Kristen Stewart Says Director Fling Did Not Cost Her ‘The Huntsman’ Prequel Gig
Kristen Stewart insists her fling with director Rupert Sanders was not the reason for her Snow White prequel no-show.
The actress torpedoed her romance with boyfriend Robert Pattinson and helped wreck Sanders’ marriage when she was photographed getting close to her Snow White & The Huntsman filmmaker after the blockbuster wrapped.
She and Pattinson attempted to make a go of their romance, and Sanders tried to patch up his relationship with model Liberty Ross – but both fell apart.
And when Stewart wasn’t part of the film’s new prequel, some gossips suggested her fling with the director had cost her a role.
The Twilight star tells The Hollywood Reporter that simply isn’t the case.
“I read a few scripts (and) none of them were good,” she said. “None of them were greenlight-able.”
“I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go.”
“It wasn’t a situation where I got kicked off a movie because I got in trouble,” she added. “We had been in talks months after that about making something work, and it never came together.”
Asked why she thought her co-stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth came back for the latest film, Stewart said, “Maybe Chris was more into it. I actually don’t f**king know.”
It appears she may have been right to pass on the film – The Huntsman: Winter’s War hit cinemas last month to lacklustre reviews. It opened with a disappointing $20.1 million debut weekend.
