Kristen Stewart opened up to Elle magazine about her relationship with girlfriend Alicia Cargile in a casually blunt interview. Stewart, who has never officially “come out” as bisexual, but hasn’t hid it either, also talked about her past relationship with Robert Pattinson.
“I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend,” she told the magazine. “We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again’.”
“When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier’.”
Last year, when asked about her sexuality, the movie star told Nylon magazine “Google me. I’m not hiding.”
