Aubrey Plaza says Kristen Stewart was infected with Covid-19

As COVID-19 cases soar all across the country, Aubrey Plaza revealed that Kristen Stewart contracted the virus on the set of their movie Happiest Season.

The actress added, 'I think a bunch of people on our set got sick. "I didn't, thank God".

Aubrey Plaza, who has been receiving a lot of fan love for her performance in Happiest Season, recently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about the Christmas film.

And according to star Aubrey Plaza, numerous cast and crew got sick, including Kristen Stewart.

"When I was leaving the set and going to the airport on February 29th or something, I said to one of the transpo guys, I was like, 'Do you think I should be anxious about this virus thing?' " Plaza recalled. "I'm not going to lie, I wanted it too, very badly", Plaza said.

The two stars filmed the project back in February and Aubrey let it slip that her castmate fell ill as the shoot wrapped. "That s-'s been in Pittsburgh for a long time.' Anyway, he was right".

Because all this happened so early it seems likely that there's simply an assumption that the virus that moved through the set was COVID-19. "But I didn't write the thing, and I didn't direct the thing. I'm just sort of reading everything that I can and then forgetting it, because it's kind of a really internalized story", the actress added.

Kristen Stewart is reportedly dating musician St. Vincent, who broke up with Cara Delevingne last summer. There are some things you just don't have control over, ' Plaza said.

Stewart agreed. "I think I've wished to see a gay Christmas rom-com my whole life", she told PEOPLE.
