Kristen Stewart opened up to Parade, where the actress talks about preparing for her sword-wielding role in Snow White and the Huntsman, the movie trickery that went into making it look believable, and her on the set injuries.
Here are some highlights:
On her training…
"They started me off with a cardboard sword and a foam shield. It was so much fun. I can't even tell you. [In the movie] We had so many different versions of the sword that all looked the same. We had the real sword, the plastic sword, the rubber sword, and the cardboard sword. But don't tell anyone that [laughs]."
On her body transformation…
"Dude! I was so ripped, my arms were so ripped. It was fun but I would look down and not recognize myself. My knuckles on my left hand underneath the shield were absolutely wrecked. They were so swollen. You push a lot of people with that shield so the back of my left hand was totally screwed the whole time."
On fighting through the pain…
"I broke my thumb on Breaking Dawn but on this [movie] I pulled the crap out of it, which is a worse injury too. It looked like it got run over by a semi-truck.
I did the majority of my active material, and I'm not being dramatic, in severe and excruciating pain."
