HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAOMI WATTS!!!
And in celebrating this amazing woman enjoy HQ photos of her latest appearance, yesterday, for the Haute Living Celebrates Kelly Ripa And The Release Of “Live Wire”
Take a first look at Naomi Watts from the upcoming Netflix series “The Watcher” for which we already had an official trailer released.
First official trailer of “The Watcher” starring Naomi Watts and Bobby Cannavale has been released. The mini-series airs on October 13th.
Naomi Watts is ready to bring humor to an unexpected place: the conversation around menopause. (Yes, menopause!) The Academy Award-nominated actress and mom of two, 53, is done with the silence and shame that have long surrounded the phase of life that, oh, literally everyone with a uterus on the planet experiences once they get to a certain age — and she’s making it her business to talk about it. Watts is launching a menopause brand called Stripes this fall, and she’s also partnered with Em & Friends on The Naomi Watts Menopause Collection, a line of menopause-themed greeting cards.
The cards — four in all — bring a relatable and funny voice to the menopause conversation. And If you’re wondering what’s so funny about menopause, well, Watts explains it this way: “We’re taking a step to empower women during their menopausal transition. Humor is a big way to access uncomfortable conversations and wherever there’s pain, there’s a need to defuse it.. and yes, if we can’t laugh, we’ll just cry and god knows we’ve done enough crying by now.”
Conversation of any sort was lacking when Watts began experiencing perimenopause, she told SheKnows via email. “I went into perimenopause earlier than my peers and there wasn’t a ton of conversation going on about menopause at the time. My own personal experience echoed what I went through with fertility, which I found to be very lonely and shameful, the notion of not being able to bare children was making me feel ‘less than.’ I knew if I was feeling this way that there were likely others feeling this way, and that society’s perspective needs to change.”
That’s a big reason why the greeting cards project appealed to her. Founder Emily McDowell’s irreverent designs “shared our mission of normalizing candid conversations,” she says, “and I’m hoping these cards inspire women to reach out to one another in solidarity as we approach Menopause Awareness Month this October and beyond.”
To that end, the cards make light of the WTF-ness of it all (The “I Have Some Questions” card asks, “Is there such a thing as cute sweat-wicking sheets?”) while also giving voice to shared feelings and experiences. (“Watch Out for Each Other” speaks to the feeling of invisibility women going through menopause can experience.) They also have a charitable component: Through Oct. 31, $1 from each card sold will be donated to the Alliance for Period Supplies.
For her part, Watts is still in the thick of it all, with new symptoms of menopause popping up all the time (“just when I think they’ve stopped, a new one appears!”) but says she has found relief from keeping her diet balanced, working out, incorporating supplements into her routine, and HRT. “I really trusted my provider’s guidance from the start since there’s no single approach to menopause or aging.”
Contributing to the evolution of the topic and reducing the shame also surely helps. “The menopause movement is coming,” she says, “and I hope my generation is the last to be suffering in silence.”
“Goodnight Mommy” is a psychological horror movie about two young twins, Elias (Cameron Crovetti) and Lukas (Nicholas Crovetti), who return home to their mother (Naomi Watts) after an extended stay with their dad. But once the boys are dropped off, they find that their mother’s entire face is covered in bandages as a result of cosmetic surgery. Unable to see her features and frightened by her odd and even terrifying behavior, the boys begin to wonder if the person underneath is really their mother at all.
Directed by Matt Sobel, “Goodnight Mommy” is a remake of a 2014 Austrian film written and directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala. While some aspects of the original have been altered for the English-language remake, the core of the story is the same, as is the shocking twist toward the end that changes everything the viewer perceives about the movie.
For the talented Crovetti brothers, “Goodnight Mommy” continues a burgeoning career that has included roles for both in the HBO series “Big Little Lies,” as well as an upcoming appearance in “Salem’s Lot” for Nicholas and a recent stint on “The Boys” for Cameron. Meanwhile, for Watts — who has starred in the English-language version of the Japanese horror classic “The Ring,” Peter Jackson’s epic 2005 take on “King Kong,” and Michael Haneke’s own reworking of his horrifying home invasion drama “Funny Games” — the thought of doing another remake wasn’t very exciting to her at first.
Taking an active role as an executive producer — something she’s been doing more of lately — helped ease her doubts. She and the Crovetti brothers sat down with The List for an exclusive interview where they shared their thoughts on the film, behind-the-scenes details, and more.
Naomi Watts needed convincing to star in a horror remake
Naomi, had you seen the original film before or after getting involved with this?
Naomi Watts: Yes — I first read the script, then had a great conversation with [director] Matt Sobel. He knew that I was nervous about doing a remake, having done a few by now, but he comforted me because he told me that he had new ideas that he wanted to incorporate.
I was struck by his level of intelligence and instantly trusted him. I did go and watch the original, and I was like, “Whoa, this is a really good film. There’s not much that should be done here.” But that makes it interesting when you’ve got new ideas and we can do a lot of what they did as well.
