This summer Twilight fans will be able to see Kristen Stewart play a different side of herself in the new film Snow White and the Huntsman. The 21-year-old beauty talks about playing Snow White and how she compares to Bella Swan to Teen Vogue.
On what she loves most on playing Snow White: “It’s strange playing a character that you actually could never truly embody. I can’t have Snow White’s affect on people. I can’t actually be completely selfless because nobody is. You can only really play a character like that in a fairytale and play it with an awful load of integrity and not have it just be like a fake character in a movie with other people that do seem real. She’s a very fully formed but very farfetched from the reality that we live in type of person. She also is strong in a very different way than you’d expect like bullying a person in an action-type adventure movie.”
On the similarities and differences between Snow White and Bella Swan: “Bella and Snow White are slightly… they both come to find that they’re leaders. That’s definitely a similarity. They’re different. They’re very, very, very different people. Both of them are sort of a little more intuitive and spiritually, for whatever reason, connected, and their gut is always sort of dead right.”
On wearing costumes with armor: “Somehow she manages to make puffy sleeves look butch. I was really happy that she’s got something heavy on—a bit of armor before she actually finds her own armor. Yeah. The first thing you wanna do is [hits chest and screams]. There’s something kind of dainty about it, too. It fits a woman’s body better, I feel. I don’t know, the guys running around suddenly look like little toys—slightly feminine little toys.”
Snow White and the Huntsman also stars Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Sam Claflin. The release date is June 1.
