1.Princess Diana and Tilda Swinton
This might come as a surprise to many, but Tilda Swinton and Lady Diana Spencer knew each other since their childhood. They both attended the same school, West Heath Girls' School in Sevenoaks, England, and hung out together, long before Diana became the Princess of Wales. Fondly referred to as the “People’s Princess,” Princess Diana was known for many things, but most notably for her genuine kindness, dedication, and affection towards the general public. Though she left us over two decades ago, she continues to be remembered as so much more than just a member of the British Royal Family. Much like Diana, Swinton went on to become a queen of the screen. From arthouse films to Hollywood blockbusters, the statuesque actress has been an enchanting presence in cinema for several decades. Swinton’s debut film was the 1986 Derek Jarman’s Caravaggio. Since then, she has had wide-ranging roles in critically acclaimed movies such as Orlando, Female Perversions, The Deep End, Thumbsucker, and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. She even scored an Academy Award for her role in the 2007 legal thriller Michael Clayton.
