Watts and ex on good terms for sake of kids
LIEV Schreiber is doing “great” following his split from Naomi Watts, although he believes he will “always” have a relationship with his ex for the sake of their two children.
The couple ended their 11-year relationship in 2016, but have remained on amicable terms for the sake of their two children, Sasha, 10, and eight-year-old Sammy, and the 49-year-old actor thinks they will always have a bond because of the kids.
When asked how he is coping now by TV Week magazine, he said: “In the case of me and Naomi, we’re always going to have a relationship because we have children. So it’s important we work together well in that way. So far, it’s been great.”
And the Ray Donovan star thinks it’s vital both parents take on their fair share of parental duties, even though they are no longer together.
He said: “For me, it’s our kids (that are the most important).
“It’s important we find ways to fill in the cracks with each other.”
Although Schreiber is coping well following the break-up, Watts isn’t doing as well and has recently admitted she has “good days and bad days”.
Speaking previously, she said: “I mean, I’m single. I’m co-parenting. I’m doing okay.
“There are good days and bad days…
“Liev and I are on great terms and we’re trying to do our absolute best for the sake of the children, and we hope to keep moving forward in that way.”
The King Kong actress isn’t bitter towards her ex beau and has hailed him as a “fantastic” father.
She said: “He’s a fantastic dad, a wonderful, wonderful man and we still want the absolute best for each other.
“So that’s pretty much all I’ll say.”
However, the Shut In actress has found being single has allowed her to focus on her career and she admits she will only take on projects that she can “connect” with.
She said: “I’m here to tell the stories. Not just to go to work and get paid by great actors and directors… it’s more than that. It has to be stuff that you’re connecting with, if it’s bringing something back into your own life.”
