Kristen Stewart reacts to potential Oscar buzz for her performance in Spencer: ‘I don’t give as**t’










Kristen Stewart may receive her first Academy Award nomination for her critically acclaimed performance in Spencer, although the actress herself may not seem to care.

The 31-year-old actress delivers a solid performance as Princess Diana in director Pablo Larren’s biopic, and has garnered rave reviews since her debut at the Venice Film Festival in September.

Although we won’t know until early February if Stewart received her first Academy Award nomination, she responded sarcastically to the uproar in an interview with Variety: “I don’t give as a **t.”

“Oscars are a funny thing. ‘There are so many amazing films and shows that you can hardly see,'” Stewart added.

“It definitely says something about our standing as a cumulative existence – what we look at and what we care about,” Stewart continued.

I really appreciate that something you shared sparked such a great conversation. “We don’t make movies so we don’t communicate with each other,” she said.

When asked about her full experience with the film, going from festival to festival that garnered rave reviews along the way, Stewart said this was a “uniquely predictable” movie.

“It is not every day that you are part of the projects that are well-vetted,” she said.

As she joked that the first question was why she plays Princess Diana, she said, “It wasn’t my idea.”

Not her idea: She also joked that the first question was why would she play Princess Diana, and she said, 'It wasn't my idea'.

“I’d love to take credit for that,” she said of the script, “but Stephen Knight wrote this really flawless, kinda weird, and perfectly created dream.”

She added that the project is full of “projections” because no one knows what happened to these people in their private lives.

Still, Stewart said the information they had about Princess Di was “interesting and hard to fathom”.

It’s a movie about a woman working so quickly toward embodiment and it’s kind of the first time in the history of cinema that we’re allowed to have some kind of open perspective and look inside a more complex version of what it means to live inside the female body under such scrutiny. Stewart added that it seemed like a good time to examine that life.

When asked how she relates to this aspect of her life, Stewart said, “From an outside perspective, it’s very easy to draw parallels. Our lives include many cameras, but why these cameras are there and why they are filmed, the motivation is very different.”

Spencer opens in a limited edition on November 5, although it’s unclear if it will get a broader release.
