She said of Davis:

Oh my god… did you see her come out of jail? Honestly, it makes me so deeply uncomfortable. I feel really bad for her.

Anyone who’s so closed off to things that are so apparent? Imagine what else she’s missing out on in life.

I’m not making any grand statements about her personally, but if something so glaringly obvious… it’s like, ‘Oh, buddy, that must suck’.

That fear of the unknown cripples people, breeds hate, and it’s just very sad.”

This summer, the actress briefly opened up about her sexuality with Alicia Cargile, referencing tabloid stories by saying: “Google me, I’m not hiding.”

Stewart also said it is “crazy” that people still believe that the LGBT community should be denied the right to love.

She said:

Abso-f**king-lutely, it is crazy. It’s weird because if you’re overtly emotional about anything, people discredit what thought you might be contributing, because anything overtly emotional can be viewed as a weakness.

It’s interesting what you’re saying about how now we’re trying to suppress emotions or irregularities with drugs and deem people controllable by meds, because I think we’re more in tune and more honest with our emotions now than we have ever been.

You think about your grandparents or their grandparents, and you think about the patriarch of the family never showing emotion—with women, too.

As we’ve gotten past that, the meds have upped. It’s bizarre. The two things don’t really go together.”
