Kristen Stewart Overcame Her Fear Of Horses For 'Snow White' Role
Actress Kristen Stewart was forced to face her fear of horses in new movie Snow White And The Huntsman after a childhood riding accident left her scarred for life.
The Twilight star, who plays the title character in the film, was required to shoot a series of her own stunts on horseback and she admits she was far from comfortable in the saddle.
Speaking to fans during a panel at last weekend's WonderCon event in Anaheim, California, she said, "I got to jump off cliffs and ride horses, and that terrifies me. I was really, really not happy about having to do all that (horseback riding). I don't like that - I hate that."
"I hate 'em. I fell off a horse once and hurt myself really badly. I broke and dislocated my elbow when I was, like, nine."
However, Stewart reveals she did her best to bury the memory.
She added, "I just had to not think about it. I wanted so badly to do this that it was just like, 'Alright, well, if I perish by horse, that's all good.'"
