Nicole Kidman kept me from giving up acting dreams: Naomi Watts
The Australian actresses have been friends ever since they met on the sets of Flirting in 1991.
Naomi Watts has credited fellow Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman with encouraging her to pursue her acting dreams.

The 44-year-old actress, who is nominated for Oscars this year for The Impossible, had a tough time getting established in Hollywood when she first moved stateside in the early 90s.

But Naomi Watts said some words of encouragement from already A-list pal and fellow Australian ex-pat Nicole Kidman helped her stay motivated, reported Us magazine.

"She kept saying, 'It's just going to take one thing, one thing, Nay, and you know, if you're in a hit film... then everything changes'," Naomi said of Nicole's reassurance during an interview with CBS' Sunday Morning, set to air on February 10.

Naomi Watts and Nicole Kidman, 45, co-starred in the film Flirting back in 1991, and have remained close ever since. Naomi explained that she first moved to Hollywood with a five-year plan, but the exhausting process of audition soon turned it into a 10-year plan. Despite setbacks, however, she ultimately decided to stick it out because she "didn't have a plan B, really."
