Kristen Stewart kissed Soko’s hand in front of the paps: sweet or cheeseball?


Here are some photos of Kristen Stewart looking loved up with her girlfriend Soko in LA last Friday. K-Stew and Soko arrived back in LA about a week and a half ago, after their big Paris jaunt that had them getting pap’d nearly every day. Kristen knows how to stay somewhat hidden in LA though, so I was slightly surprised to see photos of her with Soko. I think it’s a combination of things, really – it’s not so much a pap stroll as Kristen not really caring that the paparazzi are documenting her latest relationship. Plus, I think Kristen genuinely has The Feelings. Like, she was affectionate with Alicia Cargile, but this Soko thing seems like it got really intense really quickly. As for their style… Soko’s fashion hurts my eyes, but I sort of like that she’s whimsical and weird.

Meanwhile, did you know that K-Stew can cook? Just what every man and woman wants: a lip-biter in the bedroom and a cook in the kitchen! Kristen’s friend and Equals costar Nicholas Hoult told People Mag that Kristen “is a brilliant cook” when asked what people would be surprised to learn about K-Stew. When asked if she has any specialties, Hoult said: “I don’t know, but I know she can really cook.” See, why doesn’t she talk about that in her interviews? I would love to know what she cooks and if she’s a baker and whether she cooks for friends. Hoult also totally shut down the rumors that he and Kristen ever hooked up. While I once believed that it was a possibility, I now think that Hoult and Kristen were always just friends.

Kristen was also seen kissing Soko’s hand in the middle of their pap stroll (photos below). I’m telling you, she has all the feelings with this one. It’s really interesting to see her like this.

    Why are her pants unbuttoned? Is this something new that cool kids do nowadays?

    • Insomniac says:

      Clearly, she is carrying her third secret child with her secret husband Rob. /s

      • Lara says:

        Yes, Jelly Bean and Lollipop (or whatever its name is) may soon have a new sibling (Cupcake? Pop Tart? Tootsie Roll?) . Rob and Kristen choose such interesting names for their invisible children. Folks over at HKN Haven are celebrating the news of this latest child with much glee and rejoicing.

    • Wiffie says:

      I think she’s trying to wear old 501s down on her hips, and they are shaped and made to go up around the waist. Only way you can wear those down low is unbuttoning. That’s that first thing that came to mind.

    • Original T.C. says:

      She’s going for the sexy unbuttoned look but it comes out looking sloppy.

  2. Santia says:

    I think that’s really sweet. I still do that to my 12 year old. It’s one of the sweetest gestures. Good for her that she’s allowing herself to show affection.

    • Sam says:

      You comparing kissing your 12 year olds hand to someone kissing their girl friends hand in public is not only weird but disturbing.

    • Sullivan says:

      I agree that hand-kissing is a sweet gesture whether it’s between lovers or family or friends.

    • Original T.C. says:

      Maybe Sam was a little blunt but I get her point. If that had been a picture of Ryan Reynolds kissing the hands of his wife Blake Lively which coveys sweet love (but it’s still sexual between partners) and someone was to follow saying that they too love to kiss their daughter’s hands similarly, most hetero people would pause.

      I think it’s because this is a picture of two young women in a same-sex relationship that some heterosexuals may unconsciously not see as also sexual but only “two friends being sweet”. Which some of Kstew’s fans who refuse to see that she is in a romantic relationship would say. But yes I too thought it unusual to compare relationship kissing to parentental but I know that was not your intention!

      • Sam says:

        Original T.C. Thank you. You understand my point. Had I compared Ryan Reynolds kissing Blake Lively’s hand to me kissing my daughter’s hand, I hope you guys would find it odd. Parental love is not the same.

    • Yes, its a very protective and caring gesture.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      It is a sweet gesture- conveys how valued and precious the receiver of the hand kiss is, IMO.

  3. Sam says:

    Any other relationship and everyone would be talking about how they’re showing it off. Anyways I was more distracted by what Soko was wearing and the fact that Kstew’s jeans are unbuttoned. Who let Soko out the house and who told Kstew that it’s okay to have the top button of your jeans unbuttoned?
    PS I get unbuttoning your jeans because you just ate or something but don’t you dare tell me it’s normal to show that it’s unbuttoned.

    • Shambles says:

      Soko’s outfit is so bad that it’s actually frustrating. You can see the difference between someone who just threw some clothes on because they genuinely don’t care, and someone who picked out the worst outfit humanly possible so that they could give the appearance that they don’t care. Soko looks like the latter, and I’m irritated.

      Also, I thought she was Paul Dano in the header photo.

    • holly says:

      Quick! Call the Fashion Police! Woman walking in street with clothing button not fastened!

  4. QQ says:

    I dont quite get it, I mean like they are doing it (the Pap Strolls) but on the same token KStew is sorta telegraphing discomfort? ( Or is it just me?) but she is not dumpster diving either?

    • Div says:

      I think Kaiser is right in that it is less a pap stroll and more them just not caring anymore about the paparazzi being there. She often looks uncomfortable, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the result of the paparazzi yelling some nasty stuff at them. When Cara Delevigne first started dating Annie, there were quite a few photos because gay still equals scandalous to some homophobic tabs/paparazzi….and on video you could often hear the paparazzi making some low key homophobic remarks to them to get a reaction.

    • mia girl says:

      Sheesh QQ – don’t you get it?!? She looks uncomfortable because this isn’t real.

      Stewart is simply participating in an elaborate ruse to protect her babies from gossip hungry heathens who would forever ruin their storybook childhood being raised by two hetero, white parents in the most epic, missionary-position luv story of all time!

      99.999999999999% of the world’s population is being fooled.
      But some of us know the truth.

      • Lara says:

        You’re correct! This is all a stunt. Soko is Rob’s friend and she’s helping him with this ruse so no one will know the real truth: Rob and Kristen are married and have two little girls (who evidently have never seen the light of day).

        As for Twigs – well, she’s just a business investment and Rob is her manager. He actually loathes her and only hangs out with her to keep her out of trouble.

        It’s an intriguing story, isn’t it? Bizarre. Delusional. But intriguing.

      • QQ says:

        Mia Please don’t call them here with the whiff of a fake conspiracy theory!

        that sounds plausible Div, I’m just sorta not understanding the circumstances and all so I wanted to see if she reads uncomfortable to anyone else

      • Kezia says:

        Hahaha that was perfect! You made me finally go check out Hkn haven after that, good lord it is insane!

  5. Another Anne says:

    Actually, Kristen talked a lot about cooking a few years ago, around the end of Twilight. It sounded like a talking point her PR people came up with to soften up her persona. I remember they even posted a recipe of hers in a magazine.

    The try is so strong with Soko. She takes the messy hipster look to a whole new level.

  6. Rae says:

    Whilst I will never be her biggest fan, I wish them well. This is the first time I’ve seen her do anything really affectionate in front of paps, other than when she got caught cheating of course.

    Hopefully this will put a nail in the Robsten fan coffin, once and for all.

  7. Elisa the I. says:

    no shade, I really like them together!

  8. Lucy says:

    The dehydration is strong with this one (not KS).

  9. Miss M says:

    I don’t follow Kstew (read some of the posts here from time to time). So, i get the impression that she is sticking to her ex, Alicia, because she was still very private with Alicia and now she is on pap strolls and all PDA with her new girlfriend?! Is KStew trying to make Alicia jealous? Maybe I am reading too much into these pap strolls… lol

    • Naya says:

      I think she is just growing more comfortable with her sexuality and probably confronting her social anxiety as well. I think Sokos extroverted personality probably helps too.

    • Mimi says:

      I doubt it, since it’s obvious she is the one who dumped Alicia!
      (Obvious because Alicia posted some emo stuff on her tumblr around their break up/when Soko/KStew went public)

    • monty says:

      K never even held Robs hand, so why now all the photo ops of hand holding and kisses?

  10. Div says:

    They look happy together tho Soko’s hipster style is ugh. I hope they walk the red carpet at Cannes together and possibly multiple times as Soko has a film that will probably be there too. I am curious to see if Soko wears something kooky.

  11. Insomniac says:

    I really like these two together and I have no idea why, because I never heard of Soko until last month and I never liked Kristen. And I like Soko’s pants.


    I don’t like her or her “acting” much, but their pictures make my cold, black heart melt a lil’. They seem so into each other. I even enjoy having eyeballs assaulted by Soko’s outfits.

  13. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    Well now that she no longer has the Twilight franchise and is not having anything else related to movies that can keep her in news, she’s doing this pap stroll to stay in news so that she doesn’t disappear.
    Remember the time she said she wouldn’t cheapen her relationship by talking about them, she wasn’t so affectionate like this towards Rob when Twilight was there. Now all of a sudden we are seeing so much of PDAs.
    It’s a very good strategy. Directors/producers won’t care if she’s with a girl. It would have mattered if she was with a guy.

    • Div says:

      Uh, what? Publicly dating someone of the same sex isn’t a “PR” move since the public is still rather homophobic at large—why do you think we have so few out stars? She also has two films that are going to be at Cannes and an upcoming role in an Ang Lee film—she’s not as big as she used to be but she’s certainly not on the verge of disappearing.

  14. knower says:

    Honestly at this rate with all these pictures, my money is on Soko calling up the paps herself before they go out.

    • Wood Dragon says:

      Never been a fan of PDA by people in general and with celebrities I get very suspicious that it is all part of some sort of advertisement, whether a personal statement broadcast VERY LOUD or just for the attention.
      What can I say? I’m a big fan of discretion whether straight or gay. I’m an introvert anyway and would avoid this sort of attention in the first place.

  15. Mabel says:

    I remember when she was dating Pattinson during the Twilight movies, he said in a few interviews that Kristen was a good cook and baker. He mentioned she made the most delicious pies he’s ever tasted. He said she made a bunch of pies for the Twilight crew. I think Taylor Lautner agreed with him about the pies being so tasty. He also mentioned that she makes a great spaghetti with lots of meat in it. These interviews were done during the Twilight years. I don’t know if she’s still into baking and cooking.

  16. Ariadne says:

    Kristen looks very comfortable and happy around Soko. She never showed so much PDA. Neither with Robert nor with Alicia. I’m hoping to see Soko with Kristen at Cannes and some red carpet glamor. Hopefully at the beginning of May they will make their first public appearance at Met Gala and confirm everything the way Robert and Fka did last year. Fingers crossed. And may God bless both the couples for a long, successful and happy relationship.

  17. Tig says:

    Yeah, the cooking stories are old news. Curious as to why these pics would be the death of Robsten when pics of Rob with Twigs never were. Guess both Twigs and Soko are on the payroll to provide “cover”.

  18. JRF says:

    I love how normal Kristen is with her homosexual relationships- it’s how it should be. No games, no big statements, just two people wanting to be together regardless of their gender.

    It makes it look very down to earth and as such very likable. Go Girls!

  19. dana says:

    on FB story for this pap walk, theres a link @Kaiser for soko’s instagram and snapchat page and this def looks like a lot of pap or attention seeking. She posts 5 times a day there every move. Yikes, Talk about extremes. This feels like both are looking to sell us something. Validity and press. I don’t mind them – but they look busted all the time.

  20. jinx says:

    Whooooaa! These two def personify Finn and Jake hahaaaa!

  21. Jess says:

    I finally saw that cloud of sila movie the other day. Kstew was good in it. She hasn’t got great range as an actor but she can be good in the right part.
    Anyway I wish her well she seems to be very happy with soko. Good for her!

  22. Spike says:

    I plead guilty on attire similar to Soko but I’m not doing it in a hipster or twee manner. I’ve rocked it since the 70s. Shocking larger and small plaid patterns in complimary colors (my younger sister was mortified). Cute flannel pajama bottoms as pants. The style? that is now butch – mens shirts, construction boots, Hawaiin (sp) and 50s campy shirts. I hate when a certain style is used to lable sexual orientation or gender (too mannish). Wasn’t hanging with the cool kids. Don’t follow fashion trends – just being me. This is what happens when you are guilty of a 12 year Catholic school education!!!

    Love the kiss on the hand is very sweet and casual. KStew has looked so much happier and relaxed in the past few years.

  23. Kate says:

    I feel like I saw plenty of pictures of KStew being affectionate with her ex-gf. She was walking around LA holding her hand long before anyone was willing to print anything suggesting they were something more than friends. There was also some pics of them hugging and kissing and cuddling over the years.

    Given Soko is a singer who gets quite a bit of attention in France, she’s probably a lot more comfortable with the photographers. And now that KStew is considered properly out, the media are talking about her love life much more than they did when she was with her ex, and thus more pictures will be taken to illustrate those stories.
