Naomi Watts is Vogue Australia’s February 2013 cover star as photographed by Will Davidson and styled by Stevie Dance against a divine floral backdrop that is just floral perfect. The inside editorial “Acting Royalty” focuses on Naomi’s upcoming film Diana and pays homage to Dior.
Inside she shares:
Filming The Impossible: “It was definitely hard work [but] had it been on green screen, you wouldn’t have got the same feeling. I mean, we were in that pool, struggling to breathe. Of course, nothing to the extent to what the real people went through, but, nonetheless . . . I’m not even a strong swimmer. The pressure of The Impossible was huge because it is such a sensitive subject and needs to be told with a lot of truth.”
Portraying Princess Diana: “In the case of Diana, of course, there is a huge pressure to look right, to have good hair, to walk and speak [like her]. And I instantly thought: ‘Oh no, I’m going to fail at that because the comparisons are going to be monumental.'”
People she’s drawn to: “I’m always interested in complicated women, in women who are full of contradictions: strength, vulnerability, success, loneliness and all those things. Diana exemplified that in major ways. She was a great mother, did a lot of things with AIDS [charities] and the landmines, and had an extraordinary life, but her life was filled with tragedy and, of course, ended in the most tragic way.”
