NAOMI WATTS struggled to work under “difficult” director MICHAEL HANEKE because he forced her to go against her acting instincts. The Australian actress teamed up with Haneke on new movie Funny Games U.S. and she soon discovered his reputation as a controlling taskmaster was wholly justified. She says, “He’s very connected to everything, Michael. He’s very specific about every detail: when to pick up the glass, when to move it, when to say the line. It’s a very difficult way for an actor to work.
NICOLE Kidman isn’t the only one who is planning to scale back her career this year, her bestie Naomi Watts has a similar New Year’s resolution. The yummy mummy has revealed she plans to make fewer movies so she can spend more time with her five-month-old son Alexander. “I want to stick with just one or two films a year now,” the Eastern Promises star said. “I’m OK right now. I’m sure more will come but I wanted to be a mother for so long and that was a really big deal for me. After Mulholland Drive I did go a little crazy, doing two or three things a year.”
I’ve added those photoshoots I mentioned earlier in the week today – they are absolutely gorgeous! :heart1: I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
I also added some movie stills and posters, and the other day I added some old event pictures. Oh, and I also added a couple of candids from last September when Naomi bumped into Sienna and Savannah Miller in New York!

Two updates in one day! I decided to continue adding stuff while I had the time :p So I’ve added 4 sets of new candids (2 of which are additions to the ones JT posted the other day) and a bunch of new Eastern Promises stills and posters. Links below … enjoy!
I hope you all had a nice Xmas One of my presents was the Ellie Parker DVD, so today I have started making screencaps of it! I’ve added over 500 caps from the Menu’s and Extras … caps from the film itself will be up next (along with a bunch of new candids). While I didn’t overly love the film, I thought Naomi gave a fantastic performance and it just reminded me what an incredibly solid and versatile actress she is :heart1:
