Hollywood star Kristen Stewart believes that she is lucky to be living in this particular time in history when she is "fully allowed" to express herself.
The actress attended the Charlie's Angels premiere in Los Angeles, where she spoke out about being unapologetically herself. In an exclusive interview with E! News, Stewart said she endured a long struggle understanding her identity but is happy she was able to "articulate" who she is.
She said, "I think I'm so lucky to live in this particular time of history," Stewart said. "I just think...if you were to look at kids right now, even just five years, seven to 10 years younger than me, they would find my sort of struggle to come to terms with like identity and communication kind of silly."
"And I feed off them, even though I think that I might've had something to do with feeding that, a little bit, because it was like... not the hardest thing to get to know myself it was just ... it takes a few years to actually articulate who you are. And now that I'm living in a time where that's fully allowed, in a way that is expressed and honest ... that wasn't that way five to seven years ago," Stewart told E! News.
When asked what makes her feel strong, the 29-year-old actress answered that she's so lucky to know for a fact that she's telling the right story that defines her. "And that I align with the people that I love and that I want to support," Stewart added.
"To be specific, who knows, but I'm very happy right now in feeling not bored and stimulated and progressive and in the place that I need to be to tell the stories that feel true to me. And that's rad," the Twilight star said.
