Kristen Stewart Opens Up About Her Views on Feminism

Kristen Stewart wears a plain white tee while stopping by a friend’s home on Monday afternoon (October 13) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 24-year-old actress recently chatted with The Daily Beast and opened up about how young actresses these days are coming out against being labeled a feminist.

“That’s such a strange thing to say, isn’t it? Like, what do you mean? Do you not believe in equality for men and women? I think it’s a response to overly-aggressive types. There are a lot of women who feel persecuted and go on about it, and I sometimes am like, ‘Honestly, just relax, because now you’re going in the other direction.’Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn’t necessarily the one you should listen to,” Kristen said. “By our nature alone, think about what you’re saying and say it—but don’t scream in people’s faces, because then you’re discrediting us.”

“Relating it to my one little avenue, people say, ‘If you want to make it in the film industry as a woman, you have to be a bitch.’ No, you are going to ruin any chance you have and give us a bad name. It’s the overcompensation to where our generation goes, ‘Relax,’ because it’s been easier for us, and because we don’t have as much of the anger, so it’s like we can’t get behind it and it’s a bit embarrassing. But that being said, it’s a really ridiculous thing to say you’re not a feminist,” Kristen added.

FYI: Kristen is wearing 7 For All Mankind jeans.

    I really like Kristen Stewart. She’s in her last interviews confirms every word, every sentence that she is very intelligent and a nice person.
    I am glad she published a book or something.
    It’s really a shame, that everyone misinterprets, what she actually says. I hope, that she will continue her amazing work. She is a jewel in Hollywood. Thanks for your words  and from my heart I wish you luck.

  • love Kristen

    She actually shows as very thoughtful girl and she good opinions.

  • amanda

    Totally agree with her. Many criticize her, no matter what she says or does, people will always throw shit to her, but there are also people like me who will always be there. And support her NO MATTER WHAT. love you.

  • Wooow,

    that its interviews of NY are just amazing, all of them. She is absolute perfection.

  • JM

    Yes! Totally agree with her. Nice to finally see a young female celeb with actual knowledge about what feminism means.

  • KStew rocks

    The world would need more such women who are not afraid to speak and say, how things are.
    I am charmed by by this young woman.
    Very true interviews, he read from the last time. I have to search for her interviews from the past. She is aging beautifully. A gorgeous and intelligent girl.

  • LOL

    There nothing like a rich hollywood girl talking about feminism who made a bulk of her money playing an idiot teenage who wanted nothing more than become a vampire by a controlling vampire and now she’s an expert on the subject..and then what’s funnier is her gaggle of fanbots who thinks she spoke words of wisdom. Then she calls out a female for being a a b*tch . come on Kristen name names..since you’re above it all.

  • I love her

    A lot of truth in her words. Actually she really like her in three films.
    CXR, Clouds Sils Maria and I look forward to of Still Alice.

  • chl

    “Sometimes, the loudest voice in the room isn’t necessarily the one you should listen to”. I pretty much agree with this one.

  • Sim

    tell us Kristen .. what are your views on sleeping with married men? :)

  • Liz

    Finally someone says it! This is what all the young women (and men) in Hollywood SHOULD say when asked if they’re a feminist or not.

  • AMERICA KILLS THE ENEMY

    Who cares what this faggo britshit thinks!!??!! Go back home to your dead little island to die, faggo britshit!!!!!!!!

  • Kristen supports ISIS

    Kristen stated yesterday that the 9/11 terrorists at Guantanamo Bay are misunderstood and that joining the United States Armed Forces is the job of a simpletons. Really? I guess she supports the raping, enslavement and beheading of women and children as well. She just proved she is the embodiment of the acronym for Can’t Understand Normal Thinking! Our family will no longer buy her productions. Even my kids voluntarily trashed all DVDs of hers. Go pound sand and puck yourself Kristen! YOU embody what is wrong with today’s culture!

  • AK

    @Kristen supports ISIS:

    She did not say say this, Faux News mimic. She is in a movie & the military cooperated in it. Stop spreading lies!

  • AK

    @Kristen supports ISIS:

    Anyone like you who would believe such lies without investigating, and have her own children destroy DVDs over those lies, needs her head examined. Show where she said it! She supports the military, you fool. My God, people who believe anything they read need mental help!

  • luly

    hermosa como siempre,ella sigue triunfando recibiendo elogios por sus pelicula

  • LB

    ella unica preciosa humilde bendiciones bebe

  • rich

    my god, is it possible for someone to take a position favourable for women without being an ideologue? oh btw I don’t see how bourgeois women can get equal with women who have proper jobs anyway.

  • cyn

    @Kristen supports ISIS:

    wow..you need some serious help.
    that was a false article, you need something more productive to do with your time.
    anyway, kristen is a queen i’m glad others are starting to notice

  • Sam

    Good to see her walking with her head up, and better posture. She looks healthy. I can’t wait to see Camp XRay coming soon then Still Alice and Sils Maria. Happy, happy. Go Kristen.

  • http://google Thomas

    FANS of Kristen Stewart, Remember do not Respond to NEGATIVE, NASTY, MEAN, etc comments… Just support her by going to her movies… much appreciation… Thanks to all her FANS for their continued support…

    Remember no Response to the other online sites either.

  • KBB

    @Sim: who gives a rats anyway. Ppl have been having affairs since the beginning of time–not saying it’s moral just that there are far more important things in life than a marriage contract. Fighting for equality is far more important IMO. As you were

  • JG

    @Kristen supports ISIS: are you insane !!!! Go read the actual article idiot and then talk , Im seriously thinking people who read that twisted article actually have no brains and your living proof of that , so thanks …

  • Cathay Williams

    Girl with an Attitude – speak up ;) someone has to say it….ly

  • lyta

    sorry, but i will start beliving in her when she starts to make real changes and fight for womens rights like Emma Watson, than just saying a bunch of things in a magazine while promoting a movie.

  • Pau

    @lyta:

    We cannot all be like Emma Watson. We fight for what we believe in our own way.

  • Missa

    I’m not her biggest fan but that’s a very good, intelligent response. Much better than that idiot Shailene Woodley who clearly doesn’t get it at all.

  • Mary

    @Kristen supports ISIS: If you actually read and were able to comprehend the interview you would realize she was talking about a movie role. There are still detainees at Gitmo that have never been linked to any kind of terrorism. Kristen was trained by the military for this role and the people she trained with have nothing but respect and kind words for her. You talk about people who can’t understand normal thinking, that would be you not Kristen. No where in the the interview did she say she supported any of the horrors you mentioned. I’m sure she will be fine without your support and very much doubt that your children volunteered to destroy their DVD’s. You are the embodiment of what is wrong with some people today.I have an acronym for you and all your suppositions FUBAR. I really feel sorry for your children.
