Now, with filming recently wrapped on 2013’s Diana, the star is opening up to Manhattan magazine about this risky new role.
“Playing Princess Diana was the hardest thing I’ve done,”; Watts tells Manhattan magazine’s editor-in-chief Cristina Greeven Cuomo. “I wanted to try to embody her and get the essence of her.”;
Watts goes on to say that the film “concentrates on [Diana’s] love affair with a Pakistani heart surgeon,”; a story she admits to have been completely ignorant about prior to reading the script. And like much of the late Diana’s life, Watts admits, “That love story ended sadly.”;
