Naomi Watts is, allegedly, begging Nicole Kidman to help her find a job.
According to New Idea, Naomi Watts didn’t really want to ask Kidman for help. But she’s desperate to film a new project.
After her new movie, Penguin Bloom received a slew of mixed reviews, Watts, allegedly, wants to star in a new movie that will surely become a hit.
“Naomi isn’t super comfortable going cap in hand to her best friend. But she’s taking a deep breath and doing it anyway,” the source said.
Naomi Watts struggling to find work
The insider also claimed that it’s been difficult for Kidman to find work because she never recovered from her failed Princess Diana biopic in 2013.
Unlike Watts, Kidman has, reportedly, found success both on the big screen and on television. And Watts wants what Kidman has.
“Naomi wants what Nicole’s having. And she’s putting the hard word on Nic to cast her in one of her upcoming projects since everything she touches turns into gold. Naomi is particularly interested in working on one of her new Liane Moriarty adaptations and won’t take no for an answer,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. There is no indication that Naomi Watts is asking Kidman for help.
And it’s also not true that Watts wants what Kidman has or that she’s jealous of the latter.
Meanwhile, there has been a slew of rumors surrounding Kidman and her career.
Nicole Kidman feud with Reese Witherspoon is untrue
Last week, the same tabloid also claimed that Kidman and Reese Witherspoon had a falling out.
Witherspoon is, allegedly, upset with Kidman because it seems she doesn’t want to return to Big Little Lies Season 3.
“There is grumbling among cast and crew that Big Little Lies is basically being held hostage by Nicole looking out for herself. A lot of people believed the closeness of this cast would mean they are all in for each other,” the source said.

However, Kidman said during an interview that the return of Big Little Lies depends on its writer and director and not on her.
This proves that the rumors about Naomi Watts, Kidman, and Witherspoon aren’t true.
