Naomi Watts: 'Success isn't everything'

January 19th, 2012

Naomi Watts does not believe success is ''everything''.

The Oscar-nominated actress admits she finds life in Hollywood ''uncertain'', but prizes other things over how often she is working now she does not have to worry so much.

She said: ''Acting is such an uncertain kind of life. You struggle so much at the beginning of your career - at least I did - and then you suddenly find yourself working all the time and after six or seven years you realise that maybe work and success isn't everything.''

Naomi can currently be seen in Clint Eastwood's 'J. Edgar' opposite Leonardo DiCaprio, and playing the role of secretary Helen Gandy was challenging for her because it required extensive time in make-up.

She told TNT Magazine: ''I think with Helen, we wanted to make her look elegant, so we were trying to go carefully.

''The process of the endless hours, sitting in a make-up chair is hard and I'm quite an anxious, fidgety person anyway, so I don't really like people touching me for too long.''
