Naomi Watts Steps Out in New York City Following Liev Schreiber Split
By Antoinette Bueno
Naomi Watts was spotted walking her dog in New York City on Tuesday morning, one of the first sightings of the 47-year-old actress since ET reported exclusively that she and actor Liev Schreiber are separating after 11 years of dating.
Watts was makeup-free during the outing, dressed casually in a green jumpsuit, a black blazer, and high-top Vans sneakers. The Australian star remained low-key in her aviator sunglasses, carrying a simple black Gucci bag.
Schreiber and Watts had been dating since 2005, and share two sons together -- 9-year-old Alexander "Sasha" Pete and 7-year-old Samuel "Sammy" Kai. In a joint statement to ET on Monday, the pair said they were looking forward to joint parenting.
"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," the statement reads. "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 split is surprising given that earlier this month, the two were still very much together, holding hands on the red carpet of the Toronto Film Festival as they promoted their film, The Bleeder, which they both star in.
