Liev Schreiber has admitted he used to resent Naomi Watts' level of fame when they first starting dating and blamed her for the intrusive media attention their relationship received
Liev Schreiber used to resent Naomi Watts' level of fame.
The 41-year-old actor - who has two children, 21-month-old Alexander and four-month-old Samuel, with the Australian beauty - admits he struggled to deal with the constant media attention that accompanied his romance with Naomi and initially held her responsible for the unwanted disruption to his life.
He said: "As an actor, I think I'd never kind of reached the heights of fame that Naomi had, and so when she came into my life it was a real test on our relationship.
"I didn't like that she was bringing all that attention with her and I think I probably blamed her for it in the beginning. But after a while, I acclimated to it and then, of course, Alexander was born and I had to acclimate to it all over again."
Liev also revealed he is keen to move the family to Naomi's native Australia as he thinks it's the perfect place to bring up children.
Speaking of a recent trip Down Under, he said: "I was able to get into a rhythm and I got a feel for the lifestyle and the quality of life there. It's just unbeatable, plus if you're raising kids, I can't imagine a better place."
