Kristen Stewart transforms into Princess Diana in new photo
Two months after The Crown's fourth season, our first look at another major Princess Diana portrayal has arrived. Kristen Stewart will play the Princess of Wales in the upcoming film Spencer, and the first still from the movie was released Wednesday. The film takes place around Christmas and follows Diana when she "decided her marriage to Prince Charles wasn't working, and that she needed to veer from a path that put her in line to one day be queen," Deadline reported. Pablo Larraín, who directed Natalie Portman in the Oscar-nominated Jackie Kennedy film Jackie, is directing Spencer, while Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight wrote the screenplay. Though it's hard to not look at Kristen Stewart and go "that's Kristen Stewart," credit where it's due: she's perfected the side-eye. See the photo here.
Inauguration poet books her next gig — at the Super Bowl
Amanda Gorman is set to ride the wave of enthusiasm generated by her inauguration performance all the way to the Super Bowl.

She'll be reciting an original poem inspired by three honorary captains — Marine Corps veteran James Martin, ICU nurse manager Suzie Dorner, and educator Trimaine Davis — selected by the NFL for their heroic actions during the COVID-19 pandemic, reports Variety. Gorman drew widespread acclaim after reading her poem "The Hill We Climb" at President Biden's inauguration, prompting Oprah Winfrey to rave, "I have never been prouder to see another young woman rise!"
Has anyone seen Jared Leto's Oscar?
Jared Leto is missing a shiny gold doll statue. He won the coveted Academy Award in 2014 for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, but recently discovered the trophy has been MIA for three years. Don't worry, though, he's not too concerned. Leto, who has been rock climbing in Nevada with Alex Honnold from Free Solo as of late, told James Corden on The Late Late Show the award was misplaced in a move, and no one wanted to tell him. Since it's not the sort of thing that gets accidentally thrown in the trash, Leto says he hopes somebody is caring for it. "I hope it's in good hands, wherever it is," he said calmly. But do let him know if you come across it.

Bridgerton's Queen Charlotte costume proved to be a royal pain
Proving to be the diamond of the season, Bridgerton is officially Netflix's biggest-ever debut for an original series. And no one knows better than the Queen herself that diamonds don't shine without a little pressure. Golda Rosheuvel, who plays Queen Charlotte in the show, revealed on The Netflix Afterparty the difficulties of donning Regency-era royal attire. It took the work of two people and 45 minutes to an hour for Rosheuvel to get into the queen's costumes, which consisted of a pannier, two skirts, and two corsets beneath the massive dresses. "Peeing is quite difficult," the actress revealed. "It takes about half an hour to go to the toilet." Even the queen isn't immune from struggle.
