She's happy - what's not to accept: Kristen Stewart's mum delighted as daughter finds love with new girlfriend
Kristen Stewart’s mother Jules is happy about her daughter’s lesbian relationship.
The 25-year-old Still Alice actress has found love with Alicia Cargile, her personal assistant.
And Kristen’s mom Jules thinks their romance is wonderful.
“What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy,” the 55-year-old matriarch told UK newspaper the Sunday Mirror.
“She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices.
“I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”
Jules is very comfortable with Kristen’s bisexual approach to love.
She believes it’s healthy for folks to freely express affection.
“I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want,” Jules explained. “I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers.
“People are good to do whatever they like as long as they’re not hurting people or breaking the law.
“I have gay friends, family members, I’m accepting of people, we are all free to choose who we want to love.”
Kristen split from her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson two years ago after photos of her getting romantic with film director Rupert Sanders went public.
And Jules believes fame had a lot to do with the deterioration of their relationship.
“They were a great couple, but she’s 25 years old and I’d like to see her have a lot more life experience before she chooses someone to settle down with,” Jules said.
“I’m very sad that Kristen and Robert didn’t have a chance to be alone together, they had to have the whole world with them and all the public stuff ruined everything, life became overwhelming.
“But Kristen has learnt to handle her emotions and deal with her problems through the martial arts.”
