Kristen Stewart has never had a problem getting close with her costars. She's been romantically linked with Twilight's Robert Pattinson, is great pals with Taylor Launter and has formed a bond with Dakota Fanning, who stars in The Runaways with her.

"Working this closely with someone, you can't help but really become bonded with them and it really helps when you actually like them and can become really good friends," Stewart said Wednesday during a press day for the movie about the '70s all-girl’s band in which Stewart plays rocker Joan Jett and Fanning, singer Cherie Currie.

"I haven't really done a lot of movies with people close to my own age to have a good friend like that," she said. "So I was excited, and I couldn't have asked for a better person to do it with."

She's revealed a glamorous side recently during London Fashion Week, but PEOPLE.com has a first look at Kristen Stewart channeling her inner rocker – Joan Jett, to be precise – in her upcoming movie, The Runaways.

In the scene, Stewart rocks out in her bedroom after her band, the Runways, breaks up.

The movie, which arrives in theaters on March 19, is a coming of age story about the all-girl rock group. It also stars Dakota Fanning, who plays Cherie Currie.

The actresses premiered the film at the Sundance Film Festival last month, where they cheered on Jett and her band the Blackhearts during a lively concert, even joining them on stage at one point.
