The description of "Two Mothers," makes the film sound like a juicy scandal: Two lifelong friends fall in love with each other's teenage sons. But Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts, who plays one of the mothers in the film, didn't want to talk about her character's moral dilemma.
"I'm making films because of the interesting material and if it's slightly uncomfortable for people that's understandable. It's not for everybody but it happens in life in different places all over the world," said Watts on the red-carpet premiere Friday night at the Eccles Theatre.
Watts co-stars in the film with Robin Wright, who wasn't in attendance. Demure and softly-spoken, Naomi Watts radiated on the red carpet, but avoided questions relating to her personal life. Nor did she care to enlighten interviewers on how she would feel as a mother if her real-life best friend fell for her son. Instead, Watts stuck to the textbook answers.
