Liev Schreiber Breaks Silence on Split With Naomi Watts: ‘We’re Very Close’

Posted on

Liev Schreiber is finally opening up about his recent split from longtime partner Naomi Watts.

In an interview on CBS This Morning Thursday, the Ray Donovan star was asked about the separation and whether the change is frightening.

“Yeah. Of course it is,” he answered. “But, you know, we’re parents together so we’ll be together for the rest of our lives no matter what and we’re very close. Hopefully, that never changes and I don’t think it will.”

The former couple announced the end of their relationship in a joint statement to PEOPLE in late September. They share two children and were together for 11 years.

Despite their split, they have appeared to be amicably separated. Just one week after they announced their decision, Watts took to Instagram to share a sweet photo of Schreiber and the couple’s sons Sasha, 8, and Samuel, 7.

Earlier that same week, Schreiber reached out to Watts by commenting on another one of her Instagram posts, writing “Happy Birthday Sweetheart.”

Watts also recently spoke out about their separation. “I feel I’m in a good place in my life and I want to make sure my kids are healthy, my kids are happy and things are going to go well,” Watts, 48, told The Daily Telegraph Australia. “Those are my hopes for me and for all of us.”
