Kristen Stewart finally spoke up about her relationship with girlfriend Alicia Cargile, and while the actress gushed about her happiness with the film producer, it kinda sounded like she was throwing shade to her ex, Robert Pattinson. See what she had to say!
Kristen Stewart, 26, who usually lay lows when it comes to discussing her private life, seemed to throw that trend out the window when she spoke to Elle UK for their September issue. She and film producer, Alicia Cargile, have been on and off-again for a while, and Kristen has never fully addressed the relationship — until now. She got candid about her sexuality and just revealed for the very first time that she indeed has a girlfriend. But, the the conversation got deeper, as the Café Society actress disclosed how different things are now that she’s “dating a girl,” and she even revealed how much “happier” she really is.
“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,” she explained. And we’re assuming she was referring to her ex, Robert Pattinson, 30. “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,” she explained. Adding that, “it changed when I started dating a girl,” she continued. “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.”
We can’t help but wonder if that was a low key diss to her ex, since we all know things didn’t end too amicably between the pair Kristen ended up having an affair with Rupert Sanders, which led to their untimely split.
Kristen has since moved on from her past relationship drama though. She and Alicia started out as good friends, but speculation that their friendship had turned romantic circulated at the beginning of 2015 after they were seen holding hands. The two even seemed so in love when they were spotted engaging in some adorable PDA as they shared a kiss on the streets of Los Feliz, California after a coffee date July 20!
