The vast there embodies Lil Naomi Watts, the inseparable friend of Roz (Robin Wright) since childhood.

"I look at women more than men '

NAOMI WATTS. This is the first time this has happened, play equally face another actress and we are in the heart of the scenario. Yet, I think, like many women, I look at women more than men, in life as in the movies. Moreover, on the set one day, I forgot to tell my text because I watched Robin play!

IT. Do not you think that if Roz and Lil violate a taboo, it is a way to love through their son?

NAOMI WATTS. Course. Liaison with the son of the other is a physical extension of their love. They love it so much they even end up looking the same. It's an incestuous history but it is not incest.

When you're in the same room both, we listen, we do not stop to talk and laugh at jokes that make us laugh only ... I know what it means to love a friend but not point that Lil Roz and live in the film, of course.

IT. How do you think the public will react to this love quartet sulfur?

NAOMI WATTS. You, the audience does not react as the American public. I also asked Anne why she had not shot this film in France, with French actresses. But for her it was an Anglo-Saxon history and dream decor Australian beaches was part of the plot. I'm not trying to offend, but I knew that I was going to turn this film explore a side of the human race not easy to play and especially full of contradictions d'endre.

IT. "The Grandmothers" is the title of the original story by Doris Lessing. It made you afraid to play one?

NAOMI WATTS. Not at all, you know, my son has 4 and 5 years. I'm 44. If I had done as my mother had us at 18 and 20 years, my brother and I could totally be a grandmother today.
