Kristen Stewart and Garrett Hedlund: What Do Their Parents Think of Racy 'On the Road' Scenes?
"My mom and my sister watched it next to me," Garrett, 28, said at a press event earlier today. "There were a lot of laughs. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing!"
"I think the only thing harder for a parent is watching [your child] in a dying scene," Garrett added. "I've died in, like, three films. To get [my mom] to watch I Am Sam I told her it was a comedy. She came back with pockets full of Kleenex."
As for Kristen?
"I think everyone was really happy it took a few years for the movie to get made," she said. "I haven't really [warned] them...my mom came to Cannes--she loved it and was really proud. I haven't talked to my dad about it yet, really."
"It's easy to be mature about it, and place it in a context and feel protective of it," the 22-year-old Twilight star added.
Director Walter Salles also commented on how mature Kristen was about the nude scenes.
"I think that she's such a mature and serious actress, that although the character is very different than who she is, she understood everything in the logic of the character made sense," Walter said.
In fact, Kristen added that Welcome to the Rileys was probably more difficult for her parents to watch.
"I was so overtly sensitive about anything to do with--not overtly sexual--just anything about a young girl," Kristen said about Rileys. "It rocked me and I think my parents could feel that as well."
