Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts, who split in 2016 after 11 years together, do their best to remain friends while raising their two sons, Samuel Kai Schreiber (2008) and Alexander “Sasha” Pete Schreiber (2007).

In a January 2018 interview during Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist, Liev opened up about his split from Naomi.

“It’s always hard, you know? You build a life with someone and things change,” he said. “And I think the way that we’ve looked at it is that we’ll always be partners with these kids.”

“It’s important to support each other,” he emphasized. “I was making some jokes at breakfast about Mommy with the boys and their eyes light up when I talk about her. You can see how important it is to them that their parents care about each other.”

“We’re parents together so we’ll be together for the rest of our lives no matter what and we’re very close,” Schreiber said on CBS This Morning in December 2016. “Hopefully, that never changes and I don’t think it will.”

In an August 2019 interview with Net-a-Porter, Watts said that their amicable relationship post-split is no coincidence.

“We’re doing things very differently. I’m pretty proud of us, corny as that may sound,” Watts said. “We’ve made it our absolute priority to be good and kind to each other and we’re absolutely committed to that.”

In September 2015, Naomi Watts attended the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards as a plus-one for her man Liev Schreiber, but she stole the show anyway.

Naomi, who was introduced to the future father of her children in May 2005 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala, supported Liev, who was nominated for the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work as the leading man in “Ray Donovan.”

Naomi didn’t hold back at the Emmys — both in terms of supporting Liev — with whom she shares two children — and in terms of her outfit.

The actress opted to wear a gorgeous jewel-embellished empire dress by Christian Dior, which she paired with silver “Abel” pumps by Jimmy Choo.

We’re not quite sold on the clutch, but since the rest of her outfit looks incredible, we’ll let it slide.

If nudes are a must for every day, silver heels are definitely a staple for formal events. Grab a pair of shiny Jimmy Choo pumps for yourself at Net-A-Porter, Farfetch, Mytheresa, Nordstrom, and Saks.
