She told Los Angeles Confidential's Spring Fashion Forward issue: "This isn't the life I imagined. In many ways, it's far, far better, and yet I look at what's possible — I mean, look at Frances McDormand or Helen Mirren or, come on, Meryl Streep — and I go, 'Okay, there's still a lot of room to grow and improve'."

And whilst Watts would love to emulate their careers, she fears being held "hostage" by the paparazzi.

"It's tough. The whole paparazzi thing is a big downer. I wish they weren't around so often. I probably should care more about the way I look and how I go out. But I can't — I'm a mom. I have to get out the door quickly. Some days I've got it under control, but some days I don't."

"I just wish they weren't around so often capturing those awful moments. Because let's face it: Everyone has their good days and bad days. But whatever — it's not going to make me change my life. I'm not going to be held hostage,” she said.
