There’s a new love in Twilight star Kristen Stewart’s life: her personal assistant Alicia Cargile, according to Stewart’s mother, Jules, who says she’s happy about the relationship.
“What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy,” Jules, 55, told Australia’s Sunday Mirror. “She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices. I’ve met Kristen’s new girlfriend, I like her. What’s not to accept? She’s a lovely girl.”
Jules, a script supervisor, in Hollywood also said, “I feel like people need to be free to love whoever they want. I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers.”
The relationship comes two years after Kristen, 25, split from long-term love and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, 29. They broke up after she was spotted kissing married Rupert Sanders, 44, who directed her in Snow White and the Huntsman.
