Kristen Stewart has been accused of being irresponsible for trying to make herself vomit while describing Princess Diana’s battle with bulimia.
It also came under fire and Spencer’s creators were accused of glamorizing eating disorders in a film based on the late British royal family.
Kristen, 31, an Oscar nominee for Best Actress for the role, said she didn’t want Diana’s illness to be trivialized.
“I would do anything. I couldn’t throw up on this movie, even when I really had to,” he told Vanity Fair.
“I felt like a real asshole and I couldn’t get up, and I know it was because my body was like… the idea was so untouchable.”
However, Tom Quinn, from eating disorder charity Beat, said while they understood that the actor wanted to approach their character as closely as possible and did it this way despite the huge risks to their health.
“Drawing an eating disorder on screen can be a brilliant way to raise awareness of this serious mental illness, but it’s imperative it’s done responsibly.”
“We urge the film industry to protect professionals working in this field, for example by dedicating time and resources to eating disorder training.”
Previously Kristen Stewart had responded to netizen requests to play the Joker in the DC universe.
In an interview with Variety at the Awards Circuit Podcast, Kristen Stewart spoke for the first time about netizens’ wishes. But apparently he didn’t show much interest in joining the Joker cast.
“I love the energy behind it,” Kristen Stewart said during a chat on the podcast.
“But the Joker has been played well by many actors. But I like their enthusiasm (netizens),” continued Kristen.
