Look, we hate on Twilight here as much as the next red-blooded men’s brand, but the truth is that we like Kristen Stewart—quite a bit, actually. And it pains us to watch her blandly work her way through those lame vampire movies, knowing that, in real life, she’s far quirkier and more interesting than the fictional Bella Swan. She’s also a dynamite actress whenever she wants to be, like in the severely underrated Adventureland.
Thus, we’re stoked to see her headlining a project as cool as Snow White and the Huntsman. Director Rupert Sanders’ dark, edgy fairy tale adventure features Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as a bounty hunter who’s hired by the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron, an automatic plus) to capture Miss White (Stewart), but who ultimately teaches her how to become a warrior and take the Queen down. One glimpse of Stewart in her armor suit, with sword in hand, and you might just have a new fetish to hide from loved ones.
