Kristen Stewart came out to ‘make even one other person feel good about themselves’
Kristen Stewart came out as gay not for herself, but for everyone else.
The “Twilight” actress, who broke the news of her on-and-off-again girlfriend Alicia Cargile to Elle in July, was quiet about her first relationship with co-star Robert Pattinson, but she wasn’t hiding.
“I didn’t talk about my first relationships that went public because I wanted things that are mine to be mine. I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world,” the 26-year-old actress told The Sunday Times.
“But considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized (my private life) affects a greater number of people than just me. It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves.”
