Naomi Watts spills on ‘great sex’ with Billy Crudup, favorite positions
Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup are currently enjoying the blissful early stages of their relationship. In a recent interview, the actress candidly spoke about their satisfying and fulfilling sex life, which has only gotten better since their wedding three months ago. Watts expressed her belief that sex becomes more pleasurable when the fear of unwanted pregnancy is removed from the equation. According to the Daily Mail, she shared her thoughts at a Hampton Bays event, saying, “I personally think sex becomes more pleasurable when you take out the fear of making babies.” The 54-year-old playfully added, “What is that expression? ‘Closed for business, open for pleasure.’ It feels more like, ‘I’m going to do this for myself’ because you’re more confident with yourself, you’ve had experience, you’re wiser.”
When asked about her preferred sex position, Watts cheekily replied, “On top, underneath. Right now, I’m not fussy.” She emphasized the importance of communication in the bedroom, stating that it is the key to unlocking intimacy and navigating passion, especially in midlife. During the conversation titled “Unlocking Intimacy and Navigating Passion in Midlife,” the “King Kong” star explained, “If you can talk to your partner, if you can be honest and have a really authentic conversation and take away the awkwardness… they will be empathetic and that’s hot.”
Watts also shared a personal anecdote about her early days of dating Crudup in 2017. She revealed that she used estrogen patches during intimacy due to going through menopause in her 30s. She admitted feeling nervous about her new partner seeing the patches and described the challenges of removing the sticky residue. Despite the awkwardness, Watts praised Crudup for his empathy and understanding. She recalled, “He knew what cues to follow. He was 100 percent empathetic, and I can safely say we went on to have, you know, pretty great sex that night.”
The actress further emphasized the importance of embracing her current phase of life and acknowledging the sexual desires many women experience at her age. Watts and Crudup began their relationship in 2017 and tied the knot in New York City in June. Watts shared a photo of their courthouse wedding on Instagram, captioning it “Hitched!” In the picture, she looked stunning in a white Oscar de la Renta dress, holding a simple bouquet of flowers, while Crudup looked dapper in a navy suit and white button-up shirt.
Crudup, who shares a 19-year-old son named William with his ex Mary-Louise Parker, left her when she was seven months pregnant for actress Claire Danes. Watts, on the other hand, previously dated Liev Schreiber for a decade. Although they split in 2016, they continue to co-parent their two children, Sasha and Kai.

The 54-year-old joked, “What is that expression? ‘Closed for business, open for pleasure.’

The “King Kong” star called communication “key” during the conversation, which was entitled: “Unlocking Intimacy and Navigating Passion in Midlife.”
She explained, “If you can talk to your partner, if you can be honest and have a really authentic conversation and take away the awkwardness … they will be empathetic and that’s hot.”
The Oscar nominee noted that when she and Crudup, 55, first started dating in 2017, she used estrogen patches during intimacy.
“I was nervous that my new lover was going to see it,” Watts, who has been open about going through menopause in her 30s, recalled.
She explained that the sticky residue from the patch “took days” to come off.
“I went into the bathroom just before it would start and I’d be in there [scrubbing it off] and then I’d come out. And my gorgeous partner said, ‘Are you OK? Is everything OK?’” she went on.
She credited the “Morning Show” star with knowing “how to behave” once she “brought honesty into the room despite how awkward and hard” it felt.
“He knew what cues to follow,” Watts remembered. “He was 100 per cent empathetic and I can safely say we went on to have, you know, pretty great sex that night.”
Later on, she emphasized the importance of “leaning into” her current phase of life and acknowledging that “a lot of women are horny at this age.”
