Kristen Stewart ‘couldn’t open her mouth’ due to ‘Spencer’ tension

Actress Kristen Stewart, who portrays Princess Diana in the new biographical drama film ‘Spencer’, says it was a nerve-wracking experience, and the anxiousness led her to develop a pain in her jaw.

Stewart told BBC News: “I had TMJ (her jaw stayed shut) to the point where I was like, completely locked up. I was like, ‘Huh, I guess I’m really nervous’ – I was really tripping out until we started.”

She shared that she didn’t actually know a huge amount about the Royal Family before she accepted the role, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Stewart said: “I didn’t have the most developed or defined relationship with the Royal Family in generally. I didn’t grow up following the sort of saga. Obviously I do live on planet earth, and her impact was so immense and emotional, even for somebody who was seven when she passed away.”

Stewart did a lot of research before she started shooting the new movie.

The actress even took to watching ‘The Crown’ as part of her preparations for the role.

She said: “I read everything, I wanted every photo … watched all the interviews that I could get my hands on.

“I watched ‘The Crown’, I watched every iteration of interpretation. I just tried to absorb her in an emotional and general way, and then trust the process, and expect her to show up.”

She also felt a need to “protect” the late Princess.

The actress added: “I had to just not focus on other people’s idea of her, and really focus on my own. And that in itself was just so distinct and specific to me.”

Samantha-Ruth-Prabhu

 South India’s most happening actress Samantha Ruth Prabhu, who recently filed defamation cases against a couple of YouTube channels and an individual for streaming malignant content about her, has apparently received a legal blow.

Samantha had filed legal cases, which come under Kukatpally court in Hyderabad. After listening to her side of the case, the court apparently ordered that the actress could simply seek an apology from her opponents, rather than filing defamation cases.

“The actress can seek a word of apology from the content owners of the concerned YouTube channels, individuals and media outlets, rather than filing defamation cases on them,” the court suggested, as per reports.

The court went on to school the actress and apparently indicated that celebrities share personal details on public domain and then file defamation suits.

“In court, everyone is equal before the law. There is no sense of some being high and others being low. We will hear Samantha’s case as per the procedure,” the court concluded.

Samantha’s announcement about her divorce from Naga Chaitanya had invited unwanted comments and speculation about their relationship, and some channels went forward and linked her up with random colleagues.

In a major development, teams of Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) paid a formal ‘visit’ to the residences of Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan in Bandra west, and actress Ananya Panday in Khar west, and raided a location in Andheri on Thursday as part of the ongoing probe into the October 2 luxury cruiser rave party.

“The NCB Mumbai Zonal Unit officials visited ‘Mannat’, the residence of Aryan Khan in connection with the (Cr.94/21 case) for seeking certain material related to the investigation of the case from Shah Rukh Khan, by following due procedure of notice, etc.,” said NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede in a statement later.

He also dismissed reports in sections of the media dubbing the NCB trip to the superstar’s sea-facing bungalow as a ‘raid’.

The development, which grabbed national attention, came shortly after the Bombay High Court this morning decided to take up his son Aryan Khan’s bail plea on next Tuesday, October 26.

Simultaneously, Ananya Panday — daughter of Bollywood actor Chunky Panday and granddaughter of the renowned heart surgeon, the late Dr. Sharad Panday — has been summoned to the NCB offices this day for the probe and the actress.

The NCB has claimed that her name apparently figures in some WhatsApp chats of Aryan Khan recovered by the agency, along with others.

As part of its probe into the cruise ship party raids, the NCB has arrested a total of 20 persons so far, and more arrests are not ruled out.

It may be recalled that Nationalist Congress Party National Spokesperson and Minister Nawab Malik had last week claimed that among various Bollywood bigwigs targeted, Shah Rukh Khan was also on the radar of the central probe agency with sleuths keeping a watch on ‘Mannat’ in recent weeks.
