In a cover story for the September issue of Nylon, Kristen Stewart addresses her sexuality — or if not her own, then sexuality in general, anyway.
“Google me, I’m not hiding,” Stewart said, when asked if she was prepared to confirm or clarify her sexual preference. “I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”
Rumors about Stewart’s sexuality have grown louder since her mother, Jules, expressed her support of her daughter’s relationship with Alicia Cargile in June. (Jules later denied making such comments.) In the Nylon interview, the “bridge-burningly, disarmingly honest” Stewart offered no comment about her relationship with Cargile, but spoke rather obliquely about what it means to come out and the challenge of having a personal life as a celebrity.
“If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it,” the Twilight star says. “But I am an actress, man. I live in the f—ing ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving… I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.”
