Kristen Stewart vs. Julia Roberts, It’s a ‘Snow White’ battle of the bitches

Sunday, June 26, 2011

While this story may or may not be true, it sure does seem believable at the very least. To bring everyone up to speed, there will be two competing Snow White adaptations, which come from different film studios and shall be released less than a month apart in 2012. One of the movies, a “revisionist take,” is called Snow White and the Huntsman and stars Kristen Stewart as the eye-roling, mouth-breathing titular character and Chris Hemsworth as the Huntsman. The other version will be a more straightforward version of the tale with Lily Collins as Snow White and Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen. Such a mess, right?
Now the Enquirer has taken advantage of these details (and Julia’s reputation as a rude and obnoxious bitchto everyone, including her own family) to create a rift between the relative star power at work in either movie; that is, Kristen and Julia are now reportedly at each other’s throats:
Twilight vampire lover Kristen Stewart is baring her fangs at Julia Roberts — over their competing versions of the new Snow White movies.
The stars are scrambling to be first to release their films — and their war of words is enough to make the Seven Dwarfs blush
“Kristen thinks Julia’s currently untitled version of “Snow White” is old-fashioned and dull,” divulged a source close to the 21-year old actress. “She thinks only old fogies will see it. She believes that her movie — Snow White and the Huntsman — is a more contemporary take on the much-loved story.”
Hollywood legend Julia is seething over the disrespectful attitude of newcomer Kristen, said a friend of the 43-year old Oscar winner. “Julia thinks Kristen’s a young punk who’s too big for her britches! She told a pal, ‘We’ll just see who has the bigger movie. She might have to eat her words!’”
Kristen’s film is an edgier take on the classic fairytale, focusing on the huntsman — played by hunky Thor star Chris Hemsworth.
In Julia’s more literal version, she’ll play the evil queen while actress Lily Collins from The Blind Side has been cast as Snow White.
In a dramatic race to be first to the box office, Kristen’s producers moved up the opening date from December 21, 2012, to June 1 next year to get the jump on Julia’s movie, which was slated for a June 29, 2012, premiere.
Julia’s camp countered by moving her flick up to March 15 — even though filming has just begun.
“No one wants to have another film running with the same scenario,” said box-office division president Paul Dergarabedian. “Once the first one comes out, it is hard to convince audiences to go again. In their minds, it’s the same movie.”

Unfortunately, this will probably not be a battle between the quality of these movie but will likely favor whichever movie gets to the multiplexes first. Under equal circumstances, I’d be more inclined to watch the less traditional take on the story merely because of the creativity factor involved, but that doesn’t mean much in terms of enjoyability either. After all, the recent Red Riding Hood tried to mix up its fairy tale but was largely a ridiculous atmospheric mess, so who knows how a revisionist take on Snow White would go over? Quote frankly, I’m not entirely sure that the public will care that much about either one.
Still, the idea of a feuding Kristen and Julia is a pretty hilarious one at that. I can see Julia getting all up in Kristen’s face only to be confronted by an eye roll and a puff of marijuana smoke.
