New Images of Kristen Stewart in Welcome to the Rileys
08.31.10 by REELZ
MTV has debuted 3 exclusive stills of a bruised and battered Kristen Stewart from upcoming movie Welcome to the Rileys. Stewart plays Mallory, a 16-year-old lap dancer who finds herself befriended by Doug (James Gandolfini), a grieving father mourning the loss of his daughter.
The new images show Stewart's character Mallory looking decidedly worse for wear, with cuts and bruises covering her face. The role is a far cry from The Twilight Saga's Bella, who is more homegrown-good-girl than teen prostitute. Stewart's always been one to choose smaller scale movies with a hard-hitting plot, with her portrayal of Joan Jett in The Runaways being her most recent. Sex and drugs don't deter her — if anything, they're the kind of movie she likes to sink her teeth into.
The 20-year-old actress said of Welcome to the Rileys that she's never "felt so personally involved in something" and that the movie changed her life. We can't wait to see her in a more gritty role, without any vampires or werewolves to contend with.
Welcome to the Rileys opens in theaters on November 5, 2010.
