VIDEO: Why Naomi Watts Did a Nude Scene Just 8 Weeks After Giving Birth!

The Mother and Child star reveals why she bared her post-baby body and why she always knew she'd be a mom

Eight weeks after giving birth, the last thing most actresses would want to do is a nude scene. But Naomi Watts took on the challenge for her new film Mother and Child for the sake of her craft. "It was very hard for me to imagine doing, but impossible to avoid with (my character) Elizabeth," she tells iVillage. "That is who she is -- she's a sexual beast!"

In the film, Watts, 41, plays a woman who never wanted to have children. But the actress, who has two sons -- Sasha, 2, and Kai, 1 -- with actor Liev Schreiber, says she always knew she'd be a mom. "It actually surprised me that it took so long, and I still can't believe it," she says. "Every day I wake up to these two beautiful human beings."

Watch our exclusive video interview to find out how becoming a mom has helped her get out of her head and why she loves that Sasha looks just like his dad.
