Cannes Film Festival: Kristen Stewart ‘gayzed’ at Cate Blanchett and the internet exploded

Kristen Stewart has sent the internet into a frenzy of pure happiness with her loving stares at Cate Blanchett.

The actresses are currently both sitting on the Cannes Film Festival jury, along with other stars like Léa Seydoux and director Ava DuVernay.

And since the festival began this week, Kristen has repeatedly gazed – or “gayzed,” according to fans – at Cate, sending them into a tailspin of ecstasy.

The former Twilight star came out in 2015, when she confirmed she was “not hiding” her relationship with then-girlfriend Alicia Cargile.

Kristen, who is currently dating Stella Maxwell, said on Saturday Night Live last year that she was “like, so gay”.

The 28-year-old has not defined her sexuality, but clarified last year that she would “definitely” still date men.

It does not look like men are on her mind this week, however. In fact, it looks like Kristen has eyes for only one double-Oscar-winning actress.

People have noticed, and they are delighted.

One wrote: “Cate Blanchett is about to conveniently leave her gloves at Kristen’s place.”


Another imagined a wonderful situation in which Cate, who starred in lesbian drama Carol, entered into this conversation with Kristen.

“Kristen: I know what you are. Cate: Say it. Out loud. Say it. Kristen: Bisexual.”


Another wrote simply: “The way Kristen Stewart is looking at Cate Blanchett… I think we all can relate.”


Hard to disagree with that.

The same user added later: “Kristen Stewart staring at Cate Blanchett as if she can’t decide between being Cate Blanchett or being WITH Cate Blanchett is the biggest 20gayteen mood.”


20GayTeen is, of course, the best and perhaps only acceptable alternative name for 2018, created by pop star, actress and ‘Lesbian Jesus’ Hayley Kiyoko.

Another fan wrote: “Where’s my book about Kristen Stewart and Cate Blanchett as lesbian robin hood style con artists who infiltrate rich ppl parties, steal all their stuff, and gift it to the poor.”


We would watch that so hard.

They added: “Kristen Stewart so recklessly stresses the gays out with yet another Peak Gay outfit every other month. It’s irresponsible and I’m in shock.”

One said that “Kristen Stewart looks at Cate Blanchet the way that all lesbians look at Kristen Stewart looking at Cate Blanchett.”


And another wrote: “Kristen Stewart staring at Cate Blanchett the gayness JUMPED out.”


The same person tweeted: “What gay goddess did y’all pray to make these pictures of Cate Blanchett and Kristen Stewart happen.”


A fair question.

One fan wrote: “Kristen Stewart and Cate Blanchett have raised BILLIONS for the LGBTs.”


And another said: “Kristen looking at Cate. POETRY.”


Yet another wrote: “Find someone who looks at you the way Kristen Stewart looks at Cate Blanchett.”


Now that’s a good life goal.
