Is Kristen Stewart an "outsider"?

Breaking Dawn actress Kristen Stewart is being called an "outsider." It's not by her fans or her haters... it's by her director of On the Road, her new flick. However, director Gerald Nicosia wasn't singling her out, nor was he trying to insult her. In fact, it was kind of a compliment.
"They're all very unconventional in their own lives. If you're an outsider, you understand what counterculture is about," he explained. On the Road is all about counterculture, and Nicosia needed to find people who just got it. Evidently Kristen Stewart got it and she was technically the star of the show.
Many people would agree that Stewart is an outsider. She's very bland (in a good way), awkward, and unconventional, which was necessary to take part in On the Road. Her characteristics also helped her play Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga because she needed to exemplify someone who just didn't fit in right.
