Kristen Stewart has opened up about her sexuality, stating that she refuses to be defined by all of your labels.
Speaking to Variety, Kristen said: 'Me not defining it right now is the whole basis of what I'm about. If you don't get it, I don't have time for you.'
She praised the open outlook young people have towards love, saying that 'there's acceptance that's become really rampant and cool. You don't have to immediately know how to define yourself.'
Despite being vocal about her sexuality, however, Kristen refuses to accept the responsibility of being an example to others, a pressure she explains she experienced growing up. 'I had to have some answer about who I was. I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn't want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate.'
'So I was like, f—k, how do I define that? I'm not going to. Plus, I didn't want to f—k with other people. I didn't want to be this example: it's so easy. I don't want it to seem like it was stupid for them [teenagers struggling with their sexuality] to have a hard time.'
Kristen famously dated Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, before being linked to girlfriends such as Stephanie 'Soko' Sokolinski and Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell.
She explained that going public with her female relationships was a conscious decision, feeling that it was 'important' for young fans to see such images. 'As much as I wanted to protect myself, it's not about hiding. As soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that's not honest.'
'I definitely found where I'm comfortable.'
