It has been known that Kristen Stewart plays a stripper in "Welcome to the Rileys" though it cannot be seen in a recently released clip from the movie. However, the contributors to Trailer Park Movies's MySpace Blog who had a chance to watch the premiere of the film at 2010 Sundance Film Festival reported that the actress has shown off a little bit of her skin while doing a racy scene.
According to the site, Stewart is seen doing a pole dancing in platforms while donning "an extremely short skirt" at the first scene of the movie. Few moments later, there was a scene which allegedly gives a glimpse of the 19-year-old beauty's "bare rear end."
On the red carpet of the premiere on Saturday, January 23, Stewart admitted to reporters that she was a bit freaked out the first time she put on all the fishnets. "I really tried to own it though," she added. "I was able to walk around the streets. I was literally walking down the street in cut-off shorts and a robe that was cinched. I looked like a crackhead!"
Director Jake Scott has also claimed he will not expose Stewart's naughty side in the movie, saying "This is not about a stripper. It's about a damaged child." Stewart then agreed the helmer's statement, saying "The cool thing about my character is she is not sultry and she is not sexy. She sort of throws herself into all her moves. I tore myself up doing it."
"Welcome to the Rileys" centers its story on Mallory, a troubled teenager who becomes a lap dancer as well as a prostitute. On a business trip to New Orleans, a damaged man meets her. Later, he and his wife try to help Mallory. The young woman, in return, unites the grieving couple who has drifted apart after the death of their daughter.
Beside Kristen Stewart who takes the major female character, the movie has James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo portraying the married couple. Also among the cast ensemble are David Jensen and Lance E. Nichols. Directed by Jake Scott, the indie flick is planned to be dropped in U.S. theaters in 2010 by Argonaut Pictures.
