And Kristen makes a point to emphasize that her going public with her relationships today has nothing to do with a moment of "Now I’ve realized who I am!
" but rather a realization of an opportunity to let fans and critics alike possibly see themselves and their lives reflected back through her and her own relationships.
But then I can’t walk outside holding somebody’s hand, as I’m followed everywhere,” she said.
“When I was dating Rob, the public was the enemy — and that is no way to live.
"It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves."As for her screen time with Pattinson, Stewart says she understands why not everyone would like theblowup as being generally traumatic,” she notes.
“It would take someone with a really unhealthy amount of ego to be upset that everyone doesn’t love them.
"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.""When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy -- and that is no way to live," Stewart admits.
I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world." But as she's gotten older — and experienced firsthand more of the positive and negative sides to superstar levels of fame — she has realized that relationship struggles are a universal experience, and they affect "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."Since going public with her subsequent relationships, Kristen reflects that in an ideal world, while she "would have kept [her] life private forever," she was ultimately confronted with the choice of not being able to "walk outside holding somebody’s hand, as I’m followed everywhere" or not being able to be fully present in a relationship."When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy—and that is no way to live," she adds.
She's also moved on romantically to Stella Maxwell.
The two crashed a wedding in Canada over the weekend.
Kristen did not film a movie in 2013, but since 2014 the films have been non-stop.
