Now Liev Schreiber And Naomi Watts Have Split Up
Tough times in Hollywood.

Hollywood has experienced its second major break-up in one week, as Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts reveal their separation.
The couple released a joint statement late on Monday (September 26) acknowledging that they've ended their relationship 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," Schreiber and Watts told E! News. "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.
"While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy."
While they were never married, Schreiber and Watts were parents to two young sons—Sasha and Samuel Kai.
The couple were always intensely private, apparently out of a desire not to let publicity around their romance distract from their work in the eyes of the public.
Prior to meeting and falling in love with Schreiber, Watts was involved in a long-term relationship with the late Dark Knight star Heath Ledger.
Schreiber is currently prepping for the fifth season of his Emmy Award-nominated series Ray Donovan, while Watts will appear in next year's Twin Peaks revival.
They're also appearing together in festival darling The Bleeder, starring Schreiber as Muhammad Ali's infamous 1975 heavyweight title opponent Chuck Wepner.
Schreiber and Watts's separation follows less than a week after Angelina Jolie shockingly filed for divorce from her husband Brad Pitt.
