Naomi Watts: 'I Felt Diana's Presence'
Naomi Watts flashes a smile while arriving on set of her latest film St. Vincent de Van Nuys on Monday afternoon (August 19) in New York City.
The 44-year-old actress was joined in the scene by her co-star Bill Murray.
Naomi recently revealed she felt Princess Diana gave her permission to play her in Diana from beyond the grave.
“There were definitely moments when I felt Diana‘s presence – I dreamed about her a lot, too, and that’s a first,” Naomi expressed (via The Guardian) “I kept wondering to myself: ‘Would she have liked it?’ So I found myself constantly asking for her permission to carry on. I had saturated myself with Diana and her life and I felt this enormous responsibility of playing this iconic woman. It felt like I was spending a lot of time with her. There was one particular moment when I felt her permission was granted. That won’t sound right in print, I know.”
