“She’s not going to be saved by the prince and she’s not going to be dreaming about true love,” the actress said. “She’s going to be dreaming about becoming the leader she knows she can be and that her late father told her that she could be if she was fearless, fair, brave, and true.”

Zegler even suggested the prince’s scenes — portrayed by Andrew Burnap — could be cut from the final film, calling him “a guy who literally stalks [Snow White].”

“It’s really not about the love story at all, which is really, really wonderful,” Zegler said, discussing changes made in the remake. But fans of the original movie disagree and have slammed the actress for her “anti-feminist” take.

Zegler’s stance against Snow White’s romantic storyline can be seen as countering feminist values as it shames women who are content in a more traditional setting. Fans have pointed out that women can still dream of true love without this diminishing their power.

“Like Snow White is still independent but that doesn’t mean she can’t have a love interest [or] be saved by true love’s kiss,” one person commented.

Another said; “ I don’t understand why finding love is considered a weak or dependency issue. A woman can have both.”
