Princess Michael wants Scarlett for film

Princess Michael of Kent is desperate for Scarlett Johansson to star in a film of her latest book.

Princess Michael believes she is "ugly" enough to play frumpy wife Catherine De Medici reports Femalefirst.

The Princess's book The Serpent And The Moon is based on the love triangle between young French King Henri II, his long-suffering wife Catherine de Medici and his older mistress Diane De Poitiers.

She said: "I imagine Cate Blanchett for Diane and Jude Law as Henri - very broody and handsome. And as Catherine de Medici, can't you see Scarlett Johansson? I think it would be quite easy to make her appear ugly."
