Kristen Stewart plays stripper Mallory in her new movie, Welcome To The Rileys, and says that she was surprised at how comfortable she was in the role.
She said, “I think what surprised me most is probably the fact that I was so unaware of the fact that I was walking down the street with my robe opened and fishnets and beyond caring at all. I wasn’t scared. I had known about this for a while before it got up and running. I’m really glad that it took a while to do so, because I think I was old enough to play the part, as opposed to not ready. I think I would have shied away from too much, so it was shocking to find myself in situations like that, being completely fine with them.”
She went on to reveal that she had no preconceived notions about how dancers act and said that the location of the shooting, New Orleans, and the clothes she had to wear, helped her get into character.
She added, “I think what is cool about the costume is you think stripper. I don’t think a whole lot when I think stripper, to be honest. A lot of people have certain ideas about how they must be but I didn’t really have any. But I always imagined they’d be sexy at least or something because that’s sort of their job but it’s on the contrary.”
