Nicole Kidman plays Grace Kelly in a new film, but there's one person who won't be gracing the film with his blessing- Prince Albert of Monaco!
The Palace of Monaco released a statement blasting Grace of Monaco as being completely distorted. The Palace says:
"The Princely family wishes to emphasise that this film is by no means a biopic. [It contains] major historical untruths and a series of purely fictional scenes.
It recounts one rewritten and needlessly 'glamorised' page in the history of the Principality of Monaco and its family.
The Palace of Monaco cannot accept that the producers of this film imply they have received Their Highnesses' support in any way whatsoever, since this is not the case."
Sure, Prince. Next thing, you'll tell us Abraham Lincoln never fought any vampires!
Sounds like either the film struck a nerve because of a negative portrayal of the Palace- or it really is completely dramatized.
Our money is on the latter, seeing as it is, you know, a movie!
Of course it's glamorized! That's what happens when movie stars play real people!
Though it is pretty tough to imagine over-glamorizing Grace Kelly! You don't get much more fabulous than that!
