Kristen Stewart to Play a Stripper in New Movie


Looks as if Kristen Stewart is taking a pretty big turn in her latest movie.  I think we’re all used to see her play the hip, lip curling, mysterious weirdo chick.  This should be interesting.

Kristen Stewart plays a stripper in her new film. The ‘Twilight’ star portrays a 16-year-old runaway who gets into erotic dancing and occasional prostitution to earn money in the movie – which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Saturday – and Kristen admits it is a big departure for her.

The 19-year-old actress is seen dancing in platform heels, fishnets, a micro-mini skirt and a bra in one scene and the actress was nervous about shooting the sequence with co-star James Gandolfini.

Stewart admitted she was nervous putting on the fishnets but sources say she tried to “own it.”  Yeah Kristen!  Own those fishnets!  Turns out that Kristen trained with a professional trainer for two weeks and while she wanted to train in clothes the trainer said “you don’t stick to the pole when you do that.”

Please folks, insert as many puns as possible into that line.  In fact, I want this entire comment thread revolved around “sticking to pole” jokes.

In any event, I happen to be a fan of Stewart so I’m looking forward to seeing her strut her stuff.
