Kristen Stewart Opens Up About Girlfriend Alicia Cargile: ‘I’m Just Really in Love’

Kristen Stewart is “really in love” with her girlfriend.

The Twilight alum has officially confirmed that she is dating Alicia Cargile. She talked about her on-again, off-again relationship in an interview in Elle UK’s September issue. “I think also right now I’m 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,’” she said.

She also discussed what it was like to date a guy (which we assume is her ex Robert Pattinson). “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. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that.”

“But then it changed when I started dating a girl,” she continued. “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.”
