Naomi Watts Interview – Demolition – “I waited a long time until my career took off”


Naomi Watts is no stranger to stories that deal with fractured lives.  She’s given memorable performances in dark or tragic films including 21 Grams, Funny Games, and The Impossible.  Few actresses can rival her ability to evoke profound pathos or deep sensitivity in the face of difficult circumstances.


Q:  Does being a mother make it easier for you to say no to projects as opposed to earlier in your career?

WATTS:  I waited a long time until my career took off and once I started getting to play in bigger films and having a lot of offers I just wanted to work as hard as possible because you never know how long your success is going to last in this business.
