    If this goes ahead (because we reaaaally need yet another film/documentary/book about Diana... ) then I hope they go the whole hog and include her own affairs, the married men she shagged/stalked, the marriages she broke up, the craziness, the extreme manipulation of the press and the doe-eyed 'victim of the media' act that she fell back on when she felt in need of some extra public sympathy, etc, etc.

    Does it show that I wasn't a fan and am sick of her near-canonisation?

    no, you need to add a comment about how 40 year old women can do IVF with their own eggs. and maybe add sluce's bad egg pic for good measure. just like catnip.

    I would be very surprised if they mention her affairs and her unholy like behaviour in this film. I think Diana will always be painted as the victim of the media..

    But Noami Watts is a great actress and might make this film wathable.

    What's even left to say about her, her whole life has been laid out there over and over and over again.


    Naomi Watts is far too pretty to play her. She could play Princess Charlene if she wants to be a princess.

    But who is going to play the Wicked Witch???

    At that stage of her life, when she was wearing stuff like this, Diana had a better haircut. She ditched that feathery stuff eventually.

    Wow. Everybody in the crew and cast gasped because Naomi looks exactly like Diana. Every day she looks more like Diana, and she's already a dead ringer of Diana to begin with. Nobody can get over the fact how Naomi looks exactly like Diana. <insert sarcasm> This looks like the whole Lohan/Liz Taylor shit all over again.
    This chick looks nothing like Diana either. Too old, too short, her nose is too small and so on and so forth.

    The nose is all wrong and the teeth too. They should have given her a prosthetic and dentures for the role.

    PIC: Naomi Watts Looks Identical to Princess Diana in Blue Suit

    Double take!

    There was no debating that blue was a striking color on the late Princess Diana, and producers for her upcoming biopic seem to agree.

    On the set of Diana in London on Wednesday, a princess-playing Naomi Watts was a spitting image of the beloved royal in a bright blue suit reminiscent of the same color-coordinated outfit that Diana wore at a Core Trust event in London on September 19, 1990.

    Since filming began in July, the flick's wardrobe department has decked out Watts in several copy-cat looks, including the pink button-down shirt that Diana wore to Sarajevo to meet land mine victims in 1997 and the memorable cerulean one-shoulder dress she donned at a charity appearance in 1996.

    "It is such an honor to be able to play this iconic role," Watts, 43, said in February after the casting was announced. "Princess Diana was loved across the world and I look forward to rising to the challenge of playing her on screen."

    Directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel and written by Stephen Jeffreys, the film will focus on the last two years in the life of Prince William and Harry's beloved mother; after famously divorcing Prince Charles, Diana reinvented herself as a global humanitarian and was on the path to self-fulfillment before she died at age 36 in an August 1997 car crash.
