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.''
