Chris Hemsworth apparently got a little more than he bargained for when he signed on to star opposite Kristen Stewart in Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman.

The actress, who is currently promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1, appeared on NBC's The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Thursday night, where she relayed a story about smacking the Thor star while shooting a scene in Snow White.

"When they call action, it doesn't matter how times they say look, watch this, be careful with this, don't hit him in the face -- Chris Hemsworth -- which I did," Stewart told Leno.

"Thor? You hit Thor in the face?" Leno asked.

"It made such a loud sound. ... I was supposed to miss him by this much," Stewart said. "I basically knocked him right out of his close-up."
