From Blasting Donald Trump To Dating Dylan Meyer, Here’s Why Kristen Stewart is an LGBTQ+ icon

We all know who Kristen Stewart is. Yes, she’s none other than Bella Swan from the Twilight movies. From playing child roles to her recent success, Underwater, this actor/director has starred in 47 movies. Kristen has won 52 awards too. This bisexual turned 30 years old, on April 9th. For such a young age, she sure has accomplished a lot. Today let’s a take look at these facts, that you probably didn’t know about her.

Kristen was told to keep her sexualtiy under wraps: 

Model Stella Maxwell and Stewart were together for two years since 2016. They were even on and off until 2019 August. “I have fully been told, ‘If you just 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”, told Kristen to Harper’s Bazaar.

Kristen decided to ignore this so called suggestion and be true to herself. In July 2019, pictures of Maxwell and her, making out on her yacht were released. “I was informed by an old-school mentality, which is – you want to preserve your career and your success and your productivity, and 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 heterosexual.”

Kristen is not a fan of labels:

With her Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, Stewart led a highly publicised love story. Although she now identifies as a bisexual, Stewart struggled to find her own identity back then. “I’m so lucky to live in this particular time of history,” Kristen said to The Economic Times. “If you were to look at kids right now, even just five years, seven to 10 years younger than me, they would find my sort of struggle to come to terms with identity and communication kind of silly.”

“If you were to have this conversation with someone in high school, they’d probably roll their eyes and go, ‘Why are you complicating everything so much’ … Just sort of do what you want to do’. It’s really nice”, she told The Guardian later.

American President Donald Trump’s obsession was Kristen:

Along with continuous tweets about her, Trump had even wished the actor a happy birthday on 11th April, 2013. His obsession was with her  relationship with Pattinson, specifically. So much that he even invited them as guests for the Miss Universe 2012 pageant, via tweets.

“[Trump was] really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is f***ing crazy,” she told Variety in the year 2017.

Trump might have pushed her to come out:

Before he won the polls, Donald Trump tweeted about her break up with Pattinson in 2012. He said to Robert in one of his tweets that the actor should not even consider taking Stewart back after she cheated with film director Rupert Sanders.

Back then, Sanders wife was Liberty Ross. She starred alongside Stewart in Sander’s movie, Snow White and the Huntsman.

Stewart’s reply to the president was: “Donald, if you didn’t like me then, you’re really probably not going to like me now, ’cause I’m hosting SNL [Saturday Night Live] and I’m like, so gay dude.”

Stewart said declaring her sexuality felt like a “responsibility”. And later gave the clarity that she was bisexual.

“I’ve felt a responsibility to not be this fake thing who’s only putting out what people want to hear, but at the same time not wanting to leak details about my private life. I was in the situation where hiding the fact that you’re with a girl is different from hiding your being with a particular guy, and that’s why I decided to say it openly. But today’s generation doesn’t attach that much importance to gender roles. We don’t believe in those big distinctions and reducing everything to one kind of identity vs another. There’s so much more going on in the inside and a lot of young people today assume that naturally”, she said in an interview with South China Morning Post.

“You’re not confused if you’re bisexual. It’s not confusing at all. For me, it’s quite the opposite,” she said to The Guardian in 2017.

Kristen was Karl Lagerfeld’s muse at Chanel:

“It was an amazing experience. Karl Lagerfeld was a true visionary and someone who loved to be able to improvise and let feelings flow. It’s an instinctive attitude that we both shared, and I have so much admiration for his creative genius, which was so limitless. You learn so much and gain so much inspiration from being around people like that”, she explained her time with Karl to South China Morning Post.

Stewart plans to marry her girl friend Dylan Meyer: 

Kristen announced that she will “absolutely” ask her girlfriend’s hand for marriage – Dylan Meyer. She made this announcement on a long running radio programme, The Howard Stern Show. Dylan is a writer who she met ages ago but didn’t start seeing each other until recently.
