    According to the actor, the Princess of Wales was interested in playing a role "in the same kind of capacity as Whitney."

    “The studio liked the idea of doing a Bodyguard 2 [with Princess Diana] in the same kind of capacity as Whitney,” Kevin shared with PeopleTV. “Nobody really knew that for about a year," he added.

    “I just remember her being incredibly sweet on the phone when she asked the questions,” Kevin recalled.

    “She goes, ‘Are we going to have like a kissing scene?’ But she said it in a very respectful — she was a little nervous because I think her life was very governed.”

    Unfortunately, the studio ended up ditching the idea before it ever came to fruition.

    Now, thanks to this brand new information, we'll have to live with the thought of how great Princess Diana would have been as a bonafide movie star. Thanks, Kevin, NBD.
