Kristen Stewart has always had a complicated relationship with exposing her life to the media, and when it comes to defining her sexuality, it’s been no different.

But now in a recent interview with Variety she is explaining that she doesn’t think it needs to be labeled at all.

“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.”

She admitted that she felt a lot of pressure around labels when she was growing up, but now believes that sexual fluidity is a part of some people’s experiences.

“I had to have some answer about who I was. I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn’t want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate,” she explained. “So I was like ‘F—, how do I define that? I’m not going to.”

Right now she’s focusing on living her life and hoping that the message she’s sending to others who might be struggling with their sexuality is a good one.

“I didn’t want to be this example: it’s so easy. I don’t want it to seem like it was stupid for them to have a hard time.”

Although she does admit that there seems to be a lot more acceptance than their used to be.

“There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool. You don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself.”

Kristen’s current project is Woody Allen’s Cafe Society which she stars in with Jesse Eisenberg, Steve Carell, Parker Posey, Blake Lively and Corey Stoll. The film is premiering at Cannes and will be wide released on July 15.
