Kristen Stewart talks about ‘Breaking Dawn’ and other projects
You know this character so well, what’s it like to take him through this big change when she becomes a vampire herself?
I felt good. It was really weird. It was a long process of two films at the same time, as if they are one. You shoot, of course, out of order and you keep going back and forth between speakers, vampires and dead human Bella. There are so many different versions of Bella in this area, it’s crazy. It was a strange experience walking on the set the first time I played a scene as a vampire because I looked all around me do all the time. I sound so lame, but vampire Bella is really my favorite character, she is very representative of a matriarch.
She is very intuitive about a psychic level and no one ever recognizes, which is interesting. Maybe it says something about Stephenie she does not get the respect of all his f..king amazing qualities. And it is also one of the things that appealed to me, so it’s not a strike at the, it’s something I like about it. And I think it’s nice to finally see her get what she wants. This is probably the best thing, though it seems simple and indulgent, which is why the F – king thing is criticized all the time. It’s nice to see people be happy. And she really, if I played it right is born to be where she is.
You’re shooting Snow White and the Huntsman right now imagine that Snow White as the warrior princess. What is his fighting style perfect?
Not to trivialize everything, but it’s hard to play an action hero, who is also the most compassionate person on earth. You can not hate. You embody bleeding hearts, so how the F..k you’re doing an action film like this? It is sort of the last shred of hope for his country. It has this ethereal, spiritual connection to his people, she feels a real difference and it’s like we do not really empathize. I had some of – king eye-opening experience on this film. I think that to really take care of something is not right to put you in this aesthetically and then going, “Oh my god, I feel so bad for them.”
It’s really not to think of yourself at all. The way you fight, then you must buy something that you hurt people. Basically, I am fighting against evil, and I fight against the worst motherf..kers-and that’s fine that they are being killed. It’s anxiety. It is literally f..king’s anxiety. It takes absolutely no pleasure in hurting anything. I’m exhausted right now and I thought: “The fight is of things to come, maybe that will not be so bad.” And then I realized that they will probably be my most emotional scenes because I’m killing people and I’m Snow White. This is a very f..king cool way to approach a film where so many people die. Not that I am critical of violent movies, I love them, in general, but it’s nice to do it that way.
