Although Kristen Stewart is well-known for a her tough and somewhat tomboy image in Hollywood, the Snow White and the Huntsman
star recently revealed her biggest fear on the set of her buzzed-about blockbuster -- riding horses
"I got to jump off cliffs and ride horses, and that terrifies me," Stewart admitted during the WonderCon panel for the film. "I was really, really not happy about having to do all that [horseback riding]. I don't like that – I hate that."
It turns out her fears stem from a bad accident she suffered riding horses in her childhood days.
"I fell off a horse once and hurt myself really badly," she explained. "I broke and dislocated my elbow when I was, like, nine."
But as evidenced from the extended trailer
that debuted yesterday, she overcame that fear to bring to life director Rupert Sanders' warrior version of the classic heroine.
"I just had to not think about it," Stewart said. "I wanted so badly to do this that it was just like, 'Alright, well, if I perish by horse, that's all good.'"
She added, "My favorite thing about [Snow White] is that she's endowed with so much and there's so much inside her. It's like she's brimming. She doesn't always necessarily know why. I can – in so many different parts of my life – relate to that and love that about her. So it was cool to have that all behind kicking the s*** out of someone."
Snow White and the Huntsman hits theaters June 1.
