Video: Paparazzi barrage Kristen Stewart with questions about sexuality
American actress Kirsten Stewart had a rather unpleasant arrival into LAX at the weekend as she was barraged with questions about her sexuality.
The 24-year-old Twilight star was followed by a string of photographers, with one trying to illicit a response by suggesting she should be “happy” to be gay.
She was asked in an interview to HuffPost Live about her latest film Still Alice: “How often do you see something portrayed in the press, headlines about what you’re wearing and what you look like in your personal life, who you’re dating… How often do you see something and just think ‘that is so far from the truth?’
The actress avoided addressing the claims directly, saying: “There’s a whole other form of entertainment that’s just voraciously consumed in itself.”
Co-star Julianne Moore rescued her from the question, interjecting: “For her, especially, there’s been so much interest in Kristen for the longest time.
“Because of the size of the movies she’s been involved in when she was very young, it’s hard to escape that.
“I think that it’s also a form of entertainment. I think you have to take all that stuff with a grain of salt, and she often does.”
