Mother and Child, the very strong film about motherhood and all the wrong reasons to engage in it, was produced on a relatively small budget.
So the creative team must have been beside themselves when they needed to show Naomi Watts‘ pregnant belly and realized they didn’t have to order out for prosthetics–she was really preggers!
And Naomi was not the least bit shy about it, according to writer/director Rodrigo Garcia.
He says that Naomi has a bawdy sense of humor and was extremely unselfconscious about showing her pregnant tummy on the set in Mexico and even letting complete strangers line up and photograph it.
But understandably, once the baby popped out, that was the end of that!
