“Everyone asks about the nude scenes in ‘On The Road’, but I also had to dance, and dancing is harder than being naked. My character, Marylou, is so exuberant, and I had five minutes to do something that showed she was sort of like the craziest motherfucker around. In the book, it says, ‘Dean takes Marylou and they do a love dance and no one can take their eyes off them’, it’s one sentence. And I was mad intimidated by it. We did the dance four times to the song ‘Salt Peanuts’. By the end, I was as red as a fire truck. I was holding onto Garrett because I was going to fall over. I almost passed out every single time.”
There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.
“I love Marylou. As a character she’s very vivid, she jumps right off the page and smacks you in the face with her tongue. She never sold herself, that was one thing about her that was really very different from everybody involved in that movement. She wasn’t rebelling against anything, she was so just being herself. It wasn’t her priority to be a part of something that was moving other people; it was just about the people that she loved. She’s so completely human, she never made herself a commodity. I think if you were to choose one character that embodied the spirit of this book, it was her.” - Kristen Stewart
the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved
