Neve Campbell Believes Her “Scream 6” Offer Would Have Been Different If She Were A Man

Published

on

Back in June, the actor, who has starred as Sidney Prescott in all five films, shocked fans when she announced she wouldn’t be appearing in Scream 6.

And while recently discussing her choice to leave, Neve said she believes things would have been totally different if she were a man.

“I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years,” Neve told People.

She continued, “And as a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued.”

Neve went on to say that she doesn’t believe a man who had been a part of a franchise for that long would have been offered what was presented to her.

“I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man,” Neve shared.

She added that in her “soul,” she “just couldn’t do that.”

“I couldn’t walk on set feeling that — feeling undervalued and feeling the unfairness, or lack of fairness, around that,” Neve concluded.

I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that the studio will come to their senses and offer Neve what she deserves!

The best movies and documentaries about Princess Diana

Published

on

Years after her tragic death in 1997 at the age of 36, Princess Diana continues to be a source of inspiration and fascination. Movies, TV shows, documentaries, novels and biographies all explore the circumstances of her life. 

And it was an extraordinary one. Born Diana Spencer in 1961, she went on to marry the heir to the British throne and move people around the world with her personality and her humanitarian efforts. 

To this day, people mourn the loss of the People’s Princess and hunger for more details about the scrutiny she faced, before and after her divorce from Prince Charles. Her two children, William and Harry, also pay homage to their mother. 

If you’re looking for a royal-themed night in, these are the best movies about Princess Diana to watch, ranging from horror-infused imaginative works starring Kristen Spencer to documentaries using footage from Diana’s real life. We’re ordering them in chronological order, as the tone of the movies vary depending on when they were made.

‘The Princess’ (2022)

The year of the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, HBO is releasing an original documentary about her life. Composed exclusively of archival footage, the Ed Perkins documentary directed “immersive and intimate” look into how public adoration, coupled with the overwhelming scrutiny she faced, became a perfect storm.

‘Spencer’ (2021)

This critically-acclaimed film garnered much praise for its intense and imaginative retelling of Princess Diana’s life, more designed to evoke a feeling of her circumstances than the actual facts.

“Spencer,” starring Kristen Stewart (who landed her first Oscar nomination for her portrayal as Princess Diana), focuses at the point in Princess Diana’s life where her relationship with Prince Charles was on the decline, and she was growing tired of the pressures of being a royal. The film also shows her real-life battle with bulimia.

Although Diana is widely known for her elegance and soft demeanor, this movie gives a sharper image of what her life was like away from the press — and if you’ve seen this film, which borrows from the horror genre, you know it’s not pretty.

‘Diana: The Musical’ (2021)

The legend of “Diana: The Musical” is eclipsed only by the legend of Diana herself. Before the musical hit Broadway stages in Nov. 2021, it premiered on Netflix. Then, it only lasted a month on Broadway — 59 performances, to be precise. Despite negative reviews at the time, the musical is already being reconsidered.

Jeanna de Waal played the royal, telling TODAY she hoped audiences found it “wildly entertaining.” She added, “I hope people take away just how much love and passion the creative team had for Diana in making this.” If you, too, love Diana, you might enjoy seeing her life told in cheeky but heartfelt songs.

‘The Crown’ (2016-present)

“The Crown” isa historical Netflix series that documents the life of Queen Elizabeth II and the political (and personal) events that shaped her reign as Queen. Fans awaited Princess Diana’s debut in Season Four of the show, knowing the drama she would bring. Emma Corrin gives a fantastic performance as Princess Diana in Season Four, with Elizabeth Debicki taking over in future seasons.

‘Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy’ (2017)

This Princess Diana documentary focuses on a perspective that many people want to hear from. Prince William and Prince Harry exclusively open up on camera about their mother, Princess Diana. They both give interviews and talk openly about their mom in this insightful documentary, paying tribute to her life and legacy.

‘Princess Diana: Tragedy or Treason?’ (2017)

Diana died in a car accident in Paris in Aug. 1997. Akin to any tragic death of extremely public and beloved figures, there’s some speculation as to whether Princess Diana’s death was accidental or not. In this documentary, streaming on Amazon Prime ,the details of her death are examined, decisively proving the conspiracy theories of her death untrue.

‘Diana’ (2013)

What did the last two years of Diana’s life look like? She and Charles divorced, officially, in 1996, and she died in 1997. Naomi Watts plays the Diana as she transitions from princess to humanitarian — a role she doesn’t get to occupy for long.

‘The Queen’ (2006)

“The Queen” is less about Diana, and more about the reverberations her death had on the royal family, the United Kingdom and beyond. In the wake of her death, a mourning people looked to the Queen.Helen Mirren won an Oscar for her performance as Queen Elizabeth II contemplating when, how and if to address the public.

This movie made for TV, based on the book with the same title by Anna Pasternak, tells the story of Diana’s dwindling marriage to Prince Charles — and her consequential affair with her former riding instructor, Captain James Hewitt. Hewitt collaborated with Pasternak to write the 1994 novel, an account of their five year-long affair.

“Diana: Her True Story” (1993)

This biopic, like “Princess in Love,” came out while Diana was alive, amid the media frenzy that erupted after she and Charles separated. The biopic is based off of Andrew Morton’s 1992 explosive book “Diana: Her True Story.” After Diana died, Morton revealed that Diana was the book’s primary source, per Frontline. Serena Scott Thomas plays Diana.

‘Charles & Diana: A Royal Love Story’ (1982)

Another made-for-TV movie, this early film tells of the marriage and the initial period following the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

All The Best Books Releasing In August

Published

on

Clara Johnson might be best known for her temper, but she can also commune with trickster spirits called enigmas. She’s required to use her gift, if it can be called that, to help anyone who asks, but the enigmas drive a hard bargain, a fact she knows all too well. She’s indebted to one such enigma and fears she’ll never be free. When the enigma asks Clara to steal a magical ring from an opera singer, she suspiciously agrees. The ring has been enthralling poor Black folk, and Clara is determined to set them free. However, the ring’s power makes it impossible to steal alone, so Clara gathers a group of those similarly gifted to help her steal it: Aristotle, who can shape-shift into other people; Jesse Lee, who can manipulate memories; Israel, a handsome jazz musician who enchants with his music; and Clara’s roommate Zelda, an albino martial arts master, and the only ungifted person in the group. If these five pull off the heist, they might be free to live their own lives again. Set in 1920s Washington, DC, this historical fantasy novel is steeped in Black history, culture, and folklore. It’s a high-stakes, delightful read with fantastic characters. I quite enjoyed the audiobook narrated by Shayna Small. —Margaret Kingsbury
