Naomi Watts, who played Tom Holland's mother in "The Impossible" movie, is all praise for the 25-year-old actor.

"(It’s) so wonderful. I’m so happy for him," the 53-year-old British actress told Comic Book Movie on Wednesday. "I always knew that Tom would go on and have a pretty outstanding career."

Watts explained that she knew he would be successful even before he earned Spider-Man's character. "That’s just, you know, not something that came to mind, but I knew that he had all of the goods," she shared.

Referring to the movie they did together, "The Impossible," which dropped in 2012, the actress said: "This was a kid who was doing his first movie, had unbelievable access to emotions, had great discipline and whether or not that comes from his dance and athletic background."

Besides praising Holland, the actress also spoke about the actor's family for being supportive of his career.

"They’re a really solid team of people there supporting him," she said, adding: "He’s off on his own now, of course, but just having a really good foundation…you’re going to be up for all of the challenges in our industry that play out if you’ve got a good family. It doesn’t surprise me is what I’m trying to say!"

"The Impossible" revolves around a couple - Maria and Henry - who spends Christmas in Thailand with their three kids. Holland played one of the kids named Lucas. The movie was helmed by director J. A. Bayona.

On the work front, Watts will be next seen in a movie, "Infinite Storm," which is scheduled for March 25 release. The flick is helmed by directors Małgorzata Szumowska and Michał Englert.

The actress will be seen in a TV miniseries, "The Watcher," which is under post-production. She will also appear in the movies "Goodnight Mommy" and "The Friend."

Holland, on the other hand, will be next seen in Fred Astaire's biopic, which is currently under pre-production. The actor will also feature in a TV series, "The Crowded Room," which is also under pre-production.

The actor was recently featured in an action-adventure movie, "Uncharted," which dropped on Feb. 18.
