Kristen Stewart has spoken candidly about her current and past relationships in a new interview with T Magazine. The actress believes that she "owes something to people", which is why she has decided to be less fiercely guarded about her private life.
"I'm not the typical showman, but at the same time, I want so badly to expose myself," Stewart said. "I want to be understood and I want to be seen, and I want to do that in the rawest, purest, most-naked way I can."
"I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls, it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive," she continued. "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."
That being said, Stewart revealed details of her relationship with her former assistant Alicia Cargile, gushing: "I love her so much, look how cute she is".
Stewart also took the opportunity to comment on the period when she very publicly dated her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.

"People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product," the actress said. "It wasn't real life anymore. And that was gross to me… It's not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I am doing in my life. It's that I don't want to become a part of a story for entertainment value."
