Kristen Stewart shared that the fame she received after being a part of Twilight saga has helped her prepare for her role as Princess Diana in Spencer.

The movie made its way at the 2021 Venice Film Festival last week along with many other highly anticipated movies. Spencer is scheduled to appear in various other festivals in the near future.

Spencer was written by Steven Knight and directed by Pablo Larrain. It revolves around three significant days of Diana's life. After Kristen's role in the Twilight Saga, she had a lot of negative experiences with the press.

The actress sat down with CinemaBlend to express how these experiences gave her understanding and helped with her portrayal of the "people's princess" in Spencer.

She shared that she knows what it feels like to be in a corner. The actress added, "I know what it’s like to feel defiance, and then kind of regretful of that, because then suddenly, you are being defined as rebellious."

Kristen further explained, "You have no idea how many times people will go, ‘So you don’t give a f--k, huh?’ Are you kidding? Is that really the impression? Because it’s the opposite of that. It’s so desperately the opposite. 

It’s a convoluted idea, but I definitely understand what it feels like to want human connection and actually, ironically, feel distanced by the amount that’s thrust at you."
