Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Kristen Stewart explained in a recent interview while she was promoting her latest flick called “Personal Shopper” that she came out as a member of the LGBT community because she wanted other people to feel good about themselves.
Stewart was first asked about the “Saturday Night Live” scene wherein she joked about being so gay. The statement was made during her monologue regarding President Donald Trump tweeting about her and Robert Pattinson in the past. She said, "Donald, if you didn’t like me then, you’re really probably not going to like me now, ‘cause I’m hosting 'SNL' and I’m like, so gay dude.”
She shared "Honestly, I think it was just funny. Not to diminish the point because I think that saying things so bluntly is absolutely important, but at the same time, the only reason I haven't ever done that is because there is an ambiguity to that and I wanted things to be really real for me." She also cleared she did not come out for Pattinson or Trump but she came out because of her sexuality that is supposed to be not anyone’s business but hers.
The 26-year-old clarified it was not the most important part of her “SNL” hosting as she wanted the gay comment to be light. She said after the comment, many people thanked her and she said thank you in return noting that the LGBT community is a mutual full circle.
The actress also said she did not talk about her first relationships, such as the one with Pattinson, as she wanted things to be private. She said she hated details of her life being “peddled around the world.” Stewart and Pattinson were together for four years but broke up in 2012. Since the break-up, Stewart has been linked to St. Vincent, Soko, and Stella Maxwell.
She also talked about stripping down naked for the nude scenes on “Personal Shopper.” She said the experience was empowering. Stewart said, "Those [scenes] for me were really empowering, not because I was taking my clothes off, but just because I was getting to the most primal part of that [character], finally, someone who's really closed off. So then I felt like they were the most revealing, but also the most empowering scenes.
