Lily Collins and Kristen Stewart beyond Snow White roles

The Snow White actresses of Mirror Mirror and Snow White and the Huntsman have crossed paths beyond their films. Is it smiling faces or harsh glares in Hollywood?

Lily Collins vs. Kristen Stewart?

If two teenage girls showed up to the prom in the same dress, you can bet that they're both fuming inside their heads and feuding throughout the night.

The big-screen version of this scenario has two young Hollywood starlets cast in the same role (thankfully, in starkly different films): Lily Collins carries the coveted curse of beauty in Mirror Mirror while Twilight actress Kristen Stewart plays the lead in Snow White and the Huntsman.

However, Collins says that her relationship with Stewart is nothing short of a fairy tale.

"We've laughed about the fact that people think we're rivals because to us they're so different," Collins told E! News last night at her Nylon magazine dinner party at Scarpetta in Beverly Hills.

"I think the advertising is kind of genius because both films are being shown in this different way because they are such different stories," she continued. "I've seen the trailers, I'm very aware of the other one. We've always been aware of each other and I'm excited to see what Kristen does… I'm excited for her and vice versa."

Collins also gushed about working with Julia Roberts, who plays the Evil Queen in her version.

"If I could have shown on screen how I was genuinely feeling when she was being mean to me, it would have been me smiling and laughing the whole time," Collins smiled. "Because it was me pinching myself that it was actually happening. She is an amazing, incredible woman."
