Kristen Stewart Talks "On the Road" Nudity

Posted Monday December 10, 2012 6:40 PM GMT

Though she'll likely raise a few eyebrows for baring her breasts in her new film, "On the Road," Kristen Stewart is shrugging off the buzz.

The 22-year-old actress tells the Huffington Post, "I do hate also when people go, 'Oh, wow, great performance. So brave.' Oh, because I'm naked? That's very annoying. But at the same time, if that's what they're focusing on, then 'On the Road' probably isn't for them anyway."

A big fan of the 1957 novel, Kristen explains, "This book celebrates being alive and it celebrates being human, and if you want to cover up and deny any aspect of that, you are denying the spirit of the book."

Clearly showing her passion for the adaptation, the "Twilight" actress adds, "I need to be so rocked by something, so moved by something that the idea of letting it down or ruining it is painful, and that's what gets you through the shoot. If you start also considering what people are going to think, you'll never make a movie." "On the Road" hits theaters on December 21st.
