Everybody loves grilled cheese, right? Sure, it's not the most exciting food on the planet, but it's dependable. That's the metaphor Kristen Stewart chose to roll with while explaining her sexuality to Harper's Bazaar UK this week.
You probably remember the epically cool, nonchalant manner in which the actress responded to speculation that she was into women on SNL earlier way back in February, causing a Twitterstorm with a casual "I'm so gay, dude!" Donald Trump even took a break from not running the country to weigh in with his charming opinion on who K-Stew chooses to sleep with.
Six months on, Kristen used her Harper's Bazaar profile to address the (not-so burning) question of whether she could ever see herself with a man again:
"Yeah, totally. [I'd] definitely [date men again]. Some people know that they like grilled cheese and they’ll eat it every day for the rest of their lives. I want to try everything. If I have grilled cheese once I’m like, ‘That was cool, what’s next?"
Obviously, having been involved in a deliriously high-profile relationship with Robert Pattinson prior to her coming-out, the idea that her sexuality might be some kind of PR game or ploy for attention is one which stubbornly refuses to die — and Kristen took the time to address that, too, in a classy manner:
"I've been deeply in love with everyone I've dated. Did you think I was faking it? I’ve always really embraced a duality. And really, truly, believed in it and never felt confused or struggling. I just didn’t like getting made fun of."
She also uses the interview to discuss her "resentment" of fame ("addressing the world at large is something that just perplexes me") and her dislike for the word "bitch." She even finds a silver lining in Trump's presidency, describing it as a catalyst for people to "come together, define their opinions and force them to be heard."
So, there you go — Kristen Stewart has loved men and women, and probably will do so again, so you can stop grilling her about it. Or about cheese.
Is Kristen Stewart the kind of role model we deserve in 2017, or just another celebrity trying to get on with her life?
