Aussie actress, Naomi Watts is making headlines today for undergoing an incredible make-under in order to to get into character for her role in an upcoming film. 

Watts, 48, will be staring as Rose Mary Walls in the project which is based on a memoir by journalist Jeannette Walls, The Daily Mail reports. 

In snippets from the film, Watts is seen looking much older than her 48 years. Her hair has been coloured a darker shade of blonde for the performance and it's worn long and messy. 

According to reports, her character decides to live as a homeless woman “as an adventure”, which assumedly is linked to her disheveled appearance in the photos from the set of the film.
