Naomi Watts - Naomi Watts Made First Move Towards Liev Schreiber

Naomi Watts went out of her comfort zone and was more "ballsy" to hit on her longtime boyfriend Liev Schreiber.

The Diana actress and her actor beau have been together since 2005, but if it wasn't for Watts having the confidence to make the first move, the two may have never been an item.

In an interview with Allure magazine, Watts describes the first time they met, which was at the lavish Met Gala held every year in New York City.

She admits, "It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be. Normally I want a guy to make the first move, and he wasn't. Then he got up to say he was leaving and I was like, 'Oh s**t. Probably another couple years are going to pass by.'"

The Australian beauty decided to take matters into her own hands, adding, "I was wildly attracted to him and his work, so I said something cheeky as he was about to walk out. I said, 'Don't you want my digits?' Because I couldn't possibly say, 'Would you like my phone number?'

"It made him laugh. He texted me five minutes later saying, 'Would you like to go for a drink now?' And I said, 'No, I'll meet you for breakfast tomorrow.'"

Watts and Schreiber have two sons together, Alexander, six, and Samuel, four.
