Kristen Stewart Shows Another Side, Goes Topless For 'On The Road' (TRAILER)

Robert Pattinson is trying his hardest to transcend his Twilight fame, with a role in period drama Bel Ami, now it seems Kristen Stewart is doing the same - by shedding her clothes to go topless for her new film On The Road.

The trailer shows Stewart letting loose in a very un-Bella fashion, in the drama based on Jack Kerouac's generation-defining novel. There's some dancing, 'cigarette' paper rolling, general smouldering in the direction of Kerouac's character, played by Brit Sam Riley.

The film, also starring Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Garret Hedlund and Steve Buscemi, will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this year.
