The 20-year-old actress visited several lap dancing bars in New Orleans to research her role in new movie `Welcome to the Rileys` and was astonished by the amount of sexy work she could have accepted.
She said: "Well, I mean, like, doing this movie ... one shocking thing was to find how easy it is to flaunt your sexuality.
"Like, I went to a strip club with the director and the costume designer and it being an odd grouping of people going into a strip club in the middle of the afternoon, I was straight-up offered a job."
Kristen - who plays a teenage runaway who becomes a stripper in the film - was also surprised by the amount of male attention she received when walking through the city in her skimpy costumes.
The screen beauty - who is in a relationship with her `Twilight Saga` co-star Robert Pattinson - explained to MTV News: "Walking around New Orleans wearing the kind of stuff I was wearing literally could be like boom, boom, boom, done. But I would never do that."
