• Kristen Stewart revealed she didn't know about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's California move in a new interview with Vanity Fair
  • She said it "makes sense" that the couple chose to settle down in Santa Barbara
  • Stewart admitted she couldn't bring herself to watch Prince Harry and Markle's entire interview with Oprah Winfrey 

Kristen Stewart hasn't caught up on the latest news about the current members of the British royal family.

The "Spencer" actress recently revealed in a new interview with Vanity Fair that, while she did extensive research on the late Princess Diana for her role, she doesn't know everything about the modern-day royals. As a result, Stewart was unaware of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's 2020 move to California, where the actress herself lives.

"That's so funny. I wonder where," Stewart, 31, said. "I'm no better than anyone! Of course, I want to know."

When journalist Yohana Desta told her that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have settled in Santa Barbara, Stewart nodded her head in approval, noting that it "makes sense" because "it's really nice up there."

The "Twilight" star also revealed that she only watched small parts of Prince Harry and Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired in March 2021.

"It was almost too hot to touch in terms of how personal it was for me at that time," the actress said.

As for her preparations for playing Princess Diana in "Spencer," Stewart said she spent months researching the role, including tapping into the late princess' loneliness as her marriage to Prince Charles dissolved.

"One of the remarkable things is that she was so friendless," the "Charlie's Angels" star said. "I'm constantly going, 'Where was your f—ing homie?'"

Stewart also said she wanted to ensure that Princess Diana's eating disorder "was not glossed over" in the film, revealing that she attempted to actually purge while filming the scene portraying the late royal's bulimia in a bathroom.

"I couldn't throw up on this movie, even when I really should have," she said. "I felt like absolute s— and I could not get it up, and I know it was because my body was just like…the idea of that was so untouchable."

Stewart's hard work paid off as her "Spencer" role earned her her first-ever nomination for an Academy Award for best actress in a leading role, a Critics' Choice Movie Award nomination for best actress and a Golden Globe Award nomination for best actress in a motion picture - drama.

"I am speechless and humbled this morning. I am bowled over by this. I never thought in a thousand years I’d be in the company of these four incredible women," Stewart told Entertainment Tonight of her reaction to the news that she was nominated for an Oscar.

She will face off against Jessica Chastain ("The Eyes of Tammy Faye"), Olivia Colman ("The Lost Daughter"), Penelope Cruz ("Parallel Mothers") and Nicole Kidman ("Being the Ricardos") in the best actress category.

The 94th Academy Awards will air on March 27 at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
