Whoa! Kristen Stewart is looking more gorgeous than ever on the cover of the debut issue of Variety’s new redesigned format, and she really opened up about her sexuality in the May 9 interview. We have all the details of what she had to say, right here!
Kristen Stewart, 26, has an awesome philosophy on love, and “if you don’t get it,” she “doesn’t have time for you!” She explained why she’s been so sexually ambiguous in the May 9 issue of Variety, and she’s got a great reason for being so vague. Find out what it is, here!
Kristen graced the cover of the very special debut issue of Variety’s new redesign. The magazine has a whole new, more sophisticated look and feel, and Kristen displayed all of that (plus her new blonde hair) perfectly with her elegant cover, shot at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Between shots, she took some time to explain why she has been so secretive about her sexuality with fans, despite her former relationship with Soko, a female singer.
“I find the movement that’s occurring to be so important, that I want to be part of it,” she says, explaining that the LGBT movement is important to her, but refusing to use the word “gay” to describe herself in the interview with Ramin Setoodeh. “Me not defining it (her sexuality) right now is the whole basis of what I’m about,” she says. “If you don’t get it, I don’t have time for you.” You go, girl!
Something she finds very exciting and special is how young people treat the issue today. “There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool,” she gushes. “You don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself.”
When she was younger, she felt that pressure to label herself, and loves that that’s over now. “I had to have some answer about who I was. I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn’t want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate. So I was like,‘ F—k, how do I define that?’ I’m not going to. Plus, I didn’t want to f—k with other people,” she says, referring to teenagers who struggle with their sexuality. “I didn’t want to be this example: It’s so easy. I don’t want it to seem like it was stupid for them to have a hard time.” What a role model!
