The 'Twilight' star actress who has been careful about declaring her sexuality especially after dating Robert Pattinson for five years, seems to have had an epiphany.

Speaking during her interview with Elle magazine, Stewart disclosed that she is far happier with her girlfriend than she's been in a long time.

Stewart who's back to dating on and off girlfriend, Alicia Gargile, said:

“When I was dating a guy [Jez note: Robert Pattinson, presumably] I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, so I didn’t like it. 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. 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.”

She adds:

“I think also right now I’m just really in love with my girlfriend. We’ve broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, ‘Finally, I can feel again.’”
