Naomi Watts “walked out of an interview” in which she was set to discuss her Princess Diana biopic, according to British radio host Simon Mayo.

Watts was on BBC Radio 5’s live show “Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review” to promote Diana when she reportedly cut the sit-down short.

Mayo tweeted on Wednesday, “A first for me and @wittertainment as Naomi Watts walked out of an interview! She seemed a tad uncomfortable with the questions. Shame.”

Asked by a fellow reporter what he did to upset the actress, the host replied, “The honest answer is I have no idea. You know my hectoring style is always a problem.”

Mayo told another Twitter follower that he “didn’t express any opinion” about the controversial film, saying he’s “baffled” as to why Watts left the interview.

Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for Watts for details on what happened.
