During the filming of “Welcome to the Rileys” — Kristen Stewart’s new film in which she plays a runaway-turned-stripper — the “Twilight” superstar experienced a few things she did not anticipate. The prime examples were an offer to take a job as a stripper and getting into the head of such a different character .
Other unexplored territory for Stewart is that she seems to be growing more comfortable in her own skin and, in turn, growing as an actress. When MTV News asked her how she sees her performances now, versus her early work, Stewart wasn’t quite sure how to answer.
“I don’t know, man,” she said. “I really don’t know.”
But upon further rumination, Stewart said that, while she still gets hung up on the “little things,” she also feels that she has grown as an actor with every film she’s made.
“I could sit here and bring up little things that I wish I didn’t [do], little things that kill me, stuff that maybe other people don’t see but stuff that is very apparent to me,” Stewart explained of her tics. “It was so everything that it should be,” she said of her experience making “Rileys.” “If I did bring my little things to it, we did share a few personality aspects. I think that’s maybe why I was hired. It was a stretch, because obviously I live nothing like she lives, but it’s always really hard to say why you’ve progressed as an actor. I feel like I’ve gotten better with every movie.”
