Following a very candid interview last month, Kristen Stewart continues to open up about her personal life; specifically her romantic links, both past and present.
In a new interview with The New York Times Style Magazine, T, the 26-year-old actress addressed her highly publicized yet very mysterious relationship with “Twilight” leading man, Robert Pattinson.
“People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product. It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me,” Stewart, who was interviewed in her Los Feliz home, admitted. “It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”
Stewart and Pattinson basked in the love of not just each other but also from the adoration of legions of “Twilight” fans. Their on-screen affair which quickly spilled into real life was the fulfillment of every fan’s dream that even during their time off from working on the five-part film series, people still hounded them. This is presumably also the reason why Stewart’s cheating scandal with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders blew Bella and Edward purists away. But given that the final installment of the movie franchise was set to hit theaters later that year, the two continued to be together. The relationship, however, ended shortly after “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2” was released.
Since the breakup, the former couple are still being plagued with numerous reconciliation rumors. This is despite the fact that Pattinson is currently engaged to be married to musician FKA twigs. Stewart, on the other hand, has been quietly dating visual effects producer Alicia Cargile for three years now, which she also addressed.
“I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive,” she explained. “I still want to protect my personal life, but I don’t want to seem like I’m protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people.”
