Naomi Watts felt 'pressure' portraying Princess Diana

Dec 13 2012, 10:11am CST | by

Naomi Watts felt ''pressure'' about playing Princess Diana.

The 44-year-old actress has just finished shooting upcoming biopic 'Diana' about the late British royal's life - who died in a Paris car crash in 1997 - but admits she originally tried to turn down the role as she felt scared of what people's reactions would be to her portraying such a popular figure.

Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres show, Naomi admitted: ''I tried to say no. But I guess every time I said no, I rang back up and said, 'Oh, I changed my mind.'

''I think just the pressure, because we all feel we know her so well. The pressure of that is scary, because everybody thinks, 'Oh, you're not the right look or whatever'.''

After previously confessing she was ''dreading'' starring in the film, once she started to play the part Naomi found the princess had a ''great sense of humour''.

She added: ''She was kind of a rebel, in a really kind of good way''.

The blonde beauty - who has just received a Golden Globe Best Actress nomination for 'The Impossible' - recently revealed she wanted to do justice to the beloved mother of Princes William and Harry, and tried to stay true to her story.

She explained: ''It's very difficult to play someone who had such a deep impact and left such a lasting memory on the public.

''Our memory of her is still very fresh and you have to be respectful of that. It's also more complicated and sensitive when you take into account her two sons. But I want to do her justice and tell her story truthfully.''

St. Vincent Review: Bill Murray Is Mesmerizing

Oct 24 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Bill Murray is Vincent and it’s safe to say he’s about as far away from being a Saint as can be when St. Vincent commences. And also, to describe his latest classic Murray character as a curmudgeon in this dark comedy is merely just the beginning of how we’d label this guy. He’s a laundry list of personality traits that are an utter delight for the audience to witness, but less than enjoyable for, frankly, anyone who has to meet him, or much less do so ...

New York Film Festival 2014: Birdman Movie Review

Oct 15 2014 5:13pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Closing out this year's New York Film Festival is the latest film from Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu, Birdman. It’s not often that an art-house director takes on the superhero genre, but this is a special case where Iñárritu is not really adapting a fictional comic book character (I mean, all superheroes are fictional, right?), but rather a look at celebrity and how that clashes with art and commerce. Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) manages to be o ...
