Naomi Watts is one the most recognized actresses in Hollywood, who recently acted in one of the most critically acclaimed movies of 2014 — Birdman. Ryan Seacrest only had a few select seconds to speak with the actress on the 2015 Oscars red carpet this evening, and what did he interview her about?


Earlier this morning, Naomi Watts’ brother, Ben Watts, posted a photo on Instagram of a frittata Naomi had made earlier that morning. He wrote: “Oscars count down #Naomiwatts #fritatta game is tight …. Look out for it on the #redcarpet today #shhhhh”

Seacrest saw the photo, and then asked Naomi for her recipe – because he’s Ryan Seacrest.

Red carpet hosts have been attracting intense criticism recently for focusing so intensely on women’s fashion. So this year, we’ve heard – and expect to hear – more questions directed at actresses about the non-profits they support or the new projects they plan to work on. It’s currently trending on Twitter under the hashtag #AskHerMore. Looking at Naomi Watts, Ryan Seacrest was probably searching for something – anything – that wasn’t strictly limited to dresses. He did ask her about her dress. And then he came up with eggs.

You can’t quite totally blame the host – he was trying. And looking at the frittata, it does appear to be excellent. There appears to be at least one heirloom tomato in there (a topping delicacy) and some nice leafy greens. So you’re correct Ben Watts. Naomi Watts’ #frittatagame is tight.
