It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine to make even one other person feel good about themselves,” Stewart said of coming out and publicly embracing her sexuality.“If it didn’t seem like a relevant topic, like something that needed help, I would have kept my life private for ever.” She continued, “But then I can’t walk outside holding somebody’s hand, as I’m followed everywhere.
It didn't help that she was starring in a huge film franchise, either..
Apparently, Camila’s devotees thought exposing their favorite as a liar would help her somehow.
During the chat, which covered topics both professional and personal, Stewart explained why she shied away from discussing her romance with Pattinson while they dated, and why she’s more open now. I didn’t talk about my first relationships that went public because I wanted things that are mine to be mine.
The Twilight co-stars began dating in 2008, before splitting in 2014, with the actress claiming the relationship became “not real life”. It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life,” she added.
“People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,” Stewart told The New York Times. “It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.” Stewart recently said that she is “happier” since going public about her sexuality.
