She gave a memorable portrayal as Tracy Tatro in director Sean Penn’s Into the Wild, in which she also performs two songs, including one that she wrote.
Her additional film credits include Jumper, What Just Happened, In the Land of Women, The Messengers, Zathura: A Space Adventure, Speak, Fierce People, Catch That Kid, Undertow, Cold Creek Manor and The Safety of Objects. Let’s take a look at how this young starlet landed the coveted role of Snow White.
Casting for Snow White and the Huntsman
The production crew all felt convinced that Snow White was not shy but somebody who was an aggressive, assertive, positive Joan of Arc-like figure. They were originally were looking for an unknown to play the character, in the same way as Alice in Wonderland, where they found Mia Wasikowska.
However, after flying down to New Orleans, where the last Twilight film was being shot, and sat and talked to Kristen. They felt great about casting Kristen, who really did her homework for this role. She spent four months riding horses and four months with an English accent.
After a worldwide search for a performer who could fulfill the demands of this expansive role, Kristen Stewart, known for her role as Bella Swan in the blockbuster Twilight saga, was cast in the much coveted role of Snow White.
Producers said that she has obviously done amazing work in her projects to date, but this opens her up to an even larger audience and gives her a classical role. She’s previously been in films that are of our era and not done a film quite like this. This is her chance to rise, and to shine as well. The two track well together, said producers.
On December 6, 2011, Stewart was named number one on Forbes magazine’s list of Hollywood’s Best Actors for the Buck. She’s also been named in FHM and Maxim top 100 women in the world list.
Well there you go, she’s definately a babe and that’s why she tops our list this month!
