Kristen Stewart says relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson wasn’t real life

Kristen Stewart

After starring in the popular Twilight Saga, Kristen Stewart has been a regular in the spotlight. However, the actress tells T magazine she felt uncomfortable regarding the attention towards her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

“People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product. It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me,” she revealed about her former relationship.

“It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”

It wasn’t even until recently that she felt comfortable enough to confirm that she’s dating visual-effects producer Alicia Cargile. “I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive,” she said.

While being a star brings attention, she says that her feelings towards fame are “no longer negative or fear-based,” adding, “It’s not that they make you stronger or calloused — but they do make you a human.” ~Natalia Makarski

    I know it’s not PC to label anybody’s sexuality anymore, but I’m really curious… is she full gay now?

    She’s happy with her girlfriend now, and Rob is happy with FKA twigs. Leave it at that.
    She looks great in the pic, by the way!

    “once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive” WHAT? Cause dating guys is negative?

    no matter what her sexuality is – she’s a crummy actress.

    I wonder if Rob Pattison feels the same way….. oh wait, she cheated on him with the director of the Huntsman. Pleeeeease; if being with guys is negative, why was she sleeping around with so many of them? I really hope that with being with a girl, she can slap some sense into Kristen. Sometimes you just need a female touch to do such

    She didn’t say dating men was a negative thing. She’s talking about representing LGBT rights. And what difference does it make if she is “full gay” or not?

    I guess by cheating on Patterson and hurting him deeply made it more real to her. Didn’t she start dating Patterson during twilight production before the fame began. If so, this would imply that fame had nothing to do with how her relationship with Patterson ended up.
    I wonder…if she hadn’t cheated on Patterson, that caused them to break up, would she still be a lesbian today. Or did the negative impact that the rupture caused on her life and career cause her to explore this direction.

    I think sometimes when actors are together alot to film a movie they are naturally drawn to each other. The fame of “Edward” probably made him more attractive. When that started to wear off she started to wander to the next guy or gal that paid attention to her. I could never figure out what her appeal was supposed to be on the Twilight series, she never smiles, does not appear that attractive.
    She will probably dump this girl when the next thing comes along!

    Lets not apply a double standard to women who date a lot of men. Men do it and they are seen as desirable. She’s not the first to”change teams”, so to speak either. She is bisexual and seems comfortable with it.

    So if she was dating a black guy now or a Hispanic or native American would it then be a positive thing she would want to talk about even if its a guy, so as to promote harmony among the races? Just saying…see how dumb she sounds now?

    She’s mentally ill. And making a choice to date women doesn’t mean she is gay, just means she is making a choice to date them.

    I’m your personal life – do whatever makes you happy. You have one life. Choose to be Happy. and then, in your professional life, please make me happy and get another job. You are a horrible actress.

    There’s no such thing as “full gay”, even people who identify themselves as “homosexual” often have sexual fantasies and yes, even sexual relationships with members of the opposite sex. It’s a bit more fluid for women then it is men, but to think of sexual orientation as categorical is more of a “political” reality then it is a “biological” reality.

    That relationship was fake from the get go. She’s been gay her whole life, whether or not she wants to admit it publicly.

  14. Summer • December 22, 2016 @ 10:06 PM

    I disagree with Doug. I don’t think there’s any such thing as bisexuality. People who say they’re bi are gay, they just don’t want to come out and admit it. And there are far too many people thinking, could I be happy with someone of the same sex? When they’re not geared to be gay. They just force themselves to experiment because it’s the “in” thing now. We’re allowed to be perverts and no one can judge us. Sodom and Gomorrah. Let the rains begin.
