After the “Twilight” franchise that made her internationally famous, her relationship with co-star and then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson received intense public attention.
In their efforts to maintain some privacy, the two declined to discuss their relationship with the press, which resulted in some uncomfortable interviews.
As for the name calling, “I try to avoid the word ‘awkward’,” Stewart says. “I want to reclaim that word, because it’s been used too violently against me.”
Now, she says, she just wants to enjoy life, even if that comes with some of fame’s not so great moments, like people asking what her sexual orientation is.
Stewart doesn’t have to answer that question, she adds, and says she hates labels.
“I just think we’re all kind of getting to a place where — I don’t know, evolution’s a weird thing — we’re all becoming incredibly ambiguous,” she tells the publication. “And it’s this really gorgeous thing.”
But being honest comes at a price in Hollywood, she says.
“I have fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favour, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie,'” she says. “I don’t want to work with people like that.”
And she’s happy with her choices.
“Every day I get older, life gets easier,” she says.
