Kristen Stewart graced the cover of Nylon magazine looking very Kristen Stewart-y (androgynous clothes, lots of eye makeup, messed up hair) and talking a big Kristen Stewart game (vague and cool and desperately looking to be liked). The takeway from the interview is that she is comfortable with her dating life, but that doesn’t mean she wants to tell the world about it.
The American Ultra actress tells Nylon in its September cover story that she feels reluctant when it comes to labeling her sexuality:
“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 f—— ambiguity of this life and I love it.”
Stewart, 25, says she believes in fluidity, and that in a few years she doesn’t think people will need to associate with the titles of “gay” or “straight.”
“It’s like, just do your thing,” she tells the mag.
The Twilight actress says she chooses to remain vague about her sexual orientation because she doesn’t feel she has the “perspective” to do otherwise.
“I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job,” she says. “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.”
Hey, at least she doesn’t think she’s as important as people think she is. I hate that she’s like, “I have no opinion so I’m gonna lay low,” because she could be way more of a LGBT role model. That being said at least she’s not being totally obnoxious and Raven Simone-like about her opinions. Yeech!
What do you think of her orientation- or lack thereof?
Elle UK’s September cover girl is Kristen Stewart, and is it just me or do her covers always make her seem greasy and forelorn?
Covers aside, the inside of the mag always has an interview where K stew is essentially saying, “don’t hate me,” “I hate fame,” and “I’m cool, I promise.” This one’s no exception. Elle UK has released some interview excerpts and a video:
Whether she smiles: “The whole smiling thing is weird because I actually smile a lot. I literally want to be like, ‘Dude, you would think I was cool if you got to know me.’”
She’s not anti-social media: “I’m not anti-social media. I just haven’t decided to do it. The idea of addressing such a massive group… If I don’t know who I’m talking to it doesn’t make any f**king sense to me.”
Feminism, apologies: “I apologize constantly, incessantly…. There’s something so natural about saying ‘yes’, I think with women there’s a natural inclination to want to satisfy people.”
Her style: She prefers “comfort and practicality” over anything else. “I wear jeans and—I always say this and it’s so boring to do fashion interviews for magazines … I don’t really have a fashion icon. I’ve never tried to emulate someone’s thing.”
Toughness: “I like to make people think that I am.”
Like, literally, not like a 90’s teenage troll boy. A real WOMAN!
And not only does she look like a woman, she sounds like one, too. Kristen Stewart really kills it in this issue of Marie Claire, where she talks about the best advice she’s ever gotten, anxiety, her public image and her “hair being her crutch.” I dig it! Here’s a little snippet of her interview:
On the best advice she’s received: “Patti Smith told me to always take care of my teeth and lungs.”
On her public image: “I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is fucking awesome.”
On her appearance and cutting her hair: “My hair was such a crutch. I looked quote unquote ‘sexy’ no matter what. I could hide behind it. As soon as I didn’t have all that hair, I had to let my face hang out. I felt more confident than I had in a really long time. And it felt really good. Maybe to most people long hair is prettier. But then what? Is your main goal in life to be desired? That is boring as f*ck.”
Hear, hear Kristen. Do you guys like her? I undulate from finding her obnoxious/sanctimonious to one of the most outspoken and rad actresses working today. And these photos? Color me impressed- give the girl a bunch of stylists and fabulous outfits, and she looks less 90’s grunge and super adult.
Or did she? The celeb mom is saying she didn’t, though a British tabloid thinks otherwise…
Kristen Stewart’s mom Jules is debunking a new story in The Mirror, which printed an interview with her that talked about Kristen’s sexual orientation and who she’s dating. US Weekly reports:
In the interview, Jules reportedly outed her daughter, supposedly saying, “What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy. I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her.”
The only problem with the quotes? Jules never said them.
I spoke to Sharon Feinstein about my film K-11 that has been put on display in the Hollywood Museum,” she told Us Weekly. “It’s currently there under the LGBT banner on the third floor. She also asked me about my views on gay rights, which I was happy to express. Then we talked briefly about the fundraiser I am hosting for TheWolfConnection.org. Never ever did we discuss Kristen!”
Noting that she is a “huge supporter of gay rights,” Jules went on to acknowledge that she briefly spoke about Stewart’s personal assistant Alicia Cargile, whom The Mirror claimed is Stewart’s girlfriend.
“I said, ‘Yes, she’s a lovely girl,’” Jules said, when asked if she knew Cargile.
I dunno- if Kristen WASN’T dating Alicia, why didn’t she just deny it? I know her daughter’s love life isn’t really hers to discuss, but still.
