The Twilight actress plays the lead role in the upcoming fantasy film, alongside Hemsworth as The Huntsman.

Filming had to be postponed last month (Oct11) after Stewart tore a ligament in her hand during a fight scene with dwarves, but the star admits she isn't the only one suffering from an injury - she accidentally punched Thor hunk Hemsworth in the face.

During an appearance on U.S. TV's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday (03Nov11), she explained, "It made such a sound. It was in a scene. Girls, if you've ever wondered if it (punching) works, it works! It literally spun him right around! I was supposed to miss him...

"I basically knocked him right out of his close up (shot). I was (crouched) down and he was over me, 'huntsman-ing' out, (and I made) just really good contact. And I could hear the cameramen go, 'Woah!'."

But Stewart insists she wasn't proud of herself after accidentally hitting her co-star: "I'm not proud though. Instantly, tears sprung to my eyes. Like, 'Ahh, are you OK?' But it will definitely be in the movie."

Asked if Hemsworth has a black eye, Stewart nodded, adding, "And a big lump on his nose!"
