Kristen Stewart Opens Up About Her Girlfriend In Elle UK Interview (x)
“When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialized, so I didn’t like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, ‘That’s mine. You’re making my relationship something that it’s not.’ I didn’t like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, ‘Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I’m not down with it or I’m ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public.

DiMaggio never returned to her grave, but he remembered the wish she’d expressed so many years ago, when they were first dating: that when she died, she wanted flowers delivered to her grave every week, just like William Powell did for Jean Harlow.

Austin Mahone imagine for Elizabeth | Celebrity crushes

Everything just happened so quickly, it all seemed like a dream. Everything I’ve ever wanted was right there in front of me. All my dreams were coming true. I was finally going to go to the Grammys! Not to mention I was going to meet Austin Mahone. He’s been a major crush of mine ever since I saw his cover of Chasing Cars on YouTube and I heard he was going to be in the award show, arriving a bit after my performance.
“I was wildly attracted to him and his work, so I said something cheeky as he was about to walk out. I said, ‘Don’t you want my digits?’ Because I couldn’t possibly say, 'Would you like my phone number?’ It made him laugh. He texted me five minutes later saying, 'Would you like to go for a drink now?”
