outside arm with her inside arm. This shows she wants to protect herself from the camera, the public. At one point, Kristen twists her head and brings her chin down and then sucks in her lips, again indicating that she is very uncomfortable, typically a shame gesture. She also touches her ear, another indication that she feesl like she isn’t doing a very good job.”
“The rocking and running like motion of her foot is symbolic of running away from the interview. And the clicking sound she often makes when she finishes a sentence is a combination of disapproval and comforting herself.”
“Kristen is trying really hard but feels like she is coming up short. If she had to grade herself on how well she did during the interview, she would have most likely given herself a ‘D’.”
“Overall, it makes sense that Kristen would feel uptight and insecure because this is one of the first times she is talking in public since the whole cheating scandal on Robert Pattinson. She’s probably feeling judged and perhaps even thinking about Rob at times during the interview and wondering what her fans are thinking about the whole situation.”
“For future interviews, I would advise Kristen to feel more comfortable and she can achieve this in different ways. I would suggest she wear clothing that is LESS revealing. I would suggest that she cover up her upper arms and lower legs a bit more so she doesn’t feel so exposed. I would have her do some positive self-talk prior any interviews. It’s also important for her to connect with the interviewer. She can do this by shaking hands or doing a kiss on both cheeks– something to show they are connected. This will help Kristen’s fans feel like they too are connected with her.”
