SCANS: SWATH Featured in SFX Mag, May Issue
Enter Snow White and the Huntsman, a dark fantasy that gets right to the bloody, battered heart of the much-loved story of Snow White and her evil stepmother, smothers it in dirt and shoves a battered and dented word in its hands. “She’s definitely a born leader,” says Twilight mega-star Kristen Stewart, who plays Snow White, stepdaughter of the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron). “I mean, it’s literally pumping through those veins, but it’s been taken from her. She was put away when she was seven years old and her mother and her father were killed basically right in front of her. And we’re not doing the version of a fairytale that wouldn’t deal with all of those things, where you just sort of skim over all those things. It’s like all of these things are actually really important to the characters. She bleeds for her land and her people, and that’s just such a cool concept for me because it’s other people caring about people. I mean, she’s strong. She can kick ass. I think she genuinely lacks that innate fear of death that we all have. She’s got serious, fierce survival, not skills but insights. But she isn’t afraid of anything.”

EW Talks Kristen & OTR

It may seem a strange thing, the Beat Generation mixing with the Twilight generation, but without Kristen Stewart signing on to co-star as the teenage bride Marylou, this version of the story directed by Walter Salles (The Motorcycle Diaries) may not have happened either.

Stewart was a major advocate for the movie, and before haters of the sparkly-vampire movies get up in arms, it’s worth remembering the impressive indie filmmaking career she has built for herself beyond Bella Swan, playing a not-quite-burned-out young prostitute in Welcome to the Rileys, a spot-on Joan Jett in The Runaways, and the girl of your 1980s dreams in Adventureland.

The people who interest her seem to be the mad ones, too.

Here’s hoping this trip On the Road is worth taking.


Larry Carrol (from MTV) Talks Robsten’s Instant Chemistry

Larry Carrol from MTV recalls how it was like to interview Rob and Kristen on the set of Twilight (remember TWILIGHT TUESDAYS?!):


“Yeah, the chemistry was undeniable. I remember each had a book on their chairs, next to each other. RPattz read Vonnegut. I was on set for 2 full days, and the only time they weren’t together was when I did my 1-on-1 with Rob. They were VERY into building chemistry, barely knew each other then. To play such intimate characters for several movies .they knew they had a lot of work to do. Both of them take acting very seriously, even then when relatively young. They’d share books watch movies together, hit local clubs with other actors, etc. As soon as Catherine called “Cut!” they’d almost always head off together. 

I’ve interviewed each dozens of times, most recently for XBox at the BD1 premiere. So glad they’ve come so far. Would be very cool, since I unearthed that tidbit. But I know a lot of people whose heads would explode from the sexiness! Just KStew there, missed Rob. If you have XBox, keep your eye on the movie coverage there – I produce much of that yumminess.  

Was a lot easier in those day. I was the only one who cared. I remember explaining to other reporters what “Twilight” was… EW spelled Stephenie’s name wrong, on set a lot of people thought the film would go straight-to-video. When I asked to visit the set….they were kinda shocked. Said “how many days do you want to come up for?” Gave me full access, no embargo. That’s extremely rare. I’d say they were equal. Although KStew definitely seemed to take the lead most of the time. She was the more experienced actor.”
