Looking Back At Our Interview With Rupert Sanders: SWATH Set Was “Very Intense,” Calls Kristen “Raw And Primal”

|

Well, here we are. In light of the, um, events of the past 24 hours, we’ve been digging through our old videos and posts from the Snow White and the Huntsman press junket I attended outside London in May (which Robert Pattinson was at, on the sly). Previously we had only published a snippet of our conversation with the film’s director, Rupert Sanders, but here’s our chat in its entirety, airplane interruption and all.

In our conversation he complimented the film’s “two incredibly strong female actors” and said of their time on set: “Everything was very intense. We were shooting in a very intense way, we were shooting very organically. I threw Kristen of cliffs, Imade her ride horses, fight dwarves…it’s a very primal film. It’s very intense.”

As for Kristen Stewart, with whom Sanders has admitted to having an extramarital affair, he said this: “She’s very vital, very on the edge, very rebellious, which I like. She doesn’t play by anyone’s rules, she’s just got all those things that make a very modern and intoxicating Snow White.”

He added that when he and the producers first met Kristen, he thought, “Wow, there’s something really raw and primal in this woman.”

Lord knows it’s been a very intense day filled with a lot of raw emotions and primal reactions to the news that Rupert and Kristen did indeed have some sort of relationship. I’m not sure my interview gives us any real insight as to what went on between these to that lead  to their cheating and today’s implosion, but it is nonetheless interesting to go back and watch.
