Naomi Watts Talks "Diana" in Allure November 2013
While looking absolutely breathtaking for the Carter Smith-shot spread, "The Impossible" beauty opened up about her relationship with actor Liev Schreiber and her career now that she's in her mid-forties.

On her attempt to make the first move with Liev:
"It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be. Normally I want a guy to make the first move, and he wasn't. Then he got up to say he was leaving and I was like, 'Oh, s***. Probably another couple years are going to pass by. I was wildly attracted to him and his work, so I said something cheeky as he was about to walk out. I said, 'Don't you want my digits? Because I couldn't possibly say, 'Would you like my phone number?' It made him laugh. He texted me five minutes later saying, 'Would you like to go for a drink now?' And I said, 'No, I'll meet you for breakfast tomorrow.'"
On her acting at age 45:
"Women in their 40s have gone through quite a few different things, and so the roles are going to reflect that. People say, 'Oh, it's done by 40,' and now everyone knows it's not. I actually feel like the roles are a lot more interesting."
On her role as Princess Diana:
"I thought, Everyone's going to jump to these comparisons: She's not tall enough. She hasn't got the nose. She hasn't got the voice. I thought, 'It's not going to work, it's too scary. So I said no. But for some reason, I didn't feel completely at peace with that decision. It was nerve-wrecking every step of the way until I was there, and then it was like, 'Okay, now I'm just doing it."
