Kristen Stewart Has Advice For Anyone Wondering About Her Sexuality
Kristen Stewart has been busy promoting her upcoming stoner comedy American Ultra recently, and in addition to some hilarious late-night show stops and a thought-provoking Funny or Die interview with her costar Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen is also covering the September issue of Nylon magazine — and getting candid about her sexuality.
The actress's much buzzed-about dating life has been a mainstay since her relationship with Robert Pattinson ended in 2012, and especially since she was spotted with her current love, Alicia Cargile, late last year. In her Nylon interview, Kristen opens up about her sexual preferences and makes it clear that though she may not be confirming her romance, she isn't hiding anything, either: "Google me, I'm not hiding," she said, adding, "I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don't think it's necessary to figure out if you're gay or straight. It's like, just do your thing." Keep reading for more of Kristen's eye-opening quotes.
- On how she views herself: "If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the f*cking ambiguity of this life and I love it."
- On not defining her sexuality: "I don't feel like it would be true for me to be like, 'I'm coming out!' No, I do a job. Until I decide that I'm starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving . . . I don't. I’m just a kid making movies."
- On the future of gender fluidity: "I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing."
- On confirming her sexual preferences: "Google me, I’m not hiding."
- On her perceived personality: "It’s like I’m involved in a weekly comic book. I have this assigned personality . . . which I helped create, I suppose. People stand to make a lot of money on people like me— it’s this booming industry, so why would you go and change the character that people are paying for?"
- On dealing with photographers and media: "It’s funny when older actors are like, 'Just give them a smile.' I’m like, 'You have no idea what you’re talking about, but thanks!’' It must’ve been awesome without the Internet."
