Love Naomi Watts. Humble and modest; pretty good actor too.

Naomi is a great actress, but c’mon, she is too old to play Diana is she not? Age is more important than resemblance, I think.

# 3

Considering Dians was only 36 when she died…..yeah I think so

# 4

Huh what I don’t remember Diana ever dying her hair brown…

# 5

since when was princess di brunette? this will be interesting to watch

# 6

What a piece of sh*t!
Diana never was brunette and Naomi is too old to play her.

# 7

Naomi lacks the charisma that Diana had. All of the stills with her in them lack Diana’s presence. She is playing Diana yet seems to have missed out on her essence. Gonna be an embarrassing movie for Naomi.

# 8

Are they kidding? Naomi Watts is one of the dullest actresses ever, and she has nowhere near the grace and poise of Diana. This is a horrible choice. I wonder who she slept with to get this role because I cannot imagine here being someones first choice. Bleh!

She looks a lot like Liz Hurley.

True true Naomi is pretty dull.

she looks like vanessa paradis with that hair!

She doesn’t look like Diana, is too old and isn’t a good actress, why they chose her? I can’t understand!

Naomi is too short and too old to play Diana and we all know that. The director must be blind. Not in a single still I have seen by now does Naomi resembles Diana. Not in a signle one!

Unrecognizable! Why in brunette? Maybe to hide Lady Di from Paparazzi flashes ?
This biopic smells a wrong way, straight to DVD even with Miss Watts!

Wow…i’ve never seen Naomi Watts as a brunette before! She looks really lovely. i still think she’s a great actress and people should stop saying she looks nothing like Dianna because that’s obviously not the whole point of the film.

@Maria: Yeah, they should cast Beyonce for this movie, resemblance means nothing when you make a movie about such an iconic person. LOL

I like Naomi, I too think she is too old to play Diana now (like Nicole Kidman who is too old to play Princess Grace). But Naomi does have good acting chops, so hoping that she does a great job and makes us forget the age and height issues and miscasting.

That said, don’t remember Diana ever being a brunette (maybe she wore it as a disguise?). But Naomi should consider going brunette, she looks great and makes her edgier, less cookie-cutter blond.

Brunette? Seriously?
Who is the director of this sh*t??

God, you people are harsh. Diana donned a wig to be incognito. And Watts is not a bad actress. She is too short, but they can work a little move magic on that like they did Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia.

awww sayid?? is that you? OMG!!!
