Kristen Stewart was the darling of this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and she is living up to her rising fame with another hot movie with Nicholas Hoult. In Equals, Kristen has been known to bring up some serious onscreen chemistry with her co-star, and many fans are wondering if this has anything to do with her past relationship with Robert Pattinson.
“In director Drake Doremus’ new romantic sci-fi, Equals, human emotions have been eradicated from society,” reports Yahoo! Movies. “Contact between people is not allowed. And sex is the forbidden fruit of society. Upon any hint of feelings (a condition called “Switched on Syndrome”), that citizen is forced to take a suppressant until they’re better or they are eventually ostracized.”
“We wanted to make it look foreign, and found, and completely natural — but new,” Kristen said according to Yahoo! Movies.
She added, “it was a really good time for both of us to make this movie.”
“I think they were just losing themselves,” the director said, stating that he was “a passenger” during filming. “At that point, they’re just in it.”
This comes right after Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were supposedly caught on a coffee date.
“Apparently, the Twilight actor and his former flame, Kristen Stewart, 26, recently met up for coffee not long after it was revealed that she had split from Soko, 30,” reports Hollywood Life. “Could these two be getting back together, or have they just become really good friends in their romantic aftermath?”
While his relationship with FKA Twigs have been going steadier than ever, she has been on a more exploratory time in her life, choosing female partners and often changing them too.
Her latest girlfriend is Alicia Cargile, who is also her personal assistant.
“Just a few months ago, Kristen Stewart was running around Paris with her then love, French musician SoKo (also known as Stephanie Sokolinski),” reports Huffington Post. “But on Thursday, the Café Society actress was seen holding hands with her rumored girlfriend and personal assistant, Alicia Cargile, as the two exited LAX together. The two were previously linked together in 2015.”
Maybe the 26-year-old actress is feeling the momentum of her career and using it to be bolder and more experimental in her life choices.
“Ask anyone who the biggest star at the Cannes Film Festival was, and the resounding answer would no doubt be Kristen Stewart,” reports Vogue. “From her opening-night appearance in Woody Allen’s Café Society to her multitude of winning red carpet looks (including a controversial Vans moment), she was everywhere.”
With that kind of vibe behind her, the actress may be feeling freer to challenge norms and commonly held beliefs.
In fact, she expressed such sentiments in a recent interview.
“There’s acceptance that’s become really rampant and cool,” the actress said to Variety. “You don’t have to immediately know how to define yourself. I had to have some answer about who I was [growing up]. I felt this weird responsibility, because I didn’t want to seem fearful. But nothing seemed appropriate. So I was like, ‘F*ck, how do I define that?’ I’m not going to. Plus, I didn’t want to f*ck with other people. 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.”
Looks like Nicholas Hoult won’t be her next romantic victim though.
Whoever Kristen is currently involved in, it seems like the actress will not settle for anything less than perfection. The fact that she is in her 20s in Hollywood means that she is willing to wait it out until the perfect opportunity arrives. And right now, that is Alicia Cargile.
Do you think Kristen Stewart will continue to keep in contact with Robert Pattinson as she progresses in her career?
