Kristen Stewart in 'Snow White & the Huntsman'

Kristen Stewart soared to stardom playing the damsel in distress in the Twilight movies, but she doesn't need anyone named Edward or Jacob to fight her battles in Snow White & the Huntsman. With the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) out to eat her heart (literally) in this edgy, action-packed take on the beloved fairy tale, K-Stew's Snow White rises to her own defense (with, we must admit, a little help from the titular huntsman, played by Thor's Chris Hemsworth). Donning armor and brandishing a sword, Stewart leads a revolution to overthrow the queen -- and does some pretty crazy stuff in the process. "I got to jump off cliffs and ride horses," Stewart said of the stunts she was required to perform. In other words, this is one fairy-tale heroine quite capable of making her own happily ever after.
