Naomi Watts has confessed she came close to walking away from a career as an actress when she began to have doubts about whether she could be successful in the profession.

The Oscar-nominated star struggled to get by in Hollywood and wanted a stable job with regular income, reported InStyle magazine.

"In my mid-twenties I thought about it many times but I pretty much worked out there was nothing else I could do and resigned myself to the fact that I would just be an actor for hire," she said.

The 44-year-old starlet now looks back on her early struggles in the movie industry as a huge motivation to get even better at her craft.

"It turned out exactly how it was supposed to. If I had got success handed to me at an early age I think I would have made terrible choices. I've had to work hard for everything.

Nothing has ever come easily to me. I never won a raffle, you know? I'm not that person."
