founder’s letter

he art scene in California has really shaped up over the past few years to be another major attraction for our state. A decade or two ago, Los Angeles was a one-industry town, but we’ve now expanded to multiple industries (technology running a close second to Hollywood). Our artistic endeavors are married to these fields, and the thriving community is finally getting the recognition it so rightly deserves.

From amazing organizations like LACMA, MOCA, the Hammer and The Getty in L.A. to fabulous institutions up north (the de Young, SFMOMA Fine Arts Museums, to name a few), our cultural wave is rising. While museums make a splash, galleries are aplenty, popping up in areas, like L.A.’s

Culver City, full of new names to watch and to collect. And where there are galleries, there are artists. Young talents can find affordable space in downtown lofts and warehouses to hone their crafts. Emerging artists are flocking west to fulfill their destinies. Having already created a foundation with the likes of Ed Ruscha, David Hockney and John Baldessari, the climate is perfect for a statewide artists colony. In this design issue, we focus on all things art—from the amazing Pacific Standard Time taking over SoCal institutions to the collectors in our midst and what they are coveting now; from the best investments to the ultimate restaurants with artistic installations enveloping the aesthetic and the food. We also present the home of Dede Wilsey, a leading San Francisco museum supporter (who was integral in resurrecting the de Young). Plus, we visit a Beverly Hills domicile of a collecting couple who live elegantly, but at the same time mix art into their setting with almost casual nonchalance. And let’s not forget our cover subject, Naomi Watts, who, while not a painter or sculptress, is a true artist. Her acting abilities always are at the top of the game. This and so much more within the issue! Our editors did a great job of going to the artistic source to uncover new stories to tell. We look forward to continuing to cover this important cultural movement on a consistent basis. When a revolution is gaining

ne of Richard Dorso’s favorite rituals was to walk from his apartment building on Monday nights to the gallery openings on La Cienega Boulevard. Before he passed away earlier this year at the age of 101, the retired producer told Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) founder Peter Loughrey, “I’ll confess something. I like happy art.” Indeed, more than 400 prized pieces from artists like John Baldessari, Robert Cottingham and Ed Ruscha filled every inch of Dorso’s 1,800-square-foot abode.

ovelist and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Héctor Tobar (Translation Nation and The Tattooed Soldier) now delivers The Barbarian Nurseries (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $27), the essential social narrative of the century set in a gated community in the placid hills of Orange County. When the Torres-Thompson household falls upon economic hardship, they are forced to lay off the gardener and nanny, leaving Araceli, the underpaid Mexican maid, to pick up the pieces and venture into Los Angeles. As far-reaching and exciting as the city it portrays, the novel is a vivid testament to the culture of present-day L.A. and, by a reasonable stretch, the rest of the country. hectortobar.com.

TO WATCH

Color Wheel From her Oakland studio, artist Stevie Howell sees the world in full spectrum BY MICKEY STANLEY

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP Howell in her Oakland studio. Chicago Dog, 2009. Charlie, 2008. A collage of textile swatches.

NATHAN BLUESTONE

S

tevie Howell has the perfect present for dog lovers. The Bay Area artist will visit your home, play with your pet, make some preliminary sketches and head back to her Oakland studio with everything she needs to begin a beautiful homage to your canine companion. Many patrons give them as surprise gifts, requiring the artist to work rather surreptitiously. “I’ve ended up having to secretly take a lot of photos of people’s dogs. I feel like I’m breaking into [their] house,” kids the San Francisco native. Starting at $2,500, the works are not kitschy likenesses, but professionally executed, one-off compositions. The 30-year-old artist earned a post-baccalaureate certificate in painting and drawing at the prestigious School of the Art Institute of Chicago after attending Skidmore College. Howell devotes the same intensity to her abstract works as she transforms everyday experiences into kaleidoscopic swirls brimming with energy. In Gravitron, the chaos and charm of a county fair is illustrated with emotive strokes of pink and orange—looking at it feels as if you’ve just stepped off the ride. (The nonfigural pieces can be viewed and purchased at the Compound Gallery situated in the same building as her studio.) Recently, at the suggestion of her sister, Lawren (a contributing editor at Vogue), Howell created digitally produced textiles inspired by the paint haphazardly strewn across her studio. Going digital allows the artist to stay small and innovative. She says, “you can do as much or as little as you need, unlike the traditional forms of printing [where] you can really only do large orders.” The fabrics, flooded with color and passionately conceived, will be developed into garments. After trying on a basic sample, she admits, “I kind of like wearing a painting.” steviehowell.com. •

hen Katie Holmes attended Max Mara’s Women In Film dinner in June at West Hollywood’s Soho House, her navy double-breasted pantsuit spoke to the Italian brand’s nonchalant elegance. “Her sophisticated yet effortless style matches our aesthetic perfectly,” says Creative Director Laura Lusuardi of the company’s choice for its annual “Face of the Future” award. Since 1951, Max Mara has quietly risen to iconic status with fashions for women who eschew fleeting trends and prefer classic silhouettes that they wear— not vice versa. In addition to an exhibition of the same name at Katie Holmes Moscow’s State Historical Museum, next month’s release of Coats! and Max Max Mara: 60 Years of Italian Fashion commemorates a big Mara’s Nicola Maramotti. anniversary. The book chronicles the company’s signature Coats! (Skira, garment, from inception to present-day shapes, via campaigns $65).

Lusuardi adds, “From the beginning, Max Mara has strived to deliver the highest quality of fabric, the most flattering fit and the most impeccable tailoring— three intrinsic values that have remained true to the brand to this day.” •

Hair Say Seasonal tips from color expert Jerome Molles GO DARKER From rich browns to beautiful reds, fall shades should be more subdued—as seen on the Armani and Versace runways—rather than flashy. BE GENTLE When your hair is wet, don’t dry it vigorously. Squeeze the water out to avoid friction. STAY SAFE Sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner will help keep the integrity of tresses and protect any hue. Molles suggests: Rahua. Marzia’s Salon, 166 Geary St., 13th Fl., S.F., 415-392-2441.

magine everything from drop-in yoga classes and classic facials and massages, to innovative therapies and multifaceted detoxification programs, to a cafe with organic, locally sourced, and (mostly) vegan meals and drinks. The Alchemy Arts Center—located in a historic Mediterranean building in the center of downtown Santa Barbara— is sleek, with Moroccan touches such as bright pillows and ornate mirrors; colorful bottles of oils; and positive words including “passion,” “compassion” and “forgiveness” etched into the stairs that lead up to the treatment rooms. “I focus on people’s intents and what they want to get out of their time here,” says Emma Narachi who opened the Center in March. “We offer a real blend of holistic therapies and cutting edge science.” There’s craniosacral therapy ($120/hour)—a hands-on procedure performed by Narachi, who administers slight movements to the spine, skull, and diaphragm to reduce tension, increase energy, and reconnect mind with body—plus technology like the far-infrared sauna ($60/half-hour), which heats from within the skin’s surface to stimulate blood flow, reduce cellulite, promote cell regeneration and burn upwards of 600 calories per session. These are combined with ancient modalities such as acupuncture ($165/hour) and Chi Nei Tsang ($120/hour), a blend of abdomen massage and meditation techniques to cleanse organs and ease tension. And with Alchemy’s personalized detoxification regimens, long gone are the days of highly restrictive cleanses that leave you grumpy, hungry and less than sharp. Therapeutics and meals—think pureed carrot soup with cinnamon, wheatgrass shots and ginger tea, available for daily delivery—are geared toward personal needs, whether clients live locally or escape to Santa Barbara. “I let down all of my walls for the program they set up for me,” says a client who recently embarked on an Alchemy cleanse that included lymph massage and workouts with a trainer. “It was 100% custom to my goals and intentions. I lost eight pounds in two weeks and I felt so fluid, clean and young.” 35 W. Haley St., S.B., 805899-8811; alchemyartscenter.com. •

STAGE NAME Oliver Messel, In the Theatre of Design (Rizzoli, $75) presents the oeuvre of a real Renaissance man who brought originality to everything he created, whether it was a Hollywood film set or a house in Mustique.

THE SKILLED SET After WWII and through the ’60s, a generation of artists and artisans took a turn toward studio disciplines. Crafting Modernism (Abrams, $65) extensively catalogs the Mid-Century works of everyone from the Eameses and Calder, to Edith Heath and John Kapel.

A VISUAL FEAST Be it a Laguna Beach bungalow’s family hub or the most serene retreat in a Santa Ynez home, beautiful rooms abound in Michael S. Smith, Kitchens and Baths (Rizzoli, $45), the latest volume from California’s interiors icon.

WHAT’S IN STORE

CULTURE BOUND

You might find a Louis Vuitton boutique in a Saint-Tropez villa, at a shiny, futuristic locale on the Vegas strip or right on Moscow’s Red Square. But, as Louis Vuitton Architecture and Interiors (Rizzoli, $85) shows, no matter where the luxury house sets up shop, it takes design very seriously.

The world’s finest works—from the caves at Lascaux to Picasso’s Guernica—all in one big book: The Art Museum (Phaidon, $200).

an Francisco is a very sophisticated city,” says Ben Soleimani. “The people who live there are worldly. They know culture and art and appreciate antiques. And, we had so many clients there already.” So it was the perfect location for Soleimani to open a second stateside showroom for Mansour and Mansour Modern, his family’s rug companies, earlier this spring. With an impressive 50 pieces hanging in the Henry Adams Street space (in addition to luxurious floor displays), “it looks like a museum,” Soleimani says. As Mansour boasts the largest antique rug and tapestry collection in the world, some of their stock probably could sit beside relics and rarities. Though Soleimani rhapsodizes about S.F., it’s L.A. he chose to leave London for to open Mansour in 1990 on Melrose Avenue. Building “a unique storefront” there brought “more of a European flair to the neighborhood,” he says. In 2006, he launched Mansour Modern, a line of contemporary rugs he designs with inspiration from his global travels. This fall, he’ll be introducing his latest project, Ben Soleimani for

He’s using that knowledge and experience to create what he hopes will be the “antiques of the future.” Only second to that passion comes polo. Three to four times a week, you’ll find Soleimani on the fields in Santa Barbara, where he keeps his ponies. “I love the sport because you can never learn enough,” he says. “And I love design because it has no end.

The Minimalists—the early Dan Flavin lights, the Donald Judd boxes—simply eluded display in their domestic settings. “Where are you going to put

ack in 2005 at Jar restaurant, Nancy Silverton slipped behind the bar on Monday nights as guest chef, serving small plates of burrata and burricotti with accents like braised artichoke hearts, salumi and bread. Considering her provenance as co-founder of Campanile and La BreaBakery, throngs soon crowded the entrance weekly at 5:30pm. She would develop the Mozzarella Monday test concept on a bigger scale (teaming with Mario Batali to do it): a Pizzeria, refined Osteria and 2Go mecca under the name Mozza—the right restaurants for L.A. at a moment when casual dining’s hewn tabletops fused with the world of fine linens. Five years old next month and still on the impossiblereservation shortlist, Mozza continues its expansion: a justready sister Pizzeria in Newport and July’s opening in Singapore. Both offer pared-down menus of the original and “the same design, but this time with a budget,” Silverton laughs. There’s also this month’s official release FROM TOP Pizzeria of The Mozza Cookbook from Knopf. The Mozza’s hallmark pies. Silverton and Amy classics are right there for the making: the Pressman on the site butterscotch budino, the craved chopped of Short Order. Nancy’s Chopped Salad.

While this compendium was developed handin-hand with Osteria/Pizzeria Mozza’s brilliant Matt Molina (“He’s the chef, he’s the creator and the executor,” says Silverton), there’s also a side collaboration this fall to further sate the Silverites.

hamburger spot. But, she’s clear that it’s not her burger joint: “Amy [Pressman] is an old friend going back to the days of working together at Spago. She asked me if I would help with the menu. I won’t be running it.” With keenly sourced meats and homemade condiments, it’s artisanal reconceptualization, à la Silverton. The lifelong Angeleno still carves out time to eat out and to travel, and for autumn, she’s looking forward to meals at newcomers like Michael Voltaggio’s long-awaited Ink, and sandwiches at Ink.Sack; Night+Market Thai street-food pop-up; and Vincenti’s Pizzeria il Fico (now open at the old Michel Richard space on Robertson). No matter how frenzied, though, she takes her annual Umbrian sojourn in the summer. “Regional Italian food will be there longer than I’m around. Years ago, I’d come home with armfuls of ideas. It’s still exciting, but what happens now [is] I’ll find interesting ways to tweak a dish.” Indeed, that seems to work when you have the Midas touch. •

ACTRESS NAOMI WATTS IS FULLY CHARGED WITH A RANGE OF ROLES CREATING SOME SERIOUS HOLLYWOOD BUZZ BY MARSHALL HEYMAN PHOTOGRAPHED RICHARD PHIBBS

T

hese days, Naomi Watts is really into bugs. This is not some subversive fetish, but mostly because her four-year-old son, Sasha, with actor Liev Schreiber is obsessed with them. (Their other son, Kai, is two, and more into singing and Lady Gaga. “He’ll walk around saying, ‘Rah rah rah rah rah la la la la la,’” Watts says, referring to “Bad Romance.”) So when a strange creepy-crawly makes a pit stop on the picnic table she’s sitting at in Amagansett, New York, Watts doesn’t even think of squashing it, but rather taking it back to her nearby beach house to share with her family. “Oh my god, Sasha would love that and would probably know the name, too,” Watts says, eyeing the wormlike thingamajig. “It’s very well camouflaged.” One could make the leap writers do in celebrity profiles to say that Watts is one of those actresses who, like the aforementioned insect, morphs into her roles. But it’s perhaps more accurate to say that she’s never shied away from the strange, edgy material other performers wouldn’t touch with a fly swatter. Think of The Ring, which ushered in a whole genre of intelligent-actressin-distress-Asian-remakes; the get-under-your-skin Eastern Promises and 21 Grams, and her real breakout, 2001’s Mulholland Drive— one of the more peculiar movies of the last 20 years.

“I’m not really the go-to comedy girl,” Watts explains. “I love the stupid comedy stuff, banging into posts and all that, but romantic comedies don’t draw me in when I’m reading them. I’m just too cynical, maybe.” Instead, she finds “it’s fun to play with fear. For me, it brings up a lot of different kinds of drama.” Her upcoming movies are similarly eccentric. First on her plate this fall is Dream House, a psychological thriller starring Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, which Watts doesn’t want to discuss for fear of giving any particular plot twists away. “It’s hard to talk about without spoiling it,” she explains. “If I say too much more, it sort of undoes it.” She’s equally mum on her co-stars’ relationship during filming, or if she happened to attend their wedding. “I’m not going to comment on that,” she says. “That’s the end of the conversation.” Also this fall, she’ll appear opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar, Clint Eastwood’s film about cross-dressing FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. She plays his secretary. A small part, she says, but good: “It’s not a showy, flashy part, but it’s a solid one. She’s someone with the strength of her convictions who stands by her words—a woman in a man’s world.” Besides, she adds, when Clint Eastwood calls and asks you to join his cast, “Whether it’s a walk-on or a tour de force role, you just have to say yes.” Watts used to enjoy long shoots in far-flung locations, but now that she has a family, it’s the exact opposite.

In San Francisco, Dede Wilsey’s passion for the arts also endures in her own picturesque home

“I spend a lot of time figuring out who could give us something and what would motivate them,” says Wilsey. If one cause doesn’t move her peers, she’ll pitch another.

lad in a gray Chanel jacket and skirt and Louboutin kitten heels, Dede Wilsey is quickly climbing the stairs as she gives me the run of her home. She may cut a trim figure, but she lives large. Her spacious house is perched atop Pacific Heights, with sweeping views of the bay. Then there’s her art, a formidable collection of names usually found in museums or textbooks: Picasso, Cassat, Degas, Monet, Renoir, Magritte, Rodin. It seems that the only diminutive elements of the home are her three beloved dogs (Twinkle and Dazzle, immaculately white Malteses, and Eliza, a feisty Norwich terrier). To talk with Wilsey is to be in thrall not only to her elocution— a warm trill with crisp enunciation and declarative sentences— but also her self-assuredness. Her father was an Eisenhowerappointed U.S. ambassador; her great-grandfather, the founder of Dow Chemical. Wilsey’s late second husband was the food and real estate magnate Al Wilsey. She retains the air of the debutante she once was, but behind her cultivated speech is a strategic mind with a gift for raising money—big money—for the causes she believes in. She gets the job done. In 1996, she became chairman of the capital campaign to rebuild the city’s ailing art attraction, the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, which had been irreparably earthquake damaged in 1989. By 1998, two bond measures to fund the museum failed to pass with the city’s voters. So, Wilsey got to work finding private donors. “I went down to the director’s office and said, ‘Don’t worry. I will raise the money. I promise you, I will do this,’” she says. “I don’t think a single person believed me.” Leading by example, Wilsey herself gave $10 million of the more than $210 million raised in support of the institution.

In 2005, the bold, copper-encased structure designed by the Pritzker Award-winning architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron opened and instantly became a city landmark. Last year, the de Young welcomed more than two million visitors, making it the fourth most frequented museum in the U.S. “I spend a lot of time figuring out who could give us something and what would motivate them,” says Wilsey, a fixture on social circuits in San Francisco and Napa Valley (where she also has a home). If one cause doesn’t move her peers, she’ll pitch another, like the massive new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, or the Immaculate Conception Academy. “I get to go to interesting places and meet wonderful people. I’m really good at parties. I’ll go up to anyone. Once I was with my son, and I said, ‘Dance me next to that person, double cut in.’ And he said, ‘Don’t tell me, you’re after that poor guy.’” Wilsey spends most of her over-scheduled days in her strategycum-dressing room, clothes lined up on aisles three-deep. There, she attends to the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s board of trustees (of which she’s president) as well as commitments to various charities. “I don’t really have leisure time. There’s no way I could retire. When do you stop being interested in things?” Wilsey asks. She also knows her audience. In the video mock-up for potential de Young patrons, Wilsey noticed that the Baselbased firm used young, thin, black-clad city dwellers from their hometown to represent museumgoers. “I told them we had to redo it. We’re looking for a huge crosssection of donors, and I needed some old and some fat people in there. The young and the thin can’t afford it yet.” “A city supervisor came to meet me here—a wonderful young woman. She asked, ‘I wonder what it feels like to be you—to have power, to have financial independence, to know everybody, but then to have everyone come and ask you for a favor?’ And I said, ‘That’s the funniest question… I mean, who cares what I feel like?’ But I realized it feels great.” •

urfers. Chicano muralists. German émigrés. Aerospace engineers. The cultural landscape of SoCal has always boasted a disparate and electric atmosphere. Add in the area’s wide-open spaces and feel-good weather, and you’ve got perfect climes for artistic revolution. After WWII, the region sparked assemblage sculpture, California’s own version of Pop art, the Light and Space movement, and many other provocative forms of expression. Partly initiated as an oral history research project nearly 10 years ago at the Getty Institute, “Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980” now includes more than 60 museums, galleries and other organizations that have banded together to showcase the era. No other region has ever taken on such a colossal collaborative commemoration. From the social outcasts of the ’70s, to pool photography, to the African American painters and sculptors exploring Black Power, the California experience has become a tour de force in the global art world. C provides a glimpse of nine upcoming retrospectives. pacificstandardtime.org. •

“California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way” houses 350 decorative arts objects that have ornamented the California home.

al Levitt has to be one of the most talented, yet unsung architects in America. His amazing houses range from MidCentury marvels like the Vidal Sassoon house in Beverly Hills to more unusual structures like the Dirks-Dougherty residence in the heart of Bel Air. This abode, with its lofty ceilings, extraordinary log beams and spacious rooms, is no exception of Levitt’s versatile talents. I fell into this job by my old friend fate, I believe. I had decorated for some neighbors (a young family with two small children) and Carolyn Dirks visited them and called me immediately afterwards. Praising the home, she asked if I could re-create it with a twist for the one she shares with her husband Brett Dougherty. On our first meeting, I discovered the couple had bought furniture that completely didn’t match the style of the architecture and had to gently tell them I could not work with it. I could, however, work with the antique pieces they had inherited or bought along the way. Slowly, they donated all the extraneous furnishings to St. Mary’s hospice, and we set about scouring the world for the finest examples of Italian, Portuguese and Swedish furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries. To my surprise, Carolyn had a connoisseur’s eye and allowed me to educate her further in fine furniture and decorative items: Georgian silver, rare tortoiseshell inlay pieces, Han dynasty pottery and terra-cotta, ivory vizagapatam pinwork boxes, and, most importantly, very rare Impressionist works. Together, we learned much about the art and the artists. From Paris I brought in Patricia Marshall, a master dealer who helped us secure museum-quality pieces (mostly from private collections) which include Pablo Picasso (Blue Period), Albert Marquet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Amedeo Modigliani, Alberto Giacometti and Édouard Vuillard. Having had a career in fashion, Carolyn was also open to collecting fashion photography for her office (which contains a spectacular desk that once belonged to King Karl X of Sweden).

T WALTER SHINTANI

he most populated metropolis in the world, Mexico City intoxicates with its vibrant arts scene and creative energy. Layered with a rich history that has left museums, galleries, boutiques, cathedrals and cafes both old and new in its wake, the expanse offers much to uncover. And for a taste of forward-thinking design, and culinary mastery on a global stage, there’s no better place to go. A hotel concierge can be a foremost ally in negotiating the sprawling megacity. And while the travel advisories shouldn’t be ignored, a chaperone is not always a necessity. Have a hotel car drop you at centers like Plaza de la Constitución, Chapultepec Park and the trendy Avenida Presidente Masaryk for exploration. The city’s just shy of 600 square miles—but best seen by foot. >>

select museum groups around a dozen times annually, so an invitation to July’s fête to inaugurate the third installation was all the more coveted. There, heavy hitters in Napa wine and art (think Bill and Deborah Harlan; Pam and Dick Kramlich of Bond Estate) joined an international who’s who for “Politics is Personal”: artworks by the likes of Bruce Nauman, Sigmar Polke, Ryan Gander and Piotr Uklanski. Among those in attendance— feasting on chef Evan Shively’s pizza and fresh-shucked oysters—were museum directors (à la Joe Rosa), curators (Sandra Vincent, Suzanne Modica), gallerists (Sabrina Buell), artists (James Turrell, Matias Faldbakken) and S.F. design players (Abby Turin, Yves Behar). With a nod to performance art, a group of Thai and Bay Area artists helped gallery darling Rirkrit Tiravanija create an enormous cave mural themed “police the police.” (Former Chief of Police and S.F. Mayor Frank Jordan is currently making a Sgt. Peppers-esque diagram for it.) Participation also extended to the permanent James Turrell skyspace pavilion and pool, close to the excavated cave. Given swim caps, guests could go underwater and into a glowing white cube. A teak bench within offers respite to gaze up at an 8-foot square ceiling opening. A changing color spectrum intensifies the experience. The image of that skyspace—with Turrell’s blessing to use it—will soon adorn the first vintage with the Stonescape label, out in 2012. It’s the perfect blend. •

ELECTRIC WATTS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 102

‘Where does it shoot and how long for?’ That wasn’t a question before.” “Supporting parts are great,” she adds. “I love them. You get a halfway normal life. And I’m not averse to doing some kind of television down the road.”

Though some actresses say that getting older means the roles dry up, Watts insists she’s had the opposite experience. “I actually have found the parts are still coming to me, and they’re just better parts.” They may be better, buts it’s harder to keep in shape for them. “These days I have to do a lot more,” Watts says. “I’m over 40, and my body is still in damage control after children. And I like my food. I don’t deny myself anything, really. And I think I’ve gotten to like it more as I get older. You’re around food more, especially cooking with kids. You can’t go ahead and cook the same boring meal.” Though she owns a house in Brentwood, Watts and Schreiber have made downtown Manhattan their permanent residence. In addition to Amagansett, they also keep a house upstate and travel to Watts’ native Australia at least once a year. “Liev is a New Yorker and he’s very connected to the theater,” Watts says. (They’d like to do a play together, “but I have total stage fright. I’m scared.”) “I’ve always been out on the road, but you can’t really take a New Yorker out of New York. My brother [photographer Ben Watts] also lives there, so it was an easy move but a hard adjustment. I don’t miss driving, not at all, but L.A. is so laid back.” The kids, she explains, “love it wherever they go. Sasha’s home is New York, but that’s because his toys are there.” The funny thing about parents who make creepy, edgy movies: It’ll take a while before their kids can see them. Eventually, Watts expects Schreiber will “get a lot of props” for playing Sabretooth in Wolverine and she will earn some mileage out of King Kong. “You’ve got dinosaurs, a big gorilla, action. It’s too scary for now, but at least I’ve got that to fall back on. I’m going to milk that one.” Still, she wouldn’t mind voicing a shark or a baby pig one of these days. Don’t expect any sort of shift in what we’ve come to know as a Naomi Watts movie, however. “People have said, ‘Are you going to change your interests?’ My taste is my taste and that’s not going to change. And hope-

fully when my kids grow up, they’ll understand my choices.” For now, at least, they barely know what she does for a living. “They see me getting hair and makeup ready, and they think that’s my job,” Watts says. “You try to explain, but they think my workplace is a trailer. Then they see one on the street and say, ‘There’s Mummy’s work.’” She laughs. “Really, they do.” •

Today the house is a mix of the finest furniture, quirky, charismatic accessories and cherry-picked artworks, all of which blend perfectly into a very relaxed setting to complement the easygoing nature of this couple whom I consider to be very dear friends. Together, we became educated in Impressionism and had untold fun hunting down rarities whilst traveling to Paris and London to inspect the pieces. This job that I thought would be a quick fluff-up actually became a real learning experience for me. It taught me much about important furniture and how to combine artwork of many periods to create decorative harmony. •

When artists Walter and Margaret Keane of San Francisco painted actress Natalie Wood (with her poodle Rembrandt), it was clear that husband and wife saw the world very differently. At the time, Margaret used her husband’s name to sell her work—the rights to which soon became a point of contention in their divorce hearings. Mrs. Keane challenged her ex to a “paint-off” in federal court to prove who was really behind the famed “big eyes.” She won the suit in 1986 and is now the subject of an upcoming Tim Burton film starring Kate Hudson.
