Naomi Watts on how she conquered fear of working with Bill Murray
Naomi Watts is known for her Oscar-nominated roles in “The Impossible” and “21 Grams” and blockbusters like “King Kong” and “The Ring.”
Now, she stars alongside Bill Murray, playing his pregnant, Russian stripper girlfriend in the new comedy, “St. Vincent.”
The story follows Maggie, played by Melissa McCarthy, whose long work hours force her to leave her son with their gambling-addicted, alcoholic neighbor Vincent, played by Murray.
“It was an incredible break for me not having done that much comedy and to be in the middle of those two people, two of the great comedic geniuses,” Watts said on “CBS This Morning.”
Naomi and her Two Mothers director Anne Fontaine appeared on French TV show Le Grand Journal on March 8th to promote their movie, and you can watch their segment below. Screencaptures will be added to the Gallery soon.
I’m going to spend some time catching up on the remaining videos & photos from Naomi’s many recent TV appearances to promote The Impossible. Today I have started with Naomi’s appearance on The Katie Couric Show back in December, on which she promoted her film with Ewan McGregor and Maria Belon. A downloadable video is now available in our Video section, and screencaptures are in the Gallery. You can also find a streaming/embedded video previously posted here.
Naomi promoted The Impossible on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night! You can watch the interview in 3 parts below. Screencaptures will be added very soon (as will pics/vids from Leno!).
First off, Happy New Year to all our visitors!! I hope 2013 brings you lots of great things. I also hope this year brings Naomi lots of great things (particularly in the next few months, career-wise ).
It’s time to play catch up on a few things that got delayed due to the busy-ness of Christmas, and so I have now added HD screencaptures of Naomi on Letterman on December 21st, as well as photos of her outside the studios where they tape the show. It seems she taped it the day before – the 20th. She wore a black Calvin Klein coat – which had a skirt as part of the coat, apparently?! – with Christian Louboutin ‘Col Zippe’ boots for her arrival, and changed into a little black dress for her interview. Check out the pics in the Gallery.
It was an ok interview – Naomi talked a bit about the sibling rivalry between her sons, and then went on to talk about how they filmed The Impossible.
I’m having trouble finding a video of this interview, but will keep looking and post again when I do find one.
EDIT: We are in luck! I have found and uploaded a video for you of the interview. Download it in our Videos section:
We now have HD screencaptures & HQ stills from Naomi’s appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this week in our Gallery! Naomi rocked a rusty red Valentino jumpsuit with super high gold heels on the show, and I think she looked amazing! I love this colour on her, plus the hair and make-up is gorgeous. The interview itself was really good – Naomi recounted a story about embarrassing herself in front of Hillary Clinton at the recent Kennedy Center Honours, talked a bit about New York, and about The Impossible. And to top off a week of high profile award nominations, she also beat Jimmy Fallon at beer pong! So another congrats to Naomi for that
I’m having a bit of trouble encoding a video to upload here, but I will keep trying and hopefully get it done asap. I can’t find one online to embed here, unfortunately.
The HD screencaps and HQ stills are so pretty, so I hope you enjoy …
Here is a video of the segment interviewing Naomi on last night’s Nightline. Screencaps will be added soon!
