Born in Shoreham, England, lived in Australia from age one to seven, before moving back to Australia at age 14, she was raised in a hippy-esque home with her mom “Myfanwy (Miv) Edwards”, the antiques dealer, the costume and set designer who smokedWeed now and then and her father “Peter Anthony Watts” (1946–1976), the road manager and sound engineer who worked with “Pink Floyd”, and his laugh can be heard in their song “Brain Damage” from 1973 album, “The Dark Side of the Moon”, and was found dead in a flat in “Notting Hill”, of an apparent heroin overdose.
“Naomi Ellen Watts” tried working as a model when she was 18 and in the fashion industry, she signed with a models agency that sent her to Japan, but after several auditions found her passion back in acting. Through her auditions, she became friends with a young “Nicole Kidman”, who loves the weed and with “Susan Sarandon”, who claimed to have attended every Hollywood event stoned.
Her first film role came in 1986 with “For Love Alone”, she was casted in the 1991 indie film “Flirting”, the critical hit, that lead to Watts moving to Los Angeles with Kidman’s encouragement. Her breakthrough role came when director “David Lynch” hired her as the lead for his iconic film “Mulholland Drive” in 2001. Other notable roles include starring in Peter Jackson’s remake of “King Kong” and the Hollywood remake of “The Ring”.
While some dogs like to hang out and get stoned with their masters, it’s never wise to let your pet munch down too muchBud. The proud owner of “Bob” learned this lesson the hard way as she and her boyfriend “Ledger” had to rush her spaced-out Bob to “Vancouver’s Animal Emergency Clinic” while they were involved in aCannabis snafu.
The vet’s records show that Bob was diagnosed for “Suspected Ingestion of Marijuana”. In addition to intravenous fluids and medication, Bob was subjected to a pee test. According animal-rights “Anyone who exposes an animal to marijuana is mistreating it”, the reason why, the owner denied that Bob had eaten any of the couple’sStash, claiming instead that Bob just hadNarcolepsy! However I do not think it is mistreating, that’s a bit of a generalization, as don’t we all know some pets that like to get high?
She became a benevolence ambassador for “Joint United Nations Programme” on HIV/AIDS, in 2006, which helps to raise awareness of AIDS-related issues. For her role in “The Impossible” (2012), she received nominations for the “Academy Award” and “Screen Actors Guild Award” and a nomination for the “Golden Globe Award” for best actress. She’s also known for her 11-year relationship with actor “Liev Schreiber”, who she has two sons with.
Its sound like weed connection, as her parents, Kidman, Sarandon and Ledger are pot smokers, while her dog “Bob” like to eat cannabis, so the Aussie Actress has definitely participated to the great joy of puff and pass !
