Kristen Stewart has been busy with her new larger figure for her movie role that required her to gain weight, taking off her trousers and T-shirt to reveal a black bra and white underwear to film a scene for forthcoming film Sils Maria in the Swiss mountains.
The actress joins Juliette Binoche, 49, as she plunged into a chilly lake, who had a greater tolerance for the water temperature than her co-star.
Both stars initially filmed some short dialogue sitting together fully clothed by the lake before taking the plunge. Shooting a movie in the chillier October temperatures clearly had an effect on Kristen – as she emerged from the water, a slew of assistants were on hand with a towel and turban for her dripping wet hair.
Earlier Kristen arrived at the scenic set by bright yellow helicopter – looking low key in her costume – black trousers and zip-up top over a brown T-shirt and brown boots.
Sunglasses and a dark blue baseball cap completed her low key look. Sils Maria sees Juliette play ageing actress Maria Enders who becomes fascinated by a younger star, played by Chloe Grace Moretz.
Reportedly an examination of middle age, the movie follows Maria’s reaction when Moretz’s character signs on to play the very same role which made the older actress famous. Kristen, who has been busy filming the movie for a month, had expressed her trepidation at the prospect of filming with Juliette.
“I play a personal assistant to an actress,” she told the Daily Mail. “It takes two very particular people to have that relationship be functional – one that services the other – because Juliette Binoche is playing the actress that I assist, and she is one of the most powerful women I think I’ve ever seen in film.”
Juliette famously beat veteran star Lauren Bacall to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for The English Patient back in 1997.
“I’m going to try desperately to not be squashed by a woman like that, and it’s not going to be an easy thing,” Kristen added. Sources recently said that the women have become good friends on set.
