Having proved her acting clout in The Runaways and Adventureland, Kristen Stewart is back in the independent drama, Welcome To The Rileys, in which she plays a runaway and a strip club dancer, starring alongside the likes of James Gandolfini.
Following the story of a family dealing with the death of their daughter, Kristen Stewart once again demonstrates her talent outside of the Twilight franchise.
The film played Sundance, Berlinale and LA film fests. It opens in September in Norway, France and the US in November, so far.
The notoriously shy star apparently flew in one her best friends Nikki Reed to coach her through the difficult nude scenes the film requires – and also allegedly worked in a ’strip bar’ for a week to prepare for her role.
