Kristen Stewart has claimed that playing Joan Jett in The Runaways was her "coolest job".

The actress, who stars alongside Dakota Fanning in the movie, told Spin.com that she was nervous about meeting Jett.

"I was terrified," she said. "I was going, 'Oh my God, why the f**k am I here?' Not like I shouldn't be, but just, 'How is this happening?'"

She continued: "This was the coolest job I'd had - it was something different during a long stint of something very much the same."

Stewart added that she loved the opportunity to play a different character from the one she portrays in Twilight.

"I knew I needed to cut off Bella's long hair," she said. "I needed to be able to throw my head around and feel the sweat dripping."
