Kristen Stewart is featured in the new issue of W Magazine in their ‘Best Performances of 2012’ Feature. In the interview, Stewart is vocal about how passionate she was about playing Marylou in ‘On the Road’ and the difficulties she had filming the part.
She says, “Everyone asks about the nude scenes in On the Road, but I also had to dance, and dancing is harder than being naked. My character, Marylou, is so exuberant, and I had five minutes to do something that showed she was sort of like the craziest motherfucker around. In the book, it says, ‘Dean takes Marylou and they do a love dance and no one can take their eyes off them.’ It’s one sentence. And I was mad-intimidated by it.”
She adds, “We did the dance four times to the song ‘Salt Peanuts.’ By the end, I was as red as a fire truck. I was holding onto Garrett [Hedlund] because I was going to fall over. I almost passed out every single time.”
The feature is available in the current W Magazine issue, and her cover photo looks quite similar to the paparazzi photos we usually see of Stewart: make-up free with flawless skin, if a little gaunt and unsmiling.
