    congrats on running to edit your post i guess.

    ..what???? Lmao I recognize it was loser-ish of me to search for 10 mins for the post, but … it would be another level of loser-ish to edit it.

    I sort of see it? Not sure if I “need” another Princess Diana biopic when the Naomi Watts one was so laughably bad, and “The Crown” is approaching soon with the Charles/Diana/Camilla season. Kristen Stewart is certainly a choice, isn’t she? The resemblance isn’t there, which is unfortunate, but that’s why hair and makeup departments exist. The aloofness, awkwardness, and etherealness are all present. Pablo Larraín brought out greatness from Natalie Portman, so maybe he can do it again with Stewart. I wonder if she can pull off the accent work though. I’m curious, so I’m in. Let’s see if she can step her p—- up or not lol.

    I love unexpected casting choices like that. It’s not like she’s an outsider or newcomer, but is definitely an interesting choice. Really rooting for her to excel.

    Stewart needs great voicework like Portman in Jackie, Theron in Bombshell etc to make people think she is Diana. She doesn’t have that. She lacks that kind of talent.

    Larrain earned enough goodwill from me with Jackie that I’m tempted to trust him, although the announcement threw me off so much i thought it was a joke at first haha. I’m tempted to agree that I don’t see stewart pulling this off, especially the accent. And generally when the consensus is so unanimous that someone is miscast that consensus is usually right, but every once in a while we all get proven wrong. I’ll hold out judgment because if we are proven wrong it will be really exciting.

    I told my mom about this casting (my mom is a british woman, born the same year as Diana, absolutely loved her, completely broke down when she died) expecting her to be horrified and her reaction, somewhat distanced from all the stewart discourse people like us have been in for years, was that she liked it. She thought the movie was a terrible idea and actually got more intrigued when i told her the casting. I actually disagree, and my mom felt the same way as me, that they dont like anything alike. Stewart’s long angular features are a much better match than even Naomi Watts or someone like god forbid emilia clarke. And my mom felt she has a sort of dark, somewhat tortured energy that would be a good fit for Diana. So i’m going to keep an open mind, because if to someone outside our pop culture obsessed bubble with a deep affection for Diana thinks it’s good casting, who am I to say they’re wrong before we see the thing

    To elaborate on why I’ve felt Stewart would be a great pick as Princess Diana, I in large part echo a lot of what has been said.

    Regarding physicality, it seems that similarities in face shape in particular is the most crucial part of facial structure for an actor and their real-life character for a biopic. Stewart and Princess Diana boast the same pointed but rounded jaw, sunken cheeks, sunken eyes, narrowing of the forehead as you ascend the face…

    Regarding behavior, Princess Diana made a big statement when she began squatting down to meet children on their level (of height) to talk to them. This was a huge display of humility for one of such high status, and I can picture Stewart giving this moment its full gravity. Stewart does not conform to a lot of society and Hollywood’s standards, be they in terms of what is perceived as classic femininity or heteronormativity or fashion. She has managed to become what we could call “an outsider who is on the inside” of Hollywood, much like Princess Diana herself was with the royal family in the public eye. I think Atypical nails it upthread when describing the “aloofness, awkwardness, and etherealness” that these two women share. You get the sense from hearing Princess Diana talk that there is a lot that is unsaid. She is deliberate about what she shares in conversations. Stewart as a person–and therefore in a lot of her performances–has this same sense of privacy or self-protection. I also add that I think Stewart is a very classy–for lack of a better word–person, though nonconforming.

    I haven’t seen too many biopics in my lifetime but I think biopics succeed most when the casting director prioritizes finding actors with similar inner lives or spirits to their subjects as opposed to searching for an actor who best physically resembles the subject. They did that with Stewart.
