Until now, Kristen Stewart has stayed mum about why she didn’t return for ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’ — the prequel to her 2012 film. However, in a brand new interview she claims that it did not have to do with the affair she had during the original movie with director, Rupert Sanders.
While Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron both returned to this years The Huntsman: Winter’s War, Kristen Stewart‘s Snow White was completely missing. Granted, it’s a prequel but many speculated that her relationship with Rupert Sanders, the director of the original who she infamously had an affa with, caused her to lose her job. Now, she’s saying she didn’t actually lose it — she passed.
“It wasn’t a situation where I got kicked off a movie because I got in trouble,” Kristen told our sister publication, Variety, in this month’s cover story. “We had been in talks months after that about making something work, and it never came together.” She also added that she had “read a few scripts” but “none of them were good.” Yikes!”
None of them were greenlight-able, and I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go,” she said.
“Maybe Chris was more into it. I actually don’t f—ing know.”
Oddly enough, she found out about the movie officially happening via a press release. “I was like, ‘OK, cool!’ We hadn’t spoken in a long time, but I didn’t know we had broken up,” she said, adding that the studio did later reach out to ask her if she’d want to do a cameo. She told them, “I might just leave that be. I was really into that, but…” She also said after seeing the movie bomb in the box office ($20 million, though!), she had this to say: “Now I’m like… ‘Thank God.'”
So HollywoodLifers, do you think she really didn’t fired? Let us know.
