The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Ste­wart stars in On the Road, a new film based on the clas­sic novel by Jack Ker­ouac that fol­lows some of the Beat Gen­er­a­tion’s an­tics and fea­tures the pro­tag­o­nist Dean Moriarty (Gar­rett Hed­lund). Twi­light star Ste­wart says she can see why free-spir­ited Dean is so ap­peal­ing to the op­po­site sex. ‘‘Hon­estly, the man that Dean Moriarty rep­re­sents was so . . . we got to talk to a lot of peo­ple who knew him and read ev­ery­thing about him,’’ she says. ‘‘But gen­er­ally speak­ing, yeah, sure, girls like a guy who is cool. Cool guys are cool.’’ Ste­wart hit head­lines af­ter she was pho­tographed kiss­ing mar­ried di­rec­tor Ru­pert San­ders. The star’s boyfriend and Twi­light co-star Robert Pat­tin­son was left dev­as­tated by the be­trayal, but is now be­lieved to have for­given her. The pair are due to ap­pear to­gether to pro­mote Twi­light fi­nale Break­ing Dawn – Part 2, which opens on Novem­ber 22.
