Kirsten Stewart is now more open about her private life for a good reason. In spite of being highly successful in the movie industry, gaining popularity way back in her role as Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room (2002), she’s always been secretive, shying away from the general public.
She always comes across as mysterious even to staffs on set. When she met ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson when the two filmed the vampire romance movie Twilight in 2008 they have kept their relationship a secret for a long time.
It was only on 2012 that she confirmed her relationship with Pattinson after a number of eyewitness accounts and photographs of the couple had surfaced. Then they broke up after she apologized for cheating on him with a movie, director Rupert Sanders.
The majority of the time, fans are kept wondering what Kirsten Stewart may be up to in her personal life, but now she’s changing that, and she’s telling more.
In an interview with Elle UK, Kirsten Stewart opens up about Alicia Cargile, a movie producer, saying, “I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time, I was like, finally, I can feel again.”
While there were rumors about Stewart and Pattinson spotted together in L.A. with a possibility that the two may be back together, it seems the two merely remains good friends. Their chemistry has not worn off at all.
Stewart says she prefers dating women more than men. She’s crazy about Alicia Cargile.
“When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, 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.” Stewart said.
“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.”
She remains mum regarding her sexuality, as more of a way for her to override expectations of being straight, in contrast to LGBTQ not being the norm.
