Kristen Stewart Punched Chris Hemsworth – Kristen Stewart promised a mean Snow White, and we’re pretty confident that punching the God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth, square in the face qualifies.
Though most of the talk on her guest appearance on Thursday night’s “Tonight Show” centered, predictably, on her upcoming new “Twilight” film, and the almost-R rated sex scene that will be discussed ad-nauseam for the next few weeks, Stewart was able to get in a little promotional tease for “Snow White and the Huntsman,” the radical retelling of the old fairytale in which she plays a princess that becomes a warrior.
Chris Hemsworth, best known for his role this summer as “Thor,” plays the Huntsman, sent to kill the princess but instead becoming her mentor in the wild, and while he is a rock of a human being, Stewart explains that she got the best of him with a smack, however accidental the move may have been.
“Girls, if you’ve ever wondered if it works — it works!” she said. “I was supposed to miss him by this much. I basically knocked him right out of his close-up,” the actress said.
She added, “I wasn’t initially jumping at the chance to play Snow White but she is one of the most heavy-handedly sincere, seriously doesn’t let her heart cloud her mind characters,” Stewart said at Comic-Con this summer. “Also, I get to have a sword and stuff.”
‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ is being directed by Rupert Sanders and written by Evan Daugherty. Charlize Theron will play as Ravenna, the Evil Queen. The film is currently in production and is slated for release on June 1, 2012 in the United States. It is the first film in a planned trilogy.
