Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart promote ‘Snow White & the Huntsman’ at WonderCon! (BONUS: New extended trailer!)
Here are some new pictures from WonderCon, which took place over the weekend. Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart were on hand to promote their new movie, ‘Snow White & the Huntsman’.
At the conference, Kristen revealed her love for playing darker characters, who swear and everything. She admitted they’re one reason why she picks the darker roles, “It’s because I’m a bitch,” she said.
Her comment was the highlight of a rather fruity question and answer session about the film at the WonderCon convention in Anaheim. But she also said she was excited about the film’s more mature characterisation of the familiar fairy tale favourite, saying: ‘Everything I wanted Snow White to be is there and that’s really rare. And the Los Angeles born star said she had to put herself through the mill to play the aggressive militaristic imagining of Snow White.
She said: ‘I hurt myself a lot. I got to jump off cliffs and ride horses. And that terrified me. I didn’t like that.’
Kristen’s co-star Charlize Theron, 36, was also in foulmouthed form as they tried to live up to the movie’s more adult demographic.
Explaining why she wanted to play the Evil Queen, she said: ‘Everyone has an idea of her. And there’s something nice about f***ing with that idea.’
When told that she plays “evil” really well, Charlize replied: “That’s because I’m a bitch….Picasso had his blue period, and this is my bitch period.”
It was a big week for Charlize, for as well as attending WonderCon, she also revealed she had adopted a baby boy called Jackson, who is now four-months-old. The South African stunner told Ryan Searest that ‘everyone has been so lovely’, ‘nice’ and ‘amazing,’ on his radio show last week.
I’m in love with Charlize these days. I watched “Young Adult” TWICE this weekend, and that’s after I saw it in the theater! I can’t wait to see this movie, either. I think the movie looks really interesting, and has the potential to be really good.
Charlize and Kristen also stopped by the Today Show this morning to discuss their new movie. ”‘Dark’ is a dangerous word, maybe,” Theron said of the feel of the film. “I think it’s just a retelling that feels a little more grounded in reality. And yes it has darker tones to it, but I think more than that, it’s just a great adventure — a great epic-scale film.”
For Stewart, the story might not seem as real, but it’s just as compelling.
“You want to join the cause,” she said of her character’s quest. “Considering that it’s a fairy tale based in a very unreal world, that says something about the characters.”

How do the girls feel about two Snow White movies being released so close together? (‘Mirror, Mirror’ starring Julia Roberts hits theaters soon.)
“I think these stories thematically bleed into a lot of stuff that is very relevant,” the Oscar winner explained. “So I’m not shocked that we’re having an outbreak of a lot of a lot of these classic fairy tales being retold…. There’s a way to do them in different worlds. I think that’s what the case is with (“Snow White”). I don’t think Universal would have backed this film the way they have if they thought they we were playing to the same audience as that other one.”
“Snow White and the Huntsman” opens in theaters nationwide June 1.
