What Naomi Watts has done for a first time
- Accepted the role for 21 Grams (2003) without reading the script first.
- Was accompanied by her then-boyfriend Liev Schreiber to the King Kong (2005) US-premiere. It was their first public appearance together.
- Was Fernando Meirelles's first choice for the role of Tessa Quayle in The Constant Gardener (2005), but she declined due to her commitment to King Kong (2005). Rachel Weisz was then given the role.
Naomi Watts's quotes
- 'Pain is such an important thing in life. I think that as an artist you have to experience suffering. It's not enough to have lived it once; you have to relive it. Darkness is not a pejorative thing."
- "There's a lot of skeletons in my closet, but I know what they're wearing. I'm not gonna act all ashamed of it" - on her early career.
- It was total naivety that got me to Hollywood. I thought it was going to happen straight away. I told myself 'give it 5 years, there's no way I'll be here after that if it doesn't happen'. Cut to ten years later!
- On set is where I feel comfortable. The red carpet stuff, talking about the film, explaining your own life, it doesn't come naturally. It's all necessary stuff I suppose but it's not my strength.
- I find myself gravitating towards drama. It interests me. In the books I read, the paintings I like, it's always the darker stuff.
- For the record, I am actually British as well as Australian. People always think I'm Australian but I'm happy for the Brits to claim me back. I'm offering myself up.
- Instead of thinking 'how can I slow the ageing process?' I think 'how can I bend the rules?' Every year you add to your life, you're going to add a different experience to your face.
- Whatever is said about roles drying up, I intend to keep working. Certainly now the roles couldn't be more interesting - playing mothers, divorcees. I think it's going to be exciting to play a mother of teenagers. The longer your life, the deeper it gets.
- My mum put me in drama classes when I was about 14. I'd been going on about it for some time, so maybe it was a way to shut me up.
- "We're so afraid of death in our culture, but I think if we understand it better, then we'll appreciate the life we have more." - in response to 21 Grams (2003).
- "I've had people who've seen 21 Grams (2003) say, 'Wow, you're so brave to be looking like that'. This shocks me. I think that's what an actor's job is, to lose yourself in a role".
- You have to make peace with yourself. The key is to find the harmony in what you have.quoted in the Feb 01, 2005 issue of WOMAN'S WORLD.
- If I have to produce movies, direct movies, whatever to change the way Hollywood treats older women, I'll do it. If I have to bend the rules, I will. If I have to break them, I will.
- Even during my most intense scenes with Sean Penn (in 21 Grams (2003)), we found ways to have fun. Sure, I have my dark moments, but I'm the girl you'll see driving down the highway singing to Blondie.
- I always love being in the company of women. It's all about good conversation and great wine.
- "The biggest place I look for validation is from my mother. That's the little girl in me that will never grow up." - on why not having an Oscar yet doesn't faze her.
- That ad recently turned up in a magazine in Australia. My head is in my hands as I'm sitting at as desk, thinking, 'When can I start using tampons?' I was quite old, but I was supposed to look 12". - on one of her first gigs.
- I'm a tomboy now. I always wanted to fit in with my brother's group, so I climbed trees and played with lead soldiers. But I'm a woman's woman. I never understood women who don't have woman friends.
- Yeah, I suppose I am ordinarily drawn to the darker stuff. You won't find me in a romantic comedy. Those movies don't speak to me. People don't come to talk to me about those scripts, because they probably think I'm this dark, twisted, miserable person.
- I keep saying to myself, Oh, God, I'm sick of playing these dark, harrowing roles. I want a big paycheck, so put me in some dumb romantic comedy any day.
- When I had dark hair I definitely felt that I was more anonymous.
- To be appreciated or recognized is everything to an artist, but to be placed in a category where judgment occurs is awful, and yet we are all liars if we can't admit that we haven't all chased it or dreamed of it, even just a little bit.
- There's a set of rules out there somewhere that says it all ends by 40. I hope to be able to defy that because I truly love my work.
- To be a producer is not something that I look at as a position of power. I just think that I have these great connections, let's use them. I believe in it. You believe in it. Let's do it.
- People think of me as the go-to-girl for nervous breakdowns. (On the type of roles she's offered.)
- It's a bunch of images that are really quite nasty. They don't exactly correlate but you work out what they mean later on in the story, and that alone is pretty scary -- On the videotape in The Ring (2002).
- [on her role in Fair Game (2010)] I'm probably one of the few people who can say I breastfed my baby while packing a loaded gun.
- I'm so not feeling in my best physical shape and there I am having to strip naked -- which I'd never even done before [on her role in Mother and Child (2009)].
- Everyone said I was an overnight success, but it was ten years leading up to that.
- [on The Impossible (2012)] Who knew I'd be swimming for six weeks? After King Kong (2005) I swore to myself that I would never do anything action-driven again, because it just about killed me. But it's sort of like childbirth. You forget.
- [on undertaking the role of Diana, Princess of Wales] It's definitely risky. But having said that, it's a story that has to be told. We like to look back on big stories, and it's a little fresher, perhaps, than Henry VIII.
