Q5 with Naomi Watts

Naomi Watts

look gorgeous, by the way, in that cute little blue dress,” Watts says in a sweet, reassuring tone. “It’s Topshop,” I chirp. “Oh? I love Topshop.” And so began my interview with one of Australia’s most renowned exports.

Q1: You’re here tonight on behalf of Pantene, as the new spokesmodel for their Flat-to-Volume collection. But, by the looks of things, you’ve no trouble with volume. How do you achieve such body?

I have my good days and my bad days, but what I love about Pantene is that they recognize my hair type and allow me to work with it. There’s no magic potion. With time, and a specified product regiment, my hair has transformed. In a healthy way.

Q2: What’s your one, must-have styling product?

In addition to the Flat-to-Volume products, I also use the brand’s Triple Action Mousse. It’s great on wet hair. Especially for low maintenance kind-of-girls, like myself. I can maybe drag a hot iron through my hair, but that’s about it. This really helps.

Q3: As a working mum, are there any go-to beauty products you simply can’t live without?

I always use SPF for myself and my kids. I’ve heard that the greater the number, the greater the protection, is a myth. So I stick with SPF30.

Q4: You’re known for your luminous glow. How do keep your skin looking so well?

I try to drink lots of water, and get as much sleep as I can get hold of — which is never enough.

Q5: Do you ever knick any grooming products from your husband [Liev Schreiber]? If so, what do you ‘borrow’?

I don’t use any of my husband’s products, sorry!
