"I've had the most indulgent experience on Snow White and the Huntsman so far," the actress, 21, who plays the title character, told reporters at L.A.'s Breaking Dawn – Part 1 premiere on Monday. "We had a lot of pre-production and I really got close with the director [Rupert Sanders] and [costar] Chris [Hemsworth] and everything, so I'm having a great time!"
And Stewart wants to make one thing clear: She doesn't feel like she needed much of a break before diving back into a starring role again.
"Obviously everyone thinks it’s a kind of rush to do it," she says. "[But] it was good timing; I had a little bit of time off in between [filming Breaking Dawn and Snow White]. It was good."
As for her time working on Twilight – which she calls "pretty unique" – Stewart tells PEOPLE she is grateful for her fans but is "fine either way" with the extreme fanfare or without it.
