Kristen Stewart - Kristen Stewart: Adele Helped Me Prepare For Battle Scenes

Kristen Stewart listened to Adele's music to prepare for the battle scenes in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'.

The 22-year-old actress found the British singer-songwriter's emotional power ballads to be the perfect soundtrack to her character's attempt to win back her kingdom in the big screen reworking of the 'Snow White' fairytale.

She told the Chicago Sun Times: ''I had Adele on my iPod all the time while doing 'Snow White'. I choreographed whole marches with the army behind me to Adele in my one ear.

''Adele is really good for the 'Snow White' story. Almost oddly good. She hits the nail on the head for me, and her words are incredible.''

Kristen is eager to leave comparisons to her 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' character Bella Swan behind but admitted there are some similarities between Bella and Snow.

She said: ''How do I compare Bella from 'Breaking Dawn' with Snow White? I guess the only actual comparison -- and a million could be drawn - is that they are both very, very strong matriarchs that need to find that position in life. They're both icons.

''I didn't grow up on fairy tales. People kept saying to me, 'Oh, like us you grew up with this story.' My answer is, 'No, not really. I didn't.' But then again, I didn't grow up with vampires either.

''Both of these tales were given to me through scripts. I've been really lucky. When it comes to Snow White now I think I know her better than most because there really is such a back story behind what's a simple fairy tale.''
