Kristen Stewart‘s life has taken a scandalous turn lately, and apparently her movie roles have, too. In her new film On The Road – an adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s Beat classic – Kristen plays the young wife of one the main characters and their steamy scenes have people talking.
The Twilight actress – who filmed the scenes before her cheating scandal became headlines – was eager to try something a bit more risky. “I wanted to do [the scenes]. I love pushing, I love scaring myself,” she said.
Check out the trailer:
In another recent interview Kristen stressed her desire to be on the edge. “…I like to be scared. I love to suddenly feel out of control,” she is quoted as saying. Interesting statements, and some say they are giving us insight into what may have motivated her affair with married director Rupert Sanders.
Maybe we’ll hear more from Kristen after the movie opens later this month – it’s being reported that the 22-year-old actress will make her first public appearance on the red carpet for the film’s premiere at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Unfortunately for Robsen fans – as expected Robert Pattinson won’t be at her side.
