After her parents divorced, Watts — who was 4 at the time — spent years moving across England with her mother and older brother.

“I went to nine different schools,” said Watts, 54. “Started off and Kent. Moved to Cambridge for a while. We lived in Norfolk, We lived in Suffolk, in Wales — that was where my grandparents were. So, a lot of moving, a lot of new schools, a lot of reinventing myself.”

2. She is friends with her ex.

“I'm pretty proud of us,” Watts says of her relationship with actor Liev Schreiber, with whom she shares kids, Sasha, 16, and Kai, 13. The two broke up in 2016 after 11 years together, but “we've made it our absolute priority to be good and kind to each other, and we're absolutely committed to that.”
