Remember when Kristen Stewart hostedSaturday Night Live and referred to herself as "like, so gay" when chatting about Donald Trump? It was a great moment for visibility, and now Stewart is explaining her thought process.

"Honestly, I think it was just funny," the actress told E! during a recent interview. "Not to diminish the point, because I think that saying things so 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."

She continued, "I'm so utterly proud that I've had so many people be like, 'Thank you,' and I'm like, 'No, thank you.' It's kind of mutual, full circle."

Nailed it.
