Kristen Stewart Twilight Saga On the Road entertainment news

"It's a rough road. It's a fun road," Kristen Stewart says about the adventure to be found in her new film "On the Road," Walter Salles' adaption of Jack Kerouac's novel of bohemian drifters in post-war America. "There's a serious duality to it." Addressing her "Twilight Saga" fans in our podcast chat, she acknowledges that this edgy art-house role is new territory for her as an actress, "but, if you want to take a ride, please come along."

In "On the Road," Stewart portrays Marylou, the sultry jailbait lover of a hedonist who's always on the run. It's unclear where they're going or what they're running from – but that doesn't matter because these are free-spirited teens consumed with blind wanderlust.

"She's searching for that special little something that nobody can really put their finger on," Stewart says about Marylou. "The search never ends and that's perfectly OK with her …. She loves that life. She doesn't want to stop it. She wants it to thrive and she wants to watch what happens."

En route, there are lots of drugs, drinks and naked romps, but Stewart fearlessly surrendered to the creative requirements of the role. "I think there are times when people are far more naked than when they have their clothes on," she says. "The story is about breaking those walls down."

Having succeeded spectacularly in commercial films, Stewart now needs to break through the wall into artsy films if she aims to have a long, satisfying career. Stars like Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron are proof that the transition can be made by taking an artsy path. It's important to be part of the awards conversation, so Stewart does just that by chatting with Gold Derby. Listen to our podcast below.
