'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart seems really excited about her 'Welcome to the Rileys' role, where she plays a "working girl." She talked to E! Online's Ted Casablanca about it.
How did she prepare for the role?
"Umm, Jake [Scott, the director] had a lot to do with my preparation and understanding of the type of person I was playing, and his serious regard of sensitivity towards those people. I play a girl who has sort of been stripped of any choice and really stripped of any normal upbringing. Like she couldn't establish who she was because of things that have happened to her and she became a 'working girl,' if you want to call it that.
"So in preparing for the role I talked to a lot of people, actually like three people in New Orleans, that were strippers that were working in this bar that we ended up using in the movie...—oh, but I did have to do pole dancing lessons! But you don't really see that in the movies."
"I was freaking out! The thing is my character is so, like, she just doesn't care. Basically nothing belongs to her. She'll give it to you like it doesn't bother [her]. So I had to drop that. She literally walks around with an open sore. Literally! She's just constantly like, 'Ugh, I'm fine, whatever.'"
