Naomi Watts took her two kids and partner Liev Schreiber away from the city and to the fancy Mark Hotel in uptown New York, while taking cover from Hurricane Sandy. The family have been spotted in numerous cozy and awe-inspiring situations lately, including the park and bicycle rides with the kids strapped to the parents’ bikes. Watts has also been seen dropping of her son, Sam, to school with her bike! We appreciate her environmental friendly ride – which is probably what keeps the 44 year old in such good shape – and we appreciate Watts’ efforts in her acting. The blonde stars in The Impossible, an epic drama, together with Ewan McGregor, about the 2004 tsunami in Thailand. During a recent Q&A session, the actors and the director talked about what it was like making this movie, from working with kids actors to working with water – Watts nearly drowned when she was 15, so she wasn’t particularly fond of those scenes. The movie was released this month and it’s been rated so far at a 7.6.
