Naomi Watts is the cover girl for BlackBook magazine’s May 2010 Sex Issue.The spread is really original and it’s good to see Naomi in a different way. It’s a basic stylish dominatrix look. Madonna did it, and so did Bettie Page, and so did many other women before.Below are more photos and the interview Watts gave editor Nick Haramis.
On her first full-frontal nude scene: “I’ve never done full-frontal nudity before. It was so hard for me to do that. I had just had a baby, so my body was completely different. But I thought that if I was going to play this ballsy woman, I needed to go for it. [But] someone in the crew tipped off the paparazzi! Isn’t that awful??”
On being noticed with her partner, Liev Schreiber: ”I’ve literally had people come up to me and say, ‘You look just like that actress Naomi Watts.’ And when I’m with Liev, who is so unmistakably him, girls will push past me shrieking, ‘Is that the guy from Scream???’”
On starring in a commercial in which she plays an office worker who wins a date with Tom Cruise: ”Who knew my friend [Katie Holmes] would end up married to him? We’ve all since joked about it. Everyone thought it was funny and silly. But, hey, I got paid something like $10,000 for that one, which allowed me to get over the humiliation pretty quickly.”
