    Kristen Stewart Strips, Wins Award

    Welcome to the Rileys, Kristen Stewart, James Gandolfini

    Twi-hards, rejoice!

    Kristen Stewart just picked up a big-time acting award over in Europe.

    But was it for her role as Bella Swan in one of the blockbuster Twilight films?

    Nope!

    Stewart was named Best Actress at the Milan International Film Festival for her gritty role in the indie flick Welcome to the Rileys.

    In the film, Stewart plays Mallory, a 16-year-old stripper who gets taken in by a couple (James Gandolfini and Oscar-winner Melissa Leo), whose marriage is on the rocks.

    "I did some pole dancing," Stewart told us back in 2010 when the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. "I got bruises all over my legs. I tore myself up doing it. It sucked.

    "The more I saw it, the more I wanted it," she added. "It was like a weird, self-hating kind of thing."

    Other award winners included Aidan Gillen (of the late great HBO series The Wire) taking home best actor for his performance in Treacle Jr. and Becoming Chaz nabbing best documentary.

    Congratulazioni, everybody!
