It's no secret that President Donald Trump loves to express his divisive opinions in 140 characters or less. But before Trump was sharing political thoughts, he was tweeting about celebrity gossip, including Kristen Stewart and her former relationship with Robert Pattinson. In the fall of 2012, President Trump tweeted a series of disparaging remarks about Stewart and the couple's on-again, off-again relationship. "Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again--just watch. He can do much better," President Trump tweeted.
It's something Stewart hadn't given much thought to until she was asked about it recently at the Sundance Film Festival during an interview with Variety. The 26-year-old actress, who was at the film festival to promote her short film Come Swim, spoke about the tweets Trump, the now President of the United States, directed at her back in 2012. "He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is f**king crazy," Stewart told a reporter, only hours after his inauguration on Friday. "At that point, he was just, like, a reality star. I had no reference. It wasn’t like really a thing. But in retrospect, somebody reminded me of that and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re right!'"
The actress concluded by looking at the camera and offering a sarcastic hello to Trump. "He's probably going to tweet about this," she said with an air of exasperation.
When asked what she would tell young women who might be scared by the current political climate, Stewart offered up words of action. "I would just say be a part of what you believe in, whichever way that is," she said. "I’m not going to tell anyone how to feel, but I’m pretty sure that we all feel the same way."
