Gearing up for the première of their new movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’, actresses Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron grace the cover of Interview magazine June/July 2012. The beautiful duo displays a mysterious gothic-glam style in front of Mikael Jansson’s camera lens. The stars also open up to the magazine about the upcoming movie, personal life and the movie industry, so check out snippets of their interview and snaps of their stylish spread, next!
The fairytale inspired movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ has attracted a generous amount of attention due to its modern interpretation and as far as the character she plays in the new movie which premiers June 1st, Kristen Stewart reveals to Interview that:
“There’s so much that Snow White has been deprived of in terms of having the proper time to really develop and hone who she is. She’s put in jail at the beginning of her life, so she’s a stunted person. She has a really idealized concept of what the world is, and how people should live, and how wonderful things all can be, and there is this debilitating isolation that she feels because she has been locked away in a little cell for seven years. And I can kind of relate to that. There is something . . . It’s not the reason that I wanted to do the movie, but the fans and people who loved Twilight, they do put you on this sort of different plane where you’re not real.”
Kristen, who kick-started her career in the movie ‘Panic Room’ at age 10, says that she loved playing the fictional character although it was at certain times quite difficult to play due to the supernatural energy that is quite difficult to understand since it’s all fantasy. She tells the magazine that:
“The tricky thing is that you can’t have Snow White’s effect on people. I can’t have this supernatural light that sort of instantly affects those around me. There were things that I needed to believe, even though it was hard at times. But I did because the fantasy part of it was written well. You know how you meet people in life sometimes where you go, “Wow, you’ve got this energy . . .” This is just sort of a heightened version of that.”
This is the first time Charlize and Kristen have starred in a movie together and it appears the two had a blast while filming as Kristen revealed in the interview that Charlize is “unlike anyone I’ve ever encountered”. Charlize plays the character of Queen Ravenna, a dark, evil character that is somehow quite different from the roles we’re used to seeing Charlize play. Apparently, this is exactly what drew Charlize to the role as she tells Interview that:
“I saw a great challenge in taking something that was so iconic and turning it upside down and shaking it up a little bit, which I’d never done. And then I also saw a character that was such an emotional wreck and has never truly been explored in that way.”
As far as her personal life goes, Ms. Theron, who recently adopted a baby boy, Jackson, reveals that she’s always wanted children and she always knew she wanted to adopt. She tells Interview that:
“You can’t really be too calculated about everything in life. I think I’ve gone through my life with the understanding that you’ve got to let go and you can’t think that you’re going to control your destiny … That’s why I’ve never had a five-year plan. I always knew that I wanted to have children. It wasn’t kind of something that I discovered later. I also never felt the biological clock ticking because I think I always knew that I wanted to adopt. It never meant that I didn’t want to have my own children—I always felt that if I were in the right circumstances then I would totally have my own children.”
