Kristen Stewart has finally broken her silence on US President Donald Trumps' Twitter campaign against her in 2012.

At the time, she was dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson and the pair were the paparazzi's precursor to Kimye. 

During an appearance at the Sundance Film Fesitval on Friday, the same day that Trump was being inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States, she reflected on the frenzied comments he made about her at the time, despite having never met and her not having a Twitter account.

“He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is f***ing crazy," she told Variety.

"I can’t even understand it. I literally cannot even understand it. It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane."

"At that point, he was just, like, a reality star. I had no reference. It wasn’t like really a thing.

"But in retrospect, somebody reminded me of that and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re right!’ He’s probably, like, going to tweet about this."

In 2012, he tweeted that Pattinson should dump Stewart after her affair with director Rupert Sanders.
