It's strange calling yourself
~ Betty Elms with Rita about to call "Diane."
You want me to make this easy for you?  No fucking way!  It's not gonna be.  It's not easy for me!
~ Diane throwing Camilla Rhodes out of her apartment

Diane Selwyn is the protagonist villain in David Lynch's 2001 psychological thriller "Mulholland Drive." She is introduced to the story as Betty Elms. However, in the last fourth of the film, her real name is revealed to be Diane Selwyn. She is played both times by Naomi Watts. 

About

In her "Betty" persona, she is shown to be sweet, innocent and accomodating. She takes in an amnesiac woman named Rita after her car crashes. Betty goes to Hollywood to become an actress, and once again meet Rita. She stays in her Aunt Ruth's apartment, while her Aunt is away.  She goes to an audition held by the director Adam Kesher. However, she becomes intimidated by Camilla Rhodes, who lipsyncs a song called "Every little star".  Betty runs off, and returns to help Rita find the apartment of a friend named "Diane Selwyn".  Upon arriving, a neighbor informs them that she switched apartments with Diane and that she hasn't seen Diane for a while. They break in, only to find Diane dead.  Arriving home, Rita blames herself, and puts on a blonde wig, simliar to Betty's hair style to disguise herself.  With this on, Betty and Rita have intercourse. The two go to a myserious night club and listen to a lipsynced Spanish version of Roy Orbison's "Crying".

In her "Diane" persona, she is shown to be a drug addict, who was infatuated with her room mate Camilla Rhodes, until Camilla had an encounter with both a Waiter named George and Adam Kesher.  As a result, Diane's acting career was lost to Camilla, who managed to secure her small film roles as an act of charity. When she arrives at the drug addled Diane's apartment, Diane makes inappropriate advances. She follows Camilla to the set of her new film, motivated by jealouly of both Camilla and Adam.  

Later that night, Diane is invited to dinner at Adam's house. There she meets Adam's mother Coco, who reminds her of her land lord. Adam and Camilla's status as an engaged couple make Diane orders a hit on Camilla. it is revealed that Diane changed apartments to get away from the police. The crone causes Diane to realize what she's done, as she learns that Camilla is dead, and then committing suicide out of guilt. The final shot shows the woman from the nightclub, reminding Diane that she never truly loved Camilla, and that even in death, Camilla is superior to her.
