Lots of people went to the movies to see "The Nun" this weekend, it was #1 at the box office, grossing $53.5 million! It's the 1st movie that's been able to unseat "Crazy Rich Asians" in 3 weeks. And that nun looks legit scary, right? But wait 'til you see the actress who plays the nun in real life. Check out her pics below. And here are some fun facts about her...
-Her name is Bonnie Aarons.
-She's a native Angeleno, born in Los Angeles in 1979.
-She attended acting school in New York City.
-Because of her unique appearance & nose, she was frequently told that she shouldn't pursue an acting career. (Luckily, she didn't let the naysayers stop her from following her dreams. I say, the thing that makes you special is your uniqueness. So never feel bad that you're different. And never let others make you feel bad because you're different.)
-She's played "The Nun" 3 times...1st in "The Conjuring 2," 2nd in "Annabelle: Creation" and now in "The Nun." Bonnie says that she feels "honored" that the character now has her own film.
-Before "The Nun," she had already been scaring us for years with roles in horror movies like "I Know Who Killed Me," "Drag Me To Hell," "The Conjuring 2" and "Mulholland Drive."
-She played Barnoness Joy von Troken in "The Princess Diaries" and "The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement." She recently said in an interview that she wants a "The Princess Diaries 3" to happen and thinks that the movie's star, Anne Hathaway, should direct.
