Naomi Watts Talks Dreams For Her Sons, Her Late Start In Motherhood, and Her Relationship With Heath LedgerChris Rogers
Naomi Watts graces the cover of More magazine’s October issue. Inside the pages, the 43-year-old actress opens up about her dreams for her sons, her late start to motherhood, and her relationship with the late Heath Ledger.
Watts has big goals as a mother. She says, “I want them to feel connected to me and me to them. Always. I want them, above all, to feel sure of who they are. That they are safe in the world and confident and happy people. And of course, connected – to their parents, their friends, their family, the world and themselves. This is the most important goal/dream in my life. Everything else is gravy.”
As far as having children at 40-year-old with actor Liev Schreiber, she says, she says, “I think I’m a better parent. I had a lot I wanted to do when I was younger, and perhaps I wouldn’t have been as focused; I got a lot out of the way in terms of my own dreams.”
Watts dated Ledger for over a year back in 2003 and has wonderful memories of the late actor. “We had a beautiful relationship, only a couple of years, but he was a man who was completely full of joy, and there was a lot of laughing and affection. He was really a very special soul and made a great impact on my life. And a great actor, but I know there was so much more to come. And it’s such a tragedy for his little daughter [Matilda].”
