Actress and mom Naomi Watts opens up about her longtime love Liev Schreiber in a new interview with Marie Claire.
The Mother & Child star says it was love – or at least lust – at first sight when the pair crossed paths five years ago.
“We met here and there before the night we knew something was going to happen. It was never the right time, or we were with other people…. When we finally saw each other at the Met Ball five years ago, we were both single and very aware of each other in the room. It was kind of an intense chemistry. Definitely. I don’t know about love at first sight, but there was a strong desire for one another.”
So are there wedding bells in their future?
“We’ll see,” Naomi says. “It’s never been that important to me. If it was important to our children, I would do it in a heartbeat. We’ll see.”
Naomi and Liev are parents to boys Sasha, 2 1/2, and Kai, 1.
