TWILIGHT Star Kristen Stewart Compares Snow White & Bella

The hot young actress is best known for playing Bella in the wildly popular Twilight franchise, but she is also known for playing Jodie Foster's son in Panic Room. Check out her latest interview about Snow White and the Huntsman.

It was really exciting to knock Thor out!

Actress Kristen Stewart was interviewed by the French magazine "One" for their February/March 2012 edition. Kristen admits that she has compared Snow White and Bella.

"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."

From the trailers we've seen a new version of Snow White, a warrior, someone that seems to have more in common with Xena than a Disney Princess. While Kristen is first to point that her short stature isn't ideal for a warrior, she makes up for it with heart.

"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."

The actress has a very polarizing affect upon the masses, many either love her or hate her. But in this interview she shows quite a wonderful sense of modesty, making it clear she isn't and has never wanted to be a role model. When asked about her influence upon the teenagers of today she had a very grounded response.

"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."

Kristen sounded quite confident that there would be several more Snow White films in her future. She optimistically said, "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."

And what about that infamous moment when Bella cold cocked her co-star Chris Hemsworth (Thor), will we get to see that in the film?

"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."

Snow White & The Huntsman, will open in theaters June 1, 2012.
