Kristen Stewart is at Cannes ahead of the premiere of Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society” this week to launch the festival. Outside of the “Twilight” franchise, one of Stewart’s most famous roles was that of Snow White in Rupert Sanders’ “Snow White and the Huntsman” in 2012.
Stewart didn’t return for the prequel “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” that opened last month, likely a good thing as that film bombed with critics and at the box office. Speaking with Variety this week, Stewart explained why she wasn’t involved:
“I read a few scripts, none of them were good. None of them were greenlight-able. And 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—ing know.
It wasn’t a situation where I got kicked off a movie because I got in trouble. We had been in talks months after that about making something work, and it never came together.”
Stewart found out about the sequel in a press release and confirmed that the studio did reach out to ask if she would appear in a cameo. She passed on that too: “I might just leave that be. I was really into that, but …so now I’m like… ‘Thank God.'”
