Establishing herself as a household name in the acting arena, Naomi Watts has cultivated a highly successful, multifaceted career across a range of film and television.
Born in Britain and raised in Australia, Watts began her acting career in Australian television show Home and Away.
It wasn't long before she moved onto the Hollywood scene and starred in major motion pictures such as King Kong (2005), The Impossible (2012), and The Divergent Series trilogy (2014-2016).
Most recently however, Watts has made headlines for her debut into the wellness space.
She announced she was launching Stripes, her beauty and wellness brand for menopausal women, in October later this year.
What is Naomi Watts’ net worth?
As of 2022, Naomi Watts’ net worth is estimated to be approximately $35 million US, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Home and Away has helped launch several Aussie actors into the Hollywood stratosphere, including the likes of Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher and the late Heath Ledger.
However, after moving to Los Angeles in 1993, Watts’ acting career began to accelerate and she landed her first lead role in Mulholland Drive in 2001.
That was shortly followed by a feature role in film The Shaft.
The momentum gathered from these two films saw Watts consistently landing successful roles and allowed her successful career to stretch over decades.
Notably, two of her most critically acclaimed works were her lead role in The Impossible, and 21 Grams - both of which earned her nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actress.
Watts now resides in her recently renovated Manhattan apartment with her two children - shared with ex-partner and fellow actor Liev Schrieber.
Although Watts’ acting feats are far from over, the 53-year old has made news headlines more recently, following the announcement of her entrance into the wellness sphere, with the launch of her brand, Stripes.
Stripes is described as a wellness brand for menopausal women - a previously neglected market - and aims to de-stigmatise negative discourse around menopause as a whole.
Although the celebrity wellness sphere is becoming increasingly oversaturated, Watts has offered a fresh perspective on wellness by finding her niche in menopausal women.
She wrote on her Instagram: “I think it’s time to see women in this phase of life or this age group be well represented.
"We’ve been under-served in media, stories and marketing far too long. Particularly since more than 1 billion people worldwide will be menopausal by 2025."
