"I am fighting the most evil mother fu--kers," Kristen Stewart tells Box Office Magazine in an interview for her upcoming movie "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" about her character 'Snow White'. In this 30 minute interview as indicated by Amy Nicholson (interviewer) in a tweet, Stewart spoke about 'Snow White and the Huntsman'. Nicholson also stated that it was a telephone interview "at the end of a long SNOW WHITE shooting day in London."
Nicholson posted her SWATH question where Stewart talks about the angst of the 'Snow White' character who has to fight but does not like hurting things:
You're shooting Snow White and the Huntsman right now which imagines Snow White as this warrior princess. What's her fighting style like?
Not to trivialize it at all, but it's hard to play an action hero who is also the most compassionate person on earth. You can't hate. You epitomize bleeding hearts, so how the f--k do you do an action movie like that? She is sort of the last shred of hope for her land. She has this ethereal, spiritual connection to her people—she really feels things-and so it's like we don't really feel empathy. I've had some f--king eye-opening experiences on this movie. I think that to truly care for something isn't just putting yourself in that situation aesthetically and then going, "Oh my god, I feel so bad for them." It's truly not thinking of yourself at all. The way that you fight is that you must take out anything that hurt your people. Basically, I'm fighting evil—I'm fighting the most evil motherf--kers-and it's fine that they're being killed. It's anguish. It's literally f--king anguish. She takes absolutely no pleasure in ever hurting anything. I'm exhausted right now and I was thinking, "The fight stuff is coming up, maybe that won't be so bad." And then I realized that they're probably going to be my most emotional scenes because I'm killing people and I'm Snow White. It's a really f--king cool way to approach a movie where so many people die. Not that I'm criticizing violent movies—I love them, generally—but it is nice to do it this way.
