In honor of Kristen Stewart‘s role as Marylou in On the Road, Ben Lyons and Josh Horowitz from MTV News talk about the multiple non-Twilight films she has starred in over the years including Adventureland, Welcome to the Rileys, The Runaways and Snow White and the Huntsman.
Things are really heating up for the summer movie season. We’ve got the release of ”Marvel’s The Avengers” this week, ”Battleship” soon after and the very buzz-worthy action adventure ”Snow White and the Huntsman”arrives June 1, marking the debut of Kristen Stewart as an action star.
MTV News is very proud to announce that we will be offering fans an exclusive first look at the film via “MTV First: Snow White and the Huntsman” on Tuesday, May 8. Stewart and co-stars Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin will be live on MTV’s airwaves at 7:56 p.m. ET to premiere the exclusive clip, after which they will stick around for a Q&A on MTV.com hosted by MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. Fans can get in on the action by submitting their reactions to the clip in the comments section or on Twitter (using @MTVNews, hashtag #MTVFirst). During “MTV First,” the four stars will also answer your Twitter questions and dish on the very latest news.
In order to help tide you over until the big reveal next week, here’s a little interview snippet from Stewart in which she discusses her preparation for mastering the English accent required for her role as the titular Snow White.
“I worked on it for a while, so I was really lucky, I didn’t have to jump right in,” Stewart said of her ample pre-production time. “I would have been terrified [if I had to jump in], so I felt really confident with it when I went into it. I didn’t feel like I was attached to specific lines and stuff, which I would kill myself if I felt that I had to know exactly what I was going to say.”
Stewart has received rave reviews for her performance from director Rupert Sanders.
“Kristen is a very driven, visceral, intuitive actress. From a director’s point of view, it’s great to get into her headspace,” Sanders told MTV News. “We did a lot of work together on the script and character, and she really helped inform me how that character was feeling, which really helped my process getting the character onscreen. Kristen was doing a lot of her stunt work, she was riding horses, she was jumping from high precipices into freezing cold water, she was fighting dwarves — she’s gung-ho.”

MTV’s Larry Carrol spills on Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s instant chemistry on the Twilight set!
“Yeah, the chemistry was undeniable. I remember each had a book on their chairs, next to each other. RPattz read Vonnegut. I was on set for 2 full days, and the only time they weren’t together was when I did my 1-on-1 with Rob. They were VERY into building chemistry, barely knew each other then. To play such intimate characters for several movies .they knew they had a lot of work to do. Both of them take acting very seriously, even then when relatively young. They’d share books watch movies together, hit local clubs with other actors, etc. As soon as Catherine called “Cut!” they’d almost always head off together.
I’ve interviewed each dozens of times, most recently for XBox at the BD1 premiere. So glad they’ve come so far. Would be very cool, since I unearthed that tidbit. But I know a lot of people whose heads would explode from the sexiness! Just KStew there, missed Rob. If you have XBox, keep your eye on the movie coverage there – I produce much of that yumminess. Was a lot easier in those day. I was the only one who cared. I remember explaining to other reporters what “Twilight” was… EW spelled Stephenie’s name wrong, on set a lot of people thought the film would go straight-to-video. When I asked to visit the set….they were kinda shocked. Said “how many days do you want to come up for?” Gave me full access, no embargo. That’s extremely rare. I’d say they were equal. Although KStew definitely seemed to take the lead most of the time. She was the more experienced actor.”
