Kristen Stewart has revealed she went to a strip club to research her new role as a stripper - and got offered a job.
The 20-year-old Twilight star, who plays a 16-year-old sex worker befriended by grieving father Doug (James Gandolfini) in new indie flick Welcome To The Rileys, told The Sun how she went to research the role with director Jake Scott.
Kristen revealed: "I went to my first strip club and the guy was like, 'You have to come back later if you want a job' - they must have thought Jake was my pimp."
The teen idol - known for playing vampire Bella Swan in the Twilight films - revealed she was surprised how comfortable she felt walking around with hardly any clothes on.
She said: "What surprised me most was probably the fact I was so unaware that I was walking down the street with my robe open, wearing fishnets and just not caring at all. I had no inhibitions, I wasn't scared."
But Kristen admitted pole dancing was not so easy, as it left her covered in bruises.
She said: "I learned how to pole dance even though you only see it for a second in the film
"I got bruises in rehearsal. It really hurts. You don't realise that of course it's going to show."Quote from Source
