Longtime couple Naomi Watts and her partner, Liev Schreiber, have broken up :(
The 2 beautiful Hollywood actors, who have been together for 11 years, confirmed their separation in a joint statement that was released earlier today (27th September).
The “King Kong” actress and the “Ray Donovon” actor first met at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual costume ball in 2005. Although they were never married, the 2 are parents to 8-year-old Alexander (Sasha) Pete Schreiber and 7-year-old Samuel Kai Schreiber.
“Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple. It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship,” said the couple.
“While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.”
Watts and Schreiber were last seen together at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) to promote their new film, titled “The Bleeder”. They have also appeared in several movies together over the years, including “43” (2006) and “The Painted Veil” (2006).
At the Emmys last week, where Schreiber was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, the actor and his son Sasha can be seen looking dapper in matching suits.
