Washington, May 21: Kristen Stewart admits she loved playing Snow White though she “hates” girl power films.
The 22-year-old actress has revealed that she enjoys portraying physically and mentally strong characters and was excited to play Snow White in her latest movie ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ because her alter-ego has “gusto and kicks ass”.
“I hate girl power movies, when the people you’re rooting for are not girls. That’s what I was attracted to,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling BANG Showbiz.
“I’ve always wanted to find a role where I can challenge myself physically, I really like getting the opportunity to hurt myself for the job but what I loved was that Snow White is someone who has the gusto and kicks ass but she’s not a dude.
“She remains, steady. I’m not built to be physically strong, you have to outsmart someone, you have to be physically and mentally quicker, you have to have a strong heart,” she said.
Stewart – who stars as vampire Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight Saga’ franchise – was keen to play Snow White to “push” herself and she particularly enjoyed playing the character when she overcame fears within the storyline.
“Nothing is that simple. Every time Snow White has to do something and not be crippled by fear I’m into that, one of the things I wanted to do was see how far I could push myself.
“The reason they hire these big huge burly dudes to work on these movies is because it’s hard,” she added. (ANI)
