Naomi Watts refuses to rush into marriage.

Liev gave me a beautiful ring, although I'm not wearing it right now

The 40-year-old actress - who has two sons, 18-month-old Alexander and seven-week old Samuel Kai, with partner Liev Schreiber - won't be pressurised into tying the knot because she isn't a fan of the institution.

She revealed in an interview with Parade magazine: "Liev gave me a beautiful ring, although I'm not wearing it right now. It's not like I've grown up having this dream of a fairytale wedding.

"My mother married twice and had two divorces. And Liev comes from the same kind of background. Maybe one day we'll just wake up and go, 'Hey, let's do this.' And maybe not. He and I have a family. We're very much together. We just don't have that certificate, and that's OK with both of us."

Despite her reluctance to walk down the aisle, Naomi insists she is deeply in love with Live, a "fiercely intelligent" man who she has "always been drawn towards".

The actress also opened up about her relationship with Heath Ledger - who died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in January 2008 - who she met on the set of 2002 movie 'Ned Kelly'.

She said: "It's still incredibly difficult. It was just something deep in his eyes. You could look into them, and they would tell a thousand stories in one glance. There was a wonderful mixture of power and fragility at work in everything he did, which just pulls you in. His strength didn't scare you. It intrigued you. And his fragility touched you."
