In the movie, Stewart's character is supposed to punch Hemsworth's face, but, of course, the scene was choreographed to look real. However, Stewart ended up accidentally clocking the 38-year-old actor.
The Twilight actress talked about the stunt gone wrong during an interview on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. She said she “basically knocked him right out of his close-up.” She added, “I mean, it literally spun him right around. It was crazy.”
Stewart recalled yelping when her knuckles made contact with his face. “I'm not proud, though,” she added. “Instantly, tears sprung to my eyes. [I was] like, ‘Are you OK?’”
In the film, Stewart plays the titular character, while Hemsworth plays Eric the Huntsman, who ends up becoming Snow White's love interest throughout the course of the film.
All we know is that if anyone can take a punch, it's probably the God of Thunder.
