Kristen Stewart, normally reluctant about dishing out bites of her personal life, went family serving style for her Elle UK cover interview.

The media-wary star opened up about her anxiety issues, and relationship with girlfriend/former assistant, Alicia Cargile, which, until now, was never *officially* confirmed by the source herself.

In terms of her anxious bouts--no doubt exacerbated by her almost cosmic rise to fame during the Twilight era--Stewart stated:

I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacks…I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn't anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I'd be like, 'Maybe I'm going to get sick'... It's kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that's not to say I don't get worried.

Queen of overcoming anxiety!

On her love:

'I think also right now I'm just really in love with my girlfriend. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and this time I was like, 'Finally, I can feel again.'

Stewart also articulated how dating women has emboldened her to live out loud:

When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, 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. It opened my life up and I'm so much happier.

Go off, KStew. This almost makes me forget you're starring in a Woody Allen movie.

But not really.
