Naomi Watts may look the part, but that doesn't make filling the shoes of Princess Diana any easier!!!
The Oscar-nominated actress sat down with Ellen Degeneres to discuss her upcoming role as Di and said that while the pressure is high, she couldn’t resist.
"I tried to say no, but I guess every time I said no, I rang back up and said I changed my mind. I think it's just the pressure because we all feel we know her so well. The pressure of that is scary because everybody thinks, oh, you're not the right look or whatever.”
And like most other serious actresses, the 44-year old starlet did some extensive research on the late heir to the throne.
Did that research include meeting with her closest living family? Not quite.
During the premiere of The Impossible last night, Naomi revealed to a source:
“No, no, no. They’re not available for research and things like that!”
You mean William and Harry don’t have any free time to help out Hollywood? HA!!
Don't worry Naomi!!! The pictures from the set and your past work tell us that this flick will be ROYALLY EPIC.
