VIVA-PRESS INTERVIEWS STEWART
A new print interview from Viva-Press was released. Below are some excerpts from the interview where she discuses her character and working with Charlize and Chris.
Q: Kristen, what was your approach to the very tough Snow White that this film saw you play?
"She needed to develop a warrior-like mentality and at the same time she was a very caring, compassionate young woman. We wanted to remain true to the essence of the story where Snow White represents the good side of humanity and its best ideals. yet she also has to engage in violence in order to fight very evil forces. That was our way of creating a new kind of fairytale that is going to engage people and take the audience on a different kind of journey."
Q: Was the presence of Charlize Theron one of the reasons you wanted to be part of this project?
"Yes. I've always been a huge admirer of Charlize. She was already signed to the film before either Chris or myself and after reading the script and knowing that she was playing in it, I knew I had to be part of it."
"It's really an incredible opportunity to work with someone you think is so brilliant and whose work you've followed and respected so much. Charlize was basically the reason I wanted to make this film."
Q: What makes Snow White special in your eyes?
"Snow White has a unique ability to see the true essence of others. Her real beauty is the way she can see the world and believe in humanity despite the violence and evil that surrounds her. She has incredible intuition that is one of her greatest gifts and so she sees The Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) for who he really is. I also enjoyed working with Chris because he had a way of bringing new elements to the scenes we were doing and I was able to play off of that and that was really exiting for me as an actress. We surprised each other a lot and I thrive on that way of working together. Chris was also a lot of fun to be around."
