Kristen Stewart thought it was "really cool" to come out in such a "simple and straightforward" way.

The 'Personal Shopper' star - who has been romantically linked with a string of women, including singers Soko and St. Vincent, model Stella Maxwell and production assistant Alicia Cargile since ending her five-year relationship with Robert Pattinson - admitted during a joke about President Donald Trump on 'Saturday Night Live' last month that she is "so gay" and she was pleased to be "completely unashamed" about her sexuality.

She said: "I guess because it was simple and straightforward. Just - 'I'm so gay, dude.'.

"In that moment, to make it normal and cool and completely unashamed? It felt really cool."

But Kristen can't understand why her admission garnered so much attention.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "I've been talking about it for a really long time! I've lived pretty openly."

The 26-year-old actress had a great time guest hosting 'SNL' and would love to be invited back.

She said: "Oh, it was so fun. If they would have me, I'd go back every year."

However, she was left incredibly "embarrassed" during rehearsals for the show because she felt so nervous alongside the "epic" comedy cast.

She admitted: "I couldn't get out one line. I was embarrassed. I was so nervous. Just being on stage with the whole crew - and that cast is epic - and everyone was killing it immediately. I felt like they were all thinking, 'This poor girl is going to crash and burn.' "

Kristen previously admitted she came out on the show because it "worked for the joke" she was telling in her monologue.

She said: "Honestly, I thought it was just funny. Not to diminish the point because I think that saying things sort of bluntly is absolutely important, but at the same time, the only reason I haven't ever done that is because there is an ambiguity to that and I wanted things to be really real for me. But honestly, it just worked for the joke."
