Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon has written an open letter to Naomi Watts, praising her for her performance in new movie The Impossible. Naomi has been nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in the film and Reese has backed Naomi to bag the Oscar.
The letter reads: “I know we don’t know each other well. I hope it’s ok that I am reaching out to you, because I simply could not contain my enthusiasm about your performance in The Impossible. The life-breath of the film is you. Your brutal physical performance, the ferocity of your mothering spirit and the soul-touching moments where you hold on to life with every part of your being were incredible. If I have anything to do with it (and I will literally tap dance on Sunset Boulevard for you!), you will be holding every beautiful statue that exists by the end of February… Congratulations. And thank you for sharing your heart and soul so openly.”
Naomi Watts stars alongside Ewan McGregor in The Impossible, which centres around the Tsunami in Thailand back in 2004. The Impossible has been directed by Juan Antonio Bayona and is set to be released on December 21 in the US and on January 1, 2013 in the UK.
