Never one to divulge too much about her personal life, Kristen Stewart made a surprise move when she confirmed she’s in a relationship with Alicia Cargile in her cover story for the August 2016 issue of ELLE UK magazine.
Furthermore, states Stewart, “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. 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.”
