Kristen Stewart, the woman who will always be known as the “terrible actress” from Twilight to some people, but also the badass woman from Twilight from others has been living her life authentically. Her career got started after the huge hit of Twilight and after, Kristen Stewart received different movie scripts and has been busy filming. She starred in 2012 Snow White and The Huntsman, 2015 American Ultra, 2016 Personal Shopper, and her latest movie that people are waiting for to drop is the remake of the iconic movie, Charlie’s Angels.
Elizabeth Banks the director, writer, and producer of the film said, Kristen Stewart is her secret weapon. Banks said, “She’s a world-famous beauty, a style icon, but I think what she’s most known for is living authentically. Just being herself all the time. I felt that I could surprise audiences with a Kristen performance. And I think that people will be delighted by just how much fun she’s having in this movie.”
Some people are hesitant about the movie because of Kristen, but I saw the trailer and I am very excited about it. Before Kristen Stewart got these big-name movies she was told that if she stops holding her girlfriend’s hand then big companies like Marvel will hire her. They didn’t like that she is openly attracted to anyone, women, and men.
Speaking to British Harper’s Bazaar, Kristen discussed her relationships and the effect it had on her life in Hollywood. Her relationship with Robert Patterson during Twilight days was private because they needed it to be. She said, “When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by. So much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just like, ‘No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it’s ours.'” She always had to fight for her relationships to be private and because of that, she was never truly happy. Hiding her relationships from the world took more effort than just being out and open and parading her love around without dodging paparazzi.
She started dating women and that is when Kristen Stewart felt more at ease. She didn’t hide her relationships and embraced it by kissing and holding hands in public. Here is what Kristen Stewart had to say about her relationships with women.
“I was informed by an old school mentality, which is — you want to preserve your career and your success and your productivity, and there are people in the world who don’t like you, and they don’t like that you date girls, and they don’t like that you don’t identify as a quote-unquote ‘lesbian,’ but you also don’t identify as a quote-unquote ‘heterosexual.’ And people like to know stuff, so what the fuck are you?'” asked Kristen. She asserted that it’s not a question that she has to answer (she dislikes labels) and that being authentically yourself in Hollywood does come with a dark side.
“I have fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favor, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie,'” she said. “I don’t want to work with people like that.”
Kristen Stewart is now living her best life and free and even though she did not get a Marvel role she received something else, her happiness and sanity. She still gets big-name roles by being herself, and one of those you can watch on the big screen on November 15, 2019.
