Naomi Watts Gets "Bazaar"

Sneak Peek new images of actress Naomi Watts ("Insurgent") in the August 2019 issue of "Harper's Bazaar" (Australia) Magazine, photographed by Darren McDonald:

"I literally hovered around Los Angeles trying to get a job," said Watts, "and walked in with my head down and not able to own the room for 10 years, which is why I was unhireable, probably.

"It took a master like David Lynch to go, I see something in there that she has. She just doesn’t know she has it.

"I'm not one hundred per cent comfortable in my skin. I grapple with it like anybody else does. But I definitely feel that as I've gotten older, Ive figured it out. 

"It doesn’t mean to say, even with lots of practice, that I'll go, Oh yeah, I've got this! I can throw my fists in the air! I'll feel like I’ve got a handle on things and then the next day be like, Arghh! I can’t cope!..."

"I don't get recognized — hardly ever. People come up to me and say, 'Hey, has anyone ever told you you look like that actress Naomi Watts?' Mood-based, there might be times where I'll be like, 'Oh, really? I've never heard that!' Or another time, I'll be like, 'Yeah, they have said that, and that's because I'm her!' 

"But then they ask, 'What movies have you been in, again?' and suddenly you have to list off your credits, which is even more humiliating. So I think I'm lucky that I can blend into the crowd easily. And I don't think of myself as, Oh, I've made it, I'm a celebrity..."
