Kristen Stewart Says Dancing Scares Her More Than Sex Scenes in Her New Film 'On the Road'
The wait is over for Kristen Stewart's sexually charged and free-spirited performance as Marylou in the onscreen adaption of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road.
The indie film opens in limited theaters today and the the actress gives a rather revealing interview about the challenges of her role.
Kristen plays a 16-year-old wife opposite Garrett Hedlund —Kirsten Dunst's real-life boyfriend and says the sex scenes weren't an issue for her, it was the dancing she had to do in the movie that was intimidating.
"The dancing scene was so much more terrifying than any of the sex scenes were for me. I was so scared of it," she told IndieWire. "We crammed, I think, 60 extras into a tiny little room. Literally, I could feel the floor vibrating. It was so f--king cool. But I was terrified."
One reason the 22-year-old might not be freaked out by sex scenes is because she knows it's not real.
"Well, I wasn't really having sex," she says. "To be honest, I think if you were to isolate the scenes, it's fairly ridiculous watching yourself fake have sex," she added. "But within the movie, watching the movie, I do get so caught up in this one. I've seen it three times, and that’s not typical for me."
