Just as we’ll always associates Daniel Radcliffe with Harry Potter, we’ll be associating Kristen Stewart with her role as Bella Swan in the immensely popular Twilight franchise. The final movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is released in November later this year but before we see it, we’ll have Universal Studios’ new movie, Snow White and the Huntsman. The marketing for the movie has been rather great and I am actually very much looking forward to seeing it.
French magazine, “One” or could it be “Un” interviewed Kristen about her role in the new movie and compared the two characters with one another telling us that both characters are like one another as they are ‘Women who take care of their family above all” but she goes onto talk about punching Chris Hemsworth who plays ‘The Huntsman’ in the movie and has recently played Thor. Read on for the more.
What do Bella Swan and Snow White have in common?
“Yes, and they have like a hundred common points. They’re both kind of matriarch. Women who take care of their family above all. I don’t see Snow White as the cartoon’s character who’s stuck in everyone’s head. When I was little, my parents didn’t read me fairytales, I don’t this culture. A lot of people tell me that they can’t wait to see the movie because it’s kind of a rereading of the myth, but it’s all new for me. I didn’t know what to expect when I was reading the script. It was the same for Twilight. I’d never heard any vampire stories.”
How did you find being this action fighting character?
“I don’t have the physical appearance of a fighter, but I identified myself to this young woman’s state of mind, who have huge compassion. Snow White is not capable of hating, but she has to find the strength to fight and this movie opened my eyes. We don’t need to hate our rival to fight him. Snow White is the last hope for the people, she has some kind of spiritual connection with the others. She deeply feels things and forgets to think about her to concentrate on others. When she has to kill, it breaks her heart and I’ve never seen any movie action where the heroine is torn to fight.”
How do you find being a role model to so many people?
“I’m not better than them and I don’t have any particular wisdom to share with them. I don’t like being put on a pedestal. Why is my opinion suddenly important? It doesn’t make sense! I haven’t changed. I’m exactly the same person that I was before Twilight and back then, no one was asking my opinion.”
Will we see you in the role as Snow White again?
“I don’t like to plan my future, but Snow White may turn into a trilogy. If the movie succeeds, we could do a next chapter and so I could be in another franchise. But I’d love to play Snow White again.”
What was it like when you hit Chris Hemsworth?
“It was like in a movie, I’d never hit someone and I realized that I really hit him hard. Me! It was really exciting to knock Thor out! It’s comforting to know that a little girl like me can beat someone as strong as Chris. you’ll see this take in the movie, the director kept it.”
