In an interview with Nylon, Kristen Stewart has opened up about her sexuality.
Google me, I’m not hiding. 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**king ambiguity of this life and I love it.”
However, Twilight actress, who was supposedly “outed” by her mum Jules in June, says that while she isn’t hiding, this is not a “coming out”.
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.”
In the interview, Stewart also noted Miley Cyrus’ recent announcement about her gender fluidity, 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.”
I’ve worked really hard at feeling free and open while not selling it, or helping someone else sell it. 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.”
Tabloid rumours have been circulating about Stewart for some time, with many printing invasive long-lens photo of her with rumoured girlfriends.
Stewart also discusses what she feels is the public’s perception of her.
It’s like I’m involved in a weekly comic book,” she says. “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?”
