Mirror, mirror on the wall who would make a better Evil Queen?
Although Roberts – who’s currently in negotiations to star in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, according to Deadline Hollywood – spent the summer traipsing around the world in Eat Pray Love, she did show a sharp edge as a feisty activist and mom in Erin Brockovich, for which she won an Oscar.
Then again, Theron – who’s reportedly in talks to put on the Queen costume for Snow White and the Huntsman – won an Oscar, too, but she played a serial killer in that film, aptly titled Monster.
Both beautiful, both Oscar winners. But which one has the capacity to scare audiences the most?
