Best friends from a land down under, portray iconic royal figures this year in film. Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman have Hollywood buzzing about Princesses!
Naomi Watts brings Princess Diana back to life, in the much talked about biopic Diana. (Talked about but not necessarily praised) The film has not received the best reviews so far. “Boring” “Dull” and “Pointless” are adjectives being thrown around to describe the film. Nevertheless it is interesting to see such a sweet actress like Naomi Watts play Diana who was equally if not more warm hearted and loving in real life.
In contrast with Nicole Kidman who embodies Princess Grace of Monaco who was a bit icy in comparison with Diana, as many would say the same about Kidman as well. Although the personality of Grace, Princess of Monaco was not as inviting as Diana’s the talk about the film itself is sounding a bit more positive than Diana’s. After the trailer was released last week it has definitely created a buzz and the time of its release some would say has been strategically set up in time for the Oscars, but we will find out next month what the critics have to say.
Overall, it is interesting to see these besties both from humble beginnings play the roles of these highly publicized beauties from not so humble beginnings at the same time. Both Princesses suffered from untimely deaths that rocked the entire planet. Regardless of the reviews both films receive, they definitely will have solid audiences due to the impact Grace and Diana had on the world.
Grace, known to be as cold as ice and Diana as wholehearted as they come interestingly enough act as great mirrors of the two Actresses roles in Hollywood.
We hope that their friendship only grows stronger as they support each other after their critics have their way with them this year.
