The 'Twilight' star remains a sex symbol, despite her best efforts, and it seems she has finally embraced this status in her latest role.
Her new film, On The Road, is a classic 60's US road trip drama featuring nudity and sex scenes that include threesomes with characters Dean (Garrett Hedland) and Sal (Sam Riley).
Kirsten plays Garrett's 16-year-old wife, wild child Marylou. The first front-on still of the film has been released and sees the 22-year-old baring her breasts as she sits naked in the back of a car.
Her co-stars also seem to have ditched their clothes. It's been reported that director Walter Salles got Kirsten and Garrett naked on the first day of shooting. Well, why waste time with pleasantries?
Kirsten told The Sun, "I wasn't scared, honestly."
"It's kind of insane to watch now. I'm like, 'Who is that?' But I think - as every actress says when they do this is - it just felt so right. It was so within a different world and so within a different environment that I don't even really feel - I am personally connected to it, of course - but it is something outside of myself."
Meanwhile, R-Pattz doesn't seem to be complaining as the couple have taken their first serious step as a couple and moved in together.
A source close to the pair said, "They love each other a lot because they can be real around each other. They have major trust with each other."
