The Kristen Stewart of today is a far cry from the Kristen Stewart of “Twilight” fame. She’s grown up, and in her latest role as Princess Diana, she’ll be playing an iconic figure for generations to come. Kristen talked about her excitement at taking on such a big responsibility in this exclusive interview with HollywoodLife!
Kristen Stewart Talks About Playing Princess Diana in “Spencer” Movie!
What was your first reaction when you were offered the part?
Kristen Stewart: I was like YESSSS!!! It didn’t matter what it took — I would do anything to play that part because we all know who she is and how special she was. And then my family knew too much about me and could see that coming through (laughs). They’re like, ‘We know you, Kristen, we know that look.’ I’m excited.
just gonna leave these here 🤗

What is it about Diana’s story and your attraction to her?
KS: She was a teenager when she started this journey with Charles — so young! And then they were thrust into the world spotlight and having their lives changed in every single way imaginable. It would be weird if there wasn’t drama (laughs). But she was such an incredible person because of how much love she had for everyone around her despite all these pressures.
That’s why people felt connected to her; because everyone wants that but maybe isn’t able to do that on such a grand scale as well as she did. I think it’s really interesting what responsibility somebody has when they’re put into that position. We all have different ideas about royalty and who they are, but she obviously had a very strong sense of what it meant to be royal in the public eye.
KS: I know! Sometimes when you’re reading something, it becomes more manageable because there’s the distance between yourself and the character — but with this one…it was just like Kristen Stewart is Diana Spencer (laughs)?! It sounds absurd that I’m even playing her!
But then again, how dare anyone say no? How can someone tell me not to play someone as iconic as Princess Di? When did we decide that famous people get their own roles anyway?!
