‘Twilight’ Alum Kristen Stewart’s First Kiss Was ‘F—king Repulsive’

Kristen Stewart is a former child actor, a woman who has virtually grown up in the entertainment industry. While Stewart is known for her willingness to tackle tough roles (as well as for the high-profile Twilight series) in recent years, Stewart has tended to eschew the spotlight, keeping her personal life more to herself.

Still, she has opened up on several occasions about some of her past romantic encounters, and once, she even detailed her first kiss, which, as she revealed, was a notoriously bad experience.

Stewart was born in 1990 and was raised in the entertainment industry, by parents who worked as stage managers and script supervisors. Although Stewart’s original ambition was to be a Hollywood screenwriter, she began acting when she was only eight years old.

She had appeared in several movies by the time she was 10 years old, including in the Jodie Foster movie Panic Room. Stewart shot to fame in 2008 when she was cast as Bella Swan in the Twilight series of films.

As Stewart’s star in Hollywood rose, so too did the interest in her personal life. In 2009, she was romantically linked to her Twilight co-star, Robert Pattinson. The two embarked on a very private romance and dated for three years until news of Stewart’s affair with a Hollywood director shook them to the core.

Stewart and Pattinson split up in the wake of the scandal, with Stewart opening up about her infidelity to the media, issuing a heartfelt statement directly to her boyfriend. The two reconciled after Stewart’s written apology, only to break up for good in early 2013, with both Pattinson and Stewart moving on to other people.

After Stewart’s split from Pattinson, she started dating a visual effects producer named Alicia Cargile. She also came out as bisexual and has since been an outspoken advocate for LGBTQ rights.

Cargile and Stewart split up in 2016, with Stewart going on to enter a two-year romance with the model Stella Maxwell. Maxwell and Stewart broke up in 2018.

Since early 2019, Stewart has been in a relationship with screenwriter Dylan Meyer. The two got serious pretty quickly, and Stewart has since revealed to Howard Stern that she would be open to marrying Meyer, telling the shock jock “absolutely. I can’t fucking wait.”

While Stewart might be happily dating Meyer these days, there was a time when romance led her astray. As she revealed to The Daily Beast in 2017, her first kiss was definitely one to remember: “It was horrible! It was so bad. It was fucking repulsive. I was 14 and it was gross. It was not good. But the first time something in you opens up and affects your entire body and has this control over you, it’s scary because there’s this chemical that’s released that you become addicted to.”

In that same interview, Stewart opened up about heartbreak and how she has learned to balance her emotions while being in the spotlight. “You just easily close yourself off to certain things because you want to seem like you know it all, or you’re not weak—emotion is often confused as weakness—so when emotions are undeniably physically affecting you, I think it’s a gift,” Stewart stated.
