Kristen Stewart Says Director Fling Did Not Cost Her ‘The Huntsman’ Prequel Gig
She and Pattinson attempted to make a go of their romance, and Sanders tried to patch up his relationship with model Liberty Ross – but both fell apart. And when Stewart wasn’t part of the film’s new prequel, some gossips suggested her fling with the director had cost her a role. The Twilight star tells The Hollywood Reporter that simply isn’t the case. “I read a few scripts (and) none of them were good,” she said. “None of them were greenlight-able.” “I had a meeting with Universal about the places where the story could go.” “It wasn’t a situation where I got kicked off a movie because I got in trouble,” she added. “We had been in talks months after that about making something work, and it never came together.” Asked why she thought her co-stars Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth came back for the latest film, Stewart said, “Maybe Chris was more into it. I actually don’t f**king know.” It appears she may have been right to pass on the film – The Huntsman: Winter’s War hit cinemas last month to lacklustre reviews. It opened with a disappointing $20.1 million debut weekend.
