Kristen Stewart Speaks Out About Her Sexuality In Honest Interview: ‘I’m Not Ashamed And I’m Not Confused’

No big surprise here, but Kristin Stewart is one of eight stars to grace a cover of Elle magazine’ annual Women In Hollywood issue.


Not only is she one of the most accomplished young actresses in the industry with a massive fan base, but she’s also a strong woman who’s not afraid to be herself and stand up for what she believes in.

But Stewart hasn’t actually made many recent headlines as a result of this talent. Instead, she has mostly been in the news due to her love life, and the fact she is now dating a woman.

While many people have questioned her relationship with girlfriend Alicia Cargile – which she confirmed in July – Stewart has no qualms setting the record straight.

I’m not ashamed, and I’m not confused. Things have changed. And not just with me—we’re really allowed to encourage this new acceptance to develop and be awesome.”

In fact, Stewart has unabashedly gushed over her relationship in the past.


She told Elle U.K. in July,

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.'”

Previously, the Twilight actress dated her co-star Robert Pattinson, but she felt the relationship was “trivialized.”

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,” she explained. “And I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that.”

However, she feels her romance with Cargile has altered how the public perceives her, and in turn, how she perceives relationships.

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.”

Is Kristen Stewart’s Relationship With Alicia Cargile A Publicity Stunt?

Once upon a time, many years ago, a comedian by the name of Ellen DeGeneres came out as gay using the iconic ‘Puppy Episode’ of her Ellen TV show. Despite the success of Ellen, the comedian’s show went quickly down the pan and was cancelled not long after. Her truth had been her downfall and now the world was punishing for coming out.

Nowadays though, coming out can have the opposite effect. Many famous faces have come out of the closet including Wanda Sykes, Ellen Page, Wentworth Miller, Brittney Griner, Anna Paquin and so on and so forth and it hasn’t harmed their careers one bit; instead it has given them a new legion of fans who support their honesty.

However, while we hope that celebrities are coming out for the right reasons, it’s often criticised as a publicity stunt. Jessie J and Lady Gaga both came out as bisexual several years ago before changing their minds and saying they were straight after all – while it’s not unheard for people to change their minds about their sexuality and how they want to label it, the fact that they had both been so outspoken about LGBT topics made some question as to whether they’d only come out to pander and appeal to queer audiences.


Now, as people look at what’s happening with Kristen Stewart and her close ‘gal pal’ Alicia Cargile (who she is often pictured with), many are asking if they are truly in a relationship, or whether whatever’s going on between them is instead being milked by Kristen and her team for publicity.

On the one hand, a very good case can be made for Kristen doing this for publicity. Following the release of Snow White and The Huntsman (the fairy tale epic that featured Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth), it came to light that Kristen and the director of the movie, Rupert Sanders, had been having an affair. He was a married man and Kristen was still dating Robert Pattinson (her Twilight co-star) at the time and so fans and the media alike were up in arms about what a ‘dirty cheating homewrecker’ she was.


Following the scandal, Kristen’s professional career has picked up somewhat (she was recently in Still Alice with Julianne Moore) but for the most part her public persona is still in tatters and given that she was considered as ‘the moody girl who never smiles’ before the news broke, she didn’t have a lot to go off in the first place. That’s why it makes good sense for the friendship/relationship/gals being pals thing that Kristen and Alicia have going on to be for publicity.

While the media asks ‘are they or aren’t they’ and assigns various sexuality labels to the two of them, it keeps Kristen in the public eye and all she has to do is go to brunch with someone she’s close with. It’s a win win situation.


However, a strong case against it is the fact that Kristen and Alicia were already incredibly close. Before the media caught on (or took such a strong interest, as we are seeing now), Kristen and Alicia were seen hanging out around Hollywood already. How can it be a publicity stunt if she’s doing what she’s always done?

Much less, when does Kristen, a woman who has famously flipped off the paparazzi, talked about how awful it feels to be photographed and has told the media to ‘f–k off’ ever court the media’s interests? Although there is minimum work involved here, it doesn’t make a lick of sense for her to suddenly make an effort to get the press talking about her.

Perhaps it’s the plausibility of these two answers that explains why so many people are asking Kristen to come out – or just to address the situation. While celebrity culture (and our insistence on knowing everything about a star’s life) is utterly bizarre as it is, people do want answers.

Sadly though, whether Kristen and Alicia come out or just deny that anything romantic is going on between them, the media will herald her decision and talk about her some more or they’ll call her a liar with something to hide.

She can’t really win here, which is a shame, but no matter what she decides to do (or even if she decides to do nothing) there will still be plenty of fans lining up to support her.

This is awkward – Now Robert Pattinson Harassed With Questions About Kristen Stewart Sexuality

This week, Robert Pattinson arrived at LAX for a flight to London, and the actor was bombarded with questions from photographers about his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart being a lesbian – awkward

He was even asked if her sexuality “explained” why their relationship didn’t workout – low blow.

For several weeks Stewart has been dogged with reports she in a relationship with with her close pal/girlfriend Alicia Cargile. They even been seen holding hands on numerous occasions (shock horror). However, she has yet to address the rumors they’re in a romantic relationship.

Pattinson kept quiet on the subject as he made his way through the terminal, but he couldn’t help crack a smile at the craziness.




Kristen Stewart Receives Homophobic Slurs As She Walks Hand-in-hand With Alicia Cargile

At the end of last week, Kristen Stewart was captured holding hands with her friend, Alicia Cargile as she walked through LAX.

However, what was even more startling about the scene was the amount of abuse the actress got from the LAX paparazzi – who screamed ‘are you a lesbian’ along side some other obscene words.


Shock-horror – Kristen and Alicia holding hands (SplashNews)

Kristen and Alicia were returning from the wedding of Riley Keough in Napa Valley, and as this event was a social event one, and not work based outing (Alicia is Kristen’s make-up artist), speculation mounted that Alicia was there as Kristen’s plus one.

The press have been going crazy over this story for months, which Kristen has already said is a huge ‘embellishment’ on her private life. However, could this be the biggest sign yet that she is in a relationship with Alicia?

Whether or not she is, what is important, is that this whole thing be respected and not debased by an all-male-show that use as an opportunity misogynies their relationship, dis-respect, discriminate and be homophobic.

Kristen doesn’t deserve to have people screaming offensive terms at her as she walks through the airport.

We salute the way she handled things though. Taking Alicia’s hand and showing the world she doesn’t give a f*ck. Maybe its a sign that they’re in a relationship or just the actress trying to protect her friend from being pulled into the media circus that surrounds her love life.

A few years ago Kristen was a marriage wreck, now she’s cut her hair and isn’t visibly dating anyone, she’s a lesbian.

“Things blew up for me at a pretty young age, at 17 and … yeah, I love talking about the work. It’s bizarre, things become sort of like you’re selling something, and I’ve never been into that notion — I like sharing things.”

If she is in a same-sex relationship – woo hoo. It would be an inspiring coming-out story due to the sheer fact at how many people idolised her, but lets all handle this with a little bit of sensibility.


First Look At Kristen Stewart On Cover Of Wonderland

Kristen Stewart looks rather handson on the cover of Wonderland’s spring fashion issue, as she rocks her cropped haircut.


The Wonderland’s spring 2015 fashion issue hits news stands next week. In the issue, Stewart is set to appear in the issue with actress Ashley Benson and models Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin.

However expect to see more of Stewart’, as her fashion status continues to grow. She has a new gig with Chanel as well, where she joins Vanessa Paradis and Alice Dellai for Chanel’s handbag campaign, which rolls out in April.

Stewart has also been hitting the rumour mills as of late, due to the fact she is spending a lot of time with her stylist Alicia Cargile, with most pretty convinced the two are in a relationship, but this rumor remains unconfirmed.



Kristen Stewart Touches Base on Recent Tabloid Rumours

The Tabloids can’t seem to cope without going to press with a ‘new’ Kristen Stewart story. However, in a recent interview with HuffPost Live, the actress appeared to take all the rumors in stride.

The former Twilight actress (who has always attempted to keep her love life private) hit the headlines when she was spotted with ‘close friend’ Alicia Cargile on holiday.

Photos published by a number of tabloids showed the pair holding hands and snuggling on a Hawaii beach.

While talking with HuffPost Live, Stewart avoided addressing the claims directly, saying:

“There’s a whole other form of entertainment that’s just voraciously consumed in itself.”

Co-star Julianne Moore then interjects with:

“For her, especially, there’s been so much interest in Kristen for the longest time. Because of the size of the movies she’s been involved in when she was very young, it’s hard to escape that. I think that it’s also a form of entertainment. I think you have to take all that stuff with a grain of salt, and she often does.”

Why The Tabloid Obsession With Kristen Stewart and Her ‘Lez-be-Friend’ relationship?

Ever since she hit it big with the vampire series that everybody loves to hate (Twilight), Kristen Stewart’s personal life has been tabloid fodder. Headlines were made about her romance with co-star Robert Pattinson, they were made again when she appeared to have cheated on him with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman (a film that she starred in) and a fair few outlets have speculated that Kristen Stewart is gay.

Is it the fact that Kristen once said that her her first crush was Natalie Portman? Or that time on the Snow White and the Huntsman press tour when she said she wanted to make out with Charlize Theron? The reasoning is somewhat of a mystery.


However, while we were pondering the ‘why’ of the rumours, they’ve flared up once more as the actress has gone on vacation with her gal pal Alicia Cargile, leading many to assume once again that Kristen is gay and that Alicia is her girlfriend.

Kristen and Alicia (who is a visual effects producer) reportedly became close friends following Kristen’s breakup with Robert Pattinson. The timing and the fact that the two appear to be inseparable (they’re often seen together, sometimes in matching or shared clothes) has led to people thinking they’re dating.

The dating rumours are backed up by sources previously saying that “Love is love to Kristen. She’s really happy with Alicia”, “When Kristen and Alicia were in Hawaii for New Years, I am sure that they thought no one was going to see them but they are not exactly nonchalant about their relationship anymore” and “They are inseparable and mimic each other’s everything”.

So is Kristen gay? Is she straight? Is she bisexual? Well, we have no idea. Not only are those sources anonymous (or those quotes could have just been made up by the publications they came from) but Kristen is notoriously closed off about her personal life. We didn’t even get a confirmation that she was dating Robert Pattinson until they broke up years later.

Overall though, if Kristen Stewart is gay as all the tabloids would have us believe, then good for her. And if she wants to come out Ellen Page style then hey, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner.
