Raise your hand if you already knew that Bonnie Aarons was in 'The Nun' AND 'The Princess Diaries'. We have a Genovian pear for you.

The Nun began terrifying fans in late summer, with the fifth installment in The Conjuring universe hitting theatres in early September.

Fans will recognise the film's lead, Taissa Farmiga from the American Horror Story anthology. It's the actress behind the demonic nun, Valak, that fans may know from their childhood.

Bonnie Aarons plays Valak The Nun, first in The Conjuring 2, then in The Nun.

She's popped up in some of your favourite horror films over the years, but you might also recognise her as the actress who played Baroness Joy von Troken in The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2.

All the Princess Diaries heads out there (and I'm sure there are many) will recall Bonnie as the Baroness who schemes with her husband to root for Mia's downfall.

People are absolutely LIVING for this cinematic realisation.

And Bonnie Aarons even said that she would love to work on another Princess Diaries movie and thinks Anne Hathaway should direct. Okay, yes to all of these things. I'm eating a Genovian pear AS WE SPEAK.

Seeing The Nun and then immediately going home to rewatch The Princess Diaries is a whole entire mood. Don't @ me.

Anyway, now that you know the scary nun from The Nun is also the severe Baroness from The Princess Diaries, exactly how many of your friends are you going to text with this information? Tell us in the comments!
