Could You See Scarlett Playing Princess Diana?


There's this absurd-sounding rumor going around that Michael Bay (Transformers, The Rock, Armageddon) will be directing a biopic about Princess Diana — with Scarlett Johansson first in line for the title role.

Entertaining the extraordinarily slim chance that this could possibly happen, what do you think of Scarlett playing the Lady Di?

she's to pretty to do that. i love Princess Di, but lets admit it - she wasn't anything like Scarlett.

No, she would not be good casting. I'd cast Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchette, or Kate Winslet.

no, no, no. she hasn't got the smile for it (or too much...) and ahm... too huge boobies :)

I don't think Scarlett has that "air" about her to even consider playing Princess Diana...

I agree that Scarlett cannot effectively play Princess Diana. I also agree that Keira Knightly would be able to play her with little or no effort needed. She carries herself with the beauty and grace that Princess Diana did.

No way, firstly to Michael Bay. What would he have to offer to a Princess Di biopic? That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. And of course, no to ScarJo. She's too voluptuous, and quite frankly don't think she's a good enough actress. I think Kelly McDonald would be an excellent choice to play Diana. I think she is very talented.

uggg no way! I don't see her as Diana in any way. That would seriously be a disgrace to her memory and id be ticked to see a blond didzt play such an amazing woman.

mmm I seriously couln´t imagine her playing Princess Di. As many posters have said, Cate Blanchett would be great on that role.

That's almost as ridiculous as Nicholas Cage playing Superman...

Pinot, I agree. She could fill the role, but she's not the best pick. Kate Winslet would be a better choice.

She lacks class! I never understood why people are so obsessed with her... Maybe the Marilyn comparisons? which I think are a stretch. However, it is just a movie. I doubt it will be the lasting impression people have of Di.

Scarlet *could* play Diana, but I don't think she's the best choice. For one thing, her body build is completely different than Diana's was. I'd much rather see Kate Winslet or even Kiera Knightly do it.

Hey swwonder that's actually a good recommendation! I remember Sophia in Tristan + Isolde! She was pretty good...

can't stand her... I don't understand the world's obsession with Ms. Johansson.

Ok, my suggestion for Princess Di would probably be Sophia Myles, she's a decent actress, has similar features to Diana and would, in my opinion, be able to play the different ages.

No, she could not pull it off. You'd need someone classy like Cate Blanchett.

To be frank. I don't think ScarJo can pull it off... Not that she's a bad actress or anything. First of all, superficially speaking, she doesn't resemble Diana in height etc. Come on, playing Princess Di is a major role. Many people all over the globe still idolise her. So, if someone who looks nothing like her, is going to play her, then they better be a jolly good actress. An i think ScarJo isn't at "that level", especially when compared to actresses like Blanchett and Winslet. They have more acting experience. And as someone mentioned, most of the drama in Diana's life happened at a later stage. So her (ScarJo) age limits her a little bit. I think Cate, Kate and maybe Keira could be WAY better. Or even a "fresh faced" unknown making a big-screen debut could be good. But that would require brilliant casting... An if they're considering ScarJo, then who know's. :)

Love Scarlett as an actor but no, I could not see her playing Lady Dina. Winslet or Blanchett would be perfect for the part :JUMPIN:

I really can't imagine it, I think they need to go with an English actress (and an english director). Though saying that I was pleasantly surprised by Anne Hathaway in Becoming Jane. Scarlett is a beautiful bombshell, she's not regal. Oh I agree with silly pickle, Kate Winslet would be a great Princess Di!
