Chris Hemsworth says ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ co-star Kristen Stewart apologized immediately after accidentally punching him in the face while filming a scene in the 2012 film.
“I was more upset that she didn’t continue the take,” Hemsworth said while discussing his acting career in a new video for GQ.
He continued, “She kind of hit me and immediately said, ‘Oh my god! I am really sorry. I was like, ‘That would have been the perfect, most truthful take we’ve had.’ I think she was more upset than me.”
Hemsworth and Stewart starred in the film, which was a darker take on the classic German fairy tale about Snow White. Hemsworth’s hunter character helped Snow White escape Ravenna (Charlize Theron), a witch and the protagonist’s evil stepmother.
The two actors previously opened up about Stewart’s punch while promoting the movie.
During an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” Stewart recalled making “such a sound” when her hand made contact with Hemsworth’s face.
“I mean, it literally made him spin,” she said. “It was crazy.”
The ‘Twilight’ alum said she was supposed to miss her face slightly during filming, but she “basically knocked it out of her close-up.”
“I mean, I’m not proud, though,” she said. “Instantly, tears welled up in my eyes. I’m like, ‘Are you okay?'”
In another interview with Moviephone’s “Unscripted,” Hemsworth said that with each take he “could feel his knuckles getting closer and closer to the tip of my nose.”
“It brushed my nose and I thought, ‘This is going to hurt,’ he added.
“He was really intimidated because he didn’t tell me anything,” Stewart said.
“I was just in the zone I guess,” Hemsworth replied. “It was a right hook to the side of my nose. I was like, ‘Is that bad?’ And everyone [gasped]. I thought it was broken, that’s for sure. Rivers of blood.”
