Come this summer, Kristen Stewart will be seen in another blockbuster, a loose take on the Snow White fairytale, “Snow White and the Huntsman.” Recent comments she made of how proud she was to be in the film have been taken out of context and twisted. Hollywood Life
and various other celebrity e-zines claim that the interview is proof that Stewart, who can also be seen in “The Twilight Saga” as the critically panned Bella Swan / Cullen, is ashamed of being a part of the franchise.
Moreover, they claim that she's literally dissing the vampire saga that catapulted her to international stardom.
“K-Stew delivers a major diss to Bella while talking about why she loves her upcoming blockbuster – see her shocking words!” the e-zine writes.
“Kristen Stewart loves Twilight, but it seems she has some harsh words for her passive character Bella Swan when comparing her to the thrilling heroine of her upcoming film Snow White and the Huntsman!” adds the same.
However, when you get to the actual comments made by the star, they're nothing like that: not once does she mention “Twilight” or any of her previous roles, she just talks about “Snow White” and what a wonderful character she got to play in it.
Stewart even says she's thrilled that she gets to play a role that is so empowering to women – as we also noted on other occasions, her Snow White is nothing like the fairest of 'em all that we know, she's a warrior.
“It is fairly common to have your story as a woman, even if you’re the protagonist, facilitated by all of the male characters,” were Stewart's exact words.
“It’s so rare to have a female lead character being so proactive. She pushers her own story forward, rather then being affected by all of the outside elements. Hopefully we do that, I’m really proud to be a part of something like that. It’s always good for women to feel empowered,” the actress also said.
As she also put it in an older interview, whatever she does or says, she can't possibly win where the tabs and blogs are concerned. This is perhaps solid proof of that.
