Naomi Ellen Watts (born September 28, 1968) is an award winning British-Australian actress and occasional producer. Born in Shoreham, Kent in the UK and raised in Australia before moving to America, Watts struggled in the movie scene for some time, taking on small roles in films she has since admitted were "[[OldShame shit]]" to pay the rent, before being cast by Creator/DavidLynch in the lead role for his project ''Film/MulhollandDrive''. Her performance as Betty Elms/Diane Selwyn won critical acclaim and the attention of some major players in [[HollywoodCalifornia Hollywood]] and beyond. She has since enjoyed success in a far greater choice of film roles, balancing her resume with box-office successes like Gore Verbinski's 2002 remake of the Japanese horror film ''[[Film/TheRing Ringu]]'' and deeper roles in indie films such as 2003's ''21 Grams'', which earned her an Academy Award nomination for best actress that many felt was long overdue.

** Even when her character is modestly clothed, her films always find ways to subject her for a MaleGaze. ''Film/KingKong2005'' in particular made ''a lot'' of effort to give her a chunk of [[ShesGotLegs legs]] and FootFocus.

* FakeAmerican: [[invoked]] More than half of her roles.



* OldShame: [[invoked]] As mentioned above, she's flat-out stated that many of her early films were "shit" and that she only acted in them to pay the rent. Between ''Film/ChildrenOfTheCornIVTheGathering'', ''Film/TankGirl'' and ''The Shaft'', it's probably a good idea to avoid her pre-''Film/MulhollandDrive'' films.



* ThoseTwoActors: [[invoked]] With Sean Penn, her co-star in three films.

* BreakTheCutie : She's subjected to a lot of it in her films. Her character in ''Film/TheImpossible'' gets swept up in a tsunami, almost drowns, winds up with major open wounds in her leg which then get infected, and spends much of the film believing that her husband and two of her sons have drowned. One reviewer referred to it as "The Passion of Naomi Watts".
