There has been a lot of talk about the fact that Kristen Stewart went topless for a scene in the movie On The Road and Kristen has now opened up about it. Kristen says that she felt the film definitely needed the topless scene to stay true to the book.
While talking to The Huffington Post, Stewart explained, “Actresses love to stand up and say, after they've shown their tits in a movie, that it was done tastefully and that it was, you know, far from gratuitous. I mean, projects that really require it are really few and far between. And I think that in this case, it needed to be.”
She added, “This book celebrates being alive and it celebrates being human, and if you want to cover up and deny any aspect of that, you are denying the spirit of the book. I think that it would have been so wrong to shy away from anything in this movie. I think that I would have gotten flak for that. I think that it would have been that I was scared to disappoint my Twilight fans or something.”
Kristen Stewart stars alongside Garrett Hedlund and Tom Sturridge in On The Road, which has already been released in the UK and is set to be released in the US later this month.
