Kristen Stewart Admits Camp X-Ray Fears
And reveals how she came up with a name for her new dog…
Kristen Stewart has revealed that she had serious doubts about playing a prison guard in new movie Camp X-Ray.
Speaking at the Sundance Film Festival, Stewart confessed that she was worried people wouldn’t buy into her character - a young, conflicted guard at Guantanamo Bay.
"I was so nervous when I first started working and preparing because I didn't think that people would believe me or think that I looked tough in a uniform," she said, "that I could do that job, that I could wrangle detainees that are massive and scary."
While she may have been nervous about playing a prison guard, she was more than happy to share her character’s name with her new dog.
Speaking to MTV News at the festival, she said: "I have a pup, yeah. I actually got on her on 'Camp X-Ray' and named her my character name, which is so embarrassing. But it's so cute. Young Cole.
"She's a mutt. We found her on a frisbee golf course, and she was small and scared."
While the actress was happy to chat about her new role and her new pup, K-Stew wasn’t so keen to talk about her new tattoos. Stewart confirmed that the tattoos are both real and new, but wouldn’t explain what they depicted or why she’s had them done.
K-Stew and Nicholas Hoult will be teaming up in a new movie version of George Orwell's 1984.
