IFC: Is there anyone specific that you’d like to work with going forward?
RC: I met Kristen Stewart not long ago because I was involved with “On the Road” a
nd I found her to be so charming and interesting.
This is a huge compliment coming from Roman Coppola! He was the producer of On the Road and went to Cannes with the cast last May. Check out our Cannes pocket guide here!
Kristen talks with Fotogramas about Marylou, her character in On The Road, life after Twilight, and her ever-growing fanbase.

Kristen Stewart, a girl like others
The Kristen Stewart we met in Cannes at the premiere of ‘On the Road’ is different. More daring, more free. And she does not renounce her fame. She knows what is the reason for her success: she’s like her fans, that’s why they like her. She tells us why she’s a girl like the others.
Kristen Stewart (Los Angeles, 1990) has the look of an iconic person. With only 22, she has gotten into the skin of several legendary figures of the past and present. As Joan Jett of The Runaways (Floria Sigismondi, 2010), she approached the punk rock of the 70s to a young audience. With Snow White and the Huntsman (Rupert Sanders, 2012) breathed a contemporary determination to the heroin by the Brothers Grimm. And as Bella Swan in the pentalogy Twilight Saga she became the Juliet of a new generation. Now, in On the Road, an adaptation of the legendary novel by Jack Kerouac, Stewart plays Marylou, the lively travel companion of Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty. And despite all this history, she is still a young retracted girl finding his way to the microphones of journalists and the flashes of photographers, who she amazes -or desconcerts- with explosives looks. With her meet with FOTOGRAMAS at the Cannes Film Festival, the actress wears a shirt with the single cover of ‘Picture This’ of Blondie (design by Dolce & Gabbana), black mini-shorts, high heels and an orange Balenciaga leather jacket. There you have it.
