‘Twilight’s’ Kristen Stewart reveals she wanted” to shoot the sex scenes in ‘On the Road’ because she loves to ”push” and ”scare” herself. The twenty two year old was at the young age of sixteen when she had been cast as Marylou and had been relieved that filming had been delayed as she was at the ”perfect” point in her life to tackle the role.
”I was terrified of this part. I knew I was going to play Marylou since I was 16. And thank God I got to grow up a little bit, because I was a much younger 16 year old than LuAnne [Henderson, who the character is based on]. We made the movie when I was 20, the perfect point.
”But I love pushing, I love scaring myself. I really wanted to do the sex scenes. As long as you’re being really honest there’s nothing ever to be ashamed of.”
While Stewart says working on ‘On the Road’ was just as ”serious” as her efforts in the vampire film series, she does admit her approach to each differed because of the material she had been working with.
She explained to website The Arts Desk:
”Both were just as serious. I think the difference between the two adaptations was the approach to the script. In Twilight I was religiously obsessed with getting lines perfect, because I loved them, and I wanted them in a certain way and I knew that fans did as well, because I’m one of them.
”In ‘On the Road’ my expectations are very similar to any Beat fan – you don’t want something neatly packaged and contrived and delivered. A truer rendition of this book would be lines that were forgotten and rediscovered in the moment. You want to watch impulse, you want to watch people fall down and get up and not know what’s gonna happen next.”Stay up-to-date with us! Follow us on TWITTER, subscribe to our RSS FEED or E-MAIL us!
