TV IS A FAN­TAS­TIC PLACE: NAOMI WATTS

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

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.
