Kristen Stewart has realised she can't control who she loves.

The 23-year-old star, who split from British actor Robert Pattinson in May 2013 after they struggled to move past her ''momentary indiscretion'' with her 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director, Rupert Sanders, in August 2012, admits she has learnt a lot about herself over the past few months.

The 'Twilight Saga' star told the March issue of US Marie Claire magazine: ''You don't know who you will fall in love with. You just don't. You don't control it. Some people have certain things, like, 'That's what I'm going for,' and I have a subjective version of that. I don't pressure myself... if you fall in love with someone, you want to own them - but really why would you want that. You want them to be what you love.''

The brunette beauty learnt to embrace a more relaxed approach to life when she went on trip with a few of her female friends to New Orleans, Louisiana shortly after her split from Robert, 27, last summer.

Explaining that she no longer tries to plan everything, she said: ''I mean, at this point, I can't even tell you if I want to hang out on Saturday.''

But Kristen hopes to have children in the future because she had such a happy childhood.

She said: ''I had it too good, to not have that, too. If I were to put money on it, definitely, yeah. But you earn that, like, that's so not here yet.''
