    Sometimes, as you scroll through your social media feed, everyone suddenly seems devastated by the breakup of a celebrity couple you didn’t even know were together, let alone married. 

    Being constantly in the public eye, many celebrities put in a lot of effort to keep their relationships private. This is understandable, considering how intrusive paparazzi, media portals, and even fans can be in famous people’s lives. 

    The motivations to keep relationships private, or to be low-profile about them, pass through the desire to protect loved ones from the potential negative aspects of fame, have more control over the information about them circulating in the media, and even as an effort to keep their lives running as normally as possible.

    The thing is, many celebrities have successfully maintained a low profile about their relationships and surprised many people when updates about their relationships were published. In this article, you will learn about 10 celebrity couples you probably didn’t know have been – or still are – together. Check it out!

    Anne Hathaway is our forever sweetheart Princess Mia Thermopolis from ‘The Princess Diaries.’ Although the actress has been in the public eye for decades and has established a solid career as one of the most renowned Hollywood actresses, she is able to keep her personal life private.

Although the couple makes appearances together at events and on red carpets, they still manage to maintain relative privacy about their almost 10-year marriage. When asked about her husband in an interview for Harper’s Bazaar, Hathaway confessed, ‘I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life.’

    It is hard to imagine that probably one of the most talked about celebrities in 2023, the very star of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie, could keep personal details private. But Hollywood sensation Margot Robbie manages to do just that!

    The actress finds ways to manage and balance her super-publicized work with a private personal life. Margot Robbie met Tom Ackerley, a British film director, and producer ten years ago on the set of ‘Suit Française,’ where Margot played Celine Joseph, and Tom worked backstage as a director’s assistant.

    Not only did they instantly hit it off and build a solid relationship, but the couple also became business partners and co-own the production company LuckyChap Entertainment with a few friends. The company has been associated with producing critically acclaimed films like “I, Tonya” and “Birds of Prey.”

    Margot has stated that they had been friends for some time while she had feelings for him but was convinced that he would never like her back. They got married secretly in 2016 in Byron Bay, Australia. Margot Robbie later confirmed their union on her Instagram.

    Musician Billy Joel and supermodel and actress Christie Brinkley built a ten-year-long relationship back in the 1980s. Both of them were hot in the media, and their relationship was captured by paparazzi wherever they went. This is not such a private relationship, but the fact that it happened a while ago makes people forget that they were once one of the hottest media couples.

    They tried to escape the public eye and many times checked into hotels with fake names to avoid being another news headline. They first met in 1983 while vacationing on the Caribbean island, and Joel tried many assets to capture the model’s attention.

    Eventually, the musician succeeded in his attempts, and the couple got married in 1985 aboard a 147-feet yacht in New York. In December of the same year, they welcomed their daughter, Alexa Ray. After nine years of marriage, the couple divorced in 1994 due to allegations of not being able to reconcile their relationship with each other’s individual works and desires.

    The efforts to keep their relationship private were made from the wedding ceremony to their split up. 

    Actress Michelle Williams, known for her roles in ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ ‘Blue Valentine,’ and ‘Manchester by The Sea,’ married musician and songwriter Phil Elverum in a private ceremony in the Adirondacks in upstate New York in July 2018. 

    However, the couple split up shortly after, and they managed to keep their breakup private for a few months, as the news spread in April 2019, reporting that their relationship had ended earlier that year. Since 2020, the actress has been with director and producer Thomas Kail.

    Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are known for openly talking about a few struggles in their relationship and for maintaining an honest and open communication dynamic with each other.

    Their honesty with each other makes them one of the most beloved couples in Hollywood. They share a light and fun dynamic whenever they are together, and they have been with each other for a while now.

    They first met at a restaurant in Los Angeles in 2008 and got married in 2010, two years later. Over the past 15 years of their relationship, they have shown a lot of admiration for each other’s work in interviews, and Krasinski has admitted that he watched ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ where Emily Blunt plays Emily Charlton, over 70 times. 

    They have two daughters together and have attended premieres and events as a whole family a few times. However, when questioned about details on their relationship, the actress has stated that she would rather keep those pieces of information private, as she finds them too precious to be shared with, basically, the whole world.
