Kristen Stewart has opened up about her “spooky” filming experience directing Princess Diana’s new movie “Spencer”.

The actor, who plays the late Princess of Wales in Pablo Larraín’s film, told ET’s Lauren Zima this week that the odd moment involved Diana’s iconic wedding dress.

“When we put this dress on, it’s built into a montage that kind of showed her life in front of you,” Stewart told ET, explaining the role the montage plays in the film, which only takes place over three days. . “The wedding dress is built into this montage and putting it on was a scary day.”

Stewart has previously spoken about the feeling she connected with Diana, who died in 1997, while filming, and the “creepy spiritual feelings” she experienced on set.

“I felt like there were times when I kind of got approval,” she told the Los Angeles Times in September. “It’s scary to tell the story of someone who is no longer alive and who already feels so overwhelmed. I never wanted to feel like we were invading anything, just adding somehow to the multiplicity of a beautiful thing.

“She felt so alive to me when I was making this movie, even though it’s all between the ears and it was just a fantasy for me,” the actor added.

“But there were times my body and my mind forgot that she was dead,” said Stewart. “Maybe two or three times a week, I was completely collapsing that she was dead. I just couldn’t accept this, because I was fighting to keep her alive every day. ”
