Here's another look at Naomi Watts as the late Princess of Wales in Diana

May. 23, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Nothing has come out of the biopic DIANA since early last year when we got our first look at Naomi Watts are the late Princess of Wales. They were just set photos, but still gave us an idea of whether the actress fit the bill or not.

Our first official look of the actress in the role shows Watts actually in make-up and looking more the part. The film centers on, "Diana’s covert love affair with Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews, LOST), a Pakistani heart surgeon. This happened in the last two years of her life, before she met Dodi Fayed, and the need for privacy led to her meeting her lover in disguises. This gave her a sense of living an anonymous life, but her incredible worldwide fame became an issue."

Entertainment One just picked up US distribution to the flick after it was screened in its entirety at Cannes. Not sure if Watts performance is creating Best Actress Oscar buzz, however, Deadline lists Judi Dench for PHILOMENA, Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts for AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, Oprah Winfrey for THE BUTLER, and Nicole Kidman for GRACE OF MONACO as being names that are catching some attention.

A trailer for DIANA should be soon to come. Check out the photo below.

Love Naomie Watts but I'm not a fan of biopics, so I will probably not be seeing this...

So this and the Grace Kelly film with Nicole Kidman might become duelling movies. While Naomi Watts is a very good actress, I can't help but wonder if someone like Charlize Theron would be better suited to playing Princess Diana. Not a knock on Watts, though.

I'd argue that Theron would be a much better choice for Grace Kelly than Nicole Kidman. Kelly was renowned as a natural beauty, and Kidman hasn't been looking too natural recently.

It's freakin' eerie

I've always like Naomi Watts as an actress, but she nails this.

Also: oh great, Julia Roberts is up for another Academy award for essentially playing herself? Oh joy and fracking rapture. [/sarcasm]

Didn't Julia Roberts win an Oscar for her portrayal as herself in Ocean's Twelve? Hehe.
