Actor Bio

Naomi Ellen Watts is a British actress and film producer. She made her film debut in the Australian drama For Love Alone and then appeared in the Australian television series Hey Dad..!, Brides of Christ, Home and Away, and the film Flirting. After moving to the United States, Watts struggled as an actress for years, with appearances in small-scale films.

Watts rose to international prominence for playing an aspiring actress in David Lynch’s psychological thriller Mulholland Drive (2001) and a tormented journalist in the horror remake The Ring (2002). She received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as a grief-stricken mother in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s film 21 Grams (2003). Her profile continued to grow with starring roles in I Heart Huckabees (2004), King Kong (2005), Eastern Promises (2007), and The International (2009).

Watts starred as “a therapist who begins to develop dangerous and intimate relationships with the people in her patients’ lives” in the Netflix drama series Gypsy (also 2017), and served as one of its executive producers.

Despite significant media attention, Watts is reticent about her personal life. She was in a relationship with American actor Liev Schreiber from 2005 to 2016, with whom she has two sons. Since 2017, Naomi has been dating American actor Billy Crudup. They met on the set of the Netflix drama series Gypsy.
