Naomi Watts opens up about split

Naomi Watts is "in a good place" after her split from Liev Schreiber.

The pair ended their 11-year relationship in September and Naomi, 48, says the most important thing now is ensuring that their sons, Samuel, seven and nine-year-old Alexander, are happy.

She told Australia's Daily Telegraph: "I feel I'm in a good place in my life and I want to make sure my kids are healthy; my kids are happy and things are going to go well. Those are my hopes for me and for all of us.

"I feel like change is always scary, but that's only because transition for anyone is new and you wonder how things are going to go."

Following their split, Naomi was spotted in the audience at the 49-year-old actor's new Broadway play, 'Les Liaisons Dangereuses' and she believes it is vital for their children that things stay cordial between them.

She previously said: "He's the father of my kids. So it was important to support him.

"I was very curious to see this and all of his work.

"The play is fantastic and really I hope everyone gets to see it because he does some extraordinary work up there."

The couple announced their split in a joint statement, where they said they felt the "best way forward" for the two of them - and for their family - was to "separate as a couple".

They explained: "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. While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy."
