We’re still months away from “On The Road” hitting theaters, but Kristen Stewart’s costars in the film are already generating plenty of buzz for her performance. Garrett Hedlund, who plays Dean Moriarty in the film, has been making the rounds promoting “Tron: Legacy” and “Country Strong,” while Amy Adams, who plays Jane, has been busy supporting “The Fighter.” When MTV News caught up with both stars, they had nothing but the best things to say about KStew’s turn as Marylou in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel.
“[She is] incredible, and in this, everyone is going to get to see how hard of a worker she is, man. I mean, the devotion that she puts into her work, and her performance is going to be exposed highly in this,” Garrett gushed to interviewer Josh Horowitz.
No one has ever doubted Kristen’s work ethic, but this will definitely be the most serious role she’s had to date. A lot of critical eyes have been watching the progress of “On The Road” as it filmed in Montreal, and a well-received performance in this film could definitely up Kristen’s chances of becoming a critical darling and Oscar nominee.
Amy also had wonderful things to say about Kristen, emphasizing that “she’s awesome,” and she always knew that the “Twilight” star would put out a great performance in the film.
“I knew she had chops. I’ve seen her since ’Panic Room.’ I thought she was fantastic. So I kind of feel like she’s grown up onscreen,” Amy said. “She was great in ’Into the Wild.’ The girl’s got some chops. And on top of that she’s just really sweet.”
