Naomi Watts has opened up about her biggest role yet – playing Princess Diana in her new movie Diana.
“It’s a little scary playing possibly one of the most famous women of our time,” she told Celebuzz
“There’s so much information out there that people are inevitably going to make comparisons.”
The movie, which is currently in production, saw Naomi undergo a transformation for the role, including six weeks of dialogue training, four wigs, a prosthetic nose and fittings for clothes that belonged to Diana herself.
“It was really very difficult for her,” Naomi says of Diana’s love life. “She’s definitely someone who had to fight for happiness, but it’s impressive that she did, and that she kept fighting for it given the circumstances.”
