Hot! Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart Cover Interview Magazine June/July Issue

With the scheduled release for Snow White and the Huntsman happening in just a few days promotion for the movie is reaching a fever pitch. Today, for example, HSN is selling a collection inspired by the movie.  And, the stars — Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart — are busy promoting their movie and recently graced the June/July Issue of Interview Magazine.  The cover issue shot  Mikael Jansson obviously features dark, goth almost vampire looks.
Here are some  quotes from the issue.
On her [Stewart] lead role as Snow White: “The tricky thing is that you can’t have Snow White’s effect on people. I can’t have this supernatural light that sort of instantly affects those around me. There were things that I needed to believe, even though it was hard at times. But I did because the fantasy part of it was written well. You know how you meet people in life sometimes where you go, ‘Wow, you’ve got this energy …’ This is just sort of a heightened version of that.
On her co-star, Charlize: “She’s a f**king movie star. It’s funny, too, because she always says, ‘I’m not really a performer.’ But I’m like, ‘Yeah, not at all.’ [laughs] She’s an actor and a performer.”
On the movement in ‘Snow White’:
“I move a lot in this film. It was important for me to get across this sense of urgency. I think it was also that I needed to find out why my character, Queen Ravenna, was going mad. At first, I didn’t really understand why she was evil or losing her mind, but once I understood that it wasn’t just the fact that her mortality relied upon finding Snow White, and that knowing that and not being able to do anything and being stuck in a castle . . . Well, I think that would be maddening for somebody like her. It reminded me a lot of Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining [1980]—that idea that you’re stuck in this place and you can’t escape it, that cabin fever. All that stuff made me realize that Ravenna had to move. So a lot of that is in the movie. She has areas in the castle where she has more energy, like in this “fire” room where her mirror is, so she spends a lot of time there. And the moment that she does become still is really heartbreaking because it’s almost like watching an animal that should never be still, like a wild cat, become still. It just doesn’t feel right.”
On adopting baby Jackson:
“You can’t really be too calculated about everything in life. I think I’ve gone through my life with the understanding that you’ve got to let go and you can’t think that you’re going to control your destiny … That’s why I’ve never had a five-year plan. I always knew that I wanted to have children. It wasn’t kind of something that I discovered later. I also never felt the biological clock ticking because I think I always knew that I wanted to adopt. It never meant that I didn’t want to have my own children—I always felt that if I were in the right circumstances then I would totally have my own children.”
Charlize, on the letter she wrote at 8-years-old about wanting to adopt: “I think back then it was more like I wanted to adopt a baby to be my sibling, but even at that age, I had this awareness of adoption, so this wasn’t a last-minute thought. It was something that was always under my skin, that I knew would be a part of my life, and, to be honest with you, when I decided to start filing, it was very clear. It was like I knew that this was exactly what it needed to be. So then you go through the process, and it’s tough. It’s not the easiest process—and then again, I’ve never liked things too easy in life. But it emotionally knocks you out. It’s a really difficult thing to experience, but I never once faltered and thought that I didn’t want to go through with it. You kind of go through situations that don’t work out, and then all of a sudden you have this baby in your hands and you forget about all of that. You forget about the last three years of your life. You just realize that everything unfolded exactly the way it was supposed to unfold . . . Wow, I just went on forever there.”
Charlize, on starting a family: “You can’t really be too calculated about everything in life. I think I’ve gone through my life with the understanding that you’ve got to let go and you can’t think that you’re going to control your destiny … That’s why I’ve never had a five-year plan. I always knew that I wanted to have children. It wasn’t kind of something that I discovered later. I also never felt the biological clock ticking because I think I always knew that I wanted to adopt. It never meant that I didn’t want to have my own children—I always felt that if I were in the right circumstances then I would totally have my own children.”
Kristen, on staying in the family business: “Well, my mom has now actually written and directed a movie, so her approach to it all changed very quickly. [laughs] But I was an extra a couple times, and I thought that was fun—it was something to do to get you out of school. And then when I first started auditioning, as I said, I didn’t get anything for a long time, so when I finally did get The Safety of Objects, it was like I discovered something. It was an experience where I felt something and tapped into something and got a part, so it was like, “Well, I guess that’s how you get a part.” I mean, it just sounds really obvious to every actor. Yeah, of course you have to really feel it. But it’s not so obvious to someone so young.”
