In Style UK have now posted their behind the scenes look at Naomi’s photoshoot for them, and you can watch it below:
Naomi Watts ‘fixated’ with Princess Diana interview
Naomi Watts became so fixated on Princess Diana’s interview with Martin Bashir she even watched it while working out.
The actress plays the late Princess of Wales in new biopic ‘Diana’ and was so determined to perfect her mannerisms she repeatedly watched footage of her explosive interview, originally broadcast in 1995.
Naomi told Hello! magazine: “I ran the Martin Bashir TV interview so often that it got to the point where I was watching it on my iPhone while I was out jogging
“I had five minutes of her walk, five minutes of her wave, five minutes of her laugh that I’d watch again and again.
“She laughed a lot, actually, and had a cheeky sense of humour and would crack jokes you wouldn’t expect a princess to crack.”
The movie focuses on the last two years of Diana’s life where – following her divorce from Prince Charles – she had a relationship with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan, before her tragic death in a car crash in 1997.
Naomi is on the cover of the Labour Day (August 30th) issue of US regional magazine Hamptons. It comes with a beautiful new photoshoot and an conversational interview with Naomi’s good friend and We Don’t Live Here Anymore co-star Laura Dern. It’s a good read, and I particularly liked reading them talk about St Vincent and their hobbies. Scans and the photoshoot are both in the Gallery for you. You can read the interview through the scans or at the official Hamptons website.
Naomi Watt’s ‘Sunlight Jr.’ Gets U.S. Distribution
Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to Laurie Collyer’s indie drama “Sunlight Jr.,” starring Naomi Watts, Norman Reedus and Matt Dillon.
Gravitas will partner with Samuel Goldwyn Films for the release with a pre-theatrical VOD opening followed by a November theatrical release.
The film screened at Tribeca, where Ronnie Schieb gave it a strong review for Variety: “Incandescent performances by Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon and an unerring grasp of strip-mall-dominated Florida distinguish ‘Sunlight Jr.’ the latest feature from writer-director Laurie Collyer (‘Sherrybaby’).”
Watts’ character, a hard-working convenience store employee with a disabled boyfriend (Dillon), is trapped in a generational cycle of poverty. She becomes pregnant, loses her job and is evicted from the motel they live in.
Collyer directed from her own script. Charlie Corwin, Andrea Roa and Ariel Elia produced with William Dietrich, Simon Fawcett, Joshua Skurla, Dan Klabin and Fisher Stevens exec producing.
Deal was negotiated by Nolan Gallagher of Gravitas and CAA, Untitled Entertainment, and Roger Kass on behalf of the filmmakers.
Earlier this week, Entertainment One set a Nov. 1 U.S. opening for “Diana,” starring Watts as Princess Diana.
