Kristen stepped out to celebrate the NYC premiere of her dramatic new film and she revealed she was so good at playing a stripper, she could’ve gotten a job as a real one!

Kristen Stewart‘s knows how to work a pole — well at least according to her! The 20-year-old actress attended The Cinema Society & Everlon Diamond Knot Collection screening of her upcoming film Welcome to the Rileys at the Tribeca Grand Hotel Oct. 18, and she was completely candid about preparing for her role as Mallory, a troubled 16-year-old stripper in New Orleans.

“Well, I mean, like, doing this movie … one shocking thing was to find how easy it is [to flaunt your sexuality],” she told MTV. “Like, I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was, like, straight-up offered a job.”

Not that it was easy work: “I pole-danced for two weeks,” she says. “I had bruises all over my legs … it hurts!”

Since Kristen spends the majority of the movie running around New Orleans in fishnets, lacy bras and platforms, she revealed that she got hit on during a lot of her scenes!

“And then walking around New Orleans wearing the kind of stuff I was wearing literally could be like boom, boom, boom, done,” she said. “But I would never do that.”

As soon as the premiere was over, Kristen jetted off to the after party at the Club Room of the Soho Grand Hotel, where she partied with A-listers like Gerard Butler, Christina Hendricks, Danny DeVito, Olivia Palermo and fellow castmate James Gandolfini.

And get this — she hadn’t ever seen Gandolfini’s show, a little series called The Sopranos.
