Twilight actress Kristen Stewart has admitted that, while she loves the film On The Road, she thinks that the Oscar speculation surrounding the movie is ridiculous. Kristen says that she is more than happy to push a movie because she is proud of it, not just to get it an Oscar nomination.
Stewart was talking to The Huffington Post when she said, “I love talking about this movie and everyone involved and the book and everything I’ve been through since the start of it. I would do anything to get the word out.”
She added, “The fact that it has something to do with the Academy, I simply personally can’t acknowledge it in any way because it’s a ridiculous notion to suddenly go, like, ‘Yep, I’m really gunning. I’m really gunning for it.”
On The Road is the big screen adaptation of the Jack Kerouac novel and also stars Tom Sturridge and Garrett Hedlund. The film sees Kristen Stewart play one of her most controversial roles to date, as On The Road sees her character Mary-Lou go topless. On The Road is set to be released in the US this month.
