‘Diana’: Naomi Watts As Princess Diana Movie Trailer (Video)

Naomi Watts As Princess Diana

The first official trailer for ‘Diana‘ has been released.

The clip reveals the first footage of Naomi Watts in the role of Diana, the late Princess of Wales.

Watts has described her role in the film as “the hardest thing [she's] done”.

“I don’t want to get caught up in mimicry – that’s the worst thing,” she told Manhattan magazine last year. “I was to try to embody her and get the essence of her. Those things are really important to me.”

Naomi Watts isn’t the only celeb taking on a high-profile role. Jamie Foxx became Ray Charles. Forest Whitaker morphed into Idi Amin. Helen Mirren was Queen Elizabeth. And, most recently, Michael Douglas embodied Liberace.

Diana will be released in cinemas in late 2013.
