Kristen Stewart Was Just Cast as Princess Diana in a New Movie, and I Am Intrigued

Grayson Gilcrease

On June 17, it was announced that Kristen Stewart will be playing Princess Diana in the film Spencer. The upcoming movie will take place in the '90s and follow Diana as she ultimately decides her marriage to Prince Charles isn't working anymore. According to Deadline, the drama will take "place over three days, in one of her final Christmas holidays in the House of Windsor." Stewart has proven time and time again that she can do both comedy and drama, so the thought of seeing her as "The People's Princess" has me intrigued as to where she's going to take the role.

When looking at the pair side by side, there are some striking similarities in their appearances, but that isn't the most important thing since prosthetics and VFX have come a long way. Plus, it's been proven that makeup and costuming can work wonders. Still, for director Pablo Larraín, Stewart reportedly had all the necessary makings of a perfect Diana including her commitment, her ability to portray a story with just her eyes, and her diversity and strength as an actress. While shooting won't begin until 2021, we're still eagerly awaiting more details about its release.

  • These $15 Running Shorts From Old Navy Are So Much Better Than All the Others I Own

    If you're someone who regularly asks friends and colleagues for workout gear referrals, you've definitely heard someone recommend Old Navy at some point. The retailer's massive offering of sports bras for all types of workouts, leggings, and everything in between has made it a go-to shopping destination for fitness enthusiasts. Last year I had the chance to review the brand's workout leggings and found my absolute favorite pair of leggings with pockets. But since it's just way too hot to run in long tights right now (back-of-the-knee sweat can get itchy quickly in leggings), I researched Old Navy's running shorts, focusing first on length and fit. The Old Navy Dolphin-Hem Run Shorts ($15, originally $20) had a 3-inch inseam. I own a few 2-inch inseam shorts from various brands that I stopped running in because the fabric gets caught in my crotch and my inner-thighs start to rub and get red. Three-inches sounded like a perfect length. When they arrived I immediately put them on for a 20-minute HIIT run (read: lots of sprints). If there's one surefire way to test whether or not shorts are going to bunch in your crotch it's by opening up your stride and sprinting. During the run I didn't fiddle with the shorts once. The waistband remained snug without digging into my skin. I loved them - the shorts felt more like silk pajama shorts than workout gear, and the inner lining was lightweight. These are my absolute favorite pair and lucky me, they come in 11 other colors, including tie-dye. Related: I've Been Searching For Cheap Bike Shorts, and Old Navy Has Them With 1,000+ Reviews

  • 6 Not-So-Great Things I Noticed While Watching Clueless as an Adult

    When I discovered that Clueless was streaming on Netflix, my first thought was to force my teenage niece to watch it so she could have a taste of just what this generation is missing in cinema. Then, I realized how old I sounded in my own head and decided to do a rewatch as an adult. Because, as we all know, watching childhood favorites tends to hit differently when you rewatch them after you have gone through life and lived a little. And, probably, after you have kids. As an adult and a mom, watching Clueless brought up a ton of thoughts I may not have had when I first watched it at the ripe age of 12 - and not all of them are as fuzzy as Cher's pens.
