LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart have become the best of friends since playing mortal enemies in the upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman” – so much so, that Charlize says she’d do just about anything for the “Twilight Saga” star.
“I really, I really, really love that girl. I love that girl, like, I would jump off a building for that girl,” Charlize, 36, told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush at CinemaCon 2012 in Las Vegas when asked about Kristen. “She’s amazing, she’s amazing. She’s the real deal… [and] she gives really good back rubs.”
And the lovefest didn’t stop there!
In addition to KStew’s apparent massage skills, Charlize admires the 22-year-old actress’ acting ability and dedication.
“[Kristen] is the kind of actor that I like to be around because there’s nothing she’d really stop at in order to do the job,” Charlize explained. “She’s got a tremendous amount of talent and, you know, I think you can have talent, but if you don’t have tenacity and moxy… She’s bad ass.”
While Kristen may be a “bad ass” off-screen, Charlize plays an on-screen bad ass (or bad apple?) in “…Huntsman,” as the evil Queen Ravenna – a role the actress wanted to make as chilling as possible.
“I didn’t want to do this if we didn’t go all the way,” she told Billy. “I felt like there was such a great opportunity here to really kind of delve in and do something that, I don’t know, reminded me of like, Jack Nicholson in ‘The Shining’ or just something that really was grounded in reality.
“It was a madness that you understood and then just go with it,” she added. “So, yeah, I was really lucky to have been given the opportunity.”
