MOVIE IS CALLED "ON THE ROAD" ♪ ♪ ♪.

>> Jon: DAMN HIPPIES.

PLEASE WELCOME KRISTIN STEWART.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) HOW ARE YOU?

PLACE PLAUS NICE TO SEE YOU, THANKS FOR COMING ON THE SHOW.

>> THIS IS COOL.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SITTING HERE.

>> Stephen: IT'S REAL LUCITE, BABY.

LET ME ASK YOU, SO I WOULD THINK THE HARDEST THING TO DO IN ACTING IS DANCE, LIKE

JUST BE UNINHIBITIED.

I DON'T THINK-- I CAN BARELY DO IT AT PARTIES WHEN I'M HAMMERED.

>> YOU KNOW, THIS IS ME MOST OF THE TIME.

I'M DEFINITELY --

>> A WALL FLOWER.

>> ABSOLUTELY.

>> Stephen: SO HOW DO THEY-- WHAT DO THEY DO TO GET YOU GUYS TO BE UNINHIBITIED OR TO LET LOOSE?

DO THEY HAVE TO-- IS THAT TWO HOURS INTO IT, HOW DO THEY DO IT?

>> YOU'RE DOING ON THE ROAD, DON'T MESS IT UP.

>> DID YOU FEEL THAT PRESSURE.

>> YEAH, I THINK THAT WAS THE MAIN THING THAT SORT OF KICK STARTED EVERYTHING FOR

US, IS WE SORT OF FELT LIKE WE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR IT YEAH, I WAS PRETTY SCARED OF

THAT SCENE.

BECAUSE MY MOM-- HOMES ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN WHERE I REALLY GET TO EXHIBIT, YOU

KNOW, LIKE PURE SORT OF WILD NATURE, EXUBERANCE.

>> Stephen: AND ARE YOU SUCH A MUSE IN THE FILM THAT IT IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT

CATALYST ELEMENT.

>> YES, IT IS.

SHE DEFINITELY NEEDED TO REPRESENT WHAT THE IT OF ON THE ROAD IS.

>> Stephen: RIGHT.

>> AND WORDILESSLY SORT OF NEEDED TO.

>> Stephen: HAVE YOU HEARD FROM THE BEAT GENERATIONMENT I WOULD THINK YOUR

GENERATION WOULDN'T NECESSARILY BE AS INVESTED IN IT, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE EVEN I, IT WAS BEFORE MY TIME.

WE ALL READ IT IN HIGH SCHOOL, "CATCHER IN THE RYE" AND ON THE ROAD AND ALL THAT.

>> NO, YOU DIDN'T.

>> Stephen: OH, WHAT, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

I GOT MANY A SCENE, YEAH, I Z ALL THOSE.

WHEN DID YOU START ACTING.

>> I WAS LIKE 9 OR 10.

>> Stephen: AND WAS THAT PRETTY FULL-TIME LIKE DID YOU GO TO REGULAR SCHOOL,

DID YOU GO TO LIKE MORE OF A I GUESS ON THE SET TYPE THING.

>> I STAYED IN PUBLIC SCHOOL UNTIL I WAS IN MIDDLE SCHOOL AND THEN I SORT OF, I NEEDED

TO KEEP MY GRADES UP.

AND THAT DIDN'T WORK IN PUBLIC SCHOOL.

>> Stephen: WHEN THEY ARE DOING THAT ON THE SET, DO YOU HAVE TO RUN THROUGH ALL

THAT LIKE WHEN I WAS A KID WE HAD TO LIKE READ, YOU KNOW, ON THE ROAD AND THEN DELIVERANCE BUT THEY WOON

EVEN DO THAT NOW IN SDOORBLTION IS TOO CONTROVERSIAL I WOULD GUESS.

BUT HOW DO THEY, WHAT DO THEY DO?

JUST HAVE A GUY IN A TRAILER LIKE READ THIS AND THAT IS THE EXTENT OF IT.

>> LET ME SEE AT THAT POINT I SAW ON THE ROAD ON A READING LIST AS A FRESHMAN

THAT IS HOW I READ IT FOR THE FIRST TIME.

PROBABLY SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE SCHOOLS, I THINK IT IS USUALLY A LITTLE OLDER

OR POSSIBLY NOT AT ALL.

>> Stephen: RIGHT.

>> NOWADAYS THAT WOULD BE ONE OF THOSE BANNED BOOKS THAT LIKE IT'S ALMOST LIKE

IN FOOT LOOSE NOW, YOU CAN'T HAVE THIS KID DANTZING.

>> RIGHT.

>> Stephen: YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT HIM READING ABOUT DRIVING AND DANCING.

>> ALL THAT DRIVING.

>> Stephen: AND THAT SORT OF THING.

>> YEAH, I DON'T KNOW.

I WENT TO --

>> MORE PROGRESSIVE.

>> YES.

>> Stephen: WELL, THAT'S NICE.

>> I KIND OF GOT TO DESIGN MY CURRICULUM SOME.

WHAT IT WAS COOL?

IN HIGH SCHOOL.

>> YEAH.

>> Stephen: THIS HAS TO BE CALIFORNIA.

>> IT WAS INDEPENDENT STUDY.

I WAS AN ACTOR, YOU KNOW.

>> Stephen: WAS IT OTHER ACKER, WAS IT LIKE OTHER ACTOR KIDS OR JUST A REGULAR CALIFORNIA.

>> I THINK I COULD HAVE GONE TO A PROM.

I WAS INVITED TO A PROM.

I WAS LIKE WHO IS GOING TO SHOW UP TO A PROM.

THE SCHOOL BARELY EXISTS IN A LITERAL --

>> THERE WAS A PROM AT THAT SCHOOL.

>> YEAH.

>> Stephen: SO IT WAS REALLY A KID ASKED YOU TO HIS HOUSE.

>> YEAH.

>> Stephen: COME TO MY BASEMENT!

IT'S PROM THAT'S GREAT.

YOU WERE INVOLVED IN THIS FILM THOUGH, EVEN BEFORE YOU, YOU KNOW, QUOTE, UNQUOTE,

HIT, THE BEFORE THE BIG TWILIGHT MOVIES AND ALL THAT.

WHAT DREW YOU TO IT BEFORE ANY OF THIS OTHER MATERIAL?

>> I WOULD HAVE DONE ANYTHING ON THIS FILM.

I WOULD HAVE FOLLOWED IN A CARAVAN OR CATED FOR EVERYONE, DONE PROP SERVICE.

>> WAS IT THE NOVELL THAT SPOKE TO YOU, WAS IT SOMETHING THAT JUST HIT YOU

THE RIGHT WAY AND YOU FELT LIKE MAN, I JUST WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN THAT.

>> YEAH, IT WAS MY FIRST FAVORITE BOOK IT WAS THE FIRST TIME, I ALWAYS DID

OKAY IN SCHOOL BUT IT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT I HAD, I MEAN, YOU KNOW, FOR A LOT OF

PEOPLE IT SORT OF, I REALLY CAME ALIVE.

I OPENED A LOT OF DOORS.

>> YOU FELT PASSIONATE.

>> YES, DEFINITELY, YES, DEFINITELY KICK STARTED SOMETHING IN ME.

>> Stephen: PASSION ENOUGH TO CATER.

>> THAT'S RIGHT, THAT'S RIGHT.

BECAUSE I DID NOT THINK THAT I COULD PLAY THAT PART AT ALL.

>> Stephen: I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT MY ACTING CAREER.

I ACTUALLY HAVE CATERED.

>> THAT'S SWEET.

>> Jon: THAT IS THE EXTENT OF MY ACTING CAREER.

>> NICE.

>> Jon: IT WAS A TERRIFIC PERFORMANCE AND THEY GET A LOT OUT OF EVERYBODY IN THAT THING.

YOU FEEL THAT PERIOD AND YOU FEEL THE MOMENT.
