Perfect Casting! Naomi Watts Looks Just Like Princess Diana (PHOTOS)

In a recent interview, Brit-born, Australian-raised actress Naomi Watts admitted she was “absolutely terrified” to be taking on the role of the late Princess Di in the 2013 biopic Caught in Flight. “It’s going to be a tough one. It’s a big beast to take on,” the actress told the Daily Mail. “I just try to do my best.”

While we totally understand Naomi’s fear — portraying a real person is always scary, let alone someone so adored by the public — we’re definitely expecting royal results! In fact, judging by these on-set photos snapped on Sunday, July 1, Naomi already has the look down pat!

The Oscar nominee, seen recreating one Diana’s many arrivals to the Royal Opera House, looks uncannily like the Princess of Wales as she makes her graceful walk down the red carpet.

Do you agree that Naomi looks just like Diana or do you think it’s a poor imitation of The People’s Princess?
