Kristen Stewart thinks young Twilight fans should watch her strip in new newest flick, Welcome to the Rileys.

"Most Twilight fans are young girls and this is a really good story for them," the actress, 19, who shows off her butt cheeks and plays a prostitute in the movie, told UsMagazine.com at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.

In the film, Stewart also dances briefly in a strip club and curses frequently, but she still believes it's appropriate for her mostly teen and pre-teen fans.

"It's very much an adolescent story," she says. "At its core, it's a very adolescent story. What she goes through could happen to any girl."

Still, the actress admits that dressing the part was a bit nerve-wracking.

"The first time I put on all the fishnets [was intimidating]," she tells Us of filming, which took place in 2008, just weeks before the vampire flick first opened. "I really tried to own it though. We shot in New Orleans and Twilight hadn't come out yet, so I was able to walk around the streets. I was literally walking down the street in cut-off shorts and a robe that was cinched. I looked like a crackhead!"

Although she assures Us that she never actually strips in the film, she trained with a real-life stripper to hone her skills.

"I didn't want audiences being like, 'This girl doesn't know what she's talking about,' so that was scary," she tells Us. "But it's really not a stripper movie at all. You never see me stripping."
