"I probably would've answered [the romance question] if people hadn't made such a big deal about it," she tells Entertainment Weekly. "But I'm not going to give the fiending an answer."
The actress, whose star has risen dramatically with her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight series, says she doesn't buy the idea that because she's famous, she has to give up her private life.
"I know that people are really funny about 'Well, you chose to be an actor, why don’t you just [expletive] give your whole life away?! Can I have your firstborn child?,' " she says.
Stewart, 19, figures that no matter what she says, tongues will still wag. "I've thought about this a lot," she tells the magazine. "There's no answer that's not going to tip you one way or the other. Think about every hypothetical situation: 'Okay, we are. We aren't. I’m a lesbian.'"
She adds: "I'm just trying to keep something. If people started asking me if I was dating Taylor [Lautner], I'd be like 'F--- off!’ I would answer the exact same way."
