Kristen Stewart has claimed that she is a victim if “slut-shaming” after losing her role in the new Snow White sequel.

Stewart, who famously appeared in the original 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman, has revealed that she was not invited back to audition for the sequel.

Addressing the situation in a new interview with Sirius XM radio, Stewart discussed her very public relationship with Snow White director Rupert Sanders—an incident which hit headlines during the film’s release date.

“We lived in a different time then, you know what I mean?” Stewart said. “I feel like the slut-shaming that went down was so absurd. And they should’ve put me in that movie! It would’ve been better. Not to be a dick, but…

“They didn’t put me in that movie because I went through such a highly publicised scandal, and so they were like scared of touching that.”

Stewart added: “That was a really hard period of my life. I was really young, I didn’t really know how to deal with that. I made some mistakes. And honestly, it’s no one’s business.

“Basically, what I’m saying is, the work to me genuinely was ignored in a really sort of frivolous, silly, petty way. For a group of adult people who were supposed to be running studios and making films? Honestly, the film industry in Hollywood is so fear-based.

“I think they’re idiots because if you take a little risk and make something good, people will watch it and like it and pay you.”
