The Academy Award winning director said Charles' former ex-wife, Prince Of Wales, was worried about public perception about a cushion on the screen because her life was very governed.
But he assured her fears and said to Diana: & # 39; Yes, there will be a little bit of that, but we can make up for that too. & # 39;
The actor Yellowstone also revealed that Sarah Ferguson, or the Duchess of York, also known as Fergie, was an instrument to bring him into contact with the deceased princess.
& # 39; I always respect Sarah, because she is the one who started the conversation between me and Diana & # 39 ;, said Kevin.

But Diana died tragically before she could read the script after her car crashed into a Paris tunnel on August 31, 1997.
