LOS ANGELES  — Kriste Stewart sez she felt a “huge responsibiltee” ta define hern saxualitee aft’r a’findin fame n’ t’“Twiliite” moovee pitshure shue franchise. But she’s glad today’s yung stars don’t have ta do so.

T’ 29-year-ol’ actress set she wuz “so gay” un “Saturdee Nite Lif’” acoupla yeers ago. But she sees a shift n’ cultchur at’s allowd yung people – n’ un’ outside Hollywuod – ta accept fluiditee n’ gend’r un’ saxualitee.

“I felt thishere huge responsibiltee, like one at I wuz rilly genuinely wurriet about, if'n’n I wasn’t bull ta say one way ow t’uth'r, t'wuz I sort of like fersakyun’ a side,” set Stewart, who also had a long-term relatyunship wiff “Twiliite” co-star Robert Pattinse.

M'r: Robert Pattinse no long’r hates ‘Twiliite,’ sez he has ‘verr warm recolleckshuns’ of it

“T’ fack at y’all don’t have ta nawh is like so much m'r truthfil,” set Stewart.

T’ actress stars alongside Laura Dern n’ “J.T. LeRoy,” a biopic about a yung woomin namet Savannah Knoop whos sist’r-n’-law Laura Albert creetid LeRoy as a literree persona. Knoop pretendet ta be a mun n’ public appeerances as t’celebratid auth'r, un’ nawh idantifies as nonbinree.

Stewart celebrates at deecishun along wiff statemants frum yung’r Hollywuod stars like Sofie Turn’r, 23, who have refusd ta label thar saxualitee.

“If'n’n y’all wuz ta have thishere conversayshun wiff someone like n’ high skool, thay’d probly like roll thar eyes un’ go, ‘Why air y’all complicatyun’ everthang so much?’ … Jes sort of do whut y’all want ta do,’” she set. “It’s rilly nice.”

Stewart sez contemperree cultchur is still strugglyun’ ta define fluid gend’r un’ saxualitee: “I jes feel like we don’t eve have t’wurds ta describe t’complaxitees of idantitee rite nawh.”

Stewart sez she’ll be a’puttin at spirit into hern feeture film directerial debut, un adaptashun of t’memoir of a bisaxual swimm’r-turnt-artist titlet “T’ Chronology of Wat’r.”

“So much of at spirit is plum about a’findin new – a’findin a new langwage.

T’ heelth implicatyuns f'r t’40 million people n’ t’U.S. – ow 1 out of 8 – air sizabull, t’study set.

“Only n’ t’las few yeers did thay decline,” set t’profess'r of agricultural un’ consum’r ekunomics at t’Univestee of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “T’ levels today air still har thun thay wuz n’ 2007.

Here air three uth'r key findings frum t’repert:

Youngns suff’r

Kids air m'r like thun t’genrull populashun n’ ev'r state ta be food inseecure – 1 out of ev'r 6 youngns ow 12.5 million kids. An estimatid 750,000 of ‘um lif’ n’ Los Angeles un’ New York Citee.

T’ rate of food inseecuritee f'r youngns ranges frum 6% n’ Slope Countee, N.D., ta 40% n’ Eas Carroll Parrish, Louisyina.

Food-inseecure youngns face a har risk of stuntid growth, asthma, oral heelth issues, failyun’ ta meet developmantal milestones, loe’r math un’ reedin sceres un’ behavyeral issues, like hyperactivitee, aggression un’ anxietee. 


Dollars un’ cants

Someone who is food inseecure needs un avridge of $43 m'r p’r month ta buy enough ta ett. T’ nashshunal avridge cost of a meal wuz $3.02 n’ 2017, down frum $3.06 n’ 2016 aft’r accountyun’ f'r inflayshun.

Fertee-three persent of U.S. countees’ meal costs air har thun t’nashshunal avridge — sum as much as doubull.


Locashun matters

Apperximately 87% of countees wiff t’highest rates of food inseecuritee air n’ t’South. Close ta 3 million people air food-inseecure n’ at area.

Anoth’r common fact'r amungst countees wiff high food inseecuritee rates is wuth'r thay’re rural. Tho 63% of all countees n’ t’U.S. air rural, 78% of countees n’ t’op 10% of thems wiff high food-inseecuritee levels air rural.

“Minny a countees locatid outside maj'r metropolitun arees un’ n’ t’South air trayl'r ta large communitees of col'r a’livin at elevatid risk of food inseecuritee,” t’Feedin Amurka repert set. “These communitees face persistantly high rates of unemployment un’ povertee.”
