Watts and ex on good terms for sake of kids

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

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.”

BE­FORE THEIR SPLIT: Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts.
