Kristen Stewart had a big weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival. Promoting her new film, On the Road, alongside her costars Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst, the Twilight actress beamed with pride over her new role. The film, based on the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac, follows Sam Paradise (Sam Riley) a writer who embarks on a journey across the country with his hero Dean Moriarty (Hedlund) and his wife Marylou (Stewart). The film opened to brilliant reviews, and the proud Stewart seemed in good spirits as she was interviewed on the red carpet.
In her first interview since the news of her affair with Snow White And The Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, she seemed to be in a good place. Of her experience with On The Road she said,
“I would have been happy standing at Cannes with the entire theater booing it as long as I was in that row with my cast and with Walter [Salles]. We would have been fine. I feel so strong with these people, and it’s so appropriate. I belonged there.”
“The great thing about On the Road is that it really can crack open your shell, and I definitely realized things about myself that I didn’t realize before. That I can let my face hang out and not be too aware of it, and stop questioning myself and not be afraid of strangers, and stop being judgmental.”
When asked about the future of the Twilight franchise, and the possibility that she and Robert Pattinson would be walking the red carpet together for the premiere of Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, she appeared hopeful.
“We’re going to be fine. We’re totally fine.”
In other news from TIFF, Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence finally met for the first time and seemed to become fast friends! The Hunger Games actress was at the festival promoting her new film Silver Linings Playbook with Bradley Cooper. Sources attending the festival claimed that the two girls immediately hit it off and connected on their shared experiences as the stars of a major franchise.
It seems they’ve put any rumors of a feud to rest, good for them!
