Kristen Stewart discusses recent engagement and ‘exhausting’ British accent for Spencer on talk show

Kristen Stewart discussed her recent engagement and using a British accent to portray Princess Diana on Wednesday’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

The Twightlight star, 31, is currently blazing the promo trail with Diana biopic Spencer and during her appearance on the NBC show, she spoke about the difficulties of pulling off the Royal’s famously gentle, plummy tones.

As well as her on-screen work, Jimmy, 47, also congratulated Kristen on her engagement to screenwriter Dylan Meyer, 34, after they became betrothed on Tuesday following two years together as a couple.

After Jimmy gave his congratulations, Kristen accepted a warm applause from the audience while smiling and congratulating herself. On her fiancée, the loved-up star said: ‘Also, knocked it out of the park. No, I scored’. 

Jimmy then dished out marital advice, saying: ‘It’s the best thing in the world, I can’t even tell you. Now you have a buddy who kind of has to do things with you’. 

Kristen went on: ‘I know, and we have to like help each other out with stuff, too’, while Jimmy responded: ‘Yeah, it’s a whole thing now,’ Jimmy said.

‘You got to do the stuff I don’t want to do, man,’ Kristen said laughing.

Jimmy told Kristen that she has a ‘great reputation’ and asked if she feels as if she’s cool.

‘Um, …well, it’s freezing in here,’ quipped the Los Angeles native.

Jimmy then asked Kristen if she was ‘always the cool kid in school’ and she replied, ‘Oh, man, no. I was always so inside out. Are you kidding?’.

‘Yeah, it’s taken years to get to this conversational point,’ she admitted.

Jimmy later told Kristen that he ‘got lost’ in her performance in Spencer and thought he was watching Princess Diana.

‘Tough to do the accent, is it?,’ he asked.

‘Yeah. It’s like so muscular. It’s exhausting,’ Kristen said. ‘When I speak, I feel like I don’t open my mouth and I feel like this croaked frog…,’ Kristen said.

‘Words come out her mouth like bubbles and I’m like brick to the floor,’  she said laughing.

Jimmy noted that she’s taken on challenging roles in the past such as the Twilight franchise and praised her for portraying Princess Diana.

She went on: ‘Yeah. Gosh, I mean, like, you know, I’ve been doing this for a minute, so there’s really no way, there’s no reason to keep going unless you’re going to try and, you know, push the envelope…

‘And, if you cancel out all of that noise, she’s so, she’s so sparkly and she’s, like, so completely complicated and difficult to understand…

‘And we lost this person too early. And so I think that we’re always kind of, we’re never going to have the information that we want to have’.

‘So I was like just embed yourself in your own desires and curiosities and try and sort of not think about other people’s. But I will say that the weight of that matters. Her connection to people matters. That’s who she was like, the reason we’re telling this story still,’ Kristen said.

‘She reached out and touched people in a way that nobody ever really has, especially in that environment,’ she added.

Spencer will be released in theaters in the US and the UK on Friday.
