Actress Naomi Watts opens up about her recent split from long-time partner Live Schreiber.

Since their split, the couple has been famously friendly and even wished on each other's birthday.

"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," she said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph Australia on Saturday.

"I feel, whether you're famous or not, transitions are scary for anybody," she shared. "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."

The 48-year-old actress is the mother of two sons, 9-year-old Sasha and 7-year-old Sammy, with Liev Schreiber.

According to a report in Entertainment Weekly, The King Kong actress spent this year Thanksgiving with her sons at the family's beach house in New York. Currently, she has been filming her new Netflix series, Gypsy.
