Kristen Stewart opens up about coming out
Actress Kristen Stewart has opened up about her decision to ‘come out’ publicly (and debuted a killer new buzz-cut).
“It just seemed important, and topical,” she said in a recent interview with The Sunday Times.
“Considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized [my private life] affects a greater number of people than just me,” she said. “It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves.”
“If [my sexuality] didn’t seem like a relevant topic, like something that needed help, I would have kept my life private forever. But then I can’t walk outside holding somebody’s hand, as I’m followed everywhere,” she said.
“When I was dating Rob, the public was the enemy — and that is no way to live. It wasn’t this grand statement, ‘I was so confused! Now I’ve realized who I am!’ I have not been struggling.”
