Kristen Stewart was once part of a very famous relationship. The actress dated her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson for four years. With eyes on them all the time, the two tried to keep their relationship as private as they could until it ended in 2013.
The actress told The New York Times that she hated how their relationship was treated like a “product” sold for “entertainment value.” The experience has made Stewart change the way she views relationships and how she speaks about them, especially since she started dating women.
Stewart, who has always been private about her personal life, has been coming out of her shell lately, and much of it has to do with her relationship with visual-effects producer Alicia Cargile.
Speaking of the decision to finally put her three-year relationship out in public, the actress said: “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.”
Stewart, however, admitted that she's still in the process of figuring out how much to reveal and how much to keep to herself. Despite her conundrum, the actress has been vocal about how deeply she feels about her girlfriend.
Opening up about the relationship for the first time to Elle UK, Stewart gushed about Cargile, saying: “Right now I'm just really in love with my girlfriend. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, 'Finally, I can feel again.'”
Lots of rumors about Stewart and Cargile have gone around, with the first confirmation said to be from Stewart's mother. In an interview with Mirror, Jules Stewart reportedly said that she's in favor of the relationship and even called Cargile “a lovely girl.” Jules, however, told Us Weekly that the interview never happened and she never talked about her daughter's relationship.
