Watts and Schreiber no longer part­ners

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — E! News

An­other long­time Hol­ly­wood cou­ple have de­cided to call it quits. Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts an­nounced they are split­ting af­ter 11 years to­gether.

“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,” the cou­ple said in a joint state­ment Mon­day. “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, who never mar­ried, have two chil­dren to­gether, Alexan­der “Sasha,” 9, and Sa­muel, 7.

A source told E! News that there wasn’t one spe­cific thing that led to the tim­ing of the split. In­stead, “it’s been a long time com­ing.” The insider added that they will con­tinue to live in both Los An­ge­les and New York while they raise their two chil­dren.

Schreiber and Watts have re­cently been seen mak­ing the film fes­ti­val rounds to­gether to pro­mote their up­com­ing film, “The Bleeder.” The duo were spot­ted look­ing happy at the Venice Film Fes­ti­val and Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val this month.

Watts was, how­ever, no­tice­ably miss­ing by Schreiber’s side at the Emmy Awards on Sept. 18.
