Eastern Promises was released on DVD in the UK last week, and I picked up a copy today to make screencaps for the site. While I didn’t love the film, Naomi put in a solid performance (which goes without saying really!) and she and Viggo had fantastic chemistry!
WITH dad on deck, filming Wolverine, the baby son of actors Liev Schrieber and Naomi Watts, stretched his legs on the Sydney cafe scene yesterday.
Enjoying a spot of lunch at Bronte, young Alexander won over the locals, scoring plenty of cuddles and coo-ing from Watts film fraternity including Love My Way star Ben Mendohlson and Greek goddess, Mary aka “Effie” Coustas.
Fashionably dressed in a Bonds singlet and matching his sunhat with mum’s, the tiny tacker was a picture of health, tucking into a healthy bowl of pumpkin mash while the big kids dined on salads and fries.
This happy family scene is expected to play out in Sydney for the next three months, while Schrieber completes his role in the X Men prequel and Watts enjoys time away from Tinseltown.
THE claws were out at a celebrity party last night, but only to honour Hugh Jackman’s action film Wolverine. Jackman splashed out on a VIP party for the cast in Sydney, inviting friends, including Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber, to an exclusive soiree. Jackman and his wife, Deborra-lee Furness, who have been in town during the making of the action film, were the hosts of the event for cast and crew.
VETERAN Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson has raised eyebrows as high as his own by announcing that he’s behaved so badly, even he feels the need to apologise. Jack Nicholson has not had to apologise for much during his multi-Oscar winning 50-year professional career. But it seems there are two Australians he has been keen to say “sorry” to for remarks he whispered to them a year ago and which has created one of Hollywood’s hottest guessing games.
Naomi Watts and her actor boyfriend Liev Schreiber are looking for a family holiday home in Australia. The couple and their 7-month-old son Alexander were spotted viewing property in Sydney on Feb 17. Rumours are making rounds that the acting couple is looking for a home in Sydney neighbourhoods Bronte, Tamarama and Bondi, so that Watts and Schreiber are able to live close to the actress’ best pal Nicole Kidman, reports Contactmusic. The couple was also seen dining with Kidman on 18 Feb. Watts has been dating Schreiber since the spring of 2005 and the couple welcomed their child, Alexander Pete born on July 26, 2007 in Los Angeles.
What with it being Oscar night tonight, I thought it would be nice to take a look back at Naomi’s Oscar glamour over the years, so I’ve added over 200 HQs from her 2004, 2006 & 2007 appearances. She looks amazing in all of them, and 2007 is one of my all-time favourite Naomi looks! I’ve also added another lot of photoshoots, including new (to the site) ones and additions.
NB: Naomi is not expected to attend the Oscars tonight, unfortunately.

Naomi has been nominated for Best Actress for Eastern Promises at the 34th Annual Saturn Awards. She faces competition from Amy Adams (“Enchanted”), Ashley Judd (“Bug”), Helena Bonham Carter (“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”), Belen Rueda (“The Orphanage”) and Carice van Houten (“Black Book”). Eastern Promises also received nominations for Best Actor (Viggo Mortensen) and Best International Film. This year’s show will take place on Tuesday, June 24, in Universal City, California.
Over the weekend I added over 550 photos from all of Naomi’s public appearances in 2002 (I still have the Ring premiere albums to add though). In this year she attended a number of award ceremonies after the success of Mulholland Drive and promoted The Ring before it’s release in October. It’s one of my favourite years of Naomi appearances because of who she’s pictured with on several occassions :p
As JT posted, Naomi attended Tropfest in Sydney yesterday, and I’ve added more photos from that event today, taking our total to over 50. And finally for now, we have some adorable new candids of Naomi and Alexander on the beach in Sydney from earlier today!
HE was born in Los Angeles, but Naomi Watts’ son Alexander Pete Schreiber was finally christened a Bondi baby yesterday. Less than 24 hours after arriving back in her hometown, yummy mummy Watts clearly couldn’t wait to introduce seven-month-old Alexander to Sydney’s famous strip of sand. Despite the blustery conditions and grey sky, the Hollywood star was the picture perfect image of a contented mother as she cuddled and kissed her son and dipped his little feet in the ocean.
Naomi Watts was among a host of Australian entertainers who joined this year’s 16 Tropfest finalists on the red carpet at Sydney’s Domain. In its 16th year, Tropfest is promoted as the world’s largest short film festival, with finalists selected from a field of 600 entries from around the globe. “It is probably a little early to say, but this is probably one of the biggest if not the biggest (Tropfests) we’ve had,” Tropfest creative director John Polson said on the red carpet.
