The 24th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF) presented Naomi Watts with the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award (her 2nd) at its Awards Gala today on Sat, Jan 5. The presenter was none but her young co-star Tom Holland of their film "The Impossible".
The best intro, however, had to go to 16-year-old Tom Holland who intro'd his "Impossible" co-star Watts. Holland admitted of all of Watts' great performances his dad had only let him see "King Kong" and while they spent six weeks shooting in a water tank he didn't know it was "difficult" because he actually "loved it" (Watts later said she thinks she "aged 20 years in that tank"). Most important, this was Holland's first film role and he sweetly noted, "From the moment I met you, you took my hand and you never let go." Cue the "awwww" from the audience.
