Naomi Watts says she took advantage of her dance scenes in the upcoming comedy-drama, While We’re Young.
The 46-year-old admits she indulged her inner dancer while shooting for the movie, in which she played a middle-aged wife wanting to revisit her younger days.
“I have a bit of a frustrated dancer in me. I’ve always loved dancing,” says Watts, adding, “dance was one of the things that led me to acting even though I say I fell in love with acting fairly early on. When I was 16 or 17, I got heavily into dance, but I think I just came into it too late, and I was never going to be really great at it, so I let it go, and the dance led to more acting classes.”
Watts gets to show off her skills when her character Cornelia, who is married to Josh played by Ben Stiller, joins a hip-hop class.
