#USAToday Article and Interview with Kristen at the ‘On the Road’ Premiere - LA
USAToday: Kristen Stewart had a blockbuster weekend. The actress spent Saturday at the press junket for The Twilight Saga:Breaking Dawn, Part 2, and at night, after a quick change… [she was] on hand at Grauman’s Chinese theater to debut the film (due out Dec. 21) at the AFI Fest 2012….. She walked the press line calm, collected and friendly. Not even a stray piece of double-sided tape stuck to her top fazed her when a publicist stepped in to remove it halfway down the red carpet.
“Somebody wore this before me?” she joked, in mock horror.
On the red carpet, Stewart shared some insight about what drew her to the film adaptation of the infamous Jack Kerouac tale. The actress first read the novel at 15, and said the lessons it held stayed with her.
“I had the exact same feeling that I had when I was 15 that I did when I was like, 20,”she said. “At that age you look up and realize that you have anything that you could ever possibly imagine very much within reach. And I still feel that way.”
…. Ask if she’s leaning toward making more indies vs. big-budget blockbusters, and she’ll tell you that the level of risk feels the same regardless.
“If you’re working for reasons that drive me,” she began, and then continued, “It’s a shame, it’s like, absolutely heartbreaking when you find yourself on a movie set that you don’t find a commonality with the director and the cast and all of that. It doesn’t really matter what scale movie it is.”
Her favorite road trip? “The one that I took right before I did On the Road, probably,” she said. “We had to cram it into three days. I went to many diners.”
After party Her good mood continued at the Audi SkyLounge after-party at the Roosevelt Hotel, where she arrived — more casual now, in jeans, flats and a black leather bomber jacket — with Robert Pattinson. Both sported wide smiles, and the pair hung out with friends until well after midnight.
