So it shouldn’t be shocking that it took the Twilight actress quite a while to get over her breakup to the British cutie.
Earlier this week, the starlet opened up about her past relationship and how she used the heartache as inspiration for her new film Equals with Nicholas Hoult. The film is about a futuristic world where emotions are outlawed. Whoa!
In case you forgot, the brunette beauty was caught cheating on her on-screen (and former off-screen) love with Rupert Sanders back in 2012. Whomp, whomp.
In regards to the scandal, she shared:
“It was incredibly painful. Ugh, f**king kill me.”
Tell us how you really feel. WE KID.
However, KStew wasn’t the only star to channel heartbreak for this movie. In fact, Nicholas had split from Jennifer Lawrence back in August 2014 and started filming the movie at the same time. We can only imagine how emotional that set must’ve been.
“Not all of my friends have been through what I’ve been through. Everything that we did was explorative, and a meditation on what we already knew. We all felt akin by how much we’ve been through, and to utilize that is so scary. And to acknowledge it, reassess, and jump back into it? Usually you want to move on. But at least we could use some of that for some good.”
Wow! What a beautifully honest answer.
Nonetheless, it seems Miz Stewart wants her fans to view her new film and remember that it is possible to love again.
“If you’ve been hurt├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥you know when you’ve broken up with someone and you look at someone walking down the street holding hands and think, ‘Ugh, give it a f**kin’ year. Let me know how you feel in a year, ugh, I don’t’ believe in that.’
Well if we did our jobs right, then it would be to remind you that you can definitely get back to that, and how hard, amazing, and life-fulfilling those feelings were in the very beginning.'”
The Still Alice star went onto explain that she never used anti-depressants to aid in the rough two years following her split from RPatz.
“As far as we know, you have one shot at this and it can be so f**king beautiful, so why lessen the feeling of anything? Why numb yourself? I’m not on antidepressants. I think it’s bizarre.”
Talk about a truth bomb!
Regardless, Kristen has certainly moved on from her former flame and seems over the moon with her rumored girlfriend Alicia Cargile.
The alleged couple still haven’t confirmed their current #RelationshipStatus, but Kristen is not hiding her opinions about same-sex relationships. She even commented on the recent controversy surrounding Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who STILL refuses to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
“Honestly, it makes me so deeply uncomfortable. I feel really bad for her. Anyone who’s so closed off to things that are so apparent? Imagine what else she’s missing out on in life. I’m not making any grand statements about her personally, but if something so glaringly obvious… That fear of the unknown cripples people, breeds hate, and it’s just very sad.”
Here’s hoping that statements like these hint that Alicia and Kristen will make a red carpet debut sooner than later! Fingers crossed.
