Kristen Stewart Was Told To Stop 'Holding Her GFs Hand In Public' To Land Big Movie Roles

“I don’t want to work with people like that."

According to critics of Kristen Stewart, her ability to land big acting roles is directly related to her sexuality which is a sad state of affairs in 2019. 

In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, the Twilight actress revealed that before she became a household name, she had “fully been told, ‘If you just like do yourself a favour, and don’t go out holding your girlfriend’s hand in public, you might get a Marvel movie.”

“I don’t want to work with people like that,” she added.

Stewart said she’d been informed by an “old-school mentality, which is – you want to preserve your career and your success and productivity, and there are people in the world who don’t like you, and they don’t like that you date girls, and they don’t like that you don’t identify as a quote unquote ‘lesbian,’ but you also don’t identify as a quote unquote ‘heterosexual.’ And people like to know stuff, so what the f*ck are you?”

It must’ve been particularly hard for Stewart to shake off the industry’s pigeonholed perception of her considering how highly publicised her relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson was between 2009 and 2012.

During her interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Stewart addressed her relationship with Pattinson and the importance of keeping it private. “When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by,” she said. “So much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just like, ‘No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it’s ours.”

In 2017, Stewart announced she was “so gay” during an appearance on Saturday Night Live and later clarified she was bisexual. “You’re not confused if you’re bisexual. It’s not confusing at all. For me, it’s quite the opposite,” she told The Guardian.

Since then, Kristen Stewart has had a string of relationships with St. Vincent musician Annie Clark, Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell, and stylist Sara Dinkin. Over the past few years she has also landed roles in major films including On The Road, Still Alice, Café Society, Clouds of Sils Maria, Certain Women, and this year’s Charlie’s Angels reboot, just to name a few.

It’s quite clear Kristen Stewart’s dating history, or sexual preference, has absolutely nothing to do with her successful acting career, and the people who think otherwise need a harsh reality check.

Tracy Morgan Paying A Bartender To Keep An Eye On His $2M Bugatti Is The Definition Of BDE

He's not taking any chances.

This is something comedian Tracy Morgan can personally attest to, having legitimately paid a bartender to watch his $2M Bugatti while he ate at Carmine’s restaurant in New York this week.

A source told Page Six that Morgan “paid one of the restaurant’s bartenders who just came off his shift to watch his Bugatti while he and a friend dined.”

While Morgan tucked into “Carmine’s signature chicken, veal parmigiana and fried calamari,” the bartender kept his eye on the luxury vehicle parked out front.

It’s not surprising Morgan is going to great lengths to protect his property. In June, just hours after he purchased the sportscar, another driver travelling into a Honda CR-V smashed into it.

“He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it,” a source said at the time. “He just bought it, dude, and it’s pretty scraped up.”

In fact, Tracy Morgan hasn’t had much luck with cars at all. In 2014, the comedian was involved in a six-vehicle crash in New Jersey while travelling in a Mercedes Sprinter minibus. The vehicle was heading north when it was struck from behind by a Walmart trailer, causing a chain reaction of subsequent collisions. 

Fans were devastated to hear that the crash had killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair, and left Morgan with severe injuries including a broken leg, nose, and several broken ribs. 

Morgan sued Walmart for negligence, resulting in the driver accepting a plea deal with no jail time. In a 2015 interview Morgan revealed he had no memory of the crash and said “I have my good days and my bad days, where I forget things.” The same year, the comedian made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards where he was greeted with a standing ovation.

After all of that, Tracy Morgan deserves to sit back, relax and let someone else watch his car for him.
