Naomi Watts Shops the Day Away in Spain

Posted Tuesday October 9, 2012 11:28 AM GMT

Lazing about in the Spanish sunshine, Naomi Watts was shopping with friends in the streets of Madrid on Monday (October 8).

The "King Kong" actress looked beautiful in a peasant top, skinny jeans, and flat,s as she chatted with her pals.

Next summer, you can see the 44-year-old actress in the role of a lifetime, starring as the late Princess Diana herself in the biopic "Diana."

The British-born star has some big shoes to fill, and that fact hasn't been lost on her. She told The Daily Express, "I am dreading the reaction amongst the public to my playing her. You know that people will complain that you don`t look enough like her, that you`re not tall enough, all those things."

Naomi understands the meticulous care she has to give to accurately portraying the beloved Princess of Wales: "It's very difficult to play someone who had such a deep impact and left such a lasting memory on the public. Our memory of her is still very fresh and you have to be respectful of that."
