Dazzling onlookers while on the red carpet, Naomi Watts attended the premiere of her new movie “The Impossible” in Madrid, Spain on Monday (October 8).

The 44-year-old actress wore a stunning white knee-length dress with puffed sleeves, heels, and a striped clutch as she posed with her director and castmates at the event.

In the upcoming drama, Naomi plays a woman whose family is torn apart by a tsunami striking the coast of Thailand.

Because the intense flick is short on dialogue (reportedly a mere two pages), the British-born star had to rely on non-verbal ways to get her message across.

At the Toronto International Film Festival, she revealed, “The rest is about physical stuff or groans or calling each other’s names.” Director Juan Antonio Bayona added, “Lots of close-ups too. I could always focus on Naomi’s eyes.”
