Kristen Stewart is Done Labeling Her Sexuality

Kristen Stewart has been a huge role model for those who are still exploring their sexuality, and in an interview with Variety, she opens up about her own personal journey.

Since the Twilight star basically had her life invaded by the public for years, she is taking the time to really reinvent herself and her career based on who she wants to be. Stewart has been seeking out countless character roles, while also taking the time to fully immerse herself in her own sexuality and work as a pioneer for the LGBT community.

“There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool. You don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself,” she says, reflecting on the casual millennial attitude toward dating that she deeply appreciates. “Me not defining myself right now is the whole basis of what I’m about.”

As an advocate for the LGBT community, she wants to present an honest picture to young people of what it looks like to struggle with sexuality, since it was a difficult journey even for her. “I didn’t want to f—k with other people. I didn’t want to be this example: It’s so easy. I don’t want it to seem like it was stupid for them to have a hard time,” she explains.

For Kristen, things have changed in a “wonderful way,” since she has finally come to a place of feeling comfortable with herself. This means that she’s not hiding from the public and will openly appear in pictures with her reported girlfriend SoKo.

“As much as I want to protect myself, it’s not about hiding. As soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that’s not honest. I definitely found where I’m comfortable. I don’t take credit for that.”
