Quotes From Kristen Stewart at the Welcome to the Rileys Press Junket 2010-10-18 15:30:00

Kristen Stewart Talks About Visiting Strip Clubs and Her Reliable Twilight Buddies at Her Welcome to the Rileys Junket

Kristen Stewart was in LA over the weekend to collect her awards and look fabulous at the Spike TV Scream Awards, but by this morning she was in NYC to attend a press day for Welcome to the Rileys. The actress was back in her flannel to join costars James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo chatting about their movie alongside director Jake Scott. Kristen spoke about getting into and out of her troubled young stripper role and also opened up about reuniting with the Twilight gang and the rumors she'll do a sequel to Wanted. Kristen said:

  • On dressing like a stripper for the film: "What surprised me most was the fact that I was so unaware of the fact I was walking down the street with my robe open and just not caring at all. I had no inhibitions, I wasn't scared."
  • On the Twilight cast: "I'm really lucky to have my cast on the series because as soon as we get back on set together, you always think it's going to be hard to get back there but it's not. We've all wanted to tell the story for so long and it's all finally going to come to fruition."
  • On doing the sequel to Wanted: "People were talking about that a while ago, but I don't know what I'm doing next. I have no idea."
  • On how she gets out of a role: "The few things that I've done between the Twilight movies have just coincidentally been very different, but I haven't been like, 'Oh I'm going to shock everyone right now and do something totally different.' It's always been totally informed by something speaks to you and you need to do it."
  • On getting absorbed in her role: "I tend to — and I'm not being deadly serious about this, but it is kind of — but I tend to really offend people who are in my life when I go. Especially on this one. It was the first time I'd ever been alone on a movie. I loved stomping around the city like it was mine . . . So I didn't really miss too much, I was having a great time."

To read what Kristen said about going to a strip club for research,


  • On going to a strip club: "I went to my first strip club and upon entering the guy was like, 'You have to come back later if you want a job.' . . . So he must have thought you [Jake] were my pimp."
  • On being old enough for the role: "I'd known about this for a while before it got up and running . . . And 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."
  • On taking her character with her: "It's not just parts you play, it's sort of every experience you have in life shapes you and makes you who you are. Some of the most monumental experiences in my life have been working on films and playing parts, and this one more so than most — I don't want to compare them — but more than normal, had an effect on me."
