Watts the talk of movie industry

Wednesday, 09 August 2017, 10:10:34 PM. LIKE her best friend Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts is in the middle of a career and fashion renaissance!

She received rave reviews for her performances in recent TV series Twin Peaks and Gypsy, and is about to do all again in the intense new film The Glass Castle.

Looking glamorous in a white gown and bold red shoes, the mum of two attend a talk yesterday in New York to promote the film, based on the best selling memoir by Janette Wallis about her controversial upbringing, ahead of it’s World Premiere today.

The look is a far cry from the aged and weathered Watts that appears in the film, playing an eccentric mother-of four. Her transformation looks eerily similar to the one Kidman underwent for Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake: China Girl.

However Watts, who is 49 next month, is not the only Aussie in the film. Sarah Snook also stars alongside Academy Award winner Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson. But she’s not the only Aussie starring in the buzz worthy film — with Sarah Snook also getting a role.

Speaking to Confidential ahead of the premiere, Snook said working with Watts was a treat.

“Naomi is so lovely,” she said. “She would organise family picnics because her sons were also in Montreal when we were shooting. WE would have these family picnics on Sunday. It was a good social time as well as work time, which I think has been infused into the film.”

Mimicking her successful professional life, Watts is currently dating Gypsy leading man Billy Crudup after splitting with ex-partner Liev Schreiber last year.
