E! News correspondent Marc Malkin got an opportunity to speak to Stewart while the starlet was promoting her latest project, a film entitled,Personal Shopper. When Malkin brought up the revelation, aSaturday Night Live moment that has since gone viral, Stewart was not reticent to explain the thought process that birthed her coming out moment.
"Honestly, I think it was just funny," shared Stewart, who is now 26 years of age.. "Not to diminish the point because I think that saying things so bluntly is absolutely important, but at the same time, the only reason I haven't ever done that is because there is an ambiguity to that and I wanted things to be really real for me. But honestly, it just worked for the joke."
Stewart continued to prove bold in discussing her sexuality. She spoke to malkin about stripping naked for the nude scenes in the critically acclaimed low budget film, saying that those were some of the most empowering moments on set.
"I didn't feel encumbered at all. Quite the opposite actually."revealed Stewart."Those [scenes] for me were really empowering, not because I was taking my clothes off, but just because I was getting to the most primal part of that [character], finally, someone who's really closed off. So then I felt like they were the most revealing, but also the most empowering scenes."
