LA Daily News interview

Kristen Stewart is waiting for me - and she looks pretty intense.

The 22-year-old actress is running behind schedule, and her handlers are concerned about getting her across town for an appearance on the "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" to promote "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II." Three weeks into its release, the movie remains a top the box-office chart earning more than $255 million domestically.

Still, she wants to take time to talk about her next film, "On the Road," coming out Dec. 21

In the movie, based on Jack Kerouac's enduring semi-autobiographical novel, Stewart plays Marylou, a free-spirited, sexually liberated young woman. She is one of the girlfriends/wives to the film's central character, Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund), the magnetic but self-destructive friend of narrator Sal Paradise (Sam Riley).

Dean was based on the infamous beat-generation figure Neal Cassady, Sal on Kerouac, himself, and Marylou on LuAnne Henderson, who married Cassady in 1945 at age 15.

"It's said that she was ahead of her time," says Stewart about Marylou, who is a very different character than "Twilight's" staid Bella Swan. "But it takes a particular kind of person to live a life like that. She sort of had an unlimited empathy."
