After trying to keep her love life with ex Robert Pattinson out of the spotlight a decade ago, Kristen Stewart is opening up about her sexuality.
Kristen Stewart, who is featured on the October cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK, is no stranger to being out. The Twilight star has been spotted and photographed doing everyday normal things with the women she dates, from making out in public to holding hands, and even things as mundane as going to the store for dog food together.
And now, thanks to her interview with Harper’s Bazaar, it’s easy to see that Kristen Stewart made a very clear choice to be herself openly.
According to Stewart, she was once told that she should not make her romantic relationship with a woman public, if she was hoping to secure a big role. While she doesn’t identify who said it, Stewart had someone say, “If you just do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.”
But this actress decided that was not the way that she wanted to live her life, saying “I don’t want to work with people like that.” So she traded the possibility of landing a superhero gig in favor of just being herself and enjoying her life.
The actress says that she doesn’t identify as a lesbian, or even as bisexual. Instead, Stewart says she doesn’t like labels. She finds delight in being fluid, and waking up as a different person every day. “We’re all becoming incredibly ambiguous,” Stewart says during the interview. “And it’s this really gorgeous thing.”
Stewart can accept that she has become a sort-of advocate for that ambiguity, and she says that she does not mind. If she is able to make the conversation about sexuality easier for anyone, it makes her happy. She also admits that she couldn’t care less about the impact that her sexuality might have on her career.
Regardless of her openness concerning her sexuality, Stewart has been nothing short of successful in her career. Her latest return to the big screen is with Charlie’s Angels, because she was compelled to work with director Elizabeth Banks. It is set to hit theaters on November 15th.
