in Movies

Kristen Stewart may be a big star but landing among the lead parts in Woody Allen's next project didn't come easily for her. 

The star opened up about her audition for the as-yet-untitled project during an appearance on Monday's Live with Kelly and Michael, telling host Michael Strahan, "I hadn't been that exceptionally nervous in a while." 

That said, she appeared to find the casting process refreshing. 

"It feels good to prove yourself, because it's weird when people just hand you roles and you're like, 'You've never even met me, you could hate me!' " she included. 

"[When I audition] then I'm like, 'Okay, I'm letting you know I can do this and now I've proven it and we're on.' " 

Stewart and the film's other stars, like Blake Lively, Corey Stoll, Bruce Willis and Jesse Eisenberg, have all been sworn to secrecy concerning the plot of the director's 2016 project, which is currently still in preproduction. 

The Twilight star also told the hosts about her current movie with Eisenberg, American Ultra, joking which she and her costar are "weirdos" but not "insane crazy actors."
