Nabbing herself yet another cover girl spot, Naomi Watts is featured in the October 2011 issue of More magazine.

The Aussie actress posed for a multi-page spread shot by Peggy Sirota while opening up to the publication about her relationship with late actor Heath Ledger.

In a rare moment of openness, Miss Watts said, "We had a beautiful relationship, only a couple of years, but he was a man who was completely full of joy, and there was a lot of laughing and affection. He was really a very special soul and made a great impact on my life."

The 42-year-old - who is readying for the release of two new movies "Dream House" and "J Edgar" - added, "(Ledger was) a great actor, but I know there was so much more to come. And it’s a tragedy for his little daughter. Not knowing my father always made me feel like a piece of myself was missing or unknown. Not reachable. Growing up, there was this wondering what he would think of me or what I would think of him."
