Naomi Watts And Liev Schreiber Split After 11 Years Together

Sad times.

Another week, another Hollywood split.

Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have called it quits after 11 years together.

The couple, who have two children together, confirmed they had decided to go their separate ways on Monday (26 Sept), just days after Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced they were to divorce.

In a joint statement, they said: “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.”

Naomi, 47, and Liev, 48, added: “While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.”

The couple have been in a relationship since 2005, after getting together at the Met Gala.

They never married, but are parents to two sons: Alexander ‘Sasha’, nine, and seven-year-old Samuel Kai.

Earlier this month they were seen putting on an affectionate display at the Toronto International Film Festival when they walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet.

They were at the event to attend the premiere of their latest film, ‘The Bleeder’, about heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner.
