That's right, the 22-year-old told the panel gathered at a Cannes Film Festival press conference today that she had no qualms about appearing topless—in fact, she says she "wanted to do it."

"I love pushing myself. I love scaring myself. I've always wanted to get as close to an experience as I could," she explained of playing her randy character Marylou. "I'm usually self-conscious about running around town with my face hanging out, but I got to live more in those four weeks than I ever usually do in my life."

Joining K-Stew in her raciest role yet are actors Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst. The feature-film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's 1957 classic novel marks the very first time On the Road has ever hit the big screen—a whopping fifty-five years after its initial publication.

An American release date has yet to be set.
