What do Snow White and the legendary Scottish folk hero William Wallace have in common? If you said, “They don’t wear underpants under their kilts”…well, you might be right, but this is not that kind of blog. The real answer: the ability to deliver a rousing oratory on the battlefield, before leading an army of ragtag revolutionaries to their certain deaths! Or at least, that was part of Kristen Stewart’s duties as a fairytale princess in the soon-to-be-released “Snow White and the Huntsman,” when the titular lady dons her own suit of armor and leads the charge against the evil queen. And when we caught up with her at the film’s world premiere, she made it clear that she took it very, very seriously.
“We saved it until the very last day,” Kristen said of the speech that Snow delivers to her loyal troops before they storm the castle. And it wasn’t an off-the-cuff pep talk, either: “We rewrote it every single day of the shoot. Me and Rupert had it in our back pockets the entire time.”
And although the actress admits that the final version of her speech may not win any awards for clarity, the emotions are right where they should be: “I don’t think it makes a whole lot of sense, but it feels right,” she said. “It’s very up in the air until the very end—the very obvious line. It’s so ’Braveheart’-y, it’s crazy.”
But that’s not all! What else did Kristen have to say about her role in the film, her post-premiere plans, and (of course) boyfriend Robert Pattinson’s reaction to her most recent on-screen efforts? Watch the full video for more deets!
Can you picture KStew Bravehearting it up as Snow White?
