Kristen Stewart gave props to Adele on the red carpet at the “Snow White and the Huntsman” screening in Los Angeles on Tuesday night, for helping inspire her performance in the film.

“I happen to just be listening to that album at the time,” Kristen told Access Hollywood, referring to Adele’s mammoth selling album, “21.” “The extremes of her emotion – when she’s got levity and she’s got light, it’s so light and when she’s down, it’s like devastating and it just reminded me of the movie, and yeah, I love her.”

Kristen plays Snow White in the film, which hits theaters on June 1, and although her character is a strong young woman, Kristen said the horse riding brought out her real fear.

“[It] scares me so much,” she said. “I feel like when you watch this movie, you’re going to see genuine discomfort and genuine pain and fear, which is so much cooler than people faking it. Yeah, so riding the horses was not my favorite thing.”

The actress said she’s proud of the role and was glad to be able to tackle such a powerful character.

“It’s so rare that a girl gets that opportunity and we definitely do not shy away from an arse kicking,” she laughed.

Later this year, the actress will return to the big screen in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” and she expects the steaminess between her character, Bella, and Robert Pattinson’s Edward, to be even hotter when it comes to their loved-up moments.

“I hope to up it a little bit,” she said. “We have to ‘up’ ourselves a little bit every time.”
