Kristen Stewart was in Cannes over the weekend…with Alicia Cargile. Yes, her ex girlfriend of like two years Alicia Cargile. That 90’s tomboy dream Alicia Cargile. The assistant-turned lover Alicia Cargile. Alicia got an invite to Cannes, and she walked the carpet (for a moment) with Kristen, at the premiere of American Honey. It was widely believed that the two broke up late last year, and honestly there was probs some overlap with Alicia and Kristen’s end and Kristen and Soko. Whatever intense and probably clingy stuff happened between Kristen and Soko is over now, and KStew wants people to know that she’s back with Alicia. So there it is!
Meanwhile, Kristen and her PR people are doing their darndest to not say anything about Woody Allen while at Cannes, so Kristen has talked about dumber stuff, like Twilight, hair bleach and heels.
Why she bleached her hair: “I just did like five movies over a two-year period, and I think it’s a very good decision for me right now to stop acting in movies for just a moment, and I’ve never really done that, I’ve never changed my appearance. I’ve always really stayed neutral since I was like 10 years old, so I was like, ‘I’m gonna direct a short, and I’m gonna f–k up my hair.’”
The Cannes high-heels policy: “Things have to change immediately. It has become really obvious that if [a man and I] were walking the red carpet together and someone stopped me and said, ‘Excuse me, young lady, you’re not wearing heels. You cannot come in.’ Then [I’m going to say], ‘Neither is my friend. Does he have to wear heels?’ It can work both ways. It’s just like you simply cannot ask me to do something that you are not asking him. I get the black-tie thing but you should be able to do either version—flats or heels.”
How Twilight affected her: “I got really exceedingly famous at 17, and at 17 you don’t really know how to interact with more than a couple of people. You’re trying to figure it out. Who are you? What do I seem like? Can I affect that? Should I think about that? So then when it’s thrust at you and that conversation is owned by the masses and not just you or the closest people to you it kickstarts this weird thought process that is really unnatural…[I] just really shut down. I was so guarded. And that really doesn’t provide a fully- lived life. There are ways to interact with media and there are ways to interact with the public and, beyond that, just human beings. Because those are all very different things.”
Hey, good on your to bleach your hair, KStew. It looks better than Taylor Swift‘s current bleach job, so that’s a win.
