TWILIGHT star Kristen Stewart says she has thrown herself into the carefree sexuality of her new role in the Cannes contender On the Road.

Stewart, 22, said that after Twilight's innocent Bella, baring it all as the uninhibited Marylou for giddy depictions of free love in the screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's classic novel had been a breath of fresh air.

"I love pushing, I love scaring myself. I think to watch a genuine experience on screen is just so much more interesting," the Los Angeles-born star told reporters.

"The reason I wanted to do the job is because, you know, you read something, you're provoked on some level and then it's just taking that further and being able to live it and I always want to get as close to the experience as I possibly can.

"As long as you're always being really honest, there's nothing ever to be ashamed of."
