Director Walter Salles and Co-star Alice Braga (Terry) have been in Brazil doing press for the South American country’s July 13th Premiere of On The Road. During their press conference, both spoke very highly of Kristen.
iG Walter Salles again praises Kristen Stewart – “The director praised the Stewart’s ‘loyalty’ to the project even after the “boom” of ‘Twilight’, and its guarantees of a fortune (which was not the case with ‘On the Road’), and already gave a hint of her future works. ‘She told me what she wants to do and are upstream movies (against the grain; counterculture). Box Office success is not a concern for her.'” by Marco Tomazzoni
UOL Alice Braga on Kristen Stewart: “Alice confirmed that Walter ‘discovered’ Kristen Stewart before ‘Twilight’ and hoped that people no longer only associate her to the teen universe. ‘She’s a complete actress since childhood and shows she’s beyond the Girl from ‘Twilight’. I hope people stop associating her to this teen idol and start to see her as a great actress of her generation.'” by Estefani Medeiros
Terra Alice Braga praises Kristen Stewart again: “The actress also praised the work of Kristen Stewart, who plays the young Marylou in the film and is considered a somewhat controversial choice of Walter, due to be better known since the Twilight movies. ‘Kristen is a great actress of this generation, goes far beyond Twilight. The lack of shame to make her sex scenes are brilliant.’ she said.”
