Naomi Watts has revealed Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman helped her to believe in herself.
The â€˜While Weâ€™re Youngâ€™ star admits she couldn’t have carved out a successfulÂ careerÂ in Hollywood without theÂ supportÂ of herÂ bestÂ friend.
â€œI was lucky that Nicole Kidman was always there toÂ supportÂ me, console me, keep my spirits up and help me believe in myself. Sheâ€™s been such aÂ goodÂ friend over the years,â€ she said.
The 46-year-old beauty, who has sons Alexander, seven, and Samuel, six, with long-term partner Liev Schreiber, said she is reluctant to take on traumatic roles these days because she is so happy in her personalÂ life.
â€œEarly in myÂ careerÂ I was drawn to darker material. But now I have so much joy in my familyÂ lifeÂ that I donâ€™t want to spoil that mood.
â€œI feel such a warmth with Liev and the boys. IÂ lookÂ forward to everything now. Iâ€™ve always had a happy nature; it wasÂ justÂ a matter of getting to a place where I could let that side take charge again. Me and my men have such fun together.â€
