In a new interview with Variety, actress Kristen Stewart has opened up about her sexuality... sort of.

After being photographed with reported girlfriend Soko (with whom she has now reportedly broken up with), Stewart responded to questions about her dating life in the most cryptic, Kristen Stewart fashion.

Pointing out that when she "was dating a guy, [she] would never talk about [her] relationships to anyone," Stewart says, "I feel the same way now".

"And I'm very obviously... " she adds, before stopping herself.

She describes the start of their relationship as "very OG".

She calls young people inspiring, saying: “There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool... you don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself.”

Speaking of her own experience, she said that she felt pressure to "have some answer" about who she was. 

"I felt this weird responsibility," she says, adding that she "didn't want to seem fearful" about defining her sexuality.

When no label seemed appropriate, she says she decided not to label herself at all: “I was like, ‘F—k, how do I define that?’ I’m not going to."

Despite her decision not to define her sexuality, Stewart says she's not hiding from anyone, and that's why we're getting those paparazzi photos of her with women she's romantically linked with in the tabloids. 

“That’s really important to me," she says. "As much as I want to protect myself, it’s not about hiding. As soon as you start throwing up so many walls, you cannot see over them yourself, so you just start isolating in a way that’s not honest. I definitely found where I’m comfortable. I don’t take credit for that.”

Discussing the LGBTQI community, without saying as much, she says: “I find the movement that’s occurring to be so important, that I want to be part of it."

When the Variety reporter conducting the interview asks her to clarify, Stewart laughs. “Like, say it so [you] can print it?” she says. “Me not defining it right now is the whole basis of what I’m about. If you don’t get it, I don’t have time for you.”

Sorry, she's not sorry.
