I think we can all agree that Kristen Stewart deserves a stiff drink after the relentless promotion she’s done for “Snow White and the Huntsman,” and that’s precisely what she had after a recent Los Angeles screening of the film.
Attending a private reception at Westwood’s Napa Valley Grille on Tuesday, Stewart enjoyed a cocktail the restaurant created in tribute to the film, which also stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth.
The Poison Apple, made with bourbon, was served to Stewart and a group of about 20 friends and co-workers — including her on-screen prince, Sam Claflin (recipe below).
Earlier at the screening, Stewart waxed to The Times about her promotional blitz for the dark retelling of the classic fairy tale.
“I was sort of lunging back and forth over this boundary line,” she said of mitigating personal questions. “Now that I know where that is, everything makes lots of sense to me. Sometimes if people don’t ask you certain questions, you don’t think of things. It’s really kind of valuable as well. It can be fun.”
So can drinking, when you’re of age. Stewart, by the by, is 22.

Move over, Robert Pattinson—Charlize Theron is taking your place!
No, Kristen Stewart is not replacing her real-life Twilight boyfriend with her Snow White and the Huntsman costar, but…
K. Stew, 22, really digs Ms. Theron, 36.
“I want to stand on my tippy toes when I’m around her,” Stewart told me the other day when she and SWATH costar Sam Claflin appeared at the MTV Sneak Peek of their new fairy-tale action flick. “She’s mad intimidating. Most people would make you feel really bad about yourself when you’re intimidated by them, but I feel so great around.”
Claflin gushed, “She makes you step up your game.”
Theron is also, well, super cool.
“She’s awesome,” Stewart said. “And she’s hilarious—she’s so fast and quick.”
Even with all this lovin’, Stewart and Claflin aren’t going to be babysitting for the new mom anytime soon.
“I don’t think she should trust either of us,” Stewart said.
Claflin cracked, “I don’t think she’d trust us with the kid or even her dogs.”
When MTV News caught up with “Twilight” producer Wyck Godfrey recently to discuss Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s chances of another Best Kiss win at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday (June 3), he revealed that he and Pattinson might be cooking up some post-“Breaking Dawn – Part 2″ work plans, in the form of a big-screen adaptation of a crime thriller.
“There’s a book called “The Professionals,” which is a new crime thriller that Rob has read and really likes,” Godfrey said of Owen Laukkanen’s well-received debut novel. “We’re just starting to look at a writer [to adapt it]. It’s kind of a ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ for today, and he would be fantastic in the role. It’s in the early days; we’ll see.”
A modern-day version of “Bonnie and Clyde” sounds gritty and violent no matter which way you look at it. We asked Godfrey if he sees this potential big-screen crime thriller as a PG-13- or R-rated film for Pattinson.
“Possibly R,” he said. “[Rob’s] an adult now.”
