'Taking Woodstock' actor Live Schreiber admits he gets jealous of some of partner Naomi Watts' movie roles - because he wants to wear her outfits
Liev Schreiber wants to wear high heels to work.
The 'Taking Woodstock' actor has joked he is envious of his partner of four years, Naomi Watts - who he two children with - because she dresses up in glamorous outfits when she appears on the big screen.
The 42-year-old star is currently rehearsing for 'A View from the Bridge' Broadway show, where he will star alongside Scarlett Johansson - who is married to Ryan Reynolds.
When asked if it is awkward to be busier than their partners, Scarlett quipped: "I don't think Naomi is going for the same roles as Liev!"
When Liev confessed to wanting "a couple of roles she's played," Scarlett jokingly suggested it was so he could "wear the heels and the jewellery."
Liev confirmed: "Yeah!"
While he longs for a more feminine role, the actor-and-director feels there is no time for jealousy now he is a father to two-year-old Alexander and Samuel, one.
He told America's Time Out magazine: "Kids make a big difference. You want to be there all the time, and when you're both working, it's hard. You gotta negotiate with each other and support each other in that regard.
"I think it's harder when both of you are really busy. Like in any profession, it's difficult. You want to make sure you have time to invest in your family. It's a challenge but it's worth it."
