Stewart’s mother has revealed that she never spoke about her daughter’s love life. She said she was asked if she knew Alicia Cargile. “I said, ‘Yes, she’s a lovely girl,’ ” Jules told Us Weekly. She has spoken about her film “K-11” and expressed her views on gay rights, but she did not speak about Kristen at all.
Original story: Kristen Stewart doesn’t often talk about her personal life, but that won’t stop her mother. Jules Stewart opened up about her 25-year-old daughter’s love life and said that Kristen is dating a woman.
“What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy,” Jules reportedly told the Sunday Mirror. “She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices.”
In the past, Stewart’s public relationships have been with men. She was with her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson, now 29, for three years and she had a highly publicized affair with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, now 44, in 2012. According to the Mirror, the “Still Alice” actress is dating her personal assistant, Alicia Cargile.
Many have speculated about the status of Cargile and Stewart’s relationship. While Stewart keeps quiet on her private life, photos of her and Cargile holding hands and possibly kissing have caused many rumors. According to her mother, the two are dating and very happy together.
“I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her,” Jules, 55, said. “What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”
Back in August, Kristen talked about the never-ending rumors about her love life, but she didn’t really confirm or deny any of the reports. “It's like soap opera. I try not to let it mess with me, because my true personal life, as much as people think they know about it, they don't know d--- s---,” she told Vanity Fair France. “Who could? By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the f--- is going on.”
The actress is, however, very aware of the rumors surrounding her. She has admitted that she looks at comments about herself online. “I don’t want to go outside and not know what people are saying about me,” Stewart told Harper’s Bazaar last month. “When comments started to exist about me, that was very off-putting, but that’s a distant, distant memory now. I don’t give a flying f--- what some kid in Montana is writing about me. But I do like to know generally what is being said, only because I very often have to interact with it, because of the questions I’m being asked.”
Stewart has not yet addressed her sexuality or clarified if she would like to be considered bisexual, pansexual or any other label.
