Kristen's interview with Actu Fnac magazine (France)

Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hensworth recreate the famous fairytale of Grimm Brothers to make a great adventure.

An adaptation very free of the Grimm Brothers’ work, Snow White and the Huntsman was initiated by a screen writer from Disney, Evan Spiliotopoulos, before to be revised by the Iranian Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Bove, Drive). Borrowing from the medieval adventure movie to Braveheart, and heroic fantasy, this ambitious production was given to a newcomer. Indeed, producers Joe Roth and Sam Mercer to whom we owe each Alice in Wonderland and Sixth Sense picked Rupert Sanders. Renowned for his advertisements often experimental dedicated to video games (Halo 3, Call of Duty, Wolverine), Sanders demonstrated an assured visual sense given the logistics and special effects which are in the Snow White and the Huntsman project.

After a very popular cast , the production stopped her choice on the frail heroine of Twilight, Kristen Stewart, most likely to embody the metamorphose of the sweet Snow White in a determined warrior. Face to her, Charlize Theron dove with delight in the part of a fierce Queen for who the beauty and the power are two-edged of a same sword.

Filming in the British studios of Pinewood, the crew of Snow White and the Huntsman took the opportunity to complete its cast with a parade of the best supporting actors of the British cinema (Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Brian Gleeson and much more) able to become the most extravagant in the least amount of replicas.

Snow White and the Huntsman, is the challenge of a new story, of a new director and a new kind of part for Kristen Stewart.

Meeting with Kristen Stewart

Marked by her part of a sweet girl in the Twilight franchise, Kristen Stewart, more warrior and carnassials in Snow White and the Huntsman, remember us her desires as an actress, evokes her admiration without limits for Charlize Theron and pull off the label that the journalist have put on her.

Snow White and the Huntsman is an imposing production and the first movie for Rupert Sanders. Did you worry about that?

I didn’t have any fears because Rupert is really talented. He has many experiences, a real visual sense; he uses the picture in a powerful way. He makes live his characters in a very dangerous universe where the setting is a protagonist on its own. His use of imagery is evocative.

What convinced you to be a part of the project?

Evidently, Rupert and the script were the main reasons. But the presence of Charlize was also for me a true pillar of the project. She was chosen for the part of the Queen before I came and when I learnt that, I knew I wanted to do this movie. I grew up in the admiration of this actress. She is her own reference. It was fantastic and at the same time very intimating.

You were intimated?

Yes, nervous and intimated. I respect enormously Charlize, as an actress and as a woman. And she exceeded what I was expecting. But when you work with such persons, you want to impress them, to give them the best of yourself. Mostly of our scenes are very intense so, before to film them we exchanged our points of view on our own characters. This is what allowed these scenes to be almost like fight scenes, because we gripped well their conflicts. For example, this Queen was raised in the idea that her beauty was important for her power. But Snow White achieves to see through this diabolic character, to discover another form of beauty. Her principal weapon is the light that she carries in herself, her intuition.

After Twilight, you are watching by your fans and by those who want to see you fall. How do you handle this extreme?

You know, I become quickly nervous in the case I have to talk about my job. I don’t like the idea that some people use my shyness to deduce that something don’t interest me. If this is why they don’t like me, I can prove them they are wrong. If they don’t like me for any other reasons, never mind, I will continue to be happy to do what I do.

Kristen is looking happy when Julia meets her in Los Angeles. The Twilight star, who is currently on the screens with Snow White and the Huntsman, is wearing black sneakers, washed out black tight jeans, and a v-necked t-shirt. Her sunglasses are hanging from her neckline and she is holding a plastic waterbottle which she is fiddling with throughout the interview.

J: Your new film is an action-packed, modern version of the classic fairytale Snow White. Did you like
Disney's animated version of Snow White when you were little?

K: Yeah, I liked it but my favorite film when I was little was The Jungle Book.

J: There are a lot of people who think that your life is a fairytale, how do you feel about that?

K: It's weird to talk about my life in that way, but of course, everything that's happening around me is totally amazing! I sort of can't imagine that this is all happening to me and in that sense it's like a real life fairytale! But on the other hand no fairytale is perfect and I don't know what the future will bring. Haha.

 J: Has fame been worth all sacrifices?

K: Yes, definitely, it's been worth all sacrifices for sure. But naturally I sometimes wish I could do something as basic as going to the market and buy soap like regular people.

J: Do you believe in Prince Charming?

K: I don't really know what to think of that, but I suppose it depends on who you are and what kind of life you lead, for a lot of people there is a Mr Right. But then again there are no set rules of what is right or wrong or how things should be, life would be a lot easier if that was the case!

J: Do you think it's possible to live happily ever after, just like in the fairytales?

K: Yeah, it could probably be like that, the girl who gets to experience that is a lucky girl! A lot of people need and strive to find the right one, and if that doesn't happen their life would like be less meaningful or something. Oh, come on! Haha. I really don't know...

J: How should a best friend and a boyfriend be?

K: Honesty! That is something very beautiful and to be able to show honesty in a genuine way, like when you can really see it in someone's eyes.

J: Are you worried about the way media describe you?

K: Naturally I'm worried that journalists will write things that aren't true or that they've twisted something that actually happened or something I said, I don't want to upset anyone. I have pretty good people skills so I'm usually very clear with what I say so there'll be no misunderstandings.

J: Snow White had a great mom as a role model, tell me a little about your own mother!

K: My mom has always given me a lot of affirmation, encouragement, and support. That is something I'm incredibly grateful for. I have friends who doesn't have a close and good relationship with their parents and it affects them a lot which is sad to me. So I'm very fortunate.

J: In your new film you're up against one of your favorites, Charlize Theron, how was that?

K: I was really nervous when I met her the first time and I felt uncomfortable around her. She is an amazing actress and I have huge respect for her. Charlize was one of the main reasons I wanted to do this movie. It was incredibly cool and a total wow-experience to meet her, she is absolutely crazy, and I mean that in a cool way. She is also very funny and witty and she demands quite a lot of attention from the people around her. But when she enters a room something happens and you cannot not look at her.

J: How does it feel to be an idol for so many people?

K: I have experienced that on both sides and I have my own idols whom I've had the opportunity to meet. It's superweird when they're standing right in front of you. Sometimes I've been disappointed when they haven't lived up to my expectations. Other times it's been the other way around. So I can understand how my fans are feeling. When you read about your idols they're being described in a flattering way and you form your own opinion of them which can be really wrong once you meet them in real life.
