Kristen Stewart & Rob Pattinson Share a Kiss in Cannes

Originally posted 05/24/2012 11:10AM

When in Rome ... or rather, Cannes.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson absorbed the romance of the French Riviera on Wednesday, sharing a kiss after a screening of Stewart's film On the Road at the Cannes Film Festival.

Finding time for a private moment together, Stewart, 22, leaned in to Pattinson, 26, and he kissed her forehead.

On the Road is an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's 1950s novel, and Stewart plays the main character Dean Moriarty's wife Marylou.

Asked Wednesday at a Cannes Film Festival press conference about a particularly raw scene in which she – playing a character based on the freewheeling, sexually adventurous first wife of Kerouac's legendary friend, Neal Cassady – appears topless while sitting in a car seat between costars Sam Riley (in the Kerouac role) and Garrett Hedlund (in Cassady's), Stewart said she "wanted to do it."

"I love pushing. I love scaring myself," said Stewart about her portrayal of Marylou, who is based on Luanne Henderson. (Henderson, along with Kerouac, Cassady, Allen Ginsberg and Cassady's second wife, Carolyn, were among the most iconic members of the Beat Generation.) "I've always wanted to get as close to an experience as I could."
