Kristen Stewart Opens Up About Why She Chose To Come Out On Live Television
When Kristen Stewart hosted Saturday Night Live last month she dropped a couple of major bombs. One was the f-bomb she accidentally fired off during her monologue and the second was when she publicly came out on live television.

The 26-year-old actress has now spoken out for the first time since the revelation and says that it felt like the right moment to make a statement.
“Honestly, I think it was just funny. Not to diminish the point because I think that saying things so bluntly is absolutely important, but at the same time, the only reason I haven’t ever done that is because there is an ambiguity to that and I wanted things to be really real for me,” she said in an interview with E! News.

She also went on to speak about amazing response she has had from the public since coming out on such a big scale.
“But honestly, it just worked for the joke and it’s entirely true! It wasn’t like, ‘Let’s do this thing that’s going to be so important.’ I just thought it was like a nice, light…and also yeah, I’m so utterly proud that I’ve had so many people be like, ‘Thank you,’ and I’m like, ‘No, thank you.’ It’s kind of mutual, full circle," she said.
What a legend.
