Liev Schreiber, Sons Bond Over 'Straight Up Boys Stuff'

Boys will be boys! At least according to actor Liev Schreiber, father of Alexander ‘Sasha’ Pete, 2, and Samuel Kai, 10 months, who tells Us Weekly that the trio’s quality time spent together is, more often that not, nothing more than good old-fashioned male bonding.

“We like dinosaurs a lot. We like to draw. We like cars. Pretty much straight up boys stuff.”

While Liev certainly knows how to have a good time with his sons, he admits when it comes to more domestic areas — like searching for the perfect Halloween costumes — he finds himself in uncharted waters.

Fortunately his fiancĂ©e, actress Naomi Watts, takes the lead without missing a single beat. “Naomi pretty much takes care of costumes,” he says. “She’s great at that.”

Next up for Liev is the action film Salt — due out in theaters in 2010 — costarring Angelina Jolie.

It always makes ma heart melt when i see this duo…….as a single parent whose baby’s fathar refuses point blank to be part of my son’s life…i find it comforting that there are father who value and think the world of their children, Naomi is one lucky lady and their boys are adorable.

It’s pretty obvious that Liev was talking about both boys here, so hopefully this will put an end to all the comments about Liev preferring Sasha over Kai. I could be totally wrong, but my guess is that Liev just isn’t a big “baby” person (not everyone is) and is more of a “kid” person. That would explain why he didn’t seem to gush about Kai when he was younger. :)

don’t think i’ve ever thought that liev prefers sasha over kai… just that he had to take on a bigger role w/ sasha when kai was born, like most dad’s of toddlers w/ newborns. he seems to truely enjoy his family!

Shelby on

I never got the impression that he “preferred” one child over the other, but I do think that a lot of dads just don’t know what to do with babies, until they’re a little older, especially if the babies are exclusively breastfed. We have 3 boys (the youngest is 6 months) and my husband is still like that–he certainly loves them all equally, and he’ll help when they’re babies and hold them, etc., but gets more comfortable as they get older and more interactive.
