We had the pleasure of interviewing one of our fave girls on the planet, Kristen Stewart, earlier today at the Sundance premiere of her film Welcome to the Rileys.
K.Stew looked Park City chic, bundled in a green jacket with her dark Joan Jett hair loosely pulled back, and was eager to talk about one of the roles she claimed to be most proud of. In WTTR, Kristen plays a "working girl," as she prefers to say, making it clear to her fans out there she's not just Bella Swan from Twilight.
Read on to hear Kristen talk about befriending strippers, what bores her, and how she freaked out before taking it all off onscreen...
Everyone is raving about your performance—how did you prepare for this particular, shall we say, slightly more risqué role?
"Umm, Jake [Scott, the director] had a lot to do with my preparation and understanding of the type of person I was playing, and his serious regard of sensitivity towards those people. I play a girl who has sort of been stripped of any choice and really stripped of any normal upbringing. Like she couldn't establish who she was because of things that have happened to her and she became a 'working girl,' if you want to call it that.
