Is Kristen Stewart Happy With Girlfriend Alicia Cargile As Ex Robert Pattinson Connects With FKA Twigs In 2016?

Is Kristen Stewart happy with the way her life is unfolding? The 26-year-old actress has made leaps and bounds in her personal life and professional career in 2016, but the topic of her ex Robert Pattinson is always a little delicate. Will 2016 be the year that Kristen Stewart finally closes her chapter with Robert Pattinson?

With Cafe Society, Personal Assistant, and now Certain Women premiering in 2016, Kristen Stewart is taking Hollywood and indie movie circuit by storm. Seeing how Cafe Society opened this year's Cannes Film Festival, she was certainly the belle of the ball as she basked in her newfound spotlight with her girlfriend, Alicia Cargile.

"They are said to have previously dated back in 2015, breaking things off in October before the actress's romance with SoKo," reports the Daily Mail. "But since rekindling their romance, things seem to be going from strength to strength for Kristen Stewart and former assistant turned girlfriend Alicia Cargile. The 26-year-old even showed off smile as she was spotted in Los Angeles on Saturday shopping at GANT with Alicia, with whom she has been practically inseparable since her split with the French singer earlier this month."

And now that she is premiering yet another movie, she is probably feeling more stable than ever. Certain Women, her newest movie, has already received good reviews.

"The women don't necessarily have a lot in common, but all four are trying to make their way in the lonely Montana plains," reports Slash Film. "Certain Women has already received some excellent reviews on the festival circuit, starting with Sundance earlier this year, and now it's finally headed to theaters."

As for her personal life, the 26-year-old actress has spoken up about her relationship with Alicia Cargile, showing that she isn't afraid of sharing this unusual union in Hollywood.

"When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, so I didn't like it," she told Elle UK.

"We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, 'That's mine. You're making my relationship something that it's not.' I didn't like that," she added. "But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, 'Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I'm not down with it or I'm ashamed of it,' so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I'm so much happier."

With the question "Is Kristen Stewart happier with her girlfriend" out of the way, many people are wondering how Robert Pattinson is doing with his current girlfriend. As it turns out, the Twilight actor is doing more than okay with FKA Twigs.

"There is a special connection between [Robert and FKA Twigs]," an insider told E! Online. "Music is a big part of the relationship, because it means so much to them. They clicked instantly and they literally have been inseparable."

Sounds like they will be together in the foreseeable future!

While their breakup was a painful and public affair, it looks like it was better for both Kristen and Robert to go their own ways after years of dating. Their relationship, which was often under the scrutiny of the public due to the fact that they were co-stars in the Twilight movies, probably became their personal map in navigating romance in Hollywood.

Do you think Kristen and Alicia are in it for the long haul? Do you think they will last longer than Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs? Let us know in the comments below!
