I’ve started to cap King Kong, and have added the first batch of screencaptures today. These are from the first few scenes before Ann gets on the boat … it seems there are going to be quite a few caps from this movie
Naomi Watts has said she hopes the late Heath Ledger will win an Oscar.
The actor – who died aged 28 of an accidental prescription drug overdose – has received a post-humus nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.
Naomi – who dated Heath for several years and was a close friend of his when he died – told The Independent: “It’s still very difficult.
Naomi Watts has confessed the credit crunch has got her in such a panic she wants to stuff all her money under the mattress.
The 40-year-old actress told The Independent even movie stars are worried by the economic crisis.
Naomi – who stars in new film The International – said: “We’re all feeling incredibly scared and vulnerable about what’s going on in the banks. It just goes to show that these empires, these corporations have so much influence over us – they talk us into doing things, living beyond our means and certainly in this film, the banks are able to control everything.
“We’re all very vulnerable. I’ve called my accountant many times in fits of panic. You feel like, ‘let me get all my cash out now’. It feels like it’s time to hide the money under the mattress. These are very scary times.”
Naomi Watts doesn’t think Hollywood should take a pay cut during the global economic downturn.
The Aussie actress, 40, believes she and her fellow entertainers deserve their fees for spreading a little cheer during the hard times.
She says, “I’m doing a movie now where it’s the least I’ve been paid in about ten years.
“People are willing to go to work now for that when ordinarily that wouldn’t happen. I think we may be more open to negotiation but I think the art world tends to thrive in times of recession.
“We need the escapism. We need stories to be told for us to take ourselves away from the reality of our situations or circumstance.”

The family will also be catching up with Ledger’s ex-girlfriend Naomi Watts tomorrow night when they attend the reception at Hollywood hotspot Chateau Marmont to announce the winner of the inaugural Heath Ledger Scholarship.
Watts is one of the major benefactors for the scholarship, which has seen about 150 emerging Australian actors apply.
The event is expected to attract Australia’s Hollywood A-list, including Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman.
[I'm getting] no sleep – literally, because I’m feeding all through the night,” the actress, who gave birth to a son, Samuel, in December says on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday. “He’s still eating every three to four hours.”
Asked how she manages to stay alert, Watts, who is promoting her new movie, The International, says, “Oh, I’m not! I’m really never grounded these days. I feel like I’m always five steps behind.”

Can you talk about working with Naomi Watts and why the movie didn’t have a romance between your two characters?
It was great working with Naomi. I’ve known her on and off for a while. We nearly worked together a few times and it didn’t quite happened, but it was great that it finally did. I think she’s a special, great actress and a lovely girl. It’s easy working with her. The whole thing was a pleasure. I was very that [our "International" characters] relationship didn’t descend into clich?. They’re a partnership. There is an attraction there, but it’s based on their work ethic and their pursuit of the bank. I think it would’ve been an obvious and clich? thing to do to descend into romance. I think it’s a very delicately, well-pitched relationship.
