Twilight actress Kristen Stewart opened up about her sexuality for the first time in the September issue of Nylon.

In the past, Stewart’s sexuality has been in question by many.

The 25-year-old dated fellow Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson until 2013 when she had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

Stewart was thrown back into the lesbian rumor mill in June when Mirror released a story quoting her mother, Jules Stewart, saying: “I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl…I accept my daughter loves women and men.”

Jules was referring to Stewart’s personal assistant, Alicia Cargile.

“It’s funny when older actors are like, ‘Just give them a smile.’” Stewart said, referring to the older stars that don’t seem to understand the 24-hour news cycle. “I’m like, ‘You have no idea what you’re talking about, but thanks!’ It must have been awesome without the Internet.”

Stewart said she understands her every move will be documented regardless of whether she wants that or not.

“It’s like I’m involved in a weekly comic book,” she said. “I have this assigned personality…which I helped create, I suppose. People stand to make a lot of money on people like me – it’s this booming industry, so why would you go and change the character that people are paying for?”

As far as her sexuality goes, Stewart said, “Google me, I’m not hiding.”

“If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it,” she said. “But I am an actress, man. I live in the f—king ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.”

Stewart says she believes in sexual fluidity and that “in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight. It’s like, just do your thing.”
