Kristen Stewart who is famously known for playing Bella Swan in the Twilight Franchise speaks about her sexuality and Marvel movies. She once was the highest-paid actress and now in Harper Bazaar UK interview, she was told to hide her sexuality.
I have fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favor, don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.’ I don’t want to work with people like that.
That’s a good amount of talking and to me, she made the right decision by not giving a damn about what other people think. The irony is that Marvel has starred introducing LGBTQ superheroes into their movies. That’s how times change. She even talked about her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson who was also in the Twilight Franchise as Bella Swan’s love interest,
When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by. So much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just like, ‘No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it’s ours.
People become mature and change the way they think, Kristen Stewart feels she has evolved as time passed by and now she thinks she doesn’t need to hide anything,
I was informed by an old school mentality, which is – you want to preserve your career and your success and your productivity, and there are people in the world who don’t like you, and they don’t like that you date girls, and they don’t like that you don’t identify as a quote-unquote lesbian.
Being part of the Marvel family is tough. James Gunn was fried from being a director for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for his mean tweets, which landed him into DC Extended Universe. He is directing Suicide Squad 2. Realizing their mistake, Marvel rehired James and now he is into MCU and DCEU too. Marvel wants everyone to be tight and clean. No wonder about why Kristen Stewart is given that advise.
