Naomi Watts loves to ditch high heels

Actress Naomi Watts isn't skilled at doing her own hair and make-up and tends to walk around her home with wet tresses.

Naomi Watts enjoys dressing up for red carpet appearances but wishes she didn't have to the wear high heels.

The British-born Australian star claims that while she may make glamorous couture gowns look effortless, it's the matching shoes that put her out of her comfort zone at swish events.

"I do enjoy the red carpet for the reason that you get to express yourself," she shared with New Beauty magazine. "But, ordinarily, I would never put on high heels unless I absolutely had to."

Naomi, who has been in a relationship with her actor beau Liev Schreiber since 2005, admits she doesn't bother to wear much make-up when at home, as she would rather focus on spending time with her sons, Alexander, eight, and Samuel, seven.

"I’m one of those people who walks out the door with wet hair all the time," she said, adding that her everyday beauty routine is very simple. “If anything, maybe I put on some concealer, blush and mascara, but often not even that."

The two-time Academy Award nominated actress also sits on the fence in regards to the Botox debate, but remains very diplomatic about the general use of plastic surgery in Hollywood.

“Personally, I feel for me it’s tough to do Botox — but it’s also tough not to! Sometimes, I think I need the help. Whatever anyone else chooses is fine with me, no judgment,” she explained. “Of course, I want to look the best I can, but I am playing characters that should match my age and the women and the material that I am interested in are usually going through something. But... I’ll never say never.”

And while she’s not getting Botox treatments yet, she is a huge fan of the Triad Facial (a mix of microdermabrasion, followed by LED light therapy and a gentle peel) and some well applied makeup.
