Was Kristen Stewart kicked off from the “Snow White” prequel because of her affair with Rupert Sanders? Stewart opened up about her absence from the movie and the reasons in a recent interview.
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” was a prequel to “Snow White and The Huntsman.” While Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron reprised their roles in the franchise, Stewart was noticeably absent. “I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go. Maybe Chris was more into it. I actually don’t f–king know,” said Stewart.
In a recent interview with Variety, Stewart elaborated that her affair with the “Snow White” director had nothing to do with the studio’s casting decision. “It wasn’t a situation where I got kicked off a movie because I got in trouble,” she said. “We had been in talks months after that about making something work, and it never came together,” she added.
Stewart explained that she came to know about the movie in a press release. However, the studio did try to reach the actress for a cameo which she politely declined. “I might just leave that be. I was really into that,” she said. According to Us Weekly, Stewart read a couple of scripts but she did not like any of them. “I read a few scripts,” said Stewart. “None of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able,” she added.
Kristen Stewart is now ready with two of her movies that will be screened at Cannes. First is Woody Allen’s “Café Society” and the second is Olivier Assayas’ “Personal Shopper.”
Well, everything happens for the best. “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” proved to be financially as well as critically disappointing for Universal, states AV Club. It opened only with AU$ 27.19 million (US$20 million). As against this, “Snow White and The Huntsman” had clocked in thrice more on the opening weekend itself.
Stewart smirked. “So now I’m like … ‘Thank God.’”
