Kristen was told to hide sexuality to get Marvel movie
Los Angeles: Twilight star Kristen Stewart says she was advised not to hold hands with her girlfriend in public if she wanted to land a role in a Marvel movie.
"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'. I don't want to work with people like that," Stewart said, in an interview to Harper's Bazaar.
Stewart, who famously dated her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, explained why she wants to be open about her sexuality.
"I think I just wanted to enjoy my life. And that took precedence over protecting my life, because in protecting it, I was ruining it. Like what, you can't go outside with who you're with? You can't talk about it in an interview?" she wondered. 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 'hetero-sexual'. And people like to know stuff, so what the f*** are you?" Stewart added.
The actor, who is dating screenwriter Dylan Meyer, says people are becoming more "ambiguous" and feel it's a "gorgeous thing", according to a report in mirror.co.uk.
Stewart stars in Amazon Studios' forthcoming film "Seberg," which premiered at the Venice Film Festival over the weekend, and will appear in Sony's "Charlie's Angels," out November 15.
