Kristen Stewart opened up about Kim Davis, LGBT rights, and her “repulsive” first kiss, among many other topics, in a revealing new interview.

While discussing with the Daily Beast her upcoming movie Equals, a sci-fi love story that’s set in a future where emotions no longer exist, Stewart noted that while allegorical, some of the movie’s themes are very relevant to today’s society.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis was arrested for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. About that situation, Stewart said, “Honestly, it makes me so deeply uncomfortable.” She added, “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.”

Stewart further explained why she feels pity for Davis as opposed to anger, saying, “It’s like, ‘Oh, buddy, that must suck.’ That fear of the unknown cripples people, breeds hate, and it’s just very sad.”

The conversation got a bit lighter when Stewart divulged the details of her “horrible” first kiss. There’s a scene in Equals where Stewart shares a first kiss with co-star Nicholas Hoult, but her real-life first smooch was “so bad,” she revealed. “It was f*cking repulsive. I was 14, and it was gross. It was not good.”

But regardless of the experience being negative, Stewart said that it was still a life changing event. “Something in you opens up and affects your entire body and has this control over you,” Stewart said, noting, “It’s scary because there’s this chemical that’s released that you become addicted to. It literally feels like you don’t have free will anymore. I know that f*cking feeling.”
