Naomi Watts believes that TV is where the best roles for women are right now
The golden age of TV is upon us, and for Naomi Watts, this small screen renaissance all comes down to roles for women. In fact, Watts’ pal Nicole Kidman feels exactly the same way.
Both actors have been friends for years, and can actually be found starring in some pretty rad TV shows at the moment. Watts stars in Netflix’s Gypsy, while Kidman is starring in Top of the Lake: China Girl and also found critical adoration for her turn in Big Little Lies.
Indeed, during this year’s Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour, Kidman shared her thoughts about TV offering some of the best roles right now.
Well, echoing this sentiment is Naomi Watts.
Despite the opportunities that TV brings, Watts did say that she felt it would be a shame if the movie business were to slow down.
“I think the experience of going to see a film is still fantastic and people wanna do it,” she said. “But I’m glad there’s this sort of drama available on TV as well.”
Tbh, we love that TV is offering complicated and compelling depictions of women, and if that means that Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts continue to take on more roles then we aren’t complaining.
