Most Hollywood actresses know how to sell a stripper movie: Go nude and let the press know that you went nude. Jessica Biel, Demi Moore, Elizabeth Berkley, Roselyn Sanchez, Daryl Hannah, and Lindsay Lohan have all done it. Marisa Tomei even scored a Oscar nod last year for taking it off in the Mickey Rourke comeback vehicle The Wrestler.
Not so for Twilight’s Kristen Stewart. The 19-year-old actress is downplaying her role as a stripper-hooker (she doesn’t go naked) in director Jake Scott’s indie-drama Welcome to the Rileys. In an extremely inarticulate interview with MTV at Sundance, Stewart said the movie was “really not like a stripper movie at all” and that “you never see me stripping.”
Check it out:
Stewart seems to grow more agitated and uncomfortable during the interview when she attempts to talk about the downtrodden strippers she met while shooting in a “dingy bar” on Bourbon street. While she does a piss-poor job of selling the flick, her uneasiness over this part is kind of hot. Like my old man always said, “Son, the lap dance is so much better when the stripper is crying.”
Welcome to the Rileys may be good drama—who knows—but, if you were hoping to see Bella in the buff, you’re going to be disappointed. You’re better off ogling Twilight costars Ashley Greene in her Sobe ad or Christian Serratos’ bare ass in this PETA poster.
