Hollywood actress Naomi Watts has spoken out in praise of British star Ewan McGregor, following their second collaboration together. Naomi and Ewan previously worked together on the movie Stay and are set to appear together again on the big screen in the movie The Impossible.
Watts explained to Flicks and Bits, “We have a really nice rapport with each other, and he’s a great guy and a fabulous talent. Ewan’s face just says everything, he’s got this beautiful warmth that comes through in his eyes and his face. I was just lucky and really happy to be working with Ewan again on The Impossible. He’s superb.”
Naomi also admitted that she also enjoyed working with director Juan Antonio Bayona, adding, "I love him, I love him so much. He’s a very brave man because I know he wants to push people to the edge and get everything. He’s not afraid to go there and get it. I know that he had only made one film, but from the very first week in rehearsals I knew that he wanted that challenge of taking actors to new places.”
The Impossible is based on true events surrounding the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami and is set to be released in the US on December 21 and then in the UK on January 4, 2013.
