In the movie based off Jack Kerouac’s classic novel, the actress plays the part of wild child Marylou and acts as wife to protagonist Dean Moriarty (Garrett Hedlund).
Embracing the part of free-thinking Marylou even meant a few topless scenes for the Snow White and the Huntsmen actress and while K-Stew is keeping her usual cool, she’s not surprised to learn about the fuss being made over her racy scenes.
"People are really predictable," she told E! Online. "I completely expected that."
So how did the normally reserved actress feel about baring it all?
"I can't say it's not a little bit jarring, but it's jarring in the right way," she said. "I wanted it to be. I'm really proud of it."
