Kristen Stewart Dishes Her True Feelings on Nudity and Sex Scenes

Kristen Stewart Went Shirtless for Her Latest Red Carpet
Kristen Stewart turned heads on the red carpet.

Kristen Stewart has never been shy about expressing her opinions. As for her feelings on nudity and sex scenes in films, she believes that Americans need to take a chill pill.

“The scenes in which I don’t have clothes on or the scenes that seem “risqué” from an outsider’s perspective, there was no acknowledgment on his [director Olivier Assayas] part,” Stewart says about her role in Personal Shopper. “They’re very fucking French. We are weirder about shit like that.”

During her recent interview with W magazine, the actress discussed her views on the often controversial topic of nudity and sex scenes in film because her upcoming indie flick Personal Shopper features a taste of that.

“I’m not weird about it. I’m pretty open,” she explains. “I think people are a little too fucking weird about it, to be honest, but that’s kind of why I was like, “I’ll do it.’”

Stewart says that she wants to “push” herself on “a constant basis” in her career. Being nude in Personal Shopper was a new way for her to do that. But, she explains that her nude scenes are a part of her characters journey and development.

“I’m really unashamed, but within the context of the story, there’s a lot of shame,” she says. “It’s kind of nice to see someone stripped and bare, totally bare. There’s a strength in it.”

The scenes in which Stewart is naked adds a deeper look into the loneliness, shame, and guilt her character feels throughout the movie. Without it, the film would be a “different thing.”

The former Twilight actress has a busy schedule ahead of her. After appearing in Equals and Cafe Society earlier this year, Stewart has not one but three projects premiering at New York Film Festival, including: Certain Women, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, and Personal Shopper.

If you hadn’t already noticed, Stewart is clearly an actress to keep your eyes (and ears) on for both her films and unapologetic opinions.
