Garrett Hedlund has revealed his family laughed through his on-screen nudity in On The Road.

The heartthrob plays free-spirited Dean Moriarty in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's cult novel, with Twilight's Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend.

Garrett told Collider of his nude scenes: "My mom and sister watched it next to me... There were a lot of laughs. I don't know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know if the laughs were out of nervousness or because the actual text was really that humorous."

The star - who is dating On The Road co-star Kirsten Dunst - went on: "I think the only thing harder for a parent is having to sit down and watch you do a dying scene.

"I've died in three films, and my mom begs me, 'Just tell me you don't die at the end.' To get her to go watch I Am Sam, I told her it was a comedy. She came back with her best friend and pockets full of Kleenex and said, 'You son of a b****!'."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Take your time over affairs of the heart. If you've recently met someone interesting, enjoy getting to know one another. Don't rush the physical side of your relationship. An impulsive person like you must to protect their heart. That's hard to do after you've made an intense connection. Focus instead on forming a bond based on mutual interests and shared ideas. If your affection keeps growing, then you can pursue a more serious commitment. Until then, keep things light.More
