Thank you so much guys for spending time with me. I had fun with you guys and I really hope you see The Book of Henry this weekend.
Hi Naomi! I can't believe Tank Girl came out more than 20 years ago! What's your favourite memory of making the movie?
That's shocking to me as well! My favorite memory is that I couldn't believe I got that part. They made me audition 9 Times! I wasn't even sure it was going to happen. And just getting that call saying yes, they are casting you.
Arianne Phillips the costume designer was so creative and inventive. We had such a great time doing all of the costumes together!
I didn't know I had the best cheeks in Hollywood but thank you!
Just be clear. It's the most important thing from a director. It helps to understand their vision. It's really fun when you know what they're really looking for.
It's no secret that I am familiar to the horror & psychological thriller genres. I love a good drama and a good comedy as well. It is not as easy to find. I am also not the go to girl for a comedy.
We lived in the same area and we had friends in common. The way our flourished was when we worked on a film called "Flirting."
You are one of my favorite actresses, but your career was more of a steady climb than an instant breakthrough. How has that experience impacted you as a person and as an actress?
I think things definitely change. It's definitely been years and years of trying out and being told no, you're not funny, not intense, you're too young or too old. It's been hard dealing with constant rejection but I knew this is what I've always wanted to do and I built a thicker skin in that process. I never take anything for granted. I appreciate everything that's happened. I'm happy enough as an actor for hire and then I got casted in a David Lynch movie.
The Impossible is one of my favourite films, and you and Ewan were incredible in it. Do you have any favourite tidbits or memories from the shoot you can share?
The discovery of Tom Holland... Spiderman! I knew he would go on to be an incredible thing. Just a wonderful talent. At 14 years old... he had a really special gift and it doesn't surprise me how successful he has been.
Hi Naomi. Would you rather fight one horse sized chocolate bunny or one hundred chocolate bunny sized horses?
One hundred chocolate bunny sized horses!
Hello dear Naomi. How did you achieve the discipline required to do some of the most extenuating films in history?
Drama school, the good work ethic that I was trained in in Australia. I take it seriously... but I also know how to have fun. You want these stories to mean something to people. So you put your blood, sweat and tears into it.
Since you worked with kids on The Book of Henry were there things you learned from them?
You learn so much from these kids. They are so impressive. Their ability to concentrate and tell the truth from a really raw place. It blows me away how they can stand the hours and deliver over and over again.
