Kristen Stewart understands the lure of the open road. So do her “On The Road” co-stars, Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.
The three young actors play the central love triangle in Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s Beat Generation novel, an experience that has helped them appreciate why the book is considered a classic.
The tale of wannabe writer (and Kerouac surrogate) Sal Paradise and his friend Dean Moriarty crisscrossing the United States in search of freedom and the elusive “it” was published in 1957. But Stewart said the way it captures the heady feeling of young adulthood is timeless.
“You’re so filled with something that is hard to identify at this age,” said the “Twilight” star, who plays Dean’s teenage bride Marylou, a free spirit torn between the lure of adventure and desire for a more settled life.
“Kristen and me at the afterparty. At the press conference before the screening, she said many kind things about me and my books, especially ONE AND ONLY, for which I am very grateful. She is not only beautiful, she is one of the brightest young people I have met in many years. And there’s a fire in her that I think will make her one of the top actors in her generation.” (Via Gerald Nicosia’s Facebook)

Hammond had a chance to talk with Kristen today after ‘On the Road’ premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
When I got my chance to chat with Stewart who is here (with her mother too) for her first Cannes ever, she told me she didn’t know what to make of the visible glowing reaction from the Grand Lumiere crowd after the film ended. “It was a very surreal experience for me. I didn’t know what to think. But if they had all roundly booed us I believe everyone in our row would have stood up and said ‘yeah, you go!’,” she said in the counter-cultural spirit of the film’s characters who behave in anything but conventional ways. Stewart has some topless nude scenes in the film which epouses sexual freedom even in the uptight era of the 50′s in which the beatnik story is set. For her playing Marylou (based on Luanne Henderson who at age 15 married Neal Cassady – known in the film as Dean Moriarty) was a challenge and one she was eager to take. Salles had seen her in Into The Wild and cast her in 2007 before Twilight turned her into a pop culture icon. Like most of the cast members she had to hang in there for a while before it finally came to fruition. Her agents urged her to drop out. “They kept saying ‘don’t do it’. It’s not on the page’ but I disagreed and I am so glad we all did it. I do relate to her in some ways but I am nothing like Marylou at all. I internalize everything. She’s the opposite,” she said. It certainly worked out. Stewart delivers here and audiences will see a side of the star they haven’t seen before.
