"So Bravehearty." That's how Kristen Stewart described her rousing "Snow White and the Huntsman" speech when we caught up with the actress in London last month. She revealed that director Ruper Sanders saved it for the very last day, and now she told us why.
During MTV's second annual Sneak Peek Week, co-stars Stewart and Sam Claflin stopped by to bring us an exclusive look at their film and answer fan questions. When one audience member asked the "Twilight" actress what scene was the hardest for her to shoot she recalled the speech, saying she wasn't quite prepared to recite it early on during production.
"It kept getting kicked to the end of the schedule," she said. "It was like, 'I'm so not ready for that. Just gonna put that off a little longer.' Every single day we were re-writing it. I still need to frame that thing, laminate it somehow and give it to Rupert. The different renditions of it, it's disintegrating."
While Stewart said she didn't do anything to psych herself up for the call to arms, Claflin chimed in to give credit to the actress for her wardrobe—or lack thereof—during the scene.
"The girl was wearing no shoes on one of the coldest days in English history. And was wearing like a nightie. I don't know how she did it, honestly—man power, woman power, girl power," he said with a laugh. "She did a smashing job on that."
