The duo’s separation is another in a long-streak of Hollywood splits this year – including Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, and most recently Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
However, Naomi had previously gushed about her romance with Liev – insisting they worked hard as working parents to keep their family life afloat.
She said: “We’re both interested in each other’s work. And we ask each other for advice, I trust his judgement and I like to think he trusts mine. I could be wrong.
“It’s about supporting the other. When both parents are in the creative arts, it’s not nine-to-five.
“Sometimes our schedules mean we spend a lot more time at home than most parents. And then there are times we have to travel for long periods.
“If one of us feels very passionately about a job, the other supports and takes over. That’s the nature of the profession. But we always make it work.”
