Kristen Stewart talks about why she went public with lesbian relationship

The notoriously private Kristen Stewart opened up last month for the first time about her relationship with girlfriend Alicia Cargile.

Now she’s tells us why she decided to go public.

‘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,’ the actress tells The New York Times Style Magazine.

‘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.’

Stewart had previously had a very public relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.

‘People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,’ Stewart says. ‘It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me. 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.’

    Till tomorrow, I still don’t understand the investment America had in the Kristen Stewart-Rob Pattinson relationship. They weren’t exactly the most beautiful couple in Hollywood. And really, with them and Jlo-Ben Affleck mania, it goes to show that too much public interest is almost never good for a Hollywood relationship.

    How can anyone break up with Rob Pattinson and survive?? Asides that shiny emo-bloodsucker thing he had going on in Twishit, he is Rob Pattinson for the love of heaven!! With his divine cheekbones and fabulous hair

      That fabulous hair though. I remember when his character was killed in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He was unknown then, but I grieved. Oh lawd, how I grieved, that such a beautiful boy would just die.
