Antonio Banderas was in Málaga earlier this week, to present his fellow actor, Juan Diego, with his award in the latest Málaga Film Festival. He also told ‘La Opinión de Málaga’ that he has ten very funny scenes in the new Woody Allen film with Naomi Watts, where there is sexual tension between the two despite their characters both being married. – typicallyspanish.com
Long Island officials say they plan to rent the lobby of a building housing government offices to the producers of “Fair Game,” a film based on the Valerie Plame CIA affair.
Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy says the filmmakers will use the 12-story H. Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge as a double for the CIA headquarters.
The movie, reportedly starring Sean Penn and Naomi Watts, is based on the memoir by Valerie Plame, the CIA operative whose identity was leaked after her husband cast doubt on claims the Iraqi government possessed weapons of mass destruction.
Levy says the county will receive $14,000 in fees for use of the facility.
Nicole Kidman will star in Woody Allen’s next film, joining the already announced cast of Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto and Naomi Watts.
The as-yet-untitled film is produced by Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures. It is financed by Mediapro, the Spain-based company which also funded “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”
Sony Pictures Classics will release Allen’s next completed film, “Whatever Works,” which opens theatrically on June 19, 2009.
It looks like Naomi has jumped from filming Mother & Child straight into Fair Game, as she was photographed on the set of the film last weekend. I’ve added the first 10 photos from the set.
Incidentally, both Naomi and her partner Liev Schreiber are currently shooting movies where they play spies – Liev is working on Salt with Ms Jolie, where he plays a CIA agent.
“Naomi and I both play CIA agents who appear normal. They aren’t Hollywood’s idea of a spy. We are both trying to figure out who they are.” – Liev Schreiber
 January 16th – Out with Samuel in New York
 January 28th – Out in Los Angeles with Liev & Samuel
Edit: I’ll be discussing with Jess about what to do about the Candids section. I’ve removed the 3rd set since it looked liked she wasn’t aware she was being photographed. Since she is smiling & seem awared she was being photographed, I’m leaving these 2 sets up. Once Jess & I have made our final decision we’ll go from there.
On Sunday I started to add the 2004 appearance photos, and I have added another batch today – over 1000 photos have been added on these 2 days!! There are still another 7 events to add, and there are probably another 1000 or so photos from them. 2004 was a busy year for Naomi (at least, the start of it was), as she attended all the award ceremonies at which she was nominated for 21 Grams. This was another of my favourite years for Naomi’s style, as she managed to go from classic-glamorous to quirky-glamorous so well!
I won’t list all of the albums that have been added/updated, because most of them have. Instead, have fun browsing 😉
Last night I replaced some photoshoots with HQ versions – click here to see those additions. None are new to the site, I’ve just uploaded HQ/larger HQ versions to replace smaller versions we already had.
Look out for a large icon update next…!
I’ve added the final lot of photos from appearances Naomi made in 2003, so that section is now complete! These final sets are from the Le Divorce photocall and screening at the Venice Film Festival, and are some of my all-time favourite photos of Naomi – not only does she look like she’s having a great time with Kate Hudson, but these looks to me are very classic Naomi Watts … when I think of Naomi I think of these pics *lol* So enjoy her beautiful-ness 😉
Also, it would be great to see some more comments here … I’ve been trying to update the site as often as possible, with as much as possible, and it would be great to hear whether you’re enjoying these updates … so don’t be shy – post a comment or two 😉
First of all, if you tried to visit the site yesterday/early today you would’ve encountered an error and not been able to access the site properly – sorry about that, fortunately it’s fixed now though!
I’ve added a bunch more pictures from most of the events Naomi has attended so far this year. These new additions include more photos from the 2 events Naomi attended in Milan last week (including pictures of Naomi with Kate (although, they are separated by Scarlett Johansson, unfortunately lol)!, lots more from The International screening, and some new additions from the The International Press Conference.
I also added screencaps from the clip from The International that is available at the The International Apple.com trailer page. The clip is actually an edited version of what appears in the final movie. Speaking of The International, I went to see it earlier this week, and I really enjoyed it! Ignore the bad reviews it’s been getting – it’s a tense, exciting and intriguing film and definitely worth watching. You might think a film about banks is going to be a bit dull, but it really wasn’t. As for Naomi, this certainly wasn’t her most dynamic character, and she didn’t have that much to do … her performance was solid to start of with, but was slightly questionnable as the film went on … though having said, you know Naomi doesn’t give bad performances. All in all – go and see The International
