TV IS A FANTASTIC PLACE: NAOMI WATTS
Actor Naomi Watts (above) believes that television is the best place to be for women. But, the 48-year-old, who is playing the lead role in streaming media major Netflix’s latest hit Gypsy, says that her switch to TV was not planned, reported Digital Spy. “Well, it wasn’t like I was actively looking for a TV job, but it made a lot of sense to me. I’d seen it work well for many friends and people around me. It’s a strong movement, and we’re witnessing a change,” she says. “Certainly for women right now, it’s a fantastic place for storytelling. Particularly this kind of character — it’s just hard to find someone that’s both good and bad.”
Watts has also been involved in the revival of the drama series Twin Peaks, and recently joined actors Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson in the adaptation of Jeannette Walls’s 2005 memoir The Glass Castle.
Meanwhile, Watts’ former partner, actor Liev Schreiber (right), says that the two of them are on amicable terms. He adds that they will “always have a relationship because we have children”. Watts and Schreiber announced their split in September last year.
Schreiber told a magazine, “So far, it’s been great,” and that their children, sons Sasha, 10, and Kai, eight, are their top priority. The fourtime Golden Globe-nominated actor is now busy with season 5 of his hit show Ray Donovan.
