The gal pals once again piqued the interest of tabloids because they were also spotted holding hands as they stopped by an L.A. bookstore.
Various tabloids have reported that there’s much more to Stewart’s relationship with Cargile than meets the eye. Speculation has centered on whether the two have become more personal and even possibly lovers.
The latest sighting comes on top of earlier ones in which the two have been out and about together also holding hands. On one occasion Stewart was aslo spotted with her arm around her personal assistant.
Cargile also vacationed with Stewart.
Neither, of course, have commented on the nature of their relationship. Stewart appeared to shed some light on the matter when she stopped by Conan O’Brien’s show Apr. 8 to talk about her movie “Clouds of Sils Maria.”
The subject came up when Stewart asked O’Brien about his relationship with his personal assistant Sona Movsesian. He’s worked with her for almost 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.
Stewart seemed to agree without any hint that her relationship is also sexual.
“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.
Ironically, “Clouds of Sils Maria,” is about the relationship between an older actress played by Juliette Binoche and her young assistant. Stewart won the French equivalent of an Oscar for her role.
