Liev & Naomi Announce Split After 11 Years Together

On the heels of the Brangelina divorce, another stunning Hollywood couple calls it quits. 

Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts have split, according to a statement released to Access Hollywood on Monday.

The couple, who live together in Soho in New York City with their two sons Alexander, 9, and Samuel, 7, have been together for 11 years but never married.

The couple says 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.”

Their statement continues, “While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.”

In the past month, the pair was on the red carpet together as recently as September 10 at the Toronto Film Festival promoting their film ‘The Bleeder” which features both actors in the lead roles.
