Kristen Stewart: My parents were lax

Kristen Stewart didn't face too many restrictions growing up.

The 22-year-old On the Road actress was raised in Los Angeles under the supervision of her script supervisor mother Jules and her stage manager and television producer father John.

Kristen thinks she benefitted from being raised in an environment with two very liberal parents.

"I had no rules," she told MTV News.

"I wasn't not allowed to watch R-rated movies. I don't even know why."

Kristen began acting at the age of nine.

Her exposure to very adult movies in her youth serve as continuous inspiration for the star.

"I saw Taxi Driver when I was really, really young," Kristen revealed.

"The Shining was one of my favourite movies. When I was really young, Castle Freak scared me-it's funny The Shining didn't. I love that. It's one of my favourite movies."

Kristen's new drama based on Beatnik author Jack Kerouac's novel On the Road, which also stars Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley and Kirsten Dunst, will be released in US theatres next week.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Be practical with your money. Although you're not materialistic, you should have something to show for your hard work. Owning your home will protect you from future economic uncertainty. Keep your eyes open for a cosy property near a body of water. The sight of a pond, lake or river will soothe your fiery energy. A youngster or romantic partner will balk at your decision to move. Don't let an angry outburst deter you from your goal. It's time to establish roots.More
