Naomi Watts On ‘The Glass Castle’ & Portraying A Real Person

The film hits theaters this Friday!

BackstageOL’s Dave Morales sat down with Naomi Watts in this backstage interview to talk about Destin Daniel Cretton’s drama The Glass Castle, a film based on Jeannette Walls’s 2005 memoir of the same name.

In the interview, Watts shares how she first got involved with the film, connecting with the family, challenges of playing a “true” person, and more!

The film’s synopsis:

Based on a memoir, four siblings must learn to take care of themselves as their responsibility-averse, free-spirit parents both inspire and inhibit them. When sober, the children’s brilliant and charismatic father captured their imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Meanwhile, their mother abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want to take on the work of raising a family.

The Glass Castle hits theaters August 11th. For more from Watts, check out the full interview below!
