5 Celebrities Who Avoid the Spotlight

Preferring to stay out of the spotlight in order to lead more normal lives, these 5 celebrities say they do their best to keep their names out of the tabloids and don’t go to many star-studded parties either. Keeping a relatively low profile when they aren’t working and have to promote their latest work, these 5 stars try to stay away from the spotlight and enjoy ditching their fame in favor of a more relaxed existence.

Josh Duhamel

8th Annual March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon - Arrivals

Josh and wife Fergie try to keep their life out of the public eye: “We just genuinely love each other. We stay out of the spotlight as much as we can. So many times people are too in the spotlight, which puts too much pressure on things.”

Amanda Seyfried
70th Annual Golden Globes Awards NBC Universal Afterparty - Arrivals

Amanda isn’t interested in having her name everywhere: “I don’t want to become a brand and I certainly don’t want to have a persona. I don’t want to be in magazines everyday, because I don’t want people to get to know one thing. I feel like Angelina Jolie can still play a character and you can still get lost in it. Even though she’s all over the place, and that’s unfortunate for her. But luckily she still maintains enough anonymity for us to believe her.”

Daniel Radcliffe
57th Annual BFI London Film Festival - "Kill Your Darlings" Screening - Arrivals

Daniel won’t sign up to social media and doesn’t go to many celeb parties: “If you don’t, for instance, go to premieres that aren’t for a film you’re in, or don’t just turn up at other events and stuff like that, then that’s going to help to not fuel the interest. Also, I don’t have Twitter and I don’t have Facebook, and I think that makes things a lot easier because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you’re doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously.”

Georgia May Jagger
Thomas Sabo's Karma Beads and Sterling Silver Launch Party - Arrivals

Georgia was born famous and says she isn’t that interested in it: ”I never wanted to be in the public eye. Obviously, with my father and my mother, for my whole life I was aware of the trappings of being famous. It was always just there in the background.”


Keira Knightley
"Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" UK Premiere - Arrivals

Keira avoids big blockbusters so she can try to live normally out of the spotlight: “It comes to a point where you think: ‘What kind of film can I make that will allow me to live a proper life?’ and those tent-pole movies make it difficult. I do actually love blockbusters but that decision has a lot that comes with it that I’m not prepared to go with. I don’t think if a model is in an advertising campaign then she shouldn’t be able to walk down the street feeling safe.”
