Naomi Watts is not feeling “skittish” talking about menopause.
At 54, the actor has said that she rejects the notion that menopause marks the end of one’s life. So as a result, she’s raising awareness on the realities of taboo menopausal symptoms by getting candid about dryness and lubrication.
To show just that, she captured a “woman’s hormonal bookends” by recreating a tampon ad she did when she was 15 and giving it a modern twist.
In her Instagram post, a young Watts is seen with her hand under her chin with the question, “When can I start using tampons?” above her head. In the updated version, Watts is in the same pose, this time the question reads, “When can I start using lube?”
