Like We Expected Anything Less! Kristen Stewart's New Co-Star, Garrett Hedlund, Says She’s ‘Fantastic’ In ‘On The Road!’

Mon, July 26, 2010 1:53pm EST by 22 Comments

Kristen’s hot new leading man says she’s perfect for the part of promiscuous road-tripper Marylou Moriarty in the big-screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic Beat Generation novel

You adored Kristen Stewart in the Twilight Saga films, loved her as Joan Jett in The Runaways and now, according to her latest co-star, you’re going to be absolutely obsessed with her after you see her in her latest flick, On the Road!

“She’s got it all there. She’s where she needs to be and further. She’s fantastic,” Garrett gushed to MTV News of his 20-year-old co-star. Kristen plays Marylou Moriarty –  the promiscuous first wife of his drifter character, Dean – in the film, which is based on Jack Kerouac‘s iconic novel.

The 25-year-old Tron: Legacy actor also confirmed that On the Road’s month-long “beatnik boot camp” is underway in Montreal right now; the cast is preparing for the film’s August 2 start date by doing “intensive research with biographers” – and they’re having a blast!

“We’ve had wonderful times up there in Montreal. Just hoping to make a wonderful film that can fulfill everyone’s expectations of what this can actually be,” he explained. “The family that we’re surrounded by is wonderful and unbelievable and, for me, I’m kind of on cloud nine.”

Why does the title of this article say that Garrett says she is perfect for the part? He never said that. He said the required positive comment and kept it understated. He knows why this movie has taken so long to complete. Hint. Kristen.

On the Road! the lead star are Dean Moriarty, Sal Paradise
, Carlo Max, Mary lou , Terry,Camille it was mainly an intellectual movement, lots of alcohol and some drugs. promiscuity was not an issue( kerouac was married as were his buddies.) kerouac was also a closet homosexual (Dean Moriarty with Carlo Max ). he could not come out because he was catholic and society did not approve of that lifestyle at the time. the 1950’s in the usa was all about conforming.” keeping up with the jones’s” Sticking to the rules. Kerouac and friends( ginsberg and other writers,painters,musicians et all, were rebelling against this. and questioning the american dream . i think stewart is too young and inexperienced to play a 30 year old. nor does she have the acting ability. she is limited and has no depth( limited that Adventure movie beause she sign pay On the road in 2007 ). the two male leads and k. dunst ( K. dunst play Camille have affair finaly wife Dean and have childen 3 after Mary Lou off ) possibly could pull it off, they have the talent. it’s up to the director and what he sees through jack kerouac’s eyes.if they get it right then it will be a first for hollywood. i should say . if they get it right no one will go see the movie, except those who lived and understood those times. if they get it wrong then they will have manipulated the whole point of the book. young people will not get the origional jist of kerouacs book. my point the movie will suck one way or the other. art film? or blockbuster?

I hate her acting to be honest. . .she plays the same person in all her movies. . . she kinda reminds me of Keanu Reeves but He’s done better at trying to change it up a bit in some of his movies. . . .

Do not believe any bs about Kristen and Garrett. She is with nobody. Rob is with the most beautiful and eligible girl in Hollywood. Kristen is wild, troubled and likes girls as per her Sundance Film Fest interview with Dakota.

Garrett is in love with Leighton Meester as per his confession at the LA premiere for Country Strong.
Garrett is as deep, nice and smart as he is cute, sexy and talented. The On The Road screen play will not be the same as the actual movie. Mark my words, it will be much more artsy than sexy. Garrett can act all of them under the table. He is amazing in all his past roles.

Go on You Tube Country Strong premiere LA and watch Garrett pick up Leighton and tell her he loves her. They had been separated for months while he filmed On The Road and promoted Tron internationally. Then watch him sing the Give Into Me song to Leighton (the one with over 1 million hits). Even the confused Robsten believers should be able to recognize what real steamy chemistry between a man and woman looks like by watching Garrett & Leighton. These two are soul mates and very blessed.

Check out You Tube title : Garrett Hedlund with Leighton Meester ‘Give In To Me’ – Country Strong Clip Make sure you watch the very end when he whispers in her ear and she is shocked. So sweet.

UNF….Garrett is so freaking sexy it’s unbearable. The face, the bod, the voice – he’s going to be amazing on On the Road. Kristen is one lucky girl going from making out to Robert on Eclipse to doing naughty scenes with Garrett for OTR! She’s my hero!

That’s funny. This is the same site that took cheap shot after cheap shot at KStew, like claiming she was dour, dressed poorly, and that she was party at a club opening, when in reality she attended a Red Cross event for Haiti. You’re just sucking up now to get traffic for your website. Shameless!!!
