In the interview, Kristen opened up about why she chose to play Snow White in the new movie.
“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.” Kristen explained. “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 also chatted about her co-star Charlize, saying “She is unlike anyone I’ve ever encountered. She is one of those people who walks into a room and everyone knows it.”
“She’s a fucking movie star. It’s funny, too, because she always says, “I’m not really a performer.” But I’m like, “Yeah, not at all.” She’s an actor and a performer.”
Charlize opened up about adopting baby Jackson. “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.”
