Finally! After months of speculation, Kristen Stewart finally confirmed that she’s dating Alicia Cargile — and she had nothing but the sweetest things to say about her girlfriend in a new interview.
“Right now, I’m just really in love with my girlfriend,” Kristen Stewart, 26, told Elle UK. Considering she and Alicia Cargile were just photographed passionately making out last week, it’s no secret who she’s talking about. “We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time, I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.'”
The ladies’ most recent reconciliation came at the Cannes Film Festival, where they were caught holding hands, just days after K.Stew split from Soko. In her Elle UK interview, the actress also admitted to feeling like she had to “hide” everything when she was dating a guy — sorry, Robert Pattinson! — but things were totally different when she got together with a girl, and she said she’s “much happier” now.
Kristen and Alicia actually started as best friends, but speculation that their friendship had turned romantic began at the beginning of 2015, when they started holding hands more and more in public. Since then, the 26-year-old’s sexuality has been a big topic of discussion in the media, but she’s mostly kept quiet about it until now.
“I’ve discovered a way to live my life and not feel like I’m not hiding at all,” she explained to ELLE earlier this month. “And I think that’s pretty apparent for anyone who cares — not that everyone does. But I think if you had been tracking it in any way, it’s more apparent that I’m more relaxed than I used to be.” She definitely does look SO happy — and we love it!
