'Snow White and the Huntsman' Star Kristen Stewart Talks 'Breaking Dawn Part 2' Reshoots With Jay Leno (Video)
The actress said she injured her foot on the Vancouver set of the 'Twilight' film and called onscreen daughter Mackenzie Foy “the coolest actress” she’d ever worked with.
During an appearance promoting Universal Pictures' upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart walked onto the stage of NBC's The Tonight Show in flats and with a swagger she insisted wasn’t an attempt to appear cool.
“I wasn’t trying to have like ultimate swag when I walked out. I hurt my foot,” Stewart said. “I wasn’t trying to get out of wearing heels either.”
Stewart told host Jay Leno she injured her foot during reshoots for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. She also revealed the scene she primarily worked on saw her now vampiric Bella Swan going on her first hunt.
“The first hunt is always so important,” she said. "I just wanted more of it. We all wanted more of it."
Stewart also talked about playing a mother in the film, and praised her Breaking Dawn Part 2 onscreen daughter, 11-year-old Mackenzie Foy, calling her “the coolest actress” she’d ever worked with.
Foy’s character ages from infancy to teenhood during the film, and is portrayed by dolls during her younger years. Stewart did not find those dolls as charming as the real actress.
“They’re little Chucky dolls,” she said, describing them as infants with full heads of hair and sticky fingers.
Leaving the Twilight front, Leno teased Stewart about her first onscreen role, 2000’s The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas. She appeared in the film for a split second, during a carnival game scene.
“This is the definition of a small role,” Leno said before playing the clip.
