"...I found myself constantly asking for permission to carry on. 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."
-Naomi Watts on playing Diana, Princess of Wales
Are you going to head to the theaters or skip this one? There is a huge amount of pressure on Naomi Watts; I almost feel badly for her. Her quote (above) is interesting—I don't know how to digest it. What do you guys make of it?
I am a huge Princess Diana fan and I'll definitely be seeing this movie, no matter the reviews. It will be nice to at least remember the life of someone so beloved who spent so much of her energy helping others. We need more "Princess Dianas:" humanitarians, volunteers, aid workers, encouragers—those who rally the troops for those in need.
(Nerd fact: her name wasn't actually Princess Diana; it was Diana, Princess of Wales. And, she absolutely hated being called Princess Di. Told you I'm a nerd. :).
