A long and eventful few years after the end of K-Stew and R-Patz, Kristen Stewart is opening up about what it was really like to date Robert Pattinson during and (briefly) after the Twilight period. Speaking to the T Magazine, K-Stew, who also serves as the cover girl of the latest issue, said that pressure got to the couple. "People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product," she told the magazine. "It wasn't real life anymore. And that was gross to me." K-Stew, who reconciled with Rob after the Rupert Sanders saga, said her view on dating as a famous person isn't about hiding: "It's that I don't want to become part of a story for entertainment value."
Kristen's interview also includes a sweet moment involving her private Instagram account and her scrolling through photos of her and girlfriend Alicia Cargile. "Look how cute she is," she said. "I love her so much." The magazine cautions: "Other affection comments are unprintable; Stewart swears like a trucker."
According to K-Stew, dating girls changed the way she carried her relationships in public. "[I]t seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive. I still want to protect my personal life, but I don't want to seem like I'm protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people."
K-Stew recently spoke about Alicia, a film producer she's been dating on and off for three years, to Elle UK. "I think [right] now I'm just really in love with my girlfriend," she says in the magazine's September 2016 issue. "We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together and this time I was like, 'Finally, I can feel again.'"
