Kristen Stewart on Her Sexuality: I Don't Feel Like It Would Be True for Me to Say 'I'm Coming Out'

Kristen Stewart looks so cool and chic on the cover of Nylon magazine’s September 2015 issue, on newsstands August 25.

Here’s what the 25-year-old American Ultra star had to share with the mag:

On her sexuality: “If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it. But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.”

On the future of finding an identity: “I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”

On her perceived personality: “It’s like I’m involved in a weekly comic book. I have this assigned personality…which I helped create, I suppose. People stand to make a lot of money on people like me—it’s this booming industry, so why would you go and change the character that people are paying for?”

    so…basically she doesn’t wanna say she’s gay cause she’s an actress and wants to take advantage of the ambiguity for career reasons and she will officially come out as a lesbian only if she forms a charity about it??
    Doesn’t sound very nice..

  • http://eternalozzie.com/ eternalozzie

    this is all unacceptable … in this country you are required to be one thing or another so we can label you properly.

  • Dina

    Hi RPATTZ fan pretending to be a concerned person about gay rights and purposefully putting your own demented spin on a coming out statement! Yes, us fans recognize you..the I heart Britboys was pretty obvious, too, since you use that handle before when you’ve admitted to being a fan of his. I despise the fans who harass Rob and his fiance, but it would be nice if you wouldn’t pull the opposite and obsess over her sexuality. Pot, meet kettle.

    Kristen says “Google Me, I’m not Hiding.” How much clearer can she get? She clearly says she doesn’t believe in labeling herself and that her SEXUALITY is ambiguous. Not labeling yourself and being gender fluid means she’s not straight but not gay either. She says she’s just an actress making movies, so she doesn’t feel like she has the perspective to speak out on gay rights and maybe she will if she ever starts a foundation.

    Why do you guys even comment on her articles if you aren’t a fan? Same with the people who leave nasty comments on Rob and FKA Twigs article. Discussing one’s sexuality is a tough thing to do, so maybe you should leave petty fandom squabbles out of that and recognize that this sort of thing is above that.

  • Dina

    LOL. Seriously, I don’t get the obsession over labeling. Some people prefer to be gender-fluid like her and MIley, nothing wrong with that. I feel like people want a big People cover with a precise statement about sexuality, when in reality sexuality can be complicated if you are gender fluid and you may lean more towards women sometimes and more towards men at another time.

  • beautylover

    Eventhough i didn’t understand what she meant i knew she was gay for a long time now it was quite obvious and she’s right when the world doesn’t care if you’re gay or straight then we’d make a real change coming out is old news now and gays are just overrating their case too much when we should turn the page yes we get it “there’s nothing wrong with being gay” now lets move on to something more important please.

  • Nora

    I don’t think you understood what she said. She didn’t say that she’s gay, she said that she doesn’t label herself.

  • Nora

    Thank you!!!!

  • VanityInsecurity

    the only thing she is saying is I refuse to come out & make this a permanent stigma for myself & doesn’t want to be labeled as gay, bi, or straight. Give me a break KStew you are bisexual deal with it. own it. This to me is a cop out.

  • beautylover

    Yeah she didn’t want to lebel herself and she’s right but it doesn’t change the fact she’s into girls and there’s nothing wrong with that.

  • LaCroix

    honestly, sounds like she just doesn’t want to :come-out: and make it final..cus she just doesn’t want to give the public anything they can hold over her head.. again.

  • Anna

    All I get from this interview is that she doesn’t feel the need to reveal what or who she is. She’s just a girl making movies not a girl trying to sell her sexual preference. She’s okay with people thinking she’s gay or straight. All she cares about is her career and doing her thing. Labels be damn.

  • Bencebi

    “On her perceived personality” section tells it all for me.. her answers are very PR related & sounds very contrived. I guess they don’t want to “label” her as gay as she always been & might hurt her career as just that.

  • Pat

    If she doesn’t want to say it, it’s her choice

  • R. L.

    But it’s her right to “cop out”.

  • Pat

    Yes and it’s not her fault. Most people are closed minded and we are in 2015.

  • Pat

    If she wants to do it one day, means she will be ready

  • Pat

    and hollywood loves to label people

  • R. L.

    Sadly, the others missed the joke. I got it though.

  • Pat

    It’s as if were still in the 50s, people need to change

  • Lilly

    Love the article! she wants to be known for her work and doesnt label herself because she’s single and can date men or women if she wants in the future , like she said she’s 25 and just living her life, she’s just a kid making movies and her preferences are no ones buisness and she’s free to date whomever she wants without giving haters any amo, good for her!!

  • k.

    So well put. Thank you

  • Pat

    Yes, she’s not in court so she doesn’t owe people anything.

  • Dee

    im pretty sure this person is being sarcastic.

  • Dee

    I actually think the complete opposite. I dont see how thats “coping out” So many female celebrities just cant seem to wait to come out as being “bisexual” as if this gives them a certain edge *cough*cough* miley cyrus. So her not wanting to label herself and just be who she is and go with the flow and worry about doing her job more than worry about what people think of her relationships…welll…. I admire that! And it *would* be a complete cop out if she decided to come out and put a label on herself. It would be almost typical and basic.

  • Lalene

    More dumb unwatched unwatchable britshit import junk from this britshit loser with impossible storylines and characters and impossible hyperinflated box-office success figures that America will never see or hear of and could never relate to or have anything to do with in the first place. Just plain stupid.

  • neil

    I don’t hear that at all. She’s right, she lives with ambiguity or at least she is better off living with it. The stigma of some defined sexuality works both ways. If it isn’t a big deal it’s no longer a stigma and thus no longer of some special importance needing some sort of “brave declaration”. It makes perfectly good sense to me since she is an actor and that is the community that has always been more accepting of its members bucking at cultural norms; since forever.

  • Fat government worker

    I miss Alicia. I liked them together. We need some new pics. I especially like the coffee pics even though I don’t drink coffee.

  • niagirl

    Of course, they would run with that part of the interview to get hits. What is important is “American Ultra” due in theaters August 21.

  • Lilly

    Your avi says it all

  • jason

    when you hire a handyman you don’t care if he’s gay or straight why is it different with actors?

  • VanityInsecurity

    So now coming out & being proud of who you are is a label? I can respect the fact she chooses not to speak about her private life, but the excuse she’s given is lame. By all means feel free to idolize her for it…

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    In other words what’s the point of sticking a label on your sexual preferences or ANYTHING ELSE. Just Wittgenstein for mass consumption.KS is such a fine philosopher in action. We are blessed.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    yes.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    That’s your reading.That’s all.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Why should she. Do you tellthe world what you think you are in a label. Walt Whitman said, “I am multitudes.” Read more and better writing.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    We are born bisexual. Our culture most often forces us to choose. Like whether you dominate with your left or right hand. The infant babbles in all sounds of all languages. But mom hears only her own native tongue sounds and laughs and smiles when she hears them. So baby repeats what makes mother laugh and smile. Same with gender. Same with handedness. Just Skinner in psych 101.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Nice comment. You cut thru the trivia like a hot knife thru butter.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Yeh. Much easier to sell them as commodities that way.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    I always loved my girl friends more than my boy friends in school in the 1940′s and 50′s. I didn’t label it then. Now I wonder if I might have been braver and experimented with one whom I suspect now was consciously gay.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Why is not answering a question that is really an interrogation a cop out? There are interviews of different Discourse depending on the intelligence and quality of the one interviewing. All this shows is the lack of education and experience of the interviewer. That’s all it shows. The interviewer is one of the dimes and dozens of them.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Yes coming out is assuming a label. That’s OK if that’s what you want to do. BUT it is labeling yourself. Now no interviewer is going to ask if there is a man in your life now.KS is ambiguous and androgynous. That is what makes her so very beautiful. Here’s Sontag on it in a different context.http://focusfree.blogspot.com/2011/03/archetypes-of-beautyrob-pattinson-hedy.html I personally do not think KS’s beauty is of the archtype but it is close. I think David Bowie was when young and when he played with it assuming different identities.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    She said “her own truth” and for KS her truth is not to label, to keep fluid, ambiguous, unpindownable. Deal with it.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Nah. It’s none of your or anyone else’s biz dude. Learn to ask better questions.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    Hope that day never comes when she gets cemented in stone.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    That’s capitalistic system honey. That’s the dirty word. The one you should be brave enuf to take on.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    50′s you were much freer. You could be secret about it if you wanted. More exciting, more seductive.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    yep.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    $$$ from celebrity status.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    That’s an interesting reading you are giving it.

  • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

    People do not yet realize the levels of interviewing from interrogation to a dialogue with the person being interviewed. The entire history of questioning was redone by Eric in his book Blacklist.An otherwise so-so book what is astonishing is that he encapsulates questioning beginning as interrogation in the Inquisition and stumbles thru all its nuances until he gets to Freud and interpretation.Astonishing journey.Would have been a fine part for Rob to do but his fans scared it off moaning about how dangerous it was for him to go to Iraq and probably be assassinated for the publicity of killing him. Well that ended any insurance company insuring THAT film for sure. Rob’s fans are the worst I have ever seen for anyone in my decades of movie watching. They are very like that evil bitch Louella Parsons who wrote about celebrities making her living off them and the dirt she dug up and elaborated on. Go to it girls. Poor things, you are getting paid nothing for doing this and the site gets all the money you are bringing in. Stupid stupid girls to do this.
