Monaco: Nicole Kidman says she understands why Princess Grace's children are reacting this way
"This film should have never been made": Princess Stephanie
Speaking to Nice Matin on the weekend, the princess said that the drama, which stars Nicole Kidman as the actress turned princess, "should have never been made."
The youngest daughter of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace has not seen the film and claims she will “certainly not” see it either.
But she did read the script and saw the trailer and says that they were enough to upset her, revealing publicly for the first time that the film is far too critical of the Principality and her father.
"If one wishes to make a movie based on historical facts then they must stick to the facts," continued Princess Stephanie. "This film does not praise Monaco or the great man that was my father, Prince Rainier."
Nicole Kidman responded to the criticism by telling the Daily Mail: “I know they’re upset. I would be, too, if it were my mother. It’s a child’s job to protect their parent, and in that regard, I get it. I get why the children are upset.
“I can’t say much other than that I have great respect and regard for their mother. It’s not meant to be a biopic. I certainly did my best to honour everything that was real and truthful in it.”
Kidman also revealed that, following early claims to the contrary, U.S. producer/distributor Harvey Weinstein has in fact agreed to distribute the film in the U.S.
Gaumont Pathé is yet to release the schedule for the film’s release in France.
