comeback this year with two very different movies- dark comedy “Young Adult”, and this month’s action fantasy movie “Snow White and The Huntsman”. Obviously based on the fairy tale, Theron plays the wicked stepmother role opposite Kristen Stewart’s Snow White and Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman.


“You know, this is one of those showy characters where every scene could go so many different ways in reality and we did try that” she explains about tackling such a large-scale and well known character. “He (director Rupert Sanders) went into the editing room and he found the beast of the character and figured out what worked and what didnʼt work.”
