Kristen Stewart goes topless in her latest film, "On The Road" (a big screen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's famed book), but the actress says she wasn't nervous about the on-screen nudity, thanks to director Walter Salles.

"Once we got to set, it was so about just breathing and letting it happen. He put so much trust in us," she said of her director. "So it was like, 'OK, so I have to take my clothes off?' It's so not a big [deal]."

"On The Road" is slated to hit theaters on December 21.
