Stewart looked fresh and animated on the show. Her hair seemed shorter than ever.
She joked about Justin Bieber, meeting Robert Redford and winning the Cesar, the French equivalent of an Oscar for her role in the movie “Clouds of Sils Maria.”
But her most telling comments came when she and O’Brien got into a discussion about Conan’s long working relationship with his personal assistant, Sona Movsesian.
Stewart has fueled rumors about a possible lesbian relationship with Cargile because they have become close and constant companions. Cargile has even moved in with her. In addition, Stewart’s look has become increasingly androgynous.
In her award-winning French movie, Stewart plays the assistant to an aging French actress played by Juliette Binoche.
“You’re there to take care of her,” Conan said about the role. “The relationship between a celebrity and their assistant is very complicated.”
“As you know, which I’ve heard, by the way,” Stewart replied, referring to Movsesian, his assistant for the last six years.
Conan explained how his relationship has become personal in a way that goes beyond a simple working relationship. “It just happens after awhile when you have these relationships with people who you are… involved in each other’s lives and it gets kooky,” he said.
Then, Stewart explained her take on the situation. But was she drawing on her experience with her own long-time assistant, or on the movie?
“There’s so much isolation and protection that has to happen,” she replied.
“So, then you sort of like end up, kind of like, hiring a buddy, a confidante, like, somebody to organize your schedule, but in addition to that like kind of like live with you,” she explained.
“So yeah, it’s more complicated than just go buy me tampons because I’m too embarrassed to do that myself,” she added.
It’s hard to say which Stewart was talking about. But either way, the upshot is those kinds of relationships are platonic, she seemed to suggest.
