Speaking to Associated Press, Stewart says: "Being someone who had been asked that question over and over and over, I felt I felt this huge responsibility, like one that I was really genuinely worried about,"
She added: " If I wasn’t able to say one way or the other, then was I sort of like forsaking a side. Are people going to look at me and say ‘You’re not setting an example.’ But it’s like, no…that’s not mine."
The actress, however, seemed happy to express that she finds young people these days comfortable to come out their sexuality and that they don't feel or have to deal with any constraints like people back in the days would.

"If you were to have this conversation with someone like in high school, they’d probably like roll their eyes and go, ‘Why are you complicating everything so much?’ Just sort of do what you want to do,’" said the 'Speak' actress.
Kristen further continued. "Man, I was gunning for that for a long time. So like god, thank you, kids, lead the way. It’s really nice. The fact that you don’t have to now is like so much more truthful."
The star then shed some lights on the relationship she has endured with females.
She explained: "Whether or not you like girls or boys doesn’t even begin to describe who you are on the inside. For that vocabulary to be the only way to describe… I just feel like we don’t even have the words to describe the complexities of identity right now,"
Kristen broke up with Pattison in 2013 after she committed infidelity with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, a married man.
It was after Pattison, she publicly began dating women like French singer Soko, Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell, Alicia Cargile, and singer St. Vincent.
