For the record, Kristen Stewart will NOT be appearing on the series finale of The Vampire Diaries.
Don't believe everything you read. Some of it is nutty.
But here is something true about the actress that you may find surprising:
She takes many layers of clothing off in the upcoming film Personal Shopper and she engages in some sex on screen.
Stewart has never exactly shied away from being edgy, but she's clearly come a very long way from The Twilight Saga as well.
What did she think about her nudity in the movie? Was she at all scared to pretend to make love on screen?
“I wasn’t apprehensive,” Stewart tells W Magazine about the role and all it entailed, adding:
“I feel super great with director Olivier [Assayas], as well. The scenes in which I don’t have clothes on or the scenes that seem ‘risque’ from an outsider’s perspective, there was no acknowledgment on his part.”
The movie was shot in Paris and was helmed by a French filmmaker, prompting the actress to note that Americans “are weirder” about sexuality than Europeans.
It's probably a valid point.
“You kind of have to take yourself personally out of it,” she explains. “My personal feeling about that is that I’m really unashamed, but within the context of the story, there’s a lot of shame.
"She lives and breathes f-cking shame and guilt. And so it’s kind of nice to see someone stripped and bare, totally bare.”
Stewart went on to contend that sex scenes can be empowering for actresses, but also acknowledged the following:
“There’s an aspect of sexuality in the movie that’s so lonely and that is just one of the saddest things.”
Personal Shopper is described on IMDB as a "ghost story" that centers on the "fashion underworld in Paris."
Color us very intrigued.
Stewart is front and center on the movie's poster, as you can see here:
“There’s just something so f-cking raw about it,” Stewart says of the role, expounding on female nudity in general:
“I think people are way, way, way too precious about that.”
The actress concludes:
“I still want women’s bodies and the way they want to reveal them, it should be a precious thing, I don’t want to de-sexualize it in some way. But at the same time, I’m not weird about it. I’m pretty open. I think people are a little too f-cking weird about it, to be honest, but that’s kind of why I was like, 'I’ll do it.''
