Kristen Stewart Offered Snow White Role, Says Source
Kristen Stewart is reportedly just a signature away from portraying Snow White in the upcoming film adaptation of the classic fairy tale.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Kristen, 20, was offered the lead role in Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman. As previously reported KStew was on the shortlist of possible actresses to portray Snow White in the Rupert Sanders-directed live-action film. Apparently she won over the movie bigwigs!
Other actresses that were being considered for the role of Snow White included Kristen's Runaways co-star Riley Keough and Sucker Punch star Emma Browning.
There is no word on if Kristen will accept the role but if decides to sign on to the film it will be her first post-Twilight project. The young actress is currently in the middle of filming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Other stars that are rumored to be joining the film include Charlize Theron (who will play the Evil Queen) and Viggo Mortensen.
With The Twilight Saga under her belt, Kristen will have no problem filling the shoes of another iconic character.
