If you can't appreciate the "Snow White" story, Kristen Stewart's a little concerned.
The 22-year-old actress, who stars as the fair princess in this weekend's "Snow White and the Huntsman," told CNN that she can't imagine why someone wouldn't be able to enjoy the "Snow White" tale, seeing that it's lasted through generations.
"It's so completely fundamental I think you would have to be kind of a sociopath not to connect to the story," Stewart said. "It's about being good, it's about being a part of a whole and sort of valuing more than your looks."
That said, though, Stewart admitted she "didn't have a personal connection" with the classic fairy tale, which actually made her job a smidgen easier.
"I've been involved in adaptations that I have such absolute strong personal connections to that that pressure is not only from the outside but also from within," she said. "I think in this case, this was something that I was discovering for the first time, and that weight wasn't too heavy on my shoulders."
Stewart's "Snow White and the Huntsman" opens Friday.
