Naomi Watts is all smiles as she hits the red carpet at the 2017 Up2Us Sports Gala held at Guastavino’s on Monday (May 15) in New York City.
“Oh yeah, I was very sporty as a kid,” the 48-year-old actress expressed at the gala (via Vogue) honoring Delmy Del Cid, coach of the South Bronx United team; Cara Morey, associate head coach of Princeton’s women’s ice hockey team; Mollie Marcoux Samaan, the Ford Family director of athletics at Princeton University; and Angela Ruggiero, a four-time Olympic ice hockey medalist.
“I did a sport called netball and field hockey,” Naomi added. “A little bit of a lot of different things. My own father was a coach, so when I met [Up2Us Sports founder] Paul Caccamo, there was a little bit of a crossover.”‘
Naomi was joined at the event by one of the evening’s hosts, Dr. David Colbert, Famke Janssen, Gretchen Mol and Michele Hicks.
