The guy doesn’t always have to make the first move! In fact, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber may not even be together right now if they did!

The British-Australian actress admitted in a new interview that she was the one who pursued her now longtime love at the Met Gala in 2005. “It was a lot more ballsy than I would ever normally be,” she revealed. “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 of years is going to pass by.'”

The 45-year-old added that she hinted at Liev to get her phone number, which “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.'”

The meeting happened eight years ago, and the couple has been together ever since. Although they are not married yet, they do have two sons together, six-year-old Alexander and four-year-old Samuel.
