Maintaining a relationship with another human being is complicated enough without the added pressure of doing it in the public eye. Some celebrities choose to share their relationships with us, and that’s up to them, but some celebs like to keep their private lives private.
I bet you didn’t even know that some of the couples on this list were even an item until just now. Keep reading to learn more about Hollywood’s most secret marriages and relationships.
Ryan Gosling And Eva Mendes
Ryan and Eva keep their relationship very hidden from the public. Both parties refuse to talk about their relationship in public and on talk shows. These two have been married since 2011 and they have two children together, but they very rarely pose on the red carpet as a couple.
It’s a shame because they look so great together and I’d love to see them together more, but I get that they want their privacy.
Julia Roberts And Daniel Moder
Julia Roberts had very public relationships with Kiefer Sutherland, Lyle Lovett, and Benjamin Bratt, so it makes sense that she would want to protect her relationship with her current husband, David Moder.
Moder is a cinematographer, and he’s been married to Julia Roberts since 2002. They have three children together, but they’re hardly ever photographed together. We know next to nothing about their dynamic and their relationship, which is just the way this couple likes it.
Meryl Streep And Don Gummer
Meryl Streep is about as famous as a person can get. Most people in Hollywood find it hard to make a marriage last, but Streep has been married to her husband, Don Gummer, since 1978. They have four children together and are very much in love. All of their children have gone into the family business. Three of them have done some acting, and one of them is a working model.
Meryl often goes to award shows alone, though. She doesn’t like to mix work and family.
Javier Bardem And Penelope Cruz
Believe it or not, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz have been married since 2010. They have two children together, a son born in 2011, and a daughter born in 2013.
These two may be the most glamorous couple in Hollywood, but a lot of people don’t even know that they’re a couple. The duo has been acting opposite each other for close to thirty years, and if their chemistry on screen is any indication, they must have an incredible relationship.
Adele And Simon Konecki
Adele wrote a lot of revealing songs about her partners before Simon Konecki, but she hasn’t shared much about her current husband. Adele and Simon are another incredibly private pair. They had a child together in 2012 and secretly got married at some point in 2017.
They’ve never been photographed on the red carpet together and Adele hasn’t shared any photos of her family. She clearly values privacy in her personal life.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt And Tasha McCauley
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his wife, Tasha McCauley, performed together at Seth Rogen’s 5th annual Halloween Variety Show in 2018. We haven’t seen this couple out in public much, though. Tasha, who is a CEO who makes robots for a living, has decided to stay out of the public eye.
She and Joseph Gordon-Levitt have two children together. They have two boys, one born in 2015 and one born in 2017.
Maggie Gyllenhaal And Peter Sarsgaard
We don’t get to see Maggie and her husband on the red carpet very often, but these two clearly love and respect each other. They’ve even starred in some plays together and worked together on other projects. Maggie and Peter got married in 2009, and they have two daughters together.
Peter is actually a close friend of Maggie’s brother, Jake Gyllenhaal. Maggie and Peter met through Jake and the rest is history.
Katie Holmes And Jamie Foxx
These two look super secretive whispering to each other at a pre-Grammy gala. I don’t know if Katie and Jamie have ever officially confirmed their relationship, but we know they’ve been friends since at least 2006. They started their romantic relationship after Katie broke up with Tom Cruise back in 2012.
Apparently, these two are set to get married in Paris pretty soon. I assume we won’t get to see any pictures from the wedding…
Rose Byrne And Bobby Cannavale
Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale aren’t married, but they’ve been together since 2012. They have two kids together, — Rocco and Rafa, and they’ve somehow managed to stay out of the spotlight when it comes to celebrity couples.
Rose and Bobby are both gorgeous, talented actors, and it seems like they’re a match made in Hollywood heaven. I really hope that they can make this thing last. Maybe one day they’ll decide to tie the knot.
Daniel Craig And Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz was engaged to Darren Aronofsky for a while, and she starred in a whole bunch of his movies. They had a son together in 2006, but decided to go their separate ways in 2010.
That same year, Weisz began dating Daniel Craig. They got married in 2011 and in 2018, they had their first child together. Weisz was 48 years old at the time. The couple has mostly kept their relationship and their pregnancy quiet.
Carey Mulligan And Marcus Mumford
Did you know that Marcus Mumford of Mumford and Sons is married to actress Carey Mulligan? These two are rarely seen in public together, and Marcus rarely accompanies Carey to red carpet events.
These two have been married since 2012 and they have two children together— a daughter, Evelyn Grace, born in 2015, and a son, Wilfred, born in 2017. Do we think they’ll become actors like their mother or musicians like their father?
Kerry Washington And Nnamdi Asomugha
Typically, Kerry Washington struts the red carpet as a single lady, but in reality, she’s not single at all. She just doesn’t like to show off her relationship in public. Kerry has been married to Nnamdi Asomugha, a former football player, since 2013.
They keep their relationship quiet, but they have two lovely children together. Kerry is also a stepmom to Nnamdi’s son from a previous relationship. Kerry refuses to talk about her marriage in press interviews.
Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden
Cameron Diaz and Good Charlotte guitarist, Benji Madden, make an unlikely but sweet couple. The two married in 2015 but are hardly ever caught on camera together.
They got married in a Jewish ceremony at Diaz’s home in Beverly Hills, California, on January 5th, 2015, after being engaged for just seventeen days. They were introduced by her close friend, and now sister-in-law, Nicole Richie. Richie is married to Benji’s brother, Joel Madden.
Margot Robbie And Tom Ackerley
Margot Robbie met British assistant director Tom Ackerley on the set of Suite Française in 2014. They got married in a private ceremony in Byron Bay in December 2016. Now they live together in Los Angeles, but Margot and Tom didn’t walk the red carpet together until 2017. They still rarely pose for joint pictures.
These two know that privacy is important if you want to make a relationship last in Hollywood.
Irina Shayk And Bradley Cooper
Irina and Bradley had a baby together before they ever appeared on a red carpet together. The couple started dating in April 2015, and their daughter, Lea, was born in March 2017. They walked the Met Gala red carpet together the following year.
Irina was the first Russian model to grace the cover of the swimsuit edition of Sports Illustrated. Bradley and Irina value their privacy and they try to keep their relationship out of the spotlight.
Leighton Meester And Adam Brody
It’s easy to forget that Leighton Meester and Adam Brody are an actual couple and not just a “one true pairing” that we made up in our dreams. The O.C. and Gossip Girl collided in the best way possible when these two got married in 2014.
They had a daughter, Arlo Day Brody, on August 4th, 2015. Leighton has an Instagram account, but she doesn’t really share any pictures of her husband or her daughter.
Taylor Swift And Joe Alwyn
Taylor Swift has been in a few high profile relationships, but she’s making a very conscious choice to keep her current one under wraps. Taylor and her current bae, actor Joe Alwyn, have yet to walk a red carpet together.
We’ve caught a glimpse into this relationship through Taylor’s latest album, but I feel like we’re going to have to be satisfied with vague song lyrics for a little while longer.
Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson
Maya Rudolph has been in a relationship with director Paul Thomas Anderson since 2001. They have four children together— their oldest, Pearl, was born in 2005 and their youngest, Minnie, was born in 2013.
Paul Thomas Anderson is more comfortable behind the camera than he is in front of it, so these two have kept their relationship pretty quiet. Some things are meant for sharing and some things just aren’t.
Brooke Shields And Chris Henchy
Brooke Shields is married to Chris Henchy, who is a screenwriter and producer. They’ve been married since 2001 and have had two daughters together — but I bet this is the first time you’ve seen them in a picture together. They’re very private about their relationship.
These two met through mutual friends in 1999. Brooke Shields has been married before, so she knows how hard it is to make a marriage work in the public eye.
Karlie Kloss And Josh Kushner
Karlie Kloss is engaged to Josh Kushner, who just so happens to be Jared Kushner’s brother. These two have been together since 2012. I wonder if the Trump family is going to be invited to their wedding? I can only assume that Ivanka and Jared will be there.
We know that Josh and Jared don’t really see eye-to-eye when it comes to politics, but maybe they can put their differences aside for the sake of the family.
Sacha Baron Cohen And Isla Fisher
Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen have been together for nearly two decades. They’ve been married since 2010 and they have three children together.
These two have been able to make it work long-term because they keep their private life out of the limelight. Also, they live in the UK rather than Hollywood, which helps. I wonder if Sacha even gets recognized on the street because his characters are way more famous than he is.
Jesse Plemons And Kirsten Dunst
Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst met on the set of the FX series Fargo where they starred opposite each other as husband and wife. Dunst and Plemons are now engaged, and Kirsten gave birth to their son, Ennis Howard Plemons, on May 3, 2018, in Santa Monica, California.
These two are pretty private. Kirsten is active on Instagram, but she hasn’t posted very many pictures of Jesse. These two seem to know that it’s best to keep things quiet.
Jason Momoa And Lisa Bonet
That’s right, Khal Drogo and Denise Huxtable are married! The two have been together since 2005 and made it official, after having two children, in 2017. Lisa Bonet is also the mother of Zoe Kravitz, her daughter with singer Lenny Kravitz, who is only nine years younger than Jason Momoa.
These two are probably keeping things private for a reason. They don’t want anyone to criticize or threaten their relationship.
Nick Offerman And Megan Mullally
I think most of us already knew that the man behind Ron Swanson and the woman behind Karen Walker were a married couple. Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally tied the knot back in 2003. They haven’t walked very many red carpets together, though.
Like Lisa and Jason, they also have a 12-year age gap, typical in Hollywood but refreshing when the woman is the older of the pair.
Emily Ratajkowski And Sebastian Bear-McClard
Emily Ratajkowski might just be the most beautiful woman on the planet. How did Sebastian Bear-McClard get so lucky? These two eloped in 2018. Emily surprised her fans by announcing her marriage on Instagram.
Very few people even knew that these two were dating. Hopefully, popular media won’t eat these two alive now that they’ve been a little more open about their relationship. We wish these guys the best of luck!
Amanda Seyfried And Thomas Sadoski
Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski eloped just weeks before having their first child in 2017. These two started dating in 2016, a year after Amanda split from her boyfriend of two years, Justin Long.
Amanda and Thomas have kept their relationship, their marriage, and their pregnancy out of the public eye. Hopefully, this strategy works for them. I’d like to see them make this relationship last. Keeping it private takes some of the pressure off.
Paul Dano And Zoe Kazan
These two definitely have similar taste in movies. They’ve even collaborated on a few projects. Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan have been in a relationship since 2007. Zoe gave birth to their daughter, Alma, in August 2018, but nobody had any clue that she was pregnant. I mean, I’m sure she knew, but the public had no idea.
Paul told us the good news on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon after the baby was born.
Alexis Bledel And Vincent Kartheiser
Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser met on the set of Mad Men. Alexis guest starred on the show as a women Pete was having an affair with. They got married in 2014 and welcomed a son in 2015.
These two have been very private about their personal life. Neither of them are active on social media and they don’t walk red carpets together very often. It was pretty difficult to even a find a picture of them together.
Alison Brie And Dave Franco
Alison Brie played Vincent Kartheiser’s TV wife, Trudy, on Mad Men. She’s since gone on to star on the hit Netflix show Glow. Alison Brie is married to Dave Franco, James Franco’s brother and a pretty talented actor in his own right.
They kept this relationship quiet while they were dating, but now that they’re married, there seem to be more pictures of the two of them popping up online.
Allison Williams And Ricky Van Veen
You probably know Allison Williams from Girls and Get Out. You probably also know that she’s the daughter of America’s favorite newscaster, Brian Williams. Did you know that she got married in 2015?
Allison Williams is married to Ricky Van Veen, the co-founder of CollegeHumor and the current Head of Global Creative Strategy at Facebook. These two have been together since 2011. They keep their relationship pretty private online, but Allison did share a couple of pictures from their wedding on Instagram.
