Garrett Hedlund has revealed his family laughed through his on-screen nudity in On The Road.
The heartthrob plays free-spirited Dean Moriarty in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac's cult novel, with Twilight's Kristen Stewart as his girlfriend.
Garrett told Collider of his nude scenes: "My mom and sister watched it next to me... There were a lot of laughs. I don't know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know if the laughs were out of nervousness or because the actual text was really that humorous."
The star - who is dating On The Road co-star Kirsten Dunst - went on: "I think the only thing harder for a parent is having to sit down and watch you do a dying scene.
"I've died in three films, and my mom begs me, 'Just tell me you don't die at the end.' To get her to go watch I Am Sam, I told her it was a comedy. She came back with her best friend and pockets full of Kleenex and said, 'You son of a b****!'."
