Agyness Deyn Wants To Play Princess Diana! But Would She Fare Better Than Naomi Watts?

Agyness Deyn says that she would jump at the chance to play the Princess of Wales in a movie despite photos of Naomi Watts in Princess Dianna costume. 43-year-old actress, Naomi is playing Diana in Caught in Flight, a film that's set to hit cinemas next year. The film will focus on Diana’s love life and campaigning work. Let’s be honest though, we’ll be watching it to see how big Naomi's hair is.

We are excited to announce that photos released today show Naomi with a very authentic Di bouffant. The actress looks uncannily like the princess in costume. In fact, her co-star Naveen Andrews (ex-Lost) says that she is the only actress who could play the part. He told Press Association: "I don't think anyone else could have done it. There's no one else."

This isn’t stopping Aggy hankering after the role. The just-married supermodel told The Telegraph that she wouldn’t be able to turn it down. She said: “Princess Diana was a wonderful woman and I’d love to play her. I know Naomi Watts obviously has been given the role, but if it came up again, I don’t think I could say no.”

Hmm… Naomi does make a very true to life Diana, but we think it would be totes fun to see Aggy drop her edgy-Coachella vibes for big hair and bigger shoulders.  Imagine her model angles on royal memorabilia!
