Aww! It’s heartwarming to see Kristen Stewart so smitten!
In the September issue of Elle UK, the actress made her FIRST EVER public declaration of love for longtime girlfriend Alicia Cargile while also discussing the on-and-off again nature of their relationship.
Let’s just say the candid convo is a BIG departure from Stewart’s days of vaguely addressing her relationship with Alicia. While K.S. has no problem with PDA and red carpet appearances alongside her lady, we’ve never heard her directly refer to Cargile in an interview before!
While the actress admits there have been a few bumps in the road for the couple (we’re looking at you, SoKo!), she admits the two are now in an amazing place:
“I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.”
So cute! We can’t help but wonder if there are wedding bells in the duo’s future — they have been together since early 2014, after all!
To make matters even better, Kristen went on to describe how she has positively changed her approach to relationships and the media, a subject we reported on last week. It’s obvious Stew’s relaxed perspective has improved her romance with Alicia!
Speaking on her “happier” state of mind, the 26-year-old revealed:
“When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I’m so much happier.”
Just fabulous! There’s nothing better than living your truth!
So, do YOU think Kristen and Alicia are in it for the long haul?
