Kristen Stewart, who is known to speak her mind, opened up about drugs and LGBT rights in her recent interview. The 25-year-old thinks that taking anti-depressants is a “bizarre” idea and people should refrain from medication for every little ailment.

"Self-exploration goes out the door with medication," Stewart told The Daily Beast in an interview. The actress believes that people are ignoring the root cause of problems today and instead focusing on suppressing them.

"You go, 'Oh god, I have a little stomachache,' and they say, 'Here, we can help you with that.' Well, why do you have that stomachache? Maybe it's because your head's in your stomach, so maybe there's something you're ignoring that you can work out,” she said.

The actress also notes that she knows a lot of people who take medicines but they do not have any mental health problems. “Not all emotional issues are 'mental health issues.' They do not all hold hands," the actress said.

The author of the article then tells the former “Twilight” star that he is aware of many people who have felt a lot better after the medical intervention. But Stewart still believes that medicines “numb” the experience of pain and emotions. “Why numb yourself? I'm not on anti-depressants. I think it's bizarre," she adds.

After giving her take on anti-depressants, the “Equals” actress also shared her views on LGBT rights and said it's "abso-f--king-lutely...crazy" that some ignorant people (read Kim Davis) want to stop same-sex people to get married.

"I feel really bad for her[Davis]. Anyone who's so closed off to things that are so apparent? Imagine what else she's missing out on in life,” Stewart said about Davis.

It may also be noted that the actress is speculated to be in a lesbian relationship with her assistant Alicia Cargile. Stewart, however, is yet to comment on it.
