Naomi Watts says screams in "King Kong" remake reflect modern woman

Naomi Watts knew the role of Ann Darrow in &to=http://english.pravda.ru/main/2001/09/11/14859.html' target=_blank>"King Kong" was one that demanded a strong set of pipes.

Watts, who stars as Darrow in Peter Jackson's big-budget remake of the 1933 classic, says her character's screams are part of movie lore just as much as the big, plane-swatting ape.

"It's funny, the whole scream thing, because you don't really scream in real life," Watts told The Associated Press in a recent interview. "If there's truly anything scary, then you would almost swallow it. And if there's a mouse nearby, you'd squeal: `Aaiiee!'

"Where does a scream come from? It's really movies, I think."

Though Watts certainly lets out a few choice cries, Jackson's "King Kong" isn't quite as filled with the head-flung-backward, throat-rattling shrieks that packed the original or the 1976 "King Kong."

Russia's Ministry for Foreign Affairs is seriously concerned about the state of health of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Sergei Skrypal's niece, Victoria Skripal, said that her uncle had already died.
