Kristen Stewart may have a legion of loyal fans all over the world, but two of her loyalist fans are her co-stars. And we’re not talking about Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner! Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley sat down with HollywoodLife.com to talk about their On The Road co-star, and they reveal what a great work ethic she has, and that she is anything but “grumpy.” How cool! Read on for all the details.
Kristen Is A ‘Passionate’ Actress
Kristen first met both Sam and Garrett long before she became famous for playing Bella Swan in Twilight, as On The Road has been in production for nearly six years. Speaking about Kristen’s work ethic, Garrett reveals that she is a very dedicated actress, who put a lot of time into preparing for her part as Marylou.
We asked Garrett if he thought Kristen brought something original to the part and he said:
“I do. Of course I do. When she read it [the book] she was 15. She was so passionate about it.I remember her explaining that when she read about these guys and Marylou, she wanted to know people like this. She wanted to chase after them.”
Garrett also said that Kristen put hours of time into prepping for the role:
“She had access to all these audio tapes… hours and hours of LuAnne Henderson [the real-life Marylou] talking about Jack [Kerouac] and Neal [Cassady]. She studied those tapes day in and day out and came up with a voice [for Marylou]. The wild stuff around her made her seem 20 years above her age.”
Wow, Kristen is clearly so dedicated to her craft. How impressive!
Kristen Is Not Grumpy
Kristen is known to be shy and and she does not like publicity, and in the past she has been perceived as grumpy, but Sam says there is simply no truth to these rumors.
“I didn’t have any preconceptions, you know, this idea that she was grumpy or something,” he tells us. “I didn’t know she was meant to be like that, and she never was. She’s a lot younger than me. She struck me as a pretty regular American teenager.”
Sam also revealed that Kristen and the rest of the cast were super excited to be in the movie, dispelling any notions that she is moody. “Everyone was so enthusiastic and excited to be doing it. There was no egos.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Kristen seems like a dedicated actress?
