    Maybe they are suggesting that was her hair when trying to go incognito? I... I have nothing... This looks like a trainwreck. And Naveen is fug with that hair!

    Yes, she sometimes wore a brown wig for her secret assignations.

    Also her real hair was mouse anyway.

    I still don't think Naomi Watts looks anything like her or even has her expressions in the stills.

    I'm beginning to think the tactic with all these recent bio pics is to choose actors who resemble the subjects the least, but not balancing it with acting talent to make the viewers forget they're not watching the real thing. Hohan, Bonham Carter (sp) and now this twat.

    After looking at these pics, I'm wondering, "why won't Naomi Watts wear blue shoes? and cut her hair?"

    She is really a superb actress, but this is miscasting on an epic level. I don't get it at all. Did Naomi WANT to play Diana? She must've. I suppose from an actress's point of view it's a good part. One thing Di wasn't was dull. ETA: in that respect, I actually miss her. Her threads here would be fantastic entertainment! a pink wig every week!

    I don't get all the hate for her, but I don't get all the worship either. Call me a Diana centrist. I think her childhood was horrific (look at how fucked up ALL her sibs are too--red flag anyone?) and so I've a modicum of sympathy for her. Yup she could be a megabitch. But for her, that was needed to deal w/the royal family. I guess one could say it was a good thing for Kate that Diana taught them a lesson. They are clearly treating Kate as if they believe she might be an actual human being despite her commoner status, and it shows.

    Anyway, this movie looks stupid.

    Looks like a real shitfest. Diana would be spinning in her grave if she knew Camilla was playing her.

    Ive never seen Naomi look so terrible, looks like a joke. I can't be fooled with this crap.

    I can't believe they couldn't give Naomi a Diana wig instead of a Camilla one. The hair issue bugs me, because it was an easy thing to do to help the resemblance and they botched the hell out of it.

    After watching the trailer I will probably see this. Naomi is believable to me, she has the mannerisms and voice down pat. I don't think she was miscast but I will see it to judge.

    I didn't really find the trailer captivating, and I agree that Naomi looks more like Camilla than Diana, especially with the poor choice of wig. I thought this would be about Diana's life in general, but the trailer makes it seem like it's all about her relationship with her lover.

    Is it so hard to make a wig that looks even vaguely like the real thing? This movie will go straight to DVD and the Ditards will snap it up.

    This looks like a very bad Lifetime movie.

    The hair is quite shitty. I don't remember Diana having hair that bad. Doesn't even look like the stylist combed it before scenes.
