Hollywood actress Kate Bosworth is set to appear in the movie Big Sur, which is based on the novel by Jack Kerouac. Kate has now been talking about her role in the movie and how she prepared for it, saying that she read through a lot of Jack Kerouac's books to get inspiration for her performance.
Bosworth was chatting with Collider, when she said, “I read almost all of his writings. Because there’s not a whole lot of material on my character in the film, I read a lot of the women of the beat generation, things that they had written and their sober observations of the chaos that ensued.”
She added, “I feel that with Billie, my character, other than what was written about her, that Kerouac wrote about her in Big Sur, I took a little of things that resonated with me from a lot of different women from the beat generation and their emotions from the time and their feelings.”
As well as Kate Bosworth, Big Sur also stars Stana Katic, Josh Lucas, Radha Mitchell and Henry Thomas. Big Sur is written and directed by Michael Polish and featured at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month.
