NEW YORK (CBS/ET) – Kristen Stewart learned to pole dance for her new movie, ‘Welcome to the Rileys,’ and she told ET it was painful and that she even got bruised during the learning process!
The ‘Twilight’ star stepped out for the premiere of ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ on Monday night in New York, and she told ET, “I did two weeks of it. … I did learn how to do it and I got bruises all over my legs. It’s hard, but it actually doesn’t look painful, but it is. It kinda beats you up.
“This is something that any girl can relate to: if you love yourself and you respect yourself, that’s the only way anybody else is going to,” Kristen says when it comes to her character in ‘Rileys.’
Kristen, who’s rumored to be dating her ‘Twilight’ onscreen beau, Robert Pattinson, also had words for another celeb couple — Katy Perry and Russell Brand. She sent a message to the pair, who are rumored to be about to get married any day now in India, saying, “Congrats, have fun in India. That’s great.”
In ‘Welcome to the Rileys,’ which opens in select cities on October 29, Kristen plays a 17-year-old runaway who impacts the lives of a couple (played by James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo) grieving the loss of their teenager.
