Kristen Stewart is out promoting her new movie Charlie’s Angels, a new take on the classic spy franchise. Stewart brings humor and sass to her role as Sabine, who is “definitely gay in the movie,” and director Elizabeth Banks said that she wanted to bring Stewart’s own personality to the role.
“When I cast [Kristen Stewart], I just wanted her to be… I just felt like she’s almost the way Kristen is. I don’t feel there is a label that fits her. The only thing that was important to me was to not label it as anything. It’s fine if the media wants to label it, I think that’s OK, but I didn’t do that. I just let her be herself in the film.”
“I wanna be somewhat reasonable about it, but I think good things happen fast. I can’t say right now because she’ll find out,” she joked. “I have a couple plans that are just the coolest things to do that I don’t think…I think it’s pretty undeniable.”
While they’ve only become romantic recently, Stewart met Meyer six years ago. Stewart told Stern that “all bets were off” when they met, and that their connection was immediate.
“She rocked up at a friend’s birthday party and I was like, ‘Where have you been and how have I not known you?’ The first time I told her I love her it was really late and we were in some shitty bar, and her friends were there or whatever and they walked out, and I was just like, ‘Oh, man, I’m so f—ing in love with you.’ Like, done. It wasn’t like ‘a thing,’ and it also was so obvious.”
Stewart continued to play coy about what she has planned for her “brilliant” partner, saying “I have this really cool thing that I’m going to do that I want to tell you but I just can’t.”
In the same interview, she also opened up about her former relationship with her Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson, who she describes as her “first love.”
“It’s so weird, like, actually being honest about this. It’s been so heavily consumed. I have this fear that people would assume that maybe I’m, like, you know — it’s kind of attention-y, like, ‘Oh, cool, you’re still, like, pushing that narrative’ or whatever. It’s like, no, I’ve actually never been allowed to just say what happened. Because I was so self-conscious about seeming like an attention-seeker.”
