Kristen Stewart covers September’s ELLE looking, well, very KStew. Come on, we get it. She’s grungy high fashion. Yawn. Next?
On her positive outlook: ‘I obviously hope everything going on right now will work out, but I am confident that life is good and I’ll be OK whatever happens. So in moments when that is cloudy and I feel saturated and unable to engage in how good life can be, however consuming those feelings are, they are so momentaryÃ¢â¬Â¦I’m think pretty good at being happy.’
On her previous struggles with anxiety: ‘I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacksÃ¢â¬Â¦I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn’t anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I’d be like, ‘Maybe I’m going to get sick’…ÃÂ It’s kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that’s not to say I don’t get worried.’
On her love for girlfriend Alicia Cargile: ‘I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.’
On being more open about her relationship: ‘When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn’t like it. 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. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. 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.’
I’m glad being more honest with her relationship with women made her happier- that’s kind of interesting. Wished she had talked about that weird month she was with Soko, though, and how Alicia felt about that. DRAMZ to go with those photos, yes?
