In 2002, she starred in one of the biggest box office hits of that year, the English language remake of the Japanese horror film The Ring. The following year, she starred in the film Ned Kelly opposite Heath Ledger, Orlando Bloom, and Geoffrey Rush, as well as the Merchant-Ivory film Le Divorce with Kate Hudson. Her performance opposite Sean Penn and Benicio del Toro in director Alejandro González Iñárritu's 21 Grams earned Watts her first Academy Award nomination as Best Actress. Watts landed the lead role in the sequel to the Ring, The Ring Two. She starred in the much-anticipated remake of King Kong (2005) as Ann Darrow. Naomi Watts starred in the American Japanese drama The Painted Veil with Edward Norton and Liev Schreiber, released in December 2006. Her character in the film was Kitty Garstin Fane. Also that year, she provided the voice of a small role, Suzie Rabbit, in the psychological thriller film Inland Empire. Funny Games, a 2008 remake of the 1997 Austrian film by director Michael Haneke, was co-starred Tim Roth. In the film, she portrayed the character of Ann Farber, the wife of Roth's character. In 2009, Watts had the starring role alongside Clive Owen in the political thriller film The International. Her character was Eleanor Whitman, a Manhattan assistant district attorney who partners with the agent to take down the bank. She next appeared in the American drama Mother and Child, which was screened at the Sundance Film Festival. She personified the role of Elizabeth, a lawer woman, who never knew her biological mother. The comedy-drama You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger – starring Watts – opened at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival on May 15, 2010. In January 2010, she was cast for the thriller film Dream House, which will be directed by Jim Sheridan. She starred in the film Fair Game, which opened at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010, and was later released in the United States on November 5, 2010. In 2010, it was announced that Watts landed the role of Marilyn Monroe in the film Blonde. which is set to start shooting in January 2011.

Sex Scenes

Part of what redefines her as the film ensues, is Betty's sexuality. Watts has some graphic scenes in the film, notably with co-star Laura Elena Harring, one (a ferocious masturbation scene) more confronting and disturbing than the other. It's a side of Watts we have rarely seen through the years, and the actress admits that shooting these more intimate nude scenes was tough, "especially the second one". "At least when I was with Laura, we were together and we could feel safe with our own bodies, and there was a degree of trust that we'd developed over time. The masturbation scene was incredibly difficult, and was absolutely mortifying and humiliating; it's just a very difficult thing to do."

Horror

"I’ve never been a fan of gore. Even though I’ve done quite a few films of this genre, there has never really been much of blood and guts in the films I’ve done. It’s been more psychological. I’m not here to say that, just because I’m tapped into Michael’s mind-set and what he’s trying to say, shame on you for all those other films being made. I’m not on a soapbox here.  I understand every film has its value, in its different way, and what works for some people, doesn’t work for others. I’m an actor. I enjoy playing fear and, if I’m in another thriller of that type then - But, I’m not ever really interested in the gory stuff."

Cast: Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, Andy Serkis, Thomas Kretschmann, Jamie Bell, Evan Parke, Kyle Chandler, Colin Hanks

One of the greatest adventure stories in Hollywood history gets a new interpretation in this action drama from Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson. In the early 1930's, Carl Denham (Jack Black) is a daring filmmaker and adventurer who has gained a reputation for his pictures documenting wildlife in remote and dangerous jungle lands; despite the objections of his backers, Denham plans to film his next project aboard an ocean vessel en route to Skull Island, an uncharted island he discovered on a rare map. Correctly assuming his cast and crew would be wary of such a journey, Denham has told them they're traveling to Singapore, but before they set sail, his leading lady drops out of the project. Needing a beautiful actress willing to take a risk, Denham finds Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts), a beautiful but down-on-her-luck vaudeville performer and offers her the role; cautious but eager to work, Darrow takes the role, and onboard the ship she strikes up a romance with Jack Driscoll (Adrian Brody), a respected playwright hired by Denham to write the script for his latest epic.

When Denham and Company arrive on Skull Island, the natives react with savage violence, but they happen to be the least of their worries. Skull Island is a sanctuary for prehistoric life, and lording it over the dinosaurs and other giant beasts is Kong, a twenty-five-foot-tall gorilla who can outfight any creature on Earth. The natives kidnap Darrow, giving her to Kong as an offering to appease the giant beast; Denham and his men set out to find her, with Driscoll bravely determined to save the woman he loves. Eventually, Driscoll finds Darrow and Denham outwits Kong, intending to take the giant ape back to New York for display. But Kong has bonded with Darrow, and his attraction to her proves to be his undoing. Andy Sirkis, who provided the body movements for Gollum in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings pictures, performed similar duties on King Kong, studying gorillas so he could mimic their actions, which were then used as the basis for the special effects crew's digital animation of the great ape.
