In a hilarious speech at her Hollywood Walk of Fame acceptance, the 39-year-old said she was grateful for her "suspiciously lucky" career and the people who have helped her along the way.
She then revealed the influential advice that Cher gave her while they filmed Burlesque together back in 2010, which she's now labelled "The Cher Test".
“She said, ‘If it doesn’t matter in five years, it doesn’t matter,’” Kristen said.
Being ghosted by some douchey dude? Won't matter in five years. Not getting that job you wanted? You probs won't care about that either. But Kristen explains it's not necessarily about the bad stuff you shouldn't put on a pedestal.
Watch the hilarious speech below...
“To be honest, perhaps too honest—in a way that might make my publicist have some clean-up tomorrow—this moment here doesn’t necessarily pass The Cher Test,” she added. “When I’m on my deathbed, I don’t think I’ll be thinking about this ceremony. Because as wonderful as this recognition feels in the moment, I know that it’s only temporary.”
Kristen says the more "permanent" things are the times that her dad listened to her practice her arias at ungodly hours, when her mother took her to her first audition, and the first time she heard her Frozen co-star Idina Menzel sing (which, BTW, is like a "baby who had experienced rain for the first time").
