Watts: I follow sons’ advice

Naomi Watts often uses her sons as style advisers due to their childlike candour.

The 45-year-old actress shares sons Alexander, six, and Samuel, five, with her partner Liev Schrieber.

And Naomi won’t allow a stylist to give the final word on what dress she’ll be wearing to the Oscars this Sunday, as her little boys are certain to steer her in the right direction.

"My sons? They're very honest," she told E! News.

"My youngest one particularly has been known to say, 'Ewww, Mommy, I don't like that dress!'"

Naomi doesn’t want to be away from her boys for long, so she won’t be attending any Academy Awards pre-parties.

The star simply desires to spend as much time with her tykes as possible.

"[I’ll stay home in the morning] because it's a long day to be away from the kids,” she explained.

Although Naomi has been nominated for Oscars before, this year she isn’t up for a trophy.

The star is delighted she doesn’t have to prepare an acceptance speech, as she is looking forward to relaxing and having a good time.

"I hope I get a good night's sleep the night before," Naomi said.

"It's not so high pressure for me [she's been nominated in the past], so I can just show up and enjoy."

The 86th Academy Awards ceremony, which is hosted by funnywoman Ellen DeGeneres, will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, March 2.
