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

‘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,’ Kristen said.

‘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,’ Kristen said.

‘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.
