AceShowbiz - Kristen Stewart has dated both men and women, but never really defined her sexuality. The 29-year-old actress recently talked about having "this huge responsibility" to label her sexuality following her fame in the "Twilight" franchise.
During an interview with the Associated Press alongside co-star Laura Dern on Tuesday, May 30, the "JT LeRoy" star shared, "Being someone who had been asked that question over and over and over, I felt this huge responsibility, like one that I was really genuinely worried about. If I wasn't able to say one way or the other, then was I sort of like forsaking a side." She continued, "The fact that you don't have to now is, like, so much more truthful."
The "Personal Shopper" star also revealed that she was happy that young people nowadays are becoming more comfortable with sexuality label and being gender fluid. "If you were to have this conversation with someone like in high school, they'd probably like roll their eyes and go, 'Why are you complicating everything so much?' Just sort of do what you want to do," she said. "Man, I was gunning for that for a long time. So like God, thank you kids, lead the way. It's really nice."
"Whether or not you like girls or boys doesn't even begin to describe who you are on the inside. For that vocabulary to be the only way to describe... I just feel like we don't even have the words to describe the complexities of identity right now," she added.
Stewart was once in a high-profile relationship with "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson in 2013, before they broke up following her shocking affair with director Rupert Sanders. She later dated several women including visual effects artist Alicia Cargile, French singer Soko, musician Annie Clark a.k.a. St. Vincent and Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell. Stewart is currently romantically linked with Sarah Dinkin.
Although Stewart has never publicly defined her sexuality, she said that she was "like, so gay," during her monologue on "Saturday Night Live" back in 2017.
