Kristen Stewart on Homophobic Folk Hero Kim Davis: 'I Feel Really Bad for Her'

CelebritiesDirt Bag

In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Kristen Stewart—out promoting her movie Equals—was asked what she thought about the deranged circus caused by Kim Davis, the clerk from Rowan County, Kentucky who—in spite of the law and her job description—is refusing to marry gay couples.

Via the Daily Beast:

I wanted to go back to the issue of the denial of love. Have you been following the news of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who denied a same-sex couple their marriage license, was sent to jail, and has subsequently been martyred by many on the right-wing?
Yeah. Oh my god. Did you see her come out of jail? Honestly, it makes me so deeply uncomfortable. I feel really bad for her. Anyone who’s so closed off to things that are so apparent? Imagine what else she’s missing out on in life. I’m not making any grand statements about her personally, but if something so glaringly obvious, such as this subject…
…to have that much hate in your heart must be awful.
That’s why I feel bad for her. It’s like, “Oh, buddy, that must suck.” That fear of the unknown cripples people, breeds hate, and it’s just very sad.

Not sure how Kim Davis ties into Kristen Stewart and her new movie, but, regardless, “Oh, buddy, that must suck” is a very good and generous way to dismiss an idiot.

Emily Blunt joked that she wanted to hand in her newly acquired American citizenship after watching the first round of GOP presidential debates. As she told The Hollywood Reporter, “I became an American citizen recently, and that night, we watched the Republican debate and I thought, ‘This was a terrible mistake. What have I done?’”

Things are hardly better in England, Em.
