(NEW YORK) — Kristen Stewart says her experience with the Twilight saga gave her insight in playing Snow White in the new movie Snow White and the Huntsman.
Stewart tells the June issue Interview magazine her character feels a “debilitating isolation” because she’s been locked away in a little cell for seven years, and the 22-year-old actress says she could definitely “relate to that.” Stewart tells the magazine, “The fans and people who loved Twilight, they do put you on this sort of different plane where you’re not real. It’s like you don’t exist.”
Snow White and the Huntsman also stars Charlize Theron as the evil Queen Ravenna. Stewart says she only had a few shooting days with Theron, but she enjoyed discovering they share the same approach to acting. Stewart tells Interview, “We only had a few days together but we both are absolutely willing to hurt ourselves to do what it takes to get the right feeling, and not all actors are like that.” Stewart adds, “Most actors like to be really comfy.”
Theron tells Interview she can relate to her character’s obsession with her looks and mortality, but turning to surgery to keep her youthful appearance is not an option for her right now. “I can’t foresee myself ever going under the knife, but then again, I’m only in my mid-thirties. Maybe it’s different when you’re in your mid-sixties. So I don’t want to make statements about where I’m gonna be in 30 years,” says Theron.
Snow White and the Huntsman opens nationwide this Friday.
