NAOMI WATTS: TRANSITIONING IN LIFE & HOLLYWOOD

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

naomiNewly-single, Naomi Watts, has recently opened up about her breakup with longtime partner, Liev Schreiber.  In an interview with The Daily Telegraph Australia, the actress, 48, admits that “change is always scary,” but “I feel I’m in a good place in my life and I want to make sure my kids are healthy, my kids are happy and things are going to go well.”  Watts acknowledges that transition is difficult for anyone, “whether you’re famous or not.”  Adding, “I feel like change is always scary, but that’s only because transition for anyone is new and you wonder how things are going to go.”

Watts has made a career based upon meaty roles which are not “centered on vanity.”  In fact, she acknowledges, “I’m prepared to look old if I have to, that’s not a problem.”  However, she admits, “It’s probably a bit harder aging in the spotlight, and it’s touch getting older on camera and feeling the pressure because there’s more judgement and more focus on you.”

BODY BY SIMONE: HOLLYWOOD’S SECRET WEAPON!

 Body By Simone
Where are Hollywood A-Listers getting their hard bodies these days?  Celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Reese Witherspoon, Naomi Watts, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley literally dance their way into shape with the help of former Broadway dancer, Simone De La Rue.  De La Rue, 41, leads her clients through an action-packed routine which incorporates elements of dance, aerobics, yoga, and even trampoline.   “My method, which uses mostly bodyweight and a little resistance in the form of bands and small weights, worked as fantastically for my clients as it had for me. They soon developed lean, lithe bodies, and were beyond excited to reach their physique goals,” says De La Rue.
The program, called, Body By Simone, can be followed in one of De La Rue’s three studios in Los Angeles and New York.  But what if you’re not a dancer?  “The fundamental elements of the BBS exercise program are based in dance, but this does not mean you have to be a dancer to do them,” shares De La Rue. “Anyone of any age and ability can do them” … that’s if you can keep up with an irregular beat.  While most dances are based on an 8-count, Simone’s classes are not, which can be too complicated for those who are dance-challenged.  Nevertheless, one student admits that she jumps rope in place of dancing.  For those unable to reach the coasts, Simone offers pre-recorded classes on Body By Simone TV.
