Kristen Stewart’s mum says her daughter is happy with girlfriend, Kristen Stewart’s mother says she is happy that her daughter is in a loving relationship with Kristen Stewart girlfriend “Alicia Cargile”approval.
Kristen Stewart’s mum has given her daughter’s girlfriend the stamp of approval.
The 25-year-old star – who previously dated her ‘Twilight’ co-star Robert Pattinson for five years – has been rumoured to be romancing her personal assistant Alicia Cargile for some time, and now her mother Jules has confirmed they are in a relationship.
Jules, 55, told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: “What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy. She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices. I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.
“People are good to do whatever they like as long as they’re not hurting people or breaking the law. I have gay friends, family members, I’m accepting of people, we are all free to choose who we want to love.”
The ‘Twilight’ actress broke up with co-star Robert, 29, two years ago after she was seen kissing married Rupert Sanders, 44, who directed her in ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, and though Kristen was devastated by their split, Jules believes that her daughter has moved on and supports her right to choose who she falls in love with.
She said: “I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers.
Kristen Stewart’s apparent coming out, via an interview her mum gave to Britain’s Sunday Mirror, in which she also revealed how her daughter was raised with wolves, isn’t, perhaps, the typical experience.
The Twilight actor is now thought to be dating her personal assistant, Alicia Cargile, after she split in 2012 from actor Robert Pattinson in what may have been the world’s most scrutinised relationship.
According to the paper, Stewart’s mother said: “She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices. I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”
We’re not sure how Stewart feels about her mum speaking about her love life to the press, but it’s great that she has support. Good news for us, too, that we’ll have to read less about her “gal pal”. Gal pal.
It’s been clear for a while that Stewart sees sexuality as fluid – in particular because when asked this exact question by Harper’s Bazaar, she replied: “Absolutely, yes” – but this is the first acknowledgement of her relationship.
But what’s coming out like for the rest of us? Well, first of all, we’re coming out all of the time – it’s not usually a one-off event. But here are some of the more usual reactions to that first time.
