The actress opened up about the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot and revealed that it’s definitely going to bring something new to the table. Kristen Stewart talked to ET and among other things, also addressed Lucy Liu’s statement that the reboot is going to be a ‘positive result for women.’
As fans know, Liu starred in both Charlie’s Angels movies alongside Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz in 2000 and 2003.
Now it’s Stewart’s turn to take on one of the three main roles, the other two going to Ella Balinska and Nomi Scott.
‘Oh, that is really cool that she said that. It is true I think, it is not maybe everyone’s immediate response that it would be, like, something we would have to see again because the one I grew up with was so much fun, and you know, the re-imagining is so grounded and well-intentioned and really shows the way women can work together now. It tries to be warm and funny, but it lacks a kitch element that we have seen before that works so well,’ the Twilight star told the outlet.
‘We are not trying to do an impression of the last one, so yeah, I think Liz is like so genuinely naturally funny all the time anyway,’ she went on to explain.
As for the preparations, the actress revealed that she has already started training physically for the film but that she hasn’t yet met her co-stars.
‘I have been boxing a bit, which I have never done. I am so addicted to it. As soon as I have to actually start sparring though, I realize what I am doing is intended to fight people. I am like, it really is assaulting, and I really hate it. But all I am doing lately is talking to Liz, and can’t wait to meet the other girls, and I leave on Sunday … gonna start doing more fight training, getting more aggressive quite soon.’
