10 Celebrity Couples that Like to Keep Their Marriage Private


In Hollywood, there are basically two types of couples: those like J-Zay and Beyoncé who feature prominently on the red carpet, and ones like Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes who rarely give us a glimpse of their married life even though they’ve been together for more than a decade. This article focuses on the latter. Here are 10 celebrity couples that you almost never see together.

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes

The aforementioned Ryan and Eva have been married since 2011 and have two daughters together, but the occasional paparazzi pic is the only evidence of this. It isn’t to suggest they are ashamed. In fact, when Gosling accepted a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture, his speech was all about his love for his family. He’s a dedicated family man for sure.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tasha McCauley

Gordon-Levitt is an extremely private guy, so it’s probably not a surprise that we hardly ever see him out in public with his wife Tasha, a scientist and CEO of a robotics firm. We know they have two sons, but they have never publicly revealed their names. Joseph has said he wants fans to focus on his characters and the stories they tell, not on who he is in real life.

Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem

Cruz and Bardem are among the biggest stars on the planet, and yet they have made a huge effort to keep their marriage under the radar. They’ve known each other for three decades and tied the knot in 2010, but they have both expressed the importance of keeping their relationship private. In fact, they credit the success of their marriage partially to the fact that they rarely discuss it in public.

Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha

When the actress and producer attends events, she always goes solo. Few realize she’s married to Asomugha, a retired NFL star who is considered to be one of the greatest Oakland Raiders of all time. Although she likes to keep her family life personal, she did a recent interview with Marie Claire in which she revealed how she met Nnamdi, and how much she loves her family and doing normal “mother” things like helping her two children with their homework.
