Kristen Stewart offered job as a stripper!
Wednesday 20 October 2010
During research for her new film role, Kristen Stewart, the star of teen film series Twilight, has revealed that she was offered a job as a stripper.
In her new film Welcome to the Riley’s, Kristen plays a 16 year old stripper. As a result she had to spend many hours practicing in order to perfect the professional’s techniques.
Upon visiting a strip-club with the director, for research purposes, she was offered a job by the owners who did not recognise her as the Hollywood star she is. Stewart recently admitted “I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was, like, straight-up offered a job.”
As a result of her intensive training the actress said that she was left with loads of bruises “I pole-danced for two weeks, I had bruises all over my legs… it hurts!”
The film also stars Sopranos star James Gandolfini who plays Doug Riley, a broken man who helps an unruly underage stripper and prostitute in order to redeem himself. Welcome to the Riley’s is set to be released next month in a select number of cinemas.
