# 1

she really not lookalike diana! where is the beauty?

# 2

Looks nothing like Diana.

# 3

She doesn’t look like Diana! Wth are they thinking??

# 4

Still cant believe that she got the role! Team Jessica Chastain!

# 5

i don’t know if i’ll be able to watch this. Although i was young when princess Diana passed i still remember her work clearly & it feel like i lost someone that i knew.

# 6

@Fer: jessica chastain?? nah.. i think they should have went with an un known actress to keep the movie fresh.. then again i don’t really think anyone can play her

# 7

Naomi is beautiful but no where near Princess Diana

# 8

I have nothing against Naomi Watts, in fact I think she is a lovely and talented actress. But I am just not seeing Princess Diana in these photos.

# 9

NO ONE can play Diana. No one has the presence of that lady. And the Hollywood fake beauties surely can’t hold a candle to the People’s Princess

meh Naomi, meh movie ………………….please

@Shadow X: ‘Meh movie’??? i think teenagers these days need to watch someone who actually made a difference… Not just miley cyrus running around in short shorts picking up her marijuana prescription.

She looks ridiculous. She is totally miscast and even the wardrobe people stink. That necklace she has on with the black dress looks nothing like the actual emerald and diamond choker she wore. See link…

Not even a British accent. What’s the point of this movie. Poor Diana, she’d gag at this farce.

i said it in previous post and I’ll keep sayin’it: Yes Naomi is a good actress but in no way possible does she looks like Diana!
Lady Di trademark was her eyes, shy look and stunning beauty!!

I’ll say it too that if she never met Dodi she would be alive today!
That was some vacation .. On a yacht , the hotel and the fatal
Car crash! When she should of been with her kids … Only thinking
Of herself! She would be alive today! Dodi was the one that told
The body guards to go away! The black dress is when she danced with
John Travolta! And she also had a handful of men coming into Kensington
Palace late at night!

She looks too old to be playing Diana

JJ…yeah, um, the movie is called “Caught in Flight”, so…

It’s Dr. Hasnat Khan, not Kahn. The Pakistani doctor is portrayed by Naveen Andrews in the film.

She is more beautiful than the shallow Diana

Christina @ 07/05/2012 at 5:50 pm

They should have picked Annabelle Wallis.. She played Jane Seymour in Tudors and since then I’ve always thought she’d look perfect as Princess Diana… Naomi Watts looks nothing like her, I don’t know why they always have to cast someone famous even if they don’t look much alike the character….

That’s even worse!!!!

She is so UN-like Diana that the casting is an insult to the late Princess. Diana had huge sad eyes and a very specific way of tilting her head while looking at others. Yes … I see where the similarity is: they are both women. Arghhhh!

Jokergurl @ 07/07/2012 at 2:40 am

Odd casting actually, too short for one reason Diana was 5’10, also I don’t think anymore could really play Diana, she was just one of a kind, just a lovely, elegant person. Diana was regal, she just oozed this, Naomi Watts doesn’t have that, she looks too ordinary.
