Kristen Stewart is known for two things: Being one of the best actresses on the planet and keeping her private life very private. So it’s kinda shocking that, just days before her new movie Spencer bows in theaters on Fri., Nov. 5, a bombshell about her personal life has dropped: The 31-year-old Stewart is engaged!
E! News reported on Tues., Nov. 2 that K-Stew is getting ready to walk down the aisle with longtime love of two years Dylan Meyer after the actress shared the news earlier that day with Howard Stern.
“We’re marrying! We’re totally gonna do it,” Stewart gushed to the shock jock.
Why was the timing finally right? It could be that as Stewart has matured from gifted child actor (who first came to fame as Jodie Foster‘s daughter in Panic Room) to worldwide teen icon (from her starring role in the Twilight saga) to hugely respected movie star (see: her performances in Personal Shopper, Clouds of Sils Maria and more), she’s also gained some perspective on how to handle herself in a relationship without feeling like her fame is encroaching on her personal commitments.
As she explained to InStyle in October 2020, “The first time I ever dated a girl, I was immediately being asked if I was a lesbian. And it’s like, ‘God, I’m 21 years old.’ I felt like maybe there were things that have hurt people I’ve been with. Not because I felt ashamed of being openly gay but because I didn’t like giving myself to the public, in a way. It felt like such thievery. This was a period of time when I was sort of cagey. Even in my previous relationships, which were straight, we did everything we could to not be photographed doing things—things that would become not ours.”
She added, “I think the added pressure of representing a group of people, of representing queerness, wasn’t something I understood then.”
It was while dating her first girlfriend that Stewart decided to stop hiding, in part because she didn’t want anyone to think she was ashamed of dating a member of the same sex. However, she’s still not too keen on labels.
“I had no reticence about displaying who I was. I was going out every day knowing I’d be photographed while I was being affectionate with my girlfriend, but I didn’t want to talk about it,” she said. “I did feel an enormous pressure, but it wasn’t put on me by the [LGBTQIA+] community. People were seeing those pictures and reading these articles and going, ‘Oh, well, I need to be shown.’ I was a kid, and I felt personally affronted. Now I relish it. I love the idea that anything I do with ease rubs off on somebody who is struggling. That s**t’s dope! When I see a little kid clearly feeling themselves in a way that they wouldn’t have when I grew up, it makes me skip.”

Is Kristen Stewart in a relationship?
Is she ever! Stewart has been in a relationship with Meyer for two-plus years now. The pair were first linked in August 2019 shortly after Stewart split from model Stella Maxwell.
The couple went Instagram official on Meyer’s account in October, when Meyer captioned a photo of her and Stewart smooching, “Find me under the covers hiding from the happiness police.”
Who is Kristen Stewart’s girlfriend?
In November 2019, the actress told Howard Stern that she first told Meyer she loved her early in their relationship. “I’m really impulsive,” she said, adding, “The first time I told her I loved her, it was really late, we were in some sh*tty bar, and her friends were there or whatever, and they walked out, and I was just like, ‘Oh, man, I’m so f**king in love with you.’ Done.”
Are Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer engaged?
Another reason it’s not surprising that K-Stew finally put a ring on it? She said two years ago that getting engaged to Meyer was just a matter of time.
In her November 2019 interview with Stern, Stewart revealed that she “can’t f***ing wait” to propose. At the time, she and Meyer had only been together for several months, leading Stewart to explain, “Yeah, I want to be, like, somewhat reasonable about it, but I think good things happen fast.” As for her specific proposal plans, Stewart wanted to keep them a secret, noting, “I can’t say right now, because she’ll find out,” adding, “I have a couple plans, that are, like, just the coolest things to do. It’s pretty undeniable… I have this really cool thing that I want to do that I want to tell you, but I just can’t!”
As it turns out, Stewart was the one who was proposed to by Meyer. As K-Stew told Stern, “I kind of asked her… I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out [what] I wanted and she nailed it. It was really cute, she did very well.”

Is Kristen Stewart married?
Stewart isn’t married, but apparently, she’s counting down the days until she is.
“I’m not a super-duper traditionalist, but every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it,” she told Stern in November 2019, noting she’s only casually dated one or two people and that the rest of her relationships were quite serious to her. She said she’d “absolutely” get married someday, explaining, “It’s in no way tied to any weird sort of convention—it’s just, like, when you know, you know.” She concurred with Stern that marriage was a way to show that you’re putting your partner above all others.
“There is nothing like feeling sure about anything, because we don’t know anything,” she said. “And that is the only thing you can feel like you know, is that you’re in love with someone… I don’t feel like I’m kowtowing to some sort of patriarchal standard, but honoring that [relationship] and having other people recognize it—f**k the government—but just people in your friends and family, that means a lot to me.”
In July 2021, Stewart and Meyer were spotted out and about wearing rings on their all-important fingers, but no further confirmations or denials emerged as to their actual marital status at that time.

Did Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson ever date?
Yes, and quite famously at that! Stewart dated Robert Pattinson from around 2009 until 2012, when Stewart was photographed kissing her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “K-Patz” briefly reconciled but split for good in 2013. Stewart told Stern in November 2019 that her Twilight costar was also her first major, adult love and relationship.
She previously explained that the publicity and fan drama surrounding “Robsten” was one main reason she never spoke about their romance publicly, noting that she didn’t want to seem like she was capitalizing on their private life for attention.
Stewart also explained to Harper’s Bazaar UK, “When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by. So much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just like, ‘No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it’s ours.’”
Are Kristen and Robert still friends?
While it’s unlikely they hang out much anymore (Stewart is happily dating Meyer, while Pattinson has been in a relationship with model Suki Waterhouse since 2018), Stewart only had nice things to say about Pattinson. When Stern said in their November 2019 chat that the Good Time actor was a “very charming guy,” Stewart gushed in response, “He’s the best!”
That said, those clamoring for her to star alongside the new onscreen Batman shouldn’t hold their breath. After a slew of online fan-casting Stewart as the Joker, she told Variety, “I love the energy behind that, but dude, it’s really been done so well.” She added, “I love that gusto, let’s figure something else out, you know what I mean? I’m totally down to play like, a freaky, scary person… Let’s try something new.”

Who has Kristen Stewart dated in the past?
Stewart dated Anton Yelchin in 2004 after meeting on the set of Fierce People when they were teens. She said of the late star in the documentary Love, Antosha, “He kind of broke my heart. I was so baffled by how good he was, and then I couldn’t be around him. It’s weird to talk about with anyone…. He intimidated me because he was so voracious, and I wanted to absorb all his interests. I wanted to be better, smoother, cooler but couldn’t even hang with him.” She said he called her years later to discuss their split and apologized for hurting her feelings, to which she told him everything was fine.
Her next boyfriend was Michael Angarano, who she met on the set of Speak. The couple dated from 2005 to 2009, when she began dating Pattinson after meeting on the set of Twilight. She was then linked with Sanders in 2012, then briefly reunited with Pattinson before breaking up for good in 2013.

Maxwell and Stewart were off and on for three years, and during one of their off periods, was spotted kissing fashion blogger Sara Dinkin. In summer 2019, Stewart began dating Meyer.
