The actress speaks about her parents, acting, the beach scene from Snow White, fashion and her figure.
On her parents and their work: ”Both my parents work in film and television, they used to bring me with them at work, where I saw people of every age acting, even children: I immediately understood that I wanted to do it too.”
O her favorite clothes: “I’d love to wear very feminine clothes, but then, in the everyday life, when I’m in Los Angeles, at home, I’d rather be comfortable. Whereas, when I’m away, like in this case, I pack all kinds of clothes, for the evening as well, because I think that maybe I’ll get a chance to wear them.”
As for the scene from Snow White, Kristen says: ”Oh yes, that’s the scene that sees me finally free after my escape from the Evil Queen. I love that dress, it’s gorgeous! Wearing it helped me to get into character. The weight of the wet fabric, for example, helped me to understand the troubles Snow White has to face to escape from her destiny. The hair is also fundamental for this role. These are extensions, my hair is shorter, it reaches my shoulders, more or less. The color isn’t mine either. Since I’ve been acting, I’ve never had my natural haircolor, which is light brown. But it’s okay, it’s fun to see yourself differently when you look in the mirror.”
On staying fit: ”I’m naturally skinny. We’re all like this in my family, so I don’t have to exercise a lot or go on a diet. I do all the exercise I need on set. Right now, for example, to play Snow White I never stop: I run, jump, fight with swords, horseride… I do all kinds of stuff! You see, I’ve even injured myself! But it’s nothing serious.”
“I’m not one of those actresses that maniacally prepare themselves for a role. On set, I do whatever I need to do, but day after the day. If I have to improvise, I improvise, if I have to learn my lines by heart, I do it. There are certain screenplays which are so beautiful, that they only need to be repeated as they are, without any changes. I live in the moment,” the Breaking Dawn star explains about acting.
In a ceremony held Thursday in Los Angeles, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, stars of the “Twilight” franchise, left their footprints in cement in front of the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
