Kristen Stewart: Robert Pattinson & I were in ‘this ridiculous comic book’


Even though I absolutely hate Kristen Stewart’s hair these days, I do think this is a great editorial. Kristen covers the latest issue of Elle UK, and the inside shots are even better than the cover. This week marks an odd anniversary for our dear K-Stew. It was four years ago this week that Kristen’s reputation was in free fall after Us Weekly published photos from their investigative piece about her affair with her married director, Rupert Sanders. Their affair cost Rupert his marriage (his wife filed for divorce six months to the day after the affair become public) and it nearly cost Kristen her relationship with Robert Pattinson. Rob stuck with Kristen for many more months, but of course they did break up eventually. I bring up this history because Kristen sort of references her last boyfriend (Rob) and how it’s different for her to have a girlfriend now (she’s currently back on with Alicia Cargile). Some highlights:

On her recent projects and enjoying her work: ‘I have a really strong sense of identity when I’m working. If I’m having a bad day or something personal, or existential, or hormonal – if anything brings me down, I’m lucky if I have to go to work that day. And it could be anything, it could be a photoshoot for Chanel.”

On her positive outlook: ‘I obviously hope everything going on right now will work out, but I am confident that life is good and I’ll be OK whatever happens. So in moments when that is cloudy and I feel saturated and unable to engage in how good life can be, however consuming those feelings are, they are so momentary…I’m think pretty good at being happy.’

On her previous struggles with anxiety: ‘I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacks…I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn’t anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I’d be like, ‘Maybe I’m going to get sick’… It’s kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that’s not to say I don’t get worried.’

On her love for girlfriend Alicia Cargile: ‘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.’

On being more open about her relationship: ‘When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, 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.’

[From Elle UK]

The way she explains it, I understand what she means about “to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it,” although she does know that was the implication when she was dating Rob as well, right? I understand her logic and reasoning, but just on a superficial level, it’s always looked like she was somewhat ashamed to be with Rob because she was so squirrelly about their relationship. In retrospect, looking at her relationship with Rob is even stranger compared to how she is with Alicia (and how she was with Soko). I also think that the whole “I outgrew it” thing could apply to her relationships – the thing with Sparkles was at a time in her life when everything felt so fragile and anxious for her, and she outgrew it. Now she’s happier and more open. Plus, she “outgrew” Rob, Twilight and that whole Twihard narrative.

    Michael K’s take of the pics..”zombified and punkified Wednesday Addams after smoking a morphine-laced joint” beats them all

  2. Ms. Turtle says:

    Finally, a KStew I might be able to get on board with.

  3. Luca76 says:

    I’m glad she’s able to be more honest and open, I’ll be curious to see if the more comfortable she is with herself the less pretentious and idiotic she’ll become.

  4. Nibbi says:

    i actually like her a lot in this interview. it really does sound like she’s growing up.

  5. Naya says:

    The HKN Haven people must be losing their minds. Who am I kidding, they’ll just claim that Elle blackmailed Kristen into saying this with the threat of publishing photos of her two babies.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      What? Have you wandered over to the darknet? Who are these people?

      I think she makes a lot of sense here. That relationship with RP must’ve been a nightmare to navigate, those Twihards are batshit crazy. Hiding it was the only way to go, really. The Minicooper episode was not okay but you know what, I’m sort of happy that a woman can have that kind of “scandal”, then move on to openly date two women, and her career thrives. That’s new, isn’t it? I love it.

      • Naya says:

        Lolest. They are not on the dark net but its definitely a blackhole of humanity. (Advance apologies for the wall of text)

        As best as I can explain hkn haven; its a fairly sizeable group of Robert and Kristen fans who dont believe they ever broke up. In fact, they believe they not only married, they’ve had two kids in the last four years. The eldest is a girl named Sweetpea and the other is…who cares, its nuts. Robert and Kristen also have a lovely home in LA where they are also raising two dogs.

        Alicia is supposedly Kristens cousin. Everytime you see them kiss, its merely sisterly bonding. Soko was a musician that Kristen was trying to help out with extra publicity. Thats why she made sure to be papped holding her hand, to raise her profile. Now here is the truly disgusting part, they believe that FKA Twigs is musical act that Robert decided to promote. But according to them, FKA tricked him into investing so much money in her that he is now trapped as her PR agent (???) until he sees a financial return. They NEVER refer to her by her name, they call her “IT”. I had heard about their craziness for years on Datalounge but it wasnt until I youtubed FKA Twigs music that I found out how insidious they are. They leave the most disgusting comments (although Twigs fans began pushing back when she complained about the bullying last year. The HKN Haven crowd are less vocal on her media now but they still spew their crap on their own platforms on social media and their blog.

        Anyway, they basically stalk anybody remotely connected to Kristen, Robert and Twigs and draw inference from nothing. I dont know who they are but they claim that one of them is a cop who has seen the marriage certificate and that another is a showbiz journalist who confirms that there is an industry wide embargo on reporting the “truth” about the happy pair. Their biggest source, they claim, is Kristens anonymous cousin. This phantom cousin has evven sent them pics of the babies, which later turned out to be stolen from some poor womans facebook album. They dont believe the image theft claims though, they believe that Rob and Kristen were just trying to protect their babies photos so they paid the woman to lie.

        Tldr; Its a deep dark hole of denial and I suspect mental illness that has a surprisingly large following.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        I’m a little sorry I asked. Oh my god. I never say this but these women need Jesus. Or at least some form of divine intervention because … SWEETPEA??? Oh hell, now I have to go look. Not now because our IT department is probably already wondering what’s wrong with me but later. Holy crap.

      • cindy says:

        I wish someone with more talent than me would write a horror based on this.

      • senna says:

        @Naya just when I thought I could not possibly enjoy your comments more, it turns out you’re also a secret HKN-hate-read-junkie. SIGH.

        Though I don’t know that “hate” is the right word for the sense that I have when reading that site. It’s more like a weird combination of shock, horror, delight, and bafflement, with a large helping of disgust over how they treat FKA Twigs. (it makes no sense that they hate her so much if she’s “in” on the fake PR relationship, but logic has never been their strong suit). You come for the suspension of disbelief that this can be a real site; you stay for the logic pretzels and the assortment of images with red circles drawn on them to “prove” that every image of Rob is photoshopped.

        One thing you didn’t mention is that a significant portion of their readership seems to be grandmothers who love to discuss the local weather and their grandchildren in the comments in the same breath as they discuss whatever made-up gossip HKN is peddling that day.

      • Bethany says:

        HatersKnowNothing blogger is a 55 year old housewife from Ohio. The “Cousin” is a 56 year old woman who lives in Texas (she looks like Dolly Parton on steroids) and the other blogger – Running With Nails – lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. They are all psychos. The latest news is that Kristen is pregnant with her third child which is due in November.

      • I Choose Me says:

        I read Naya’s post about the Twihard crazies and now I’m sitting here bug-eyed and blinking real slow. Just reading that made me want to back out of the room slowly.

        Internet Fandom can be a seriously spooky, batsh-t place.

        #Rebuke It Ra. #Vanquish it Vishnu.

      • K2 says:

        I thought the whole thing sounded hilarious until you got to the FKA Twigs part. Now I feel a depth of sympathy for Pattinson I never expected to. Imagine “fans” who do that to someone you love.

      • Hotpockets says:

        Naya, I made the mistake of visiting their hknhaven website. Who are these people???! It is is entertaining, but it makes me feel bad for Twigs and how they write about her. Another website that is just as delusional is menwhogotheirownway or rather, MGTOW. They hate women and think women are they downfall of society, seriously. The level of hate towards 50% of the population is UNREAL.

      • TotallyOld says:

        Her career is thriving now but all these movies were made prior to her unofficial “coming out”. It remains to be seen if she is left unscathed or if she is like so many other good actresses who came out. When’s the last time you’ve heard from Ellen Page? Ellen DeGeneres was a movie actor before she came out now she’s a TV host (a very successfull and much loved host). Female actors have a much harder time than men who are gay when it comes to Hollywood.

        For now I will wait and see how KStew is doing this time next year.

        Oh, she and Rob outgrew each other, it was not one sided.

    • pikawho? says:

      I looked at that blog once for the lulz and came away so so traumatised.

      • L84Tea says:

        I just looked. Whoa. Those people are cray-cray.

      • Ms. Turtle says:

        I just googled it and read their latest post and comments. Wow. I like how one commenter said she’ll never believe they’re not together unless she hears it from Kristen herself on live tv. LMAO. Ok. Wow – crazy!

      • RedOnTheHead says:

        Me too! I went on there once after seeing it mentioned in a comment section on this blog. I had never heard of it prior to that. Once was enough. It was so disturbing. Seriously disturbing. It wasn’t just the absolute bat shit crazy stuff being said, it was also the tone of the writing. The vitriol was bad enough but what got me was the forcefulness of presenting the “facts” about Robsten that were “the evidence” that these nut jobs were the only ones with the real, true story. Creepy. If I ever met someone IRL that mentioned regular reading of that site I would back away slowly while hearing the music from Psycho playing in my head.

    • Em' says:

      Those people are so batsh!t crazy, KStew could get married in public and Rob could hold FKA Twigs while she gives birth to their baby on live television they would still believe it’s all a stunt so Robsten could live their unbrokeness hidden with their 3 babies (they probably thinks pregnant again, GASP ! maybe with twins this time)

      Cue to me living to watch the lunatics in action. My popcorn is big enough for all of us.

    • anotherk8 says:

      Are these the same people who’ve moved on to trolling Outlander? I read some stuff last night about the stalking of that show/it’s stars which as super super disturbing– apparently it is the same people who are obsessed with K.Stew and Sparkles. Made me have more sympathy for those two than I ever have before. Jaw-droppingly disturbing & bizarre.

      • Ninks says:

        It’s a phenomenon that occurs in almost every fandom. It’s called tinhatting. Seriously crazy stuff. But it all follows the exact same pattern. It’s a couple in a relationship forced to keep quiet by management who control every aspect of the media to preventany leakage. Only the smartest truest fans can see through the bs and read the hints to uncover the truth. Larry, j2, Joshifer, Terry, domlijah. Look them up, it’s fascinating.

      • Luca76 says:

        Actually yes the theory is HKN or one of her minions has moved over to Outlander as she’s realized that the clock is ticking on the Twihard lie.

    • Kitkatk8 says:

      Oh my goodness I forgot about those loonies!!!!!!! You’re right though, you just know they’re having a field day with this

  6. ell says:

    she was far younger when she was dating rpatz though, so i bet that has something to do with it as well. as a bisexual myself i’m happy she sounds comfortable in her bisexuality, and i completely understand what she’s saying.

    • Colette says:

      Has she said she is bisexual? I’m asking because I know several gay people who have had several heterosexual relationships when they were younger but identity as gay.

      • ell says:

        people who date both genders are bisexuals, end of. unless they decide to define themselves as something different, and that is their choice and i respect it, however kristen is talking about ‘when i was dating a guy and now i’m dating a girl’.

        i know i’m extremely touchy on this subject, given the amount of biphobia i had to experience from the l&g part of the lgbtq+, and i’ve also met a few people who identify as gay because they refuse to identify as bisexual even though that’s most likely what they are.

        TL;DR unless she comes out saying she’s a lesbian, she’s dated men AND women hence she’s bisexual.

      • Well says:

        She says she’s not into labels and is attracted to people regardless of gender

      • Colette says:

        Well my best friend has dated men and women and Identify as gay so I let people define themselves and don’t make assumptions.I stopped making assumptions about people’s sexual orientations when I found out my ex boyfriend was on the DL.He identifies as gay,not bisexual, and is engaged to a bisexual man.

      • senna says:

        I think this is such an interesting discussion to have. On the one hand – people deserve to choose what labels they are assigned. But how do you best respect people who do not want to label themselves?

        I see this “I don’t need to label myself” stance as an outfall of our increasingly open attitude towards sexual identities. You can be in a “glass closet” without it being a source of shame nowadays, but you will still get questioned about your sexual identity, as Kristen’s case illustrates.

        If one’s identity were only relevant to the individual in question, no one would need labels. You don’t label yourself for yourself, I don’t think – you do it mostly for others to show your allegiance. The only thing that gives me pause about the “no labels” people is that it seems a little unfair to other members of the marginalized group to not stand up and declare your identity. You get to benefit from the hard work these groups have done to become accepted and to approach the mainstream, while not declaring your allegiance yourself.

        The burden of accepting a label is up to the individual in question and it is unfair to tell people they need to carry it, of course. I just don’t know that everyone who is into the “I eschew labels” descriptor has really thought this stance through in terms of how it affects other members of their community rather than how it makes them feel individually. I suspect Kristen is coming to terms with her identity, has recently taken steps to become more publicly out, and maybe someday she’ll clarify whether she identifies as bisexual, a lesbian, or pansexual. I don’t think identifying with a label is something owed to anyone, but I do think it furthers the acceptance and visibility of people who do identify with these labels.

  7. Spiderpig says:

    The Haven are claiming that Elle is “just a tabloid” and thus not a valid source.

    I don’t really know why they’re not going with the obvious track, since they’ve insisted all along that Rob is faking a relationship in order to protect his wife and children from the paps and the Russians. Surely it would make more sense to their existing narrative to claim Kristen coming out is just another level of protection?

  8. LannisterForever says:

    I think she’s so beautiful and good for her if she’s happy with Alicia. But something about her still rubs me the wrong way and I can’t really pinpoint it..

    • OrigialTessa says:

      The Rupert Sanders thing still rubs me the wrong way. She had an affair with another woman’s husband. That happened. Finding herself now doesn’t change the fact that she was a very rotten person once.

      • Hi high horse says:

        Lmao shit happens. People make mistakes. it’s been 4 years. Even his ex wife says she has empathy for her.

        And Rob’s best friend was recently hanging with Alicia and some other Kristen friends while Kristen was away working. Seems like there’s no animosity among any of them . So yeah, relax!

      • anon33 says:

        Ah yes, the old “people make mistakes” defense. Sorry, but she’s a sh8tbird. end of.

        Nor do I see how “friends of friends” hanging with other “friends of friends” proves anything about the two people in question who, you know, WEREN’T THERE.

      • Anname says:

        Thanks anon33, I agree. These people who brush off the cheating like oh whatever (or try to blame Rob in some way) baffle me. I know Rob is long over it, but I can not be a fan of hers after the way she treated him then. It also annoys me that she gives interviews with oblique references to their relationship, so it gets dragged out in the press again. I wish she would take a cue from Rob, and leave it alone. He gave her the out a few years ago – shit happens, and that’s literally the only comment he has ever made about it. Using her “heartbreak” to sell Equals was cheap, considering how that relationship ended. Imagine the Kristen fan reactions if Rob started talking about his heartbreak to promote a movie – they would go nuts.

        It’s great she is in a happier place now, but I still find her insufferable, self centered, and immature.

      • TotallyOld says:

        Cosign with @Anname, @OrigialTessa, and @Anon33. YES, EVERYTHING YOU ALL JUST SAID! Woohoo!!

      • Seriously says:

        Ah, the self-rightousness of celebitchy’s perfect little matrons never disapoints!

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        Pointing out the fact that everybody makes mistakes isn’t the same thing as brushing off saying it’s ok to cheat/sleep with other spouses. It’s just a way of saying that after 4 or 5 years, it’s definitely time for those of us who weren’t the effected parties to move on.

  9. Bettyrose says:

    I like these pics, and I read the entire interview without cringing. Huh. I always thought the Twilight romance was to some degree studio generated. Either way, they were teens thrown together in an onscreen relationship, working closely for years. How wouldn’t that be confusing? Separating the fictional romance from the real one in your most confused hormonal years. I love her honesty about struggling with wanting a private relationship with Alicia but understanding the social implications of hiding a same-sex relationship as a celebrity. KStew has layers. Who knew?

    • Clucky says:

      I also thought the relationship between Kristen and Rob was to promote Twilight. When she got caught cheating on him in such a public and humiliating way yet he stayed in the relationship until just after the last movie came out seemed like too much of a coincidence.

      I also always thought that was part of the reason why she was so reluctant to just admit their relationship. She knew it was fake and was secretly hating how much of a sellout she was.

      • another nina says:

        Initially, I thought that it was a legitimate affair but later on also came to the conclusion that it was a pr – judging by exact timing, Pattinson’s behavior, complete lack of narrative, etc.
        I do believe they were good friends, at least at the beginning…
        The reason she can’t tell anything about it is most likely because there was nothing to tell…

      • Bethany says:

        It wasn’t fake. He was genuinely heartbroken when she cheated.

      • Valois says:

        Nah, I really don’t think it was completely fabricated. The studio pushed it, sure, and I would guess that they talked them into or encouraged them to not (or at least not publicly) break up before they were done promoting the last film. But I do think that essentially, their relationship was real.

      • Anname says:

        Nah, they both actively resisted studio training during the Twilight years. They both cut their hair for other projects, against studio demands, and wouldn’t attend any media training. There is no way they would pretend to be together for 4 years because the studio wanted it. And there are plenty of private pics of them together on their downtime to prove it was real (although probably not the epic romance it was made out to be by fans). I remember an interview with producer Wyck Godfrey (in Time magazine?) where he said the studio was worried they would break up before getting the last one filmed. The real relationship was an actual risk for the studio.

    • K.C. says:

      I always assumed it was a fake relationship, but then again, I can’t imagine either one of them willingly faking a relationship for so long. Neither one are Hollywood-types, at all. They both pretty much stay out of the spotlight and don’t seem to do much of anything for PR, so I have to think it was a real relationship that was heavily promoted by the studio. For two actors seemingly looking to avoid that lifestyle, that must’ve been tough to maintain.

      The cheating bit was weird, though. She and Rob were BARELY photographed together in all the time they dated, and she gets pap’d publicly cheating? What? That’s still a mystery. The man she cheated with got a divorce though, so I guess that was real, too? So strange.

  10. K.C. says:

    I’ve seen/read a couple interviews with her lately that lead me to believe she has done a lot of growing up. I think she’s someone who just genuinely doesn’t care for the spotlight, and that used to translate in a really negative way when she was young. Seems like she has come into her own and feels more confident these days. Good for her. I’m liking her more lately.

  11. lizzie says:

    i love how nonchalant she is approaching her sexuality and relationships. i think the deliberate decision to normalize the discussion around people’s sexuality is so important for public figures. kstew is nailing this.

    also – sometimes she is one note as an actress but she is a *very* good model.

  12. JustJen says:

    She shouldn’t be so quick to talk badly about Twilight. If not for that, she’d only be known as the girl who was in Panic Room.

    • perplexed says:

      Before Twilight, it seemed she’d only be known as the boy in Panic Room.

    • Jane says:

      She wasn’t talking about twilight. Just tabloids and gossip blogs turning them into characters from a comic book in real life that was far from reality.

      Kristen always supports twilight and the director of the first twilight was at her latest premiere!

    • LooseSeal says:

      I don’t understand when people say this about Kristen. She was already making a name for herself as an indie darling before Twilight came along. I remember when she took Twilight people thought it would ruin her indie cred. It didn’t. It just gave her a truckload of cash and the financial freedom to be choosy about her projects.

      • TotallyOld says:

        but at the time she took Twilight, she had no idea nor did her fans that it would be anything other than a small indie film. So your comment doesn’t hold water. She & Rob both believed it would be quickly forgotten when they made it. Rob is on record saying he only signed on because he had a “crush” on Kristen and wanted to work with her.

  13. Lucy says:

    She has such an odd way of speaking, sometimes it takes a bit for me to understand what she’s trying to say. It’s nice that she finally feels like she can openly talk about her relationship, though, and I believe her when she says they’re happy together.

  14. Jane says:

    For those astounded at the HKN site , you should have seen the nonsten site pattinson Stan’s had thru the run of twilight. Set up as a hate site to kstew fans but mainly there to prove they weren’t together. It was insane. So there has always been subsets of fans who refused to accept reality.

    Kristen looks great and she really seems to have come into her own now. I like how she says that even if things change in how her life now, she will still be OK. a very positive outlook.

    As for being more open, it’s a little different dating a random person v dating your co-star on a huge franchise, who is a fixation of many deranged middle aged women. I don’t blame her for trying to hide it. Now that v she’s free of that she can be like everyone else. Obviously getting older helps with figuring out where to put your energy.

    I still disagree with those who are all “at last, she’s not hiding Alicia” . There are photos of them kidding and holding hands from 2/3 yrs ago!! It’s kind of insulting to her when she so clearly is not ashamed of being into girls.

    More than anything I’m happy her anxiety has eased. I used to feel sorry for her when everyone trashed her because I saw that it was something she suffered from. People can be so harsh.

    Jealous that she gets so much from her work. I envy anyone who loves their job that much

  15. Insomniac says:

    Good for her — she seems a lot happier and more relaxed in photos I’ve seen of her these days. And I love her in that last black outfit. I’m a big fan of GothStew.

  16. Assf says:

    Ok we all know the whole rob patteraon thing was just a pr thing…lets stop acting like it was real

  17. Loo says:

    I’ve seen people on social media keep saying that she came out as a lesbian but I read no such thing into what she said. Listen she is young maybe she will realize that she is a lesbian in the future but until then I will refer to her as bisexual because that’s what she, in so many words, is saying that she is.

  18. Starbuck says:

    I feel sorry for anyone that is in a relationship with this girl. She has the same pattern in all of her relationships – drama, volatility and only acknowledging them when she’s forced. I’ve always thought she seemed to be everything that her ex Soko ending up stating she is. Complete head case. I would feel sorry for her if she wasn’t so arrogant. I feel sorry for girlfriend but maybe she finally found someone who will keep taking her back so matter what she does. My guess is that they break up within 6 months. This girl has a lot of growing up to do still, if she ever gets there at all living in Hollywood.

    • Sit down says:

      lmao such an expert in two strangers relationship, ain’t ya!! Who is forcing her to do anything? Who says it was Kristen who ended it? Volatile? Send to me you are projecting your own experiences onto them.

      Either way they are happy and it’s their business if it works out or not. Seems to me that kstew is doing just fine 😉

      • anon33 says:

        This person is posting similar comments under multiple names. She’s also “hi high horse” above.

      • Starbuck says:

        Aww, sweet pea, you seem to be taking this very personally in defense of someone we admittedly both do not know. I’m going strictly from interviews, which quite frankly do not paint a very good picture. I’m sorry if seeing some stranger having a girl suck her thumb in a parking lot in full view of photographers and then going back to her girlfriend a couple of weeks later seems like regular behavior to you. This, in addition to the inarticulate verbal diarrhea and lack of remorse for any of her past mistakes and complete lack of charm cause me to have a formed opinion of her that was validated by the public comments of someone who’d recently been “very, very in love” with her. I have an opinion – I’m allowed. I’m engaging in celebrity gossip, on *shocker* a gossip website.

    • TotallyOld says:

      @anon33, yes I noticed the style was the same. Think there was one other name on this board that is the same person.

  19. Ana says:

    It sort of seems like they break up whenever Kstew needs some space -or some SOKO. Her girlfriend seems like a doormat, but I guess that’s what happens if one person is a beautiful movie star and the other is a cilvilan who looks like the back of a bus.

  20. JenniferJustice says:

    She does seem more mature and better grounded in this interview, but then I remember it was only a few months ago that she was with Soko and all that drama. I’d like to think she’s matured, but only time will tell – 2 months doesn’t really count.

  21. Janey says:

    Screw all you “She has to mature” gang. Its her life and y’all are just believing stuff on gossip sites which is half truths and opinions. She’s a very famous former child actress who has carved a very nice career for herself after being slut shamed beyond belief and is happy in romance and life. I doubt half of you are as “mature” as her.

    I know I’d be a wreck dealing with all that crap.

    I think Stewart does seem very flakey when it comes to romantic relationships.

    And no I don’t think her Twilight relationship was PR. Pattinson and Stewart aren’t even media whores and they never even covertly promoted that relationship. I think it was real but I suspect it was winding down before she had the affair with the director.

    She was 17 when she made the first Twilight film and met Pattinson. So basically a child who gut sucked into the hellhole vortex that became the Twilight monsternomenon. I always felt bad for the awkward, lost, confused and angry kid that she clearly was back then. I’m glad she managed to break free of that mess which was probably slowly sucking the sanity out of her.
    Good luck with your future life Kristen!
