22 Celebrity Couples Who Avoid Being Seen On The Red Carpet Together

Two types of relationships exist in Hollywood. There are individuals who joyfully display their love for each other on social media, on the red carpet, and everywhere they can, like Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, and Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.
Then, there's the polar opposite. We are talking about some famous couples that go against the trend of most famous couples, preferring to keep their private lives just that: private. It's difficult to see these celebrity pairs grace the red carpet, and it's nearly impossible to find any information about them online. From Jennifer Lawrence and her husband Cooke Maroney to Taylor Swift's very secret relationship with Joe Alwyn, here let's take a look at 22 celebrity couples who are rarely seen together on the red carpet.

Zach Braff and Florence Pugh started dating in 2019. The two celebrities have chosen to keep their relationship mostly private, though. The two had previously been the target of criticism due to their 21-year age gap.
The Midsommar actress once addressed the comments on Instagram. In a post, she says, “I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love,” adding the caption, “Being hateful is not trendy.”

Swift and Alwyn started dating in 2017 and once told Rolling Stone, “I think that in knowing him and being in the relationship I am in now, I have definitely made decisions that have made my life feel more like real life and less like just a storyline to be commented on in tabloids.”
