The 44-year-old actress stars with Ewan McGregor and rising star Tom Holland in the true story of Maria Belon and her family, who were holidaying in Thailand in 2004 when the Indian Ocean tsunami struck.
Naomi has a fear of water from a terrible experience when she nearly drowned as a teenager, but had to put it aside to film scenes in a water tank.
She said: "That brought up some memories, obviously nothing to the size of what this family went through.
"But a fear of water remains with me and I don't like waves at all - I'm happy in a glass ocean. Being in the water tank was with no question the hardest physical work I've ever done on a film."
