Kristen Stewart comes out

TEEN WOLF | Purse-lipped Bella (Kristen Stewart) strings along ab-fab Jacob (Taylor Lautner) in ‘Eclipse.’

Sorry, Jacob, Bella has eyes for a less hairy sort.

Kristen Stewart, who as the sulky Bella in the Twilight Saga was encouraged to choose either Team Edward or Team Jacob, has let it officially be known: She’s Team Esme. Well, not necessarily Esme, but the boys no longer stand a chance. The actress — who is currently giving her best performance to date in the Woody Allen film Cafe Society — told Elle that she is currently in a same-sex relationship with movie producer Alicia Cargile. “I’m just really in love with my girlfriend,” she told the magazine.

Stewart has been something of a lightning rod of criticism. She started her career as a child (co-starring alongside Jodie Foster in Panic Room) and shot to fame in Twilight, but has been seen as something of a sourpuss, both in her performances and in dealing with the press — she’s notably private. Until now.

She’ll next be seen in Ang Lee’s highly-anticipated Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, which is set in Dallas.
