The British are so POLITE! LOLz!!

Naomi Watts seems to US like the obvious choice to play Princess Diana in the new biopic about the royal, with her blond hair, blue eyes, and lovely British lilt.

But the actress turned down the role TWICE before saying yes, not because she didn’t think she could do it — come on, we’re talking about an Oscar nominee here, y’all! — but because she worried what Diana’s sons, Princes Harry and William, might think!

Naomi said recently:

"The biggest reason that made me pause was how the princes were going to be feel about this. There was actually quite an eerie moment in London when I did see Prince William in a restaurant, and I got very nervous, because if I caught his eye I didn’t want to interpret a look and think he had a negative feeling about this idea, so I made sure not to look…. I do care deeply about how the princes feel, of course. I am a mum of two boys. But it was a story that was bound to be told at some point, and it’s possibly fresher than people expected.”

Seems very Diana of her to consider how her actions affect others!

That's method acting for you!

    She was born in England and has a British passport. That means she can be described as British, even if she has moved at some stage to live in Australia.

    That was a very considerate thing of her to do and I respect her for it.
