Naomi Watts - Naomi Watts does her own laundry

Naomi Watts is determined to lead a normal life.

'The Impossible' star - who is nominated for a Best Actress Oscar on February 24 - has revealed it is ''exhausting'' juggling her career and motherhood but she tries to do it with as little help as possible because she wants to be hands-on with her children.

The 44-year-old actress, who has two sons, Alexander, six, and Samuel, five, with her long-term partner Liev Schreiber, told USMagazine.com: ''It's pretty exhausting. It's so great, it's the best thing. Most high rewards you can have in anything, but it's definitely exhausting being a mom.

''I do my own laundry, but I sometimes have help. I cook. I definitely don't have a chef.''

Naomi previously claimed she rarely gets recognised by her fans and gets ''pushed aside'' so people can meet Liev.

She said: ''I never get recognised on the street. I'm lucky that way.

''People see me as the dolled-up movie-star type on the red carpet, but in real life, I don't look anything like that. I blend easily into a crowd.''

Naomi recently admitted she was pleased her forthcoming movie 'Queen of the Desert' has been delayed because she wants to spend time with her family following a heavy period shooting 'Diana' and 'The Impossible'.

She said: ''It's still a way's off. I don't know yet. Hopefully, it will happen. I just can't travel again right now because I did a lot of travelling last year. It's been a big year and it's time for me to be home with the kids.''
