In the new film Welcome to the Rileys, Kristen Stewart has a gritty role as a stripper. She’s obviously been trying to make films that distance herself from the Twilight set but Stewart does consider about how her fans will react to such a hardcore change of character.
In the new film, Stewart plays a prostitute who gives James Gandolfini a lap dance and offers her services to him (we feel dirty just typing that). It’s not quite the pure Bella we’re used to, and Stewart knows it. Knowing that her Twilight fans will never see any T&A in those films, though, Stewart says this is their chance to get a good look. “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!” She also explains, “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.”
Well, at least she’s consistent with the dead-inside (or undead, as it were) love interests. [Photo: GettyImages]
