It hardly seems like a fair fight.
The evil queen is a calculating sorceress. Snow White is ... pretty, yet she always wins. Good for Snow White And The Huntsman for being solidly entertaining while raising the old debate over whether a woman's looks are her power. I just wish the film knew what it thought about that.
On one hand, Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) couldn't be more beautiful or powerful, beguiling the king and taking his throne. Theron's queen is a mad diva in fierce costumes, giving her scenes gleeful bombast befitting the film's dark, Game of Thrones style.

Snow White and the Huntsman star Charlize Theron was spotted ringside at the Ultimate Fighting Championship 146 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas Saturday. The actress, in a sleek black ensemble, looked on as mixed martial arts fighter Junior Dos Santos took down Frank Mir in a bloody battle.
Earlier in the day, the new mom enjoyed a quieter activity: dinner with five friends at Spago restaurant. The group dined on an array of items, including crab cakes, prosciutto pizza and tuna sashimi. Theron was in Sin City to celebrate a friend's birthday before continuing on her Snow White press tour.

It was love at first sight, says Charlize Theron, for her four-legged best friends and her infant son Jackson, whom she adopted in March.
"It was the most beautiful thing I've ever witnessed," the Oscar winner, 36, tells Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "From the moment this baby came into our home, those two dogs have never been more in love."
Theron happily considers her brood to be her family – no matter what others may think. She calls her dogs "her boys." They are, she says, "Berkley, a terrier mutt, and he's actually the pacifier thief ... He'll just lay there with the [baby's] pacifier in his mouth," and a pit bull named Blue, who help keeps the actress running on schedule.
"People keep saying, 'Oh you're a single mom,' and I'm like, 'Actually, I'm not. I got two boys helping me out.' It's incredible."

If it seems Charlize Theron is living a fairy tale, she is – complete with a perfect prince of her own choosing.

Charlize Theron is a woman who knows what she wants and usually gets it – and that includes her wish to start a family.
"Motherhood was something I always knew I wanted to experience," the star, who adopted son Jackson in March when he was 4 months old, tells InStyle in the June issue on newsstands May 18. "What a great opportunity."
The Oscar-winning actress, who stars in Snow White and the Huntsman and Prometheus this June, says she looks to her own mother Gerda as a parental role model.

"What would you give to see her again?"
That's the eerie question asked by the evil Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) when Huntsman Chris Hemsworth sees his protégé Snow White, felled by the Queen's poison apple, in the new trailer for Snow White & the Huntsman.
It's just about the only time Snow White (Kristen Stewart) stops fighting: this incarnation of the fabled beauty befriends terrifying monsters, dives off cliffs and expertly wields a sword. She even wears armor on the Snow White & the Huntsman soundtrack cover, striking a pensive pose as warring knights clash behind her. (The soundtrack's first single, "Breath of Life," by Florence + The Machine, can be heard in the clip above.)

Beverly Hills, CA - Actress
Charlize Theron was spotted making her way into Bouchon restaurant Sunday carrying some precious cargo.
Unfortunately, anyone dying to catch a glimpse of her newly adopted son Jackson was out of luck. Last time his carrier was covered in stars, and this time his muslin swaddling blanket was striped.
Also in tow for the Beverly Hills outing was Theron's mom Gerda, who "has been helping out with the baby," a source told PEOPLE.

And the award for best male member in a supporting role goes to … Michael Fassbender!
That's according to Charlize Theron, who jokingly saluted her Prometheus costar's anatomy on Saturday in reference to his several scenes of full-frontal nudity in Shame last year.
"Your penis was a revelation. I'm available to work with it any time," the new mom, 36, said at the Human Rights Campaign gala in Los Angeles, where she was honored with the Ally For Equality award, the L.A. Times reports.
