Kristen hated high school and got her GED with a tutor. She did not fit in as per her own words. She is not concerned with how she comes off, following the rules, conducting herself in typical lady like fashion or what a bad role model she is. I can see why the director would say she is an outsider. It is not clear why he would include Sam and Garrett in that comment. Garrett Hedlund graduated high school early by working extra hard and doubling up credits. He came to Hollywood at 18 and has a reputation for being a really nice and humble guy. He has always kept his private life private but but it could be because he just never got serious with anyone. . He is really a natural actor that has taken the time to learn from Brad Pitt, Jeff Bridges, Mark Wahlberg, Tim McGraw & Gwyneth Paltrow. He steals every scene in Country Strong. Not much is known about Sam Riely except he is friends with Rob Pattinson and some say he is married but lives with anothe woman and his wife as well. Fairly unconventional.
On the Road's provocative ideas that
defined the novel " casual Sex and drug use and a rejection of
materialism " are unlikely to raise eyebrows with todays multiplex
audience. In other words, today's society is jaded and into the same things now that were taboo when the book was written.
