In an interview with Variety, Stewart explained that she was in talks with studio Universal about a possible "Snow White" sequel after the first flick was a hit back in 2012.
"I read a few scripts," the actress told Variety -- but she wasn't impressed.
"None of them were good," she continued. "None of them were greenlight-able."
Stewart told the trade that she met with Universal to discuss the future of the franchise, but that those talks never materialized into anything. And then, she found out about the existence of "Winter's War" via a press release. Here's how Variety reports Stewart responded:
"I was like, 'OK, cool,' " she says with a laugh. "We hadn't spoken in a long time, but I didn't know we had broken up." The studio did reach out to ask if she would appear in a cameo as Snow White. She told them, "I might just leave that be. I was really into that, but — " she adds with a smirk. "So now I'm like ... 'Thank God.' "
That's not even subtle shade -- that's just straight-up shade. But who can blame her? After all, she helped launch the would-be franchise, and then Universal continued the series without even telling her. (Though Stewart claimed in her Variety interview that that decision had nothing to do with her affair with married "Snow White" director Rupert Sanders; she and the studio had been in talks for months after that scandal blew over, she said.) And then the movie was a flop, with critics and audiences alike. Thank God, indeed, that she dodged that bullet.
