Kristen Stewart on Preparing to Play Princess Diana in Spencer

Kristen Stewart is currently preparing to play Princess Diana in the forthcoming movie Spencer, and it’s already clear that the Happiest Season star is taking her new role very seriously.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Stewart opened up about taking on the iconic role. Discussing the royal, the actress said, “It’s hard not to feel protective over her. She was so young … everyone’s perspective is different, and there’s no way to get everything right … what is fact in relation to personal experience.”

When Kimmel described Diana as “one of the most beloved figures in the history of the world,” Stewart replied, “I feel sort of the same way about her. It happened really quickly. I didn’t grow up with her maybe in the same way. I was really young when she passed away.”

As for what the new movie will cover, Stewart told Kimmel,

Gut immune cells may play key role in MS

Gut immune cells appear to help dampen multiple sclerosis flare-ups, researchers say.

Such flare-ups — which can cause vision loss, memory problems, pain and other symptoms — often subside on their own after days or weeks, but it’s not clear what triggers multiple sclerosis patients to go from remission to flare-up and back again.

An international team of researchers recently found that in animal models of MS, gut immune cells leave the digestive system and travel to the brain and seem to reduce inflammation there.

“It was a very new idea,” team member Sergio Baranzini, professor of neurology at the University of California, San Francisco, said in a university news release. “Nobody thought to look for this type of immune cell.”

In the new study, Baranzini and his colleagues analyzed cerebrospinal fluid from MS patients for an antibody called IgA, which is expressed by gut immune cells.

The investigators discovered

The sci-fi adventure will see Reynolds play a man who must travel back in time to get help from his 13-year-old self. While he’s there, he encounters his late father, a physicist played by Ruffalo, who is now the same age as Reynolds’ character.

Ruffalo’s recent roles include his Emmy-winning performance in the HBO miniseries I Know This Much Is True, as well as the lead in Todd Haynes’ legal thriller Dark Waters. He’s perhaps best known for playing the Hulk in Marvel’s Avengers franchise.

Catherine Keener has also joined The Adam Project – she’ll play the movie’s villain, who steals powerful technology from Ruffalo’s character. The Oscar-nominated actor is known for her roles in Get Out, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Being John Malkovich.

Mark Ruffalo To Play Dad To Ryan Reynolds In Netflix Time Travel Movie

Mark Ruffalo and Ryan Reynolds work in different parts of the comic book movie-verse, though perhaps not for long: Marvel, who owns Bruce Banner/Hulk, and Fox, who owns Deadpool, do now live under the same tent, thanks to that huge (and worrying) Disney merger. But thanks to Netflix, they’ll finally get to share the same space, albeit for a non-superhero movie. In fact, as per The Hollywood Reporter, they’re going to play father and son.

The movie in question is The Adam Project, and it’s been in the works for a while. In fact, it just started shooting in Vancouver last week. The movie stars Reynolds as a man who goes back in time, seeking help from his 13-year-old self. He also rubs shoulders with his physicist dad, which we now know will be played by no less than Ruffalo. (Catherine Keener is also on hand as the
