Naomi Watts doesn't look even a little bit pregnant - or bloated for that matter, in a bikini off the coast of Italy. Before I'm accused of nitpicking, I'm mentioning this because Naomi was rumored to be pregnant a few weeks ago, which can be attributed to all the loose tops she's been wearing and certainly not her figure. She is in Ischia, Italy with her boyfriend of over a year, actor Liev Schreiber, for the Global Film Festival.
Both sets of pictures of her in a bikini and on a private yacht are said to be from 7/16.
Naomi Watts, 37, is now on pregnancy watch, and it's largely due to the loose tops and ill-fitting dresses she's worn out to recent events. She's been on pregnancy watch since wearing two different frilly dresses with tummy coverage to the Oscars. We were even declaring her pregnant after she wore a poncho to the Tribeca film festival in late April.
King Kong star Naomi Watts is expecting her first baby, according to media reports in Australia.
The actress was in Sydney, Australia, last weekend attending best pal Nicole Kidman's wedding to country star Keith Urban.
Rumours circulated after the stylish star was seen wearing a series of baggy garments and photographed leaving a Brentwood, California, fertility clinic.
Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper reports it was the second time Watts had been spotted visiting the clinic and that she was "sporting a definite glow" when she attended the Shakespeare in the Park gala in New York City's Central Park with beau Liev Schreiber on Thursday.
Watts was also seen visiting Chinese herbalist and fertility expert Lily Liu in Australia, who is renowned for her work assisting women who want to become pregnant.
The star recently admitted she was desperate for children, but was worried it might be too late to conceive: "I wish it could have happened a little bit sooner. I have wanted a family since I was 19."
If she is pregnant it's very soon along. She was photographed playing tennis on June 18th. Her top was pulling up and she did not have a stomach, although it's a little hard to tell. She was seen at the MacBeth In The Park 2006 Summer Benefit on June 28th in an empire-waist dress, which surely helped feed the rumors.
We really doubt it's true, although we hope it happens soon for her and Liev if they are indeed trying.
Here is Naomi in the photos we mentioned. She is seen with her boyfriend of over a year, actor Liev Schreiber, 38, and with Jessica Lang. Reader Millie let me know that Lang was not gracious about the latest remake of "King Kong" after having starred in the other remake from 1976. She said she wouldn't be seeing Peter Jackson's version of "King Kong" and considered it too commercial.
Liev Screiber, Julia Stiles, and Mia Farrow star in "The Omen," a remake of the 1976 horor film about a little kid who's the devil incarnate.
Here's the trailer: warning
This looks creepy as hell and you couldn't pay me to see this. (Unless it was three figures, then I'd go and cover my eyes.)
At the screening of "The Omen" last night in NY, Watts is wearing a loose-fitting dress, but I don't think she's pregnant unless it's early on. In some HQ photographs that came out a couple of weeks ago you can see her stomach through a sheer top and it's flat.
"The Omen" comes out, predictably, on 6/6/06.
Also shown are Julia Stiles, Mia Farrow, and creepy little Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick.
Naomi Watts has not been seen out in a form-fitting top in ages, and we've been guessing she's pregnant. She even wore a loose top to the press conference announcing her new role as an AIDS envoy for the UN.
Reader Millie, a Naomi Watts expert, has said that she doesn't think Watts is pregnant.
We got all excited when we saw this People Startracks photo today, (inset) because it really looks like Naomi has a baby bump.
It turns out the wind was just blowing her top out, because when you look at the HQs you can see her stomach through the fabric and it's perfectly flat. She doesn't seem to be wearing an engagement ring, which Schreiber was rumored to have bought her, either. Oh well.
Watts is still with Liev Schreiber, though, and they look quite happy together. That's something.
Naomi Watts' Oscar attire included a ripped dress and a flouncy ruffled number that may have been a misguided attempt to hide a growing baby bump. (Yes, we said this already, but a little repetition never hurts.)
Now she was spotted out at the Tribeca film fest with her boyfriend, Liev Shreiber, wearing a full-out poncho with horizontal stripes! Her face looks more filled out too.
Schreiber is said to have bought Watts a 5 carat engagement ring at jeweler Neil Lane. Watts kept her hands conspicuously in her pockets while these pictures were taken, and it's hard to see if she's wearing a ring.
Watts and Schreiber have been plagued by rumors that their relationship is in trouble, with The NY Daily News reporting that Schreiber is controlling and that both were looking for new partners. Reader Millie points out that The NY Daily News doesn't like Schreiber and that they "never fail to take a stab at him." She thinks that Watts and Schreiber each had a difficult childhood and are having trouble adjusting to a long-term stable relationship. (We have learned a lot from readers like Millie and Carrie, so please e-mail tips and insight to info at celebitchy.com.)
Liev Schreiber hosted Dewar's "Hot Scot" party at Cielo last night in New York. Noticeably absent was his girlfriend of one year, Australian actress Naomi Watts.
Watts and Schreiber have been plagued by breakup rumors since Watts attended the Oscars alone. The NY Daily News reported a couple weeks ago that the two were seeking different partners and that a source said Watts found Schreiber too controlling.
Reader Millie e-mailed her take on the relationship. She thinks that the control issue is bogus and that Schreiber remains interested and wants to marry Watts, but that she has cold feet. She also points out a video of Schreiber protecting Watts from the paparrazi that was filmed in late January as clear evidence that he cares for her.
Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts are having relationship trouble after nearly a year of dating. Friends say the two are looking for new partners and admit that things are not going well. Schreiber is said to be too controlling, and may want Watts to quit working to have a baby:
Even though "King Kong" put [Watts] on Hollywood's A-list, "[Schreiber] wants her to stop working entirely and have a baby," claims a source. "He wants to review all her script offers. He even likes her to look a certain way."
Watts' rep swears, "Everything is fine. This is total nonsense."
Schreiber, who stars this summer as Macbeth in Shakespeare in the Park, insists he's no one to meddle.
"If anything," he laughs, "I'm grateful if Naomi gives me advice. Especially when it comes to dressing. She's a lot more experienced with what to wear."
Schreiber sounds like an asshole with that comment, and we wouldn't be surprised if he's controlling. There's something smarmy about the guy and we hope Watts is able to find someone who supports his career rather than trying to tell her what to do.
