Kristen Stewart Talks Living Her Life Without ‘Hiding’

Kristen Stewart: 'I don't try to keep my personal life private anymore'

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kristen Stewart got candid about her personal life and how she has “relaxed” her approach on exposing her relationships to the public eye.

The Twilight star is known for being fiercely private about her personal life, going out of her way to keep her relationships out of the public eye as much as possible.

However, as she has gotten older, the 26-year-old has become more relaxed about what does and doesn’t make it into the headlines, because people’s comments about her lifestyle don’t hold much weight with her.

Elaborating on her change of heart, the beauty explained:

I wouldn’t talk about who I [have sex with] and how I [have sex with them] unless I was friends with you. That’s weird. But then, at the same time, I’ve discovered a way to live my life and not feel like I’m hiding at all. And I think that’s pretty apparent for anyone who cares — not that everyone does. But I think that if you had been tracking it in any way, it’s more apparent that I’m more relaxed than I used to be.”

The comments come just a few days after Stewart was spotted smooching her longtime girlfriend Alicia Cargile in L.A.

While Stewart has been pretty open with her recent romances (how could anyone forget her whirldwind PDA tour with Soko?), she has never previously addressed her change in demeanour in such a specific way to the press before.

Somehow, as I got older, I reoriented my mind. I’ve gotten better at assessing people’s motivations. It’s not something I have to overtly think about – what I share and what I don’t share. It’s a natural thing. Whereas, when I was younger, I was like, ‘You’re gonna screw me over.’ Now I’m like, ‘Whatever. You can’t.'”
