Kristen Stewart has revealed that she has no problems when it comes to taking on movie roles that require sex scenes.

The ex-Twilight star’s upcoming film Personal Shopper calls for on-screen nudity, but the actress reckons that American performers are prudes when it comes to baring all for their art.

In an interview with W Magazine, Stewart said any reservations she had went away because she was comfortable being directed by French filmmaker Olivier Assayas.

The pair previously worked together on Clouds of Sils Maria, a film which won Stewart a landmark  César Award for her performance.

“The scenes in which I don’t have clothes on or the scenes that seem ‘risqué’ from an outsider’s perspective, there was no acknowledgement on his part,” Stewart said of working with Assayas.

“They’re very f**king French. We are weirder about shit like that. You kind of have to take yourself personally out of it. My personal feeling about that is that I’m really unashamed. […] it’s kind of nice to see someone stripped and bare, totally bare. There’s a strength in it.”

Stewart, who previously shot sex scenes for On the Road, admitted that she was happy with her raunchy sequences in Personal Shopper.

“I’m pretty open. I think people are a little too f**king weird about it, to be honest, but that’s kind of why I was like, ‘I’ll do it,’” she explained.

Personal Shopper is currently screening at the BFI London Film Festival and will be released in UK cinemas next March.
