Divorce Month: Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber Seperate After 11 years
Following reports that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in the process of divorcing each other, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber have followed suit, ending their 11-year-old relationship.
Naomi and Liev have two children, Samuel (7) and Alexander (9) together and have announced their separation in a joint statement.
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.
While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.
Naomi and Liev started dating in 2005, admitting they never felt pressured into getting married.
In March this year, Naomi had admitted how their hectic work schedules affect the time they have with their children.
She told Entertainment Tonight:
There are days where you feel like you’re supermom and doing really well and got it handled, and then there are days where you’re like, “Ah! I can’t do this!”. It’s like any working mum, I think. It’s a balance.
