British actress Naomi Watts.
Oscar-nominated actress Naomi Watts has worked with Hollywood icons such as David Lynch and Sean Penn, but admitted Saturday that a magpie stole her scenes in "Penguin Bloom," premiering at the Toronto film festival.
Watts plays Sam Bloom in the real-life drama about a mother who becomes paralyzed in an accidental fall, but is pulled out of despair by caring for an injured baby bird named Penguin.
"That made me nervous. How do we get a performance out of a bird and, you know, magpies are famously not super friendly," Watts told a virtual news conference.
The movie used some animatronics and CGI, but mostly "a multitude" of live birds, confirmed director Glendyn Ivin.
"They absolutely stole the scenes every single day," said Watts, describing how one used the bathroom on her head on the first day of filming.
Speaking from her home in Australia Sam Bloom said the real Penguin had "brought a bit of excitement and happiness into our house" after the accident "made everyone sad."
With a pandemic and a closed Canadian border forcing Hollywood stars and media to remain home, North America's biggest film festival has scrambled to find socially-distanced ways to present this year's line-up, with movies premiering online and at drive-in screenings.
"In terms of preparing my younger self for fame, I would honestly just say you can't take that stuff seriously. And you can't let it stop you living your life, say Orlando Bloom.

The awards had been set to take place on Jan. 31 in downtown Los Angeles, but organizers scrapped that date as the Omicron variant sparked a new wave of COVID-19 infections.
