‘The Impossible’ Star Naomi Watts Says She’s No Fearless Parent: ‘I’m Terrible in a Crisis’ (VIDEO)
“Allegedly that’s true,” she told Celebuzz when asked about how unafraid she is to do anything needed for her kids. “I still can’t quite believe that. I think I’m terrible in a crisis.”
“But that really inspired me in this story,” she explained. “It’s clear, she becomes this powerful and courageous woman, although she never wants to be thought of as that.”
Since her breakthrough performance in David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive, Watts has been one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed actresses. Although she’s received just one Oscar nomination – for 2004’s 21 Grams – she’s received widespread recognition for her roles in King Kong, Eastern Promises and many other movies.
“I try not to think about it,” Watts said. “But it’s hard not to think about it because people bring it up – and it’s flattering of course. But I’ve been down this road a couple of times, and it gets you all nervous, so it’s best not to think about it.”
The Impossible opens in theaters nationwide on December 21. Watch the film’s theatrical trailer below.
