Kristen Stewart Waxes Poetic About Her Own Self-Growth

kristen stewart

I find Kristen Stewart quite enjoyable. She seems pretty down-to-earth, she’s not into the whole Hollywood bullshit thing, she’s cute, whatever. She’s okay in my books. But one thing I will say is that homegirl really thinks she’s some deep intellectual who’s so ~in tune~ with her innermost soul and has an understanding of the world that many others lack. It’s the kind of thinking you’d expect from a 17-year-old hipster, but not from a 25-year-old, so it’s a bit concerning. But whatever, here’s some of the navel gazing she did for the August issue of Marie Claire.

She spent years being taken to task for striking doleful poses on the red carpet, or not shining in talk-show settings, or daring to have desires beyond those the public prescribed to her because they believed they had the right to shape her persona since she was a young girl in a series of blockbuster films based on best-selling books. Finally, she decided to embrace the rebel labels thrown her way and say, “Fuck it all!”

“I lit my universe on fire,” she admits with a sly smile, “and I watched it burn.” Stewart drops her head, tugs at the hem of her simple black sweatshirt. Fans away a mosquito. Yanks a fallen tube sock from its cotton pool in her Converse sneaker. “Speaking very candidly,” she says at last, lifting her chin and swallowing a gulp of her vodka tonic, “it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more,” she pauses, then settles on the word, “feral.”

“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.”

Oh, God help us all. No one seriously refers to themselves as “feral” – I mean, no one outside of a first year creative writing major. Come on, KStew, I expect better from you. Also, “age” hasn’t made you anything. You’re 25, for fuck’s sake, not 50.

Kristen Stewart’s Mom Never Said She Was Gay

kristen stewart

Well, I can’t say I didn’t call it. In what is either a potential libel case or one of extreme backtracking, Kristen Stewart‘s mom Jules is claiming that she never talked about her daughter’s relationship with Alicia Cargile or about KStew’s sexuality at all. She was quoted as saying she’s absolutely fine with the romance and thinks Alicia’s a great girl, but Jules is calling BS and saying her daughter never even came up.

“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.

The only issue is, the interviewer, Sharon Feinstein, says she’s got the receipts (or, you know, the tapes) and plans to upload them to put this whole thing to bed.

I told y’all Kristen was going to be mad and kick off! That’s what all of this is about. I don’t even know why anyone cares so much. It’s a relationship between two women, not fucking ties to Al Qaeda. Lord almighty.

Kristen Stewart’s Mom Is Totally Thrilled About Her Daughter’s Girlfriend

kristen stewart alicia

Kristen Stewart is at the very least bisexual, but we’ve all known that for ages and it’s not a big deal. It’s old news by now, especially since she’s basically been with the same girl, alternately referred to as her “cousin” at one point and then her “gal pal” (LOL) at another, for ages now. It’s totally not a big deal and in fact it’s pretty cute, but people still act scandalized over it. One person who isn’t scandalized, however, is KStew’s mom. In fact, she’s totally into it!

Jules Stewart apparently gave some quotes to the Sunday Mirror saying she’s not only met Alicia, but really likes her and approves of the relationship her daughter is in because like all decent parents, she only wants her kid to be happy at the end of the day.

Jules, 55, told the Sunday Mirror she has met Alicia and that the couple are very happy together.

She added: “What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy.

“She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices.

“I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”

“I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers.

“People are good to do whatever they like as long as they’re not hurting people or breaking the law.

“I have gay friends, family members, I’m accepting of people, we are all free to choose who we want to love.”

That’s really sweet, and basically just what anyone who isn’t a close-minded asshole would say. However, I bet KStew is gonna be piiiissseeeddddd. She never talks about her personal life, so to have her mom doing it is probably embarrassing as shit.  Thanks, Mom!

Kristen Stewart Has some Interesting Thoughts On Plastic Surgery

kristen stewart plastic surgery

Kristen Stewart considers herself a pretty staunch feminist, if many of her interviews are anything to go by (which, duh, they are). She constantly calls out the rampant sexism in Hollywood, is vocal about her support for her fellow ladies, etc. But her acceptance for all women draws a line somewhere before plastic surgery, which she compares to “vandalism” on the female body and claims is only undertaken by women who are going insane. Yikes.

From Harper’s Bazaar UK:

“No, never. Never,” she says of plastic surgery. “I am so freaked out by the idea of doing anything. And maybe that’s completely arrogant but I don’t want to change anything about myself. I think the women who do are losing their minds. It’s vandalism.”

Yes, that is completely arrogant to assume that your experience is the experience of every other woman. Can it go too far? Sure – look at the Kardashians, who barely look human anymore. But while I say that, I also realize that it’s their choice. I might not agree with it, but it’s hardly “vandalism” and is not the source of their insanity, just one of the after-effects, I’d say.

KStew does have the tendency to be incredibly hyperbolic and put her foot in her mouth nonstop, so I doubt she was aware of the implications of what she was saying. But I think she maybe needs to think a bit more before she speaks in future.

Kristen Stewart Calls Her Infamous ‘Twilight’ Sex Scenes “Agony”

kristen stewart

Despite the fact that the last Twilight movie came out like, three years ago, people still want to talk to Kristen Stewart about it. More specifically, they want to talk about THAT sex scene – the ONE time Bella and Edward finally get down to business after thousands upon thousands of pages and all hell breaks loose. Basically he leaves bruises all over her body and she ends up pregnant with a half demon spawn that nearly kills her before ripping its way out of her body, leaving Edward to finally consent to turning her into a vampire (as she wished all along) in order to save her life. And yes, I read the books – THEY WERE SO GOOD (in that “holy shit, how can this be so awful?” kinda way). So what was it like filming that pivotal scene? “Grotesquely uncomfortable” and absolute “agony”, apparently.

From Harper’s Bazaar UK:

“On Twilight we had to do the most epic sex scene of all time,” says the actress of the infamous rough-and-tumble romp, which left their character’s bedroom in shambles. “It had to be transcendent and otherworldly, inhuman, better sex than you can possibly ever imagine, and we were like, ‘How do we live up to that?’ It was agony. Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good.” 

Well… I mean, what did she expect? It’s a book about a damn vampire shooting his immortal fluids into his barely-out-of-high school girlfriend who seems to have no sense of self outside of him. It was hardly going to change the world.

As for KStew’s thoughts on nudity…

“I just even question when a fairly established actress finally does a scene on a movie when she shows her boobs and she hasn’t done it up until this moment,” Stewart says. “And maybe she only did it for the prestigious part and it’s okay for this time because it’s classy, and I’m like, ‘Oh God, thank you for revealing to the world your treasure.’ ” 

I don’t… really get it? I mean, I do get what she’s saying, but for someone who’s apparently a self-described feminist and rants on about Hollywood’s sexism problem, I think she’s focusing her criticism in the wrong area, but whatevs.

Here are some other pics from the shoot of Kristen looking pretty, though wholly uncomfortable:

Kristen Stewart And Her Girlfriend Are Still Going Strong

While haters were claiming that Kristen Stewart was going to be all devastated to learn that her ex, Robert Pattinson, had gotten engaged, I was calling BS from the beginning, because clearly KStew has been going strong with girlfriend Alicia for a long ass time, and RPattz putting a ring on FKA Twigs‘ finger isn’t going to change that.

The ladies were spotted at Coachella this past weekend, being cute and casual and way too hipsterish for my tastes, but I love Kristen, so I’ll let it slide.

Love it!

Will Kristen Stewart survive Robert Pattinson’s engagement?

robert pattinson kristen stewart

Now that Robert Pattinson is officially off the market and engaged to FKA Twigs, things must be really hard for his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart, right? I mean, it’s not like she’s super happy with her girlfriend and has been for like, at least a year! She’s probably crying herself to sleep at night thinking about how much she misses Ol’ Sparkles (I’m pretending that’s what she used to call him as a pet name since they met on the Twilight set).

Anyway, apparently other people have seriously been thinking KStew gives a shit since ~a source~ felt the need to publicly comment on it to basically confirm what anyone with a brain already knows.

“Kristen is doing fine, working and traveling, and she will survive Robert’s engagement,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She has her own life and has moved on.” 

“Kristen lives a much more low-key life now and seems happier,” the source added. “It was obvious that she was struggling with the media attention [during her relationship with Rob].” 

“She often acted frustrated and looked drained,” the source says. “Now she focuses on work, spends time with her friends and family.” 

Maybe she was frustrated and looked drained because RPattz had the wrong anatomy in his pants? Just a guess. I called KStew as a lady’s lady back when she was in Panic Room, and she was, what, 12 then? Some things just can’t be helped.
