It sounds like Kristen Stewart's titular character in "Snow White and the Huntsman" is a woman after her own heart.
"I think that I related to Snowy because ... I love her," she told MTV on Tuesday. "She feels such strong things and sort of can't say exactly why she feels those things ... and I can completely relate to that and I also can relate to feeling arrogant about it a little bit."
Attempting to explain further, Stewart added, "It's sort of like, 'It's not about being who you are'; it's sort of 'Not saying what everyone thinks I'm going to say because I'm uncomfortable' ... She's like, very instinctive and sort of awesome in that way."
Playing the Disney character had such an impact on Stewart that she now strives to be more like her.
"She's got this connection to the Earth and to her people that makes her, like, so truly empathetic and not sympathetic," the actress said. "She's not putting herself in a position and going, 'Oh, how horrible would that be for me.' She's truly bleeding for other people. It's a different feeling. It's something I want to get to if I can be a better person. She's a great girl. She's a good person."
“Snow White and the Huntsman," which also stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth, debuts in theaters on June 1.
