Stewart’s performance as the Princess of Wales in Pablo Larraín’s 2021 film earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination.
The 31-year-old has shared the difficulties of the role, which involves portraying Princess Diana’s bulimia, in a new interview.
Stewart told Vanity Fair that she tried to actually vomit while filming those scenes.
“I couldn’t get it, and I know it was because my body was like… the idea of that was just so untouchable,” she said, adding that she wanted to make sure the eating disorder wasn’t. The princess’ drink is not “covered up”.
Talking about her approach to acting, she said, “I would f**king do anything.”
In one of the film’s dinner scenes, Diana is seen running to the bathroom after she imagines herself choking on her pearl necklace.
Stewart previously described the scene as “an emotional Heimlich maneuver” in an interview with IndieWire.
“It was like she literally needed to go to the bathroom and cough up whatever was congested [she had]”Stewart explained.
She went on to commend the film’s director Larraín, saying, “I’m really amazed that he was able to push it as far as he did, and still keep it really emotional and tasteful.”
Spencer Set during the three-day period of Christmas before the end of Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles.
