Kristen Stewart ‘Not Hiding’ Her Sexuality

Kristen Stewart, star of the upcoming stoner-action flick (yes, that’s totally a genre) American Ultra has nabbed Nylon’s September issue cover. The corresponding editorial, penned by Margaret Wappler, is a raw, candid look into Stewart’s day-to-day life, including her distaste for fame, the gossip-mongering it inspires, and even her oft-discussed sexuality.

Following her longtime relationship with Twilight costar Robert Pattinson, Stewart, 25, has been rumored to be dating visual effects producer (and constant K-Stew companion) Alicia Cargile. But while the actress didn’t confirm her interest in women—she definitely didn’t deny it.

When asked about her dating preferences, Stewart said, vaguely (yet also epically), “Google me, I’m not hiding.”

But that doesn’t mean she’s ready to define herself or her loved ones now or ever. “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,” she says. “But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking 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.”

She hopes and believes that, as our society becomes more progressive, her way of life won’t be such a fascination. “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.”

  1. ‘Google me, I’m not hiding.’
    Epic response.
    This kind of unperturbed reaction to the question of sexuality is one you can only find in developed societies. Which way Naija?
