In a new Nylon profile, actress and renowned giver-of-fucks Kristen Stewart addressed questions about her sexuality, which became a source of debate after her mother confirmed her relationship with visual effects producer Alicia Cargile in an interview with the Sunday Mirror.

While she certainly didn’t deny the relationship — as she put it, “Google me, I’m not hiding” — Stewart went on to say that she doesn’t feel the need to define herself, especially not in such a public forum.

“If you feel like you really want to define yourself, and you have the ability to articulate those parameters and that in itself defines you, then do it,” she said. “But I am an actress, man. I live in the fucking ambiguity of this life and I love it. I don’t feel like it would be true for me to be like, ‘I’m coming out!’ No, I do a job. Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t. I’m just a kid making movies.”

Echoing the remarks of Miley Cyrus and other celebrities who are increasingly embracing notions of sexual fluidity, Stewart added she doesn’t think declaring one's sexual identity is such a necessary idea anymore. “I think in three or four years, there are going to be a whole lot more people who don’t think it’s necessary to figure out if you’re gay or straight," she said. "It’s like, just do your thing.”
