Kristen Stewart Reveals ‘Gilmore Girls’ Love, Compares Herself to Rory

In an unexpected revelation, actress Kristen Stewart shared her experiences of binge-watching the popular television series “Gilmore Girls,” during an interview with Them, which was published on March 29, 2024. Stewart reportedly sees similarities between some of the on-show mistakes made by the character Rory and those she personally experienced in her past. Stewart stated that she did not feel remorse for her “mistakes” and instead was proud. Furthermore, she identified with Rory’s storylines in the series, particularly in Season 5, where Rory has an affair with her first boyfriend despite his unhappy teenage marriage, something the actress had also experienced in her personal life.

Stewart Watching “Gilmore Girls”

In the interview, Stewart, 33, confessed that she had recently started watching the hit television series “Gilmore Girls” and was currently viewing Season 5. She specifically connected with Rory’s character and the mistakes she made, stating, “Rory is just making so many mistakes that I made and I’m like, ‘Wait, this is stupid, I don’t want to see her do this.” Despite this, Stewart expressed a sense of pride about the situation, suggesting it might be a reflection of her personal growth.

“Gilmore Girls” Synopsis

“Gilmore Girls” aired between 2000 and 2007, first on The WB before shifting to The CW. The Amy Sherman-Palladino creation follows the lives of mother-daughter duo Lorelai Gilmore, played by Lauren Graham, and Rory Gilmore, played by Alexis Bledel. The storyline involves Rory’s transfer to the esteemed Chilton Preparatory Academy from the local high school and her trying to navigate the dilemmas and drama of her growing social life.

Rory’s Character Arc and Stewart’s Personal Life

In “Gilmore Girls,” Rory becomes entangled in a messy relationship with her first boyfriend, Dean, who is unhappily married to Lindsay. Stewart’s venture into Rory’s life might have resonated with her due to an infamous affair scandal in her past. In July 2012, reports emerged that Stewart was romantically involved with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders. At the time, Stewart was dating her “Twilight” co-star, Robert Pattinson, and Sanders was married to Liberty Ross. Shortly after, both issued separate statements of apology.

Post Scandal Life

Stewart and Pattinson parted ways about a year following the scandalous revelation. Currently, Stewart is engaged to Dylan Meyer, while Pattinson has recently welcomed his first child with Suki Waterhouse. Sanders, on the other hand, divorced his then-wife Ross in 2014.
