  • The Twilight star reckons labels like 'gay' and 'straight' are on the way out

    In a new interview Kristen Stewart who has been rumoured to have been dating her PA, Alicia Cargile, for some time has opened up about her sexuality. The actress, who previously had a high profile relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, said that she doesn’t feel the need to label herself. 

    When asked about her relationship status she told Nylon magazine: “Google me, I’m not hiding. 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.” 
    Kristen, 25, continued: “If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and 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 f***ing 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!’” 

    The American Ultra star joins a host of stars who have spoken out about their fluid sexuality. Cara Delevingne revealed earlier this year that she dates both men and women, crediting her girlfriend musician St Vincent aka Annie Clarke for helping her to accept herself. Cara previously dated actress Michelle Rodriguez and was rumoured to have had a relationship with One Direction singer Harry Styles. 
    Similarly Miley Cyrus has spoken out about her sexuality saying that she is open to, “anything that’s consenting and doesn’t involve an animal.” The star revealed that she first came out to her mother at the age of 14 and told Paper magazine earlier this year: “Everything that’s legal, I’m down with. Yo, I’m down with any adult – anyone over the age of 18 who is down to love me.”
