Kristen Stewart: 'I don't try to keep my personal life private anymore'

The Twilight star is known for being fiercely private about her personal life, going out of her way to keep her relationships out of the public eye as much as possible.

However, as she has gotten older, the 26-year-old has become more relaxed about what does and doesn't make it into the headlines, because people's comments about her lifestyle don't hold much weight with her.

"I wouldn't talk about who I (have sex with) and how I (have sex with them) unless I was friends with you," she tells the Los Angeles Times. "That's weird, but then, at the same time, I've discovered a way to live my life and not feel like I'm hiding at all. And I think that's pretty apparent for anyone who cares - not that everyone does. But I think that if you had been tracking it in any way, it's more apparent that I'm more relaxed than I used to be."

"Somehow, as I got older, I reoriented my mind," she continues. "I've gotten better at assessing people's motivations. It's not something I have to overtly think about - what I share and what I don't share. It's a natural thing. Whereas, when I was younger, I was like, 'You're gonna screw me over.' Now I'm like, 'Whatever. You can't'."

Kristen famously dated British actor Robert Pattinson after meeting on the set of the popular vampire film franchise in 2008. They split in 2013, months after the actress' infamous fling with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in the summer of 2012.
