Kristen Stewart is ‘really in love’ with Alicia Cargile

By Tribute on July 28, 2016 | 10 Comments

Kristen Stewart and girlfriend Alicia CargileNearly two years after rumors began to swirl about their relationship, Kristen Stewart has officially confirmed she is dating Alicia Cargile.

In a new interview with Elle UK, the 26-year-old actress opened up for the first time about her on-and-off romance with her former assistant.

“Right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend,” the César Award winner said. “We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.'”

Kristen, who famously dated her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson for five years, has made an effort to remain mum on her relationship status — until now.

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

“But then 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.”

This is a major progression for the movie star, especially compared to her interview with Variety back in May, where she stated that while she’s not “hiding sh*t” from the media, her personal life is not something she would ever discuss.

“When I was dating a guy, I would never talk about my relationships. I feel the same way now,” she said. “Me not defining it right now is the whole basis of what I’m about. If you don’t get it, I don’t have time for you.”

Speculation about the two lovebirds began back in January 2015 when photos were released of Kristen kissing Alicia on a beach in Hawaii. And while the Café Society actress notoriously hates the paparazzi and talking about her life outside of movies, she also told Variety that she doesn’t mind if photos of her and Alicia get published because it’s an important message to send to her young fans.

“As much as I want to protect myself, it’s not about hiding. As soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that’s not honest,” she said. “I definitely found where I’m comfortable. I don’t take credit for that.” ~Shelby Morton

    Good for her. Maybe this is what she’s been searching for.

    Finally! She’s out of the closet. Everyone knew she was gay. she could pretend to be with guys but no one was buying it

    Who cares what Kristen has to say this week? She is a 26 year old airhead who is so completely self-absorbed she lost touch with reality long ago. Some people can handle fame and some can’t. She is clearly in the latter group. It always makes me laugh that these idiots dream of stardom, and then when they become famous they bitch and moan about the paparazzi & what a pain it is to be famous. Don’t worry Kristen, the fame won’t last that long for you sweetie. No matter how many men / women / various animals you date, you still can’t act worth shit. When you get caught cheating on this one, maybe you should date a tranny, you haven’t tried that flavor yet……

    NOt surprised she’s a lesbian…it was pretty obvious…she always looked awkward trying to dress n look feminine

    Ouch @ James Butler…Kristen dating animals? I’m sorry but I find that offensive whether the girl can act or not. Now I see why so many people keep their personal lives to themselves! You have done no favors for any of us who are “hetero-sexual” but try to understand and love our brothers and sisters who are not.

    As long as they are happy and not hurting anyone more power to them – who cares if you are gay straight or bi – love is love and so many people want and search for it and are never happy – so leave them be. As an actress I cannot abide her, but as a human I say live and let live

  9. Leanne • August 14, 2016 @ 3:27 PM

    It would suck to waste 5 years with someone who’s preference runs to the same gender.

  10. Summer • December 22, 2016 @ 10:08 PM

    Yes Leanne. What she did to Rob Pattinson is abysmal. She’s a wretched human being and does not “deserve to be happy.” She deserves to be miserable. Has she ever even apologized properly to him without expecting anything from him? I doubt it.
