Kristen Stewart’s next role is going to show a little different side of her than her work as Bella in the popular Twilight Saga. And by a different side, we mean her back side, and probably her front side too.
In the new film, “Welcome to The Rileys,” she will be playing a young lap dancer and prostitute with James Gandolfini who we hope will not be playing a similar role. In her role as Mallory, Stewart expected to be spending a good deal of her screen time completely naked.
The actress — who shot to fame in the teen-friendly Twilight movie franchise — plays the promiscuous Mallory in the independent drama film.
Here’s what she said in a recent interview.
“It’s an independent movie that nobody would normally see and now it’s like, ‘Oh, let’s go see Bella in this stripper movie; it’ll be crazy! Working with James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo, who is just incredible, was the most fruitful life-changing experience on a movie that I’ve ever had.
It was just the hardest subject matter I’ve ever had to deal with — I play a very broken young girl who is a runaway. She’s a street kid. She’s working in a strip club and James Gandolfini’s character is just as dead inside as she is — and they wake each other up.”
