Royal Family Of Monaco Slams Grace Kelly Biopic With Nicole Kidman As "Pointlessly Glamorised And Historically Inaccurate"

Prince Albert of Monaco and his sisters Princess Caroline and Princess Stephanie have slammed the new Grace Kelly biopic starring Nicole Kidman.
Prince Albert was reportedly sent scripts before filming began last fall, but now the royal family have issued a statement saying they do not support the film and that they had no part in making it.
"We have had absolutely no association with this project which is claims to be about the lives of our parents," they said in a statement. "For us, this film does not constitute a biographical work, but portrays only a part of her life and has been pointlessly glamored, and contains important historical inaccuracies as well as scenes of pure fiction."
Kelly, who was one of the world's biggest movie stars, married Albert's father in 1956 and became Princess Grace of Monaco, and in 1982 she died in a car crash. Kidman plays Kelly, and the film focuses on her life in the 1960s and how she helped her husband reform Monaco's tax laws.
Kidman said recently of the movie, "What really interested me about this film is how it covers Grace's transition from film star to Princess in 1962. It reveals her great humanity but also her fears and frailties as she leaves her career behind."
