Life is imitating art for Gypsy actors; Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup.
Watts and Crudup, the actors, who play spouses on the Netflix series Gypsy, are now in real life dating!
According to an online report, a rep for the 48-year-old actress didn’t respond to numerous requests for comment on Monday, and a spokesperson for the 49-year-old actor had no comment on the issue.
Watts and Crudup arrived hand-in-hand at a café in Tribeca over the weekend. An eyewitness report, the couple “looked happy and were laughing a lot, then left again holding hands.”
Apart from working together in Gypsy, the actors have known each other for many years now.
It’s unknown when things turned romantic for Watts and Crudup. However, in Vogue Australia’s June issue, the actress said she was “single” after her 11-year affair with actor Liev Schreiber ended in 2016. Watts a mom of two said “I’m co-parenting,” and “I’m doing OK.” she added.
Following her breakup with Schreiber, Watts told the magazine, “There are good days and bad days.” Obviously, the friendly exes remain on “great terms.” She added “We’re trying to do our absolute best for the sake of the children, and we hope to keep moving forward in that way.” He’s a fantastic dad, a wonderful, wonderful man, and we still want the absolute best for each other.”
A month earlier, Watts told Red magazine that the idea dating was disheartening. It just seems completely not worth taking seriously and counterproductive and just not really in my world right now, she said. Possibly if things get more serious with Crudup (whose exes include Claire Danes and Mary Louis Parker), Watts will definitely share some couple pictures via Instagram.
The actress while speaking to the guardian recently said “People are going to attempt and interpret stories of mine in their own understanding and whenever they want to through the work I do, through what they read, through this story, through how I’ve represented myself in some speech, I haven’t done a great job of, or through a paparazzo I’ve lost my temper with and given the finger to. There’s constant scrutiny and judgment”. She concluded by saying “Instagram is a little way of doing it in safety, in my own time, in my own controlled way.”
