Naomi Watts Speaks Out About Working With Women

'Female Relationships Are Such An Important Part Of Our Lives'



Naomi Watts holds on to her yoga mat as she heads to class on Friday afternoon (May 22) in Los Angeles. She just returned from the 2015 Cannes Film Festival where she premiere her new movie, Sea of Trees.

“I sincerely hope that more female stories are being reflected in film because they’re just as important, and there’s as many women in the world, so why shouldn’t it be the case?” Naomi shared while speaking with WWD.

She continued, “Women don’t get to work with women that much in the storytelling. It’s always the man and the woman, or just the woman and the children. It’s so rare that women get to work with women, when I know for a fact, just from having great long relationships with women, we crave it. Our female relationships are such an important part of our lives, and we’ve all got great stories. I could survive alone off those.”

[Article] Naomi Watts Lights Up Cannes

By Joelle Diderich, WWD


CANNES, France – It was the opening day of the Cannes Film Festival, and the entrance of the Martinez hotel, home to some of the biggest stars in town, was under siege. Bulky boxes cluttered the entrance, and a film crew engrossed with an actor in a tuxedo was blocking access to the elevator bank.

In a quiet suite on the second floor, Naomi Watts seemed oblivious to the hubbub. She looked the picture of elegant poise in a purple Roksanda Ilincic dress and Tabitha Simmons high-heel sandals. If she was nervous about her debut later that day as brand ambassador for L’OrĂ©al Paris in Cannes, she wasn’t letting it show.

After all, Cannes is almost home for the British-born, Australian-raised actress. It was the festival that revealed her to the world in 2001 in David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive,” and her mother now lives nearby.

Add to that the fact that she has come with her two young sons — Sasha, 7, and Kai, 6 — and her stylist is none other than her brother Ben’s former girlfriend Jeanann Williams. Watts recalled first tapping Williams, a former fashion public relations exec, to find her a gown for the Venice Film Festival in 2012.....
