Actor Kristen Stewart has opened up about her relationship with Alicia Cargile for the first time, saying she is “really in love” with her girlfriend. In an interview to Elle UK magazine, the 26-year-old Cafe Society actor has gushed about her on-off girlfriend, Cargile. “Right now I am just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.’”
Stewart, who dated her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson from 2009 to 2013, said dating a girl has completely changed her life and made her even more happy. “When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, so I didn’t like it.
“But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier,” she said.
Stewart previously dated French actor and musician Soko for a short period before calling it off in May this year.
