Audrey Tautou isn’t the only star to earn a coveted fragrance ambassadorship this week. Thierry Mugler has just announced that Naomi Watts will be the new face of their classic scent Angel. And for her part, Watts explains, representing the brand was a natural choice. “It was an easy decision,” she tells PEOPLE. “I think to me, the Angel woman is someone who has many faces and is not afraid to show all facets of her personality. She’s both vulnerable and strong and flirtatious and for me, I guess working as an actor you have to play all those emotions all the time.” In addition a glamorous print campaign that will launch this October, Watts has completed a commercial by Dreamgirls director Bill Condon, appropriately shot in the City of Angels. But as to whether she sees herself as angelic off the screen, the star reveals, “I think every woman likes to be thought of as angelic. Especially in the eyes of men. But I think that you shouldn’t be afraid of your strengths. And that’s exactly what I felt the first time I smelled the perfume. It’s gentle, its soft, it stays with you. It feels strong. To me, it’s not being afraid of showing who you are — embracing who you are.”
